Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt suing over breakup stories



Tbd-brangelina020910 The Juice* hasn't been re-reporting stories that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are splitting up, drawing criticism from, well, no one, really, but there's a very good reason we were ignoring all of them: They are now suing News of the World for making up stuff about them. Advantage: The Juice*.

Brangelina's lawyer, Keith Schilling, said Monday they've started proceedings against NOTW for making "false allegations about their relationship," People says. "We can confirm unequivocally ... that the allegations published by the News of the World are false as well as intrusive," Schilling said in a statement.

Furthermore, divorce lawyer Sorrell Trope, who was alleged to have been chosen as a mediator, confirmed he has not been contacted by the couple. This will all get tied up in Britain's notoriously lax court system for a spell, so don't expect to hear Brangelina's breaking up again for at least another four or five months.
