Pitched battle: Jolie loses opening round
Angelina can't really have anticipated the pity there would be for Brad, says Sarah Caden, when she started the divorce war
The gloves were off once Chelsea Handler called Angelina Jolie a "f*****g lunatic", last Wednesday.
The gloves had been off in the attacks on Brad for a whole day at that stage and yet, no real damage had been done. The previous day, Tuesday, Angelina Jolie had filed for divorce from the actor and then the rumour mill, apparently fuelled by her 'side', began. She cited "irreconcilable differences" on the divorce papers, but one of her lawyers later said that her concern was the "health of the family".
Then there were the rumours concerning Brad - his alleged affair with Marion Cotillard on the set of their as yet unreleased film, Allied, along with talk of drinking and taking drugs and outbursts of rage with the six kids.
