Hollywood star Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from Brad Pitt after he flew into jealous rages over her “close friendship” with dashing former British Foreign Secretary William Hague.
The Suffolk Gazette can reveal that Pitt could not abide his beautiful wife being by the side of the handsome politician during her many charity trips to the UK and beyond.
His jealousy was too much for former Tomb Raider star Angelina, who shocked the showbiz world by filing for divorce today, citing “irreconcilable differences”.
A close pal of Pitt’s told us: “Brad is quite geeky and plain-looking, some might say borderline ugly. But this William Hague guy is the stuff of female fantasy. Not only is he a powerful man, his chiselled face, smooth bare head and come-to-bed voice send women into a daze.
“Hague is known as a sex symbol in the UK, and Brad noticed Angelina was spending more and more time meeting him, while doing ‘charity things’. What’s any husband to think?”
William Pitt the Younger
Mr Hague, 55, pictured above with Angelina, once wrote a famed biography on William Pitt the Younger, who was Brad Pitt’s close ancestor – and Angelina always claimed this was a factor in her husband’s rages.
A friend said: “Brad did not like it when William Hague started poking around his family history, and this did not play well a few years later when he started seeing his wife for charitable work.”
Even when they were not working on charity things, Angelina, 41, and Mr Hague remained close and enjoyed a lunchtime date as recently as April.
Brad, 52, and Angelina — Brangelina as they are known to fans — have been together since 2004, but only married in 2014. They have six children.
