If there’s one thing we’ve learned from the whole Brangelina breakdown, it should be that Angelina Jolie isn’t the monster the press made her out to be when she first began dating Brad Pitt. With this week’s news that Jolie is now dating once again, we say, good for you, Angie.
The mother of six (I’m tired just typing that) was often cast as the evil other woman in the Brad Pitt/Jennifer Aniston marriage break down, but let’s remember it was Brad that was the married party at the time, right?
Both Pitt and Jolie maintained that they were never together while Pitt was still with Aniston, but that should be old news by now. What’s not really old news (yet) is that Pitt was investigated for child abuse when his marriage to Jolie exploded in 2016. While Pitt was cleared of any wrongdoing, the situation, which ended up with Jolie looking after all six kids on her own following the separation, painted the actress and humanitarian in a wildly different light. Specifically, the light where she’s directing films, raising a soccer team, and, if these new dating reports are true, finding some ‘me’ time. Get it, Angie.
According to Entertainment Tonight, “Angie has told some friends she isn’t ready to date, but she has been seeing a handsome, older-looking man who is a real estate agent,” the source claims. “He isn’t a celebrity or high profile in any way.” Of course, if you’re Angelina Jolie, you’re likely dating, dare we say, the Brad Pitt of real estate agents.
“Angie was in a very bad place after [her] split [from Brad],” the source adds. “Just having another adult to spend time with has been helpful.”
Good for you, Angelina. After spending years with her name being dragged through the mud following the coupling of Brangelina, to dealing with her divorce from Pitt (regardless of what actually went down, divorce sucks), we’re happy to see Jolie finding a handsome, regular dude to hang out with on a Saturday night. Or maybe Saturday morning, in case he had an early morning real-estate showing the next day. #reallifedating
