Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt Fixed Their Relationship In a “Secret Meeting” [Report]

Back in September of 2016, Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from Brad Pitt following an incident aboard an aircraft that remains shrouded in mystery.

The former couple has experienced their share of ups and downs in the years since, but those who know Pitt and Jolie best say there have been more downs than ups.

While they’ve mostly refrained from talking about their situation publicly, it’s common knowledge that Brad and Angelina’s divorce has been a messy one, with both parties taking action make life more difficult for the other.

For most of the past two years, Pitt and Jolie were not even on speaking terms, communicating instead through attorneys and professional mediators.

So the news that Brad and Angelina arranged a secret meeting in order to settle their differences has come as quite a shock to fans:

“Brad and Angelina actually set up a secret meeting at her house,” a source tells E! News.

“It’s the first time they have truly gotten together to make things work since their group therapy with the children. Brad and Angie’s meeting was a success.

“They are going to stay with the plan set forth through the courts.” 

The insider adds that it was Jolie who made the decision to attempt a detente with Brad:

“Angelina decided it was time to try to make things work and Brad was relieved and very ready for the offer,” the source continues.

“Brad has been dedicated to making peace throughout the process and now it finally seems like they are at a point where they can create a calmer situation for the kids.”

The timing of the truce is rather odd, as just last month, Jolie filed court documents accusing Brad of failure to pay “meaningful child support.”

The source claims that since that filing, Angelina reached the realization that in deciding to go nuclear against Brad, she was causing collateral damage to her children.

“Angelina created a very difficult situation for Brad and the children and she has finally realized her behavior backfired,” the insider claims.

“Angelina loves her kids very much and it seems like she felt threatened she might lose time with them and, in turn, she went on the attack. Unfortunately, everyone in the family has suffered,” the tipster continues.

“She started to see a change in the kids’ behavior because they missed their dad,” the source adds.

“The kids’ reaction to the divorce actually helped Angie try a different tact.”

While it’s unfortunate that it took Pitt and Jolie years to reach a mutually amicable co-parenting relationship, we applaud them for their efforts.

And much more importantly, we’re sure their kids will thank them.

Sofia Richie & Scott Disick: Here’s the Secret of Our Perfect Relationship

Back in June, Sofia Richie and Scott Disick broke up after roughly a year of dating.

The news didn’t really shock anyone, as no one expected this couple to last.

But to the surprise of many, Scott and Sofia got back together after just a few weeks apart.

Even more unexpected is the fact that two months later, Disick and Richie are still going strong.

It’s not just the 15-year age difference that made these two seem like such a longshot.

At the time they got together, Disick was in the throes of a bender that threatened to claim his life.

Many feared that he was turning to Sofia to be his savior.

That would be a lot of pressure for any new relationship, and considering Richie was still in her teens at the time, it was widely assumed that she would quickly decide she wasn’t up to the task.

Instead, two very unexpected developments occurred:

Sofia and Scott toughed it out through those shaky early days, and Scott made good on his promise to tone down his erratic behavior.

These days, as much as Sofia’s family might prefer otherwise, she and Scott are still going strong.

In fact, for the first time in their relationship, Sofia is speaking publicly about what makes this odd pairing work.

It seems she credits the (relative) longevity of her relationship with Scott to the fact that the 35-year-old father of three is her best friend first, and her boyfriend second:

“We are very happy, very lovey-dovey,” Sofia told Australia’s Sydney Morning Herald this week.

“We are best friends and that is mainly the strongest connection we have,” she added.

“We have always had that best friend connection and from there it has really worked out. I am so happy.”

So there you have it.

Obviously, Scott and Sofia have endured their share of rough patches, but it seems she’s endlessly optimistic about their future together.

Which is good because these two might have more tough times on the way.

As you may already know Kourtney Kardashian is newly single these days, having recently broken up with Younes Bendjima.

Sources close to the situation say Sofia has warned Kourtney to stay away from Scott, but anyone who knows Disick knows that he’s hopelessly drawn to his ex.

Perhaps interviews like this one are Sofia’s way of firing a warning shot over Kourtney’s head.

Dane Cook Jokes About Gross, Potentially Illegal Relationship with 19-Year Old

It’s not exactly groundbreaking news to state that Dane Cook isn’t funny.

Typically, however, our response to his terrible jokes is to roll our eyes or shake our heads.

When it comes to Cook making quips about his relationship with Kelsi Taylor, though, we need to be restrained from calling the police.

Cook, you see, if 46 yeas old.

Taylor is 19 years old.

The pair went public with their inappropriate relationship in January, at which time Cook referred to Taylor as a “gift.”

This week, meanwhile, in an Instagram Q&A with fans (We know, right? Who knew that Dane Cook had any fans?!?), the so-called comedian responded to a number of inquiries about his unusual romance.

How did they meet, for example?

“At a game night I host at my place,” Cook replied. “We were friends for a while and soon after fell in like with each (other) and then upgraded to love.”

So… they were friends for awhile?

And they actually started dating when Taylor was 18?

Which means Cook was in his early 40s and isn’t just sleeping with a teenager, but he’s sleeping with a teenager who he knew since she was maybe a sophomore in high school?

That is disgusting, borderline illegal and most definitely not a subject to joke about.

But Dane Cook has never met a bad joke he didn’t tell, so he continued…

What advice can Cook give to others in a relationship that involves a large age difference?

The only thing you have to do is plan that your deaths will be somewhat far apart,” he wrote back.

cook joke

Do their families approve of the relationship?

“I love her family and we are pretty close and go to dinner and hang,” Dane responded, adding:

“My family pretty much all died years ago but @_courtneycook_ my sister likes Kelsi a lot.”

What do they like most about each other?

“Kelsi is smart, kind, creative, loyal & honest. As for me I think Kelsi would say I’m tolerable.”

Back in February, in an Instagram caption, Cook noted that Taylor “is warm hearted, smart, sincere & more than anything else we just click.”

He added at this time:

“I have to say I’m the happiest I’ve been in a long time in both my career & personal life.”

Kelsi is an aspiring singer who just released her new album, “Fear of Yourself.”

She has also performed background vocals for Grammy nominees such as Demi Lovato and Little Big Town.

Cook, meanwhile, has dated such stars as Jessica Simpson, Nicole Scherzinger, Julianne Hough and Raquel Houghton.

If Taylor makes him happy, that’s great we guess.

And it is conceivable that two people at these stages of their lives could find true love with one another. Once again… we guess.

But there’s also something sketchy and flat-out gross about a grown man sleeping with a teenager. There just is.

Anyone out there disagree?

The Bachelorette Couples: Ranked By Relationship Length!

If The Bachelorette spoilers are any indication, Becca Kufrin and Garrett Yrigoyen from Season 14 may have a real shot at love that lasts.

Specific issues regarding Garrett's social media history aside, the two seem head over heels in love, so the odds of a wedding are good.

Or at least better than average.

If you just look at the venerable franchise's track record, Becca and Garrett's chances for long-term success are mixed at best.

Why do we say that?

Isn't it obvious? This is a dating competition throwing two people together under a pretense that is literally impossible to sustain.

Can they transition into real life, establish a new normal and make it work? They can, but often times, they fall short of that goal.

We have ranked the 14 stars of The Bachelorette based on who was most successful at finding love during her stint as ABC's queen.

See how they stack up from worst to first, and tell us whether you think Barrett will end up a success story or cautionary tale …

1. Jen Schefft

Bachelorette Jen Schefft broke up with winner Jerry Ferris on the After the Rose special because she just “wasn’t feeling it.” Not even making it to the day after the finale? That’s a low bar set for everyone else.

2. Emily Maynard

Emily Maynard and Jef Holm broke up just a few months after his proposal in 2012. He was never the right guy anyway. Should’ve picked Sean Lowe. Not that she or Sean (who is happily married to Catherine Giudici, who he met on The Bachelor) are overthinking it right now. Emily has since married and had a bunch of kids with Tyler Johnson.

3. Becca Kufrin

It’s too soon to tell how long Becca Kufrin and Garrett Yrigoyen will last, but they’re off to a good start? They’re one of seven Bachelorette couples still together, by our calculations, including the last three.

4. Andi Dorfman

Leah Messer Flaunts Relationship With Scandalous New Boyfriend on Instagram!

Leah Messer’s love life is a subject of constant fascination among Teen Mom 2 fans.

For a while there it looked as though Leah would get back together with Jeremy Calvert, but when that reconciliation fizzled out, Ms. Messer quickly rebounded.

These days, Leah is dating Jason Jordan, and while he seems to make her immensely happy, some fans have taken issue with the budding romance.

Over the weekend, Leah documented her latest couple’s getaway on Instagram, and some fans saw the pics as an opportunity to reiterate their complaints.

For one thing, Jason is much older than Leah (she’s 26; he’s 38).

It’s not the kind of cradle-robbery that makes you want to alert the authorities, but it’s enough of an age gap to raise a few eyebrows.

Especially since despite the fact that he’s pushing 40, Jason still seems to have quite a bit of growing up to do.

Naturally, once word of the relationship went public, fans started doing their research and dug up everything they could about Jason.

The most interesting thing they unearthed was a series of YouTube videos in which Jason played a character named West Virginia Meth Man.

Now, as far as we know, Jason never dabbled in meth himself.

And it appears he was just poking fun at some of the more, um … colorful residents of his home state.

Still many found the skits to be in poor taste, particularly one video in which Jason (as Meth Man) commented on the Ray Rice domestic abuse scandal.

“Just want to make a little comment about Ray Rice,” quoth Meth Man.

“Think he can go around punching women in the mouth, knocking them out cold. When I was high on meth one time I did that and nobody got mad. They just expect it out of me!”

Now, that’s obviously not the most tasteful joke, but anyone accusing Jason of condoning violence against women would be willfully misrepresenting the bit.

Should he have just refrained from joking about domestic violence at all? Probably?

But the crux of the gag is that only the most repugnant individuals — your Ray Rices and your Meth Mans — would engage in such behavior.

To be clear, the Meth Man routine isn’t particularly funny, and Leah is probably overjoyed by the fact that her boyfriend has retired the character.

But a few seriously unfunny skits shouldn’t be a deal breaker — otherwise, Ariana Grande would have to dump Pete Davidson! Zing!

Khloe Kardashian & Tristan Thompson: Struggling to Save Relationship

Back in April, Tristan Thompson was caught cheating on Khloe Kardashian while she was nine months pregnant with his child.

It’s sort of thing that would serve as a dealbreaker for about 99 percent of the people on the planet, but remarkably, Khloe has decided to stick it out and make things work with Tristan.

According to People magazine, Khloe and Tristan recently began couple’s therapy.

One insider says the troubled twosome have been “working hard” to repair their relationship — but it seems they’re meeting with mixed results.

“One thousand percent they are working through couple’s therapy,” Kris Jenner’s longtime friend Lisa Stanley revealed in a recent interview.

“You can’t just earn trust back in two months.”

Stanley says Khloe’s first priority is keeping her family intact.

But she’s also considering her public image.

“[Khloe] doesn’t want to look a fool. She was a fool once with Lamar, and she didn’t want to do it again,” Stanley said.

She went on to say that Khloe has had no trouble justifying her decision to give Tristan a second chance.

“Khloe was always going to try to make this work, for a plethora of reasons,” she told the interviewer.

“The first reason is she has a child now, and she feels very connected to [Tristan] in that way. The second reason is she loves him. She clearly loves the man.”

It sounds like Stanley is in support of the relationship — but Khloe’s mom and sisters reportedly don’t feel the same.

Sources close to the family say the Kardashians issued Khloe an ultimatum after Tristan was caught cheating:

Basically, they went full-intervention and told Khloe that if she continues to date Tristan, they’ll cut off all contact with her.

These days, however, it looks as though they’ve backed down from that position.

Khloe and Tristan are living in LA during the NBA offseason, and sources say they’ve been spending a lot of time with her family.

Last month, Kim even forced Tristan to re-follow her on Instagram in a humorous video that was then posted online.

So it sounds like these two might actually pull off the impossible and make their relationship work.

It’s almost enough to make you forget how bad Tristan’s cheating was in the first place.

“Tristan has been consistently cheating on Khloe,” a source said to People at the time.

“He’s a serial cheater. And there will be more women to come out of the woodwork.”

Yes, Thompson didn’t just slip up once — he was caught messing around on Khloe in multiple cities with several different women.

We’re not here to judge, and obviously, no one really knows what goes on in their relationship aside from them.

We just hope Khloe considers that every time she contemplates getting married to Tristan.
