but these rumors are starting to sound serious.
The Brangelina break-up rumor continues to be the only gossip that matters, but we'll carry on anyway, or else the Aniston wins. Sure, Brangelina's rep denies that the pair has split. But The Sun has jumped on News of the World's initial break-up claim, with a source who says Brad's brother Doug convinced him to leave Angie over Christmas: "They barely spend time together and when they do it is very fraught. They want different things out of life." Brad's family remains resolutely Team Jen, and his desire to move permanently to New Orleans has also caused friction. Persuasive arguments for everlasting Brangelina do, however, abound. For instance: Ian Halperin, author of Brangelina: The Untold Story, says it's over and he's always getting stuff wrong. We'll keep a chorus of weeping Nepalese orphans on call, just in case. The more troubling question: Will we survive a Brangelina break-up?
