In a new tell-all biography of Angelina Jolie, author Andrew Morton says that as a 16-year-old, Angelina bedded her mother’s boyfriend. According to the book, Jolie’s mother, Marcheline Bertrand, ended her relationship with the man when she found out, but the U.K.’s NOW magazine says that she and Angelina “struggled for years to repair their damaged relationship.” Does this remind anyone else of the late-’90s “General Hospital” storyline involving Carly Roberts and her estranged mother Bobbie Spencer? Anyway, Bertrand died a few years ago and Jolie has always made it seem like the two were extremely close, even naming her youngest daughter Vivienne Marcheline. According to the tabloid, Jolie’s brother, James, just found out about the decades-old affair and is, like, super pissed at his big sis. I’m gonna go out on a limb and say that if this story is true and Jolie did bone her mom’s boyfriend — when she was underage, by the way — I think it’s likely her mom forgave her pretty quickly, given the far deeper issues Jolie has admitted to struggling with as a teen.

Most think of Gucci and see interlocking G’s, horsebit hobo bags, or that red and green stripe. But there’s an entire sordid past of the Gucci family, which Tom Ford and Frida Giannini have nothing to do with – and it’s not about design. In 1995, the heir to the Gucci throne, Maurizio Gucci, had his life cut short when he was brutally shot. Behind the murder? Apparently, his wife Patrizia Reggiani set the plot for his early death. While she faced 29 years in prison, the hired assassin earned a life sentence for the murder and Patrizia’s psychic, who contacted the killer, was sent to jail for 25 years.
Sounds like a movie, no? Well, Fox 2000 thinks so, and Angelina Jolie has been approached to play the distressed wife. As for Maurizio? Leonardo DiCaprio is the first choice, but we’ll have to wait to see if that works out. Either way, a Gucci drama will be a welcome addition to the influx of fashion films on movie billboards these days. [Variety]

Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel are reportedly donezo. Though nothing has been officially confirmed and the couple was seen together earlier this week, it would be a slightly shocking breakup, mostly for the alleged claim that Rihanna is JT’s other woman. After three years of on-again, off-again for Jessica and Justin, all it took was some sightings with the feisty singer to launch a truckload of rumors. [Terra] Though they might not be over IRL, it reminded us of some other shocking celebrity breakups! Keep reading »
Nerve.com recently interviewed Spencer Pratt and learned the reality TV “star” has a lot sex and relationship advice to dole out. When asked what Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie could learn from his successful relationship, he replied:
I think that since their relationship was founded on infidelity, their structure, their foundation is always going to be impossible. She’s always going to be thinking, “Wait. You already did this to Jen. Are you gonna do this to me?” Thank God I don’t live that life, because I don’t see how you can keep that marriage together. Personally, if I got together with my wife after cheating on my last wife, I’d definitely think my wife is a shady little hussy who could be cheating on me any time.
Spencer Pratt is a way better man than Brad Pitt, see, because instead of basing his marriage on infidelity, he’s based it on inauthenticity and an appalling lack of depth. [via Nerve] Keep reading »
If the weekly tabs aren’t accusing Angie and Brad of breaking up, the rumors are that they’re expecting. This week, the buzz is that Angelina’s showing signs she might be pregnant. The evidence? At the Inglourious Basterds premiere in L.A. on Monday night, her arms didn’t look like the sticks they normally do! Also, she was “bubbly, fun and … nice.” When is Angelina ever nice? When she’s pregnant, duh! Despite looking nothing but trim in a sexy, black leather dress — a typical old-school Angie getup — she sent tongues a-wagging when she skipped the champagne while Brad enjoyed his beer all night.
