Holy mother of God, this is going to be… omg omg omg, I can’t even think straight and my heart is pounding, I’m so shocked. Angelina Jolie has filed for divorce from Brad Pitt. They have been together since 2005, and they married in 2014. They celebrated their second wedding anniversary less than a month ago, where they allegedly got a hotel room for a night. But now it’s over????? OMG.
Angelina Jolie has filed for divorce from Brad Pitt and the trigger was a conflict over the kids… TMZ has learned. Jolie filed legal docs Monday citing irreconcilable differences. She’s asking for physical custody of the couple’s 6 children. She is asking the judge to give Pitt visitation. It’s significant …she does not want Brad to have joint physical custody … only joint legal custody.
Sources connected with the couple tell us … Angelina’s decision to file has to do with the way Brad was parenting the children … she was extremely upset with his methods.
We’re told there was no alleged “third person” … her decision to file was solely over Brad’s interaction with their children. Jolie, who’s being repped by disso queen Laura Wasser, is not asking for spousal support. Jolie lists the date of separation as Sept. 15, 2016. They married in August, 2014. They’ve been together since 2004.
It’s just about the kids? It’s not about those Marion Cotillard rumors, that Marion and Brad got way too close while filming earlier this year? The way this is being worded… I have no idea. What in the world did Brad do to the kids? What’s even going on anymore? Brangelina Is Over. Hope is dead. There’s no more joy in the world.
Update: TMZ updated their story with this: “Our sources say, Angelina became “fed up” with Brad’s consumption of weed and possibly alcohol, and mixed with what she believes is ‘an anger problem’ became dangerous for the children.” Anger problems, drinking and weed? Hmm…
A few days ago, I was reading about how Kim Kardashian has been craving beignets and how Kris Jenner has basically told her that she’s getting fat during her pregnancy. I was going to write about it at some point, but then this popped up. Kim has given her fans yet another update on her terrible, miserable, heinous pregnancy. As it turns out, Baby Boy Kardashian-West is breech and Kim is worried about the delivery. Just know: this story made my stomach (and other parts) CLENCH. I seriously don’t know how so many of you ladies do this.
As Kim Kardashian West enters her 36th week of pregnancy, the reality star is opening up about the fact that her baby is breech — and all the ways she’s trying to get him to turn.
In a new blog post shared on her website and app Tuesday — which she admitted she wrote “while up at 4 A.M., a little anxious” for her delivery — Kardashian West says she’s “surrendered to the placenta issues” but that her latest concern is that her baby is currently in the wrong position for childbirth: His head is still facing upwards, and he was supposed to turn by 32 weeks. Though breech babies are usually delivered via C-section, Kardashian West, 35, has been exploring other options.
“As I lay awake late at night, researching, I’ve learned that you actually can deliver a breech baby and I feel fortunate that my doctor Paul Crane is one of the few doctors that still does this. They just don’t even teach it anymore,” she wrote, adding that Dr. Crane was her mom Kris Jenner‘s doctor and actually delivered Kardashian West herself.
Kardashian West, who is already mom to daughter North, 2, also mentioned she’d watched a documentary called “Heads Up” on breech delivery.
“I found it very interesting that I do have this option to deliver a breech baby as opposed to just jumping into a C-section,” she wrote. “Obviously, if it’s an emergency and for the safety of my son, I will get a C-section — but if I don’t need one, I’d rather not. I guess 4 percent of women are faced with [breech babies] — so, lucky me! It’s been hard because I usually go to my mom or [my sister] Kourtney [Kardashian] for baby and pregnancy advice, but they both — with nine total pregnancies! — have never experienced one of these crazy things.”
Though Kardashian West said her baby might be “just too big at this point” to turn (he’s over 7 pounds!), she has been trying “anything to still turn the baby,” including “intensive chiropractic work.”
“I lay practically upside down three times a day for 15 minutes,” she explained. “I play music in the right position and ice my belly in certain spots to get him to squirm out of the breech position. I even started accupuncture where I burn moxa (mugwort) on my pinky toe every day! I am even attempting hypnosis!”
Kardashian West also added that she will be trying “Version or ECV, which is a procedure to turn the baby from a breech position.”
“You should Google this and watch it because it looks so painful and scary and has to be done in the hospital,” she said. “So please wish me luck and pray the baby turns! This whole delivery gives me anxiety, not gonna lie. I hope the baby turns and all goes well but I’m prepared for anything!”
I believe her about the baby being breech. I do NOT believe her claims that she would love to deliver the baby vaginally and not via C-section. I’m sorry, I just don’t. Maybe that’s my own fear of all things labor-related, but if I found out that there was even one small problem with the potential birth plan, I’d be like, “Oh, too bad… go ahead and schedule the C-section.” I suspect Kim is the same way. I mean, why even bother pretending that she’s going deliver the old-fashioned way? And why not? I hate the pressure on women to have these horrific birth stories. I mean, do what’s right for you, but if I was facing what Kim’s facing – a breech position and placenta accreta and the strong possibility of an emergency hysterectomy – why not just schedule the damn C-section?
