Singer Melissa Etheridge, who is a longtime friend of actor Brad Pitt, has slammed Angelina Jolie and her legal team for how they are handling the news surrounding their highly-publicized divorce.The 55-year-old singer refused to agree with the allegations that Pitt had been abusive and physical with his son, reported People magazine.
“It breaks my heart that anyone would take something as personal as your marriage and your relationship and your rights to your children and do it as purposefully as I see it’s being done.
“There’s a way to be. I’ve gone through family courts. I’ve been twice around this block, and I know it really well, and I know when there’s some forethought to just how mean (you can be) and just how you’re going to put disinformation out there first,” she said.
Etheridge called the allegations against Pitt “completely unfounded” and “heartbreaking.” The singer also said she would love to reconnect with Pitt as they have not seen each other for a long time.
“I really hope that he reaches back out because there are a lot of us who haven’t seen him in 10 years,” Etheridge said. “And it was hard then. We all lost a friend,” she said.
Meanwhile, Actress Jennifer Garner, who is estranged with husband Ben Affleck, joked that she is dating Brad Pitt when asked by a pesky videographer. The 44-year-old star joked she and the “Allied” actor, who also recently split from his actress-wife Angelina Jolie, are dating during an outing in the Brentwood area, reported AceShowbiz.
When asked about her love life, Garner said, “Brad Pitt and I are dating.” On again being asked if she is really dating Pitt, she replied, “Yeah!” Garner and her female friend continued to giggle their way to the car with coffees in hands.
