Angelina’s Adoption Plans Destroyed Her Marriage To Billy Bob Thornton
Many people would argue that Angelina split from Billy Bob Thornton because, let’s face it, she’s Angelina Jolie and he’s Bill Bob Thornton. She’s much more suited for a sexy A-list Hollywood stud like Brad Pitt, but Billy Bob’s ex-wife says Angelina’s adoption plans are the reason he split. Billy Bob Thornton's ex-wife, Melissa deBin-Parish is claiming that Thornton and Angelina Jolie separated when the actress decided she wanted kids. She tells Star Magazine quote: “I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that he did not want to be around children back then. Look at the timeline: she adopted Maddox and then, [Billy] was gone." Parish was married to Thornton way back in 1978, and said she was surprised to hear that he and Angelina even got together because it seemed like a quote "odd pairing....I always wondered why they were attracted to each other. Here she is, this stunning woman. The two of them are total opposites...I thought it was baffling."
