Hollywood was abuzz when Angelina Jolie demanded Brad Pitt cut ties with Selena Gomez following their allegedly flirtatious exchange. The incident, which first captured public attention in 2016, has resurfaced, stirring the pot once again in the celebrity circuit.
Sources close to the situation revealed the tension rippled through the A-list ranks when a seemingly innocent interaction triggered an ultimatum. The epicentre of this drama dates back to the Golden Globes after-party in 2016, where a snapshot of Gomez and Pitt deep in conversation went viral.
Selena, donning a chic white maxi dress with a daring thigh-high slit, was pictured alongside a dapper Pitt in his classic black tuxedo. The two reportedly discussed Pitt's role in the acclaimed drama, "The Big Short," an exchange Gomez excitedly shared with her Instagram followers.
Jolie's Ultimatum: No Contact
Despite the seemingly benign exchange, Angelina Jolie's reaction was far from pleased. The National Enquirer reported a source's claim: "Angie blew a gasket when she saw Selena’s Instagram and was informed about how Brad and Selena flirted so shamelessly." Further fuelling the fire, Gomez was alleged to have quipped about Pitt being her "future husband," a jest that did not sit well with Jolie.
As the rumour mills churned, reports emerged that Jolie had not only expressed her disapproval but had firmly instructed Pitt to sever all professional and personal connections with Gomez. This directive reportedly dashed the hopes of many fans eager to see the duo collaborate on the silver screen.
Post-Split Lives Unfold
The personal lives of Pitt and Jolie have been subject to intense scrutiny, particularly following their high-profile split in September 2016, which was finalized in 2019 amidst a tumultuous custody battle over their six children.
Despite these challenges, both actors have continued to navigate their personal lives, with Pitt being linked to Ines de Ramon since 2022. While there are rumours of him introducing Ramon to his children, insiders suggest he is treading cautiously on that front.
Meanwhile, Selena Gomez has been in the limelight for her romantic endeavours, briefly linked with Drew Taggart, and more recently, her vibrant social circle that includes luminaries like Taylor Swift and Brooklyn Beckham.
Adding a layer of intrigue, Gomez recently made headlines for liking a post by Jolie regarding the conflict in Israel, an action contradictory to her announced social media hiatus. This saga of star-crossed interactions and the ensuing fallout underscores the relentless scrutiny faced by those in the Hollywood sphere, where a single image or comment can escalate into a narrative with lasting repercussions.
