Brad Pitt And Angelina Jolie Sue News Of The World Over Split Story

Posted on Mon Feb 8, 2010 11:30 AM PDT

brangiesuenotw.jpg After stepping out at the DGA Awards last weekend and the Super Bowl yesterday, we began to get the hint that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are still together and happier than ever. Well, in case we needed any further clarification, the couple is now suing News Of The World for libel after they ran (and refused to retract) a story that the two had split.

On January 23 NOTW reported that the couple would separate, divide their assets and share custody of their six children. However, the couple's attorney Keith Schilling calls the allegations "false and intrusive," and added that the paper has failed to meet "reasonable demands" for an apology. Schilling says the British tabloid would not give in to requests to retract the story, which was "widely republished by mainstream news outlets."

Schilling added that Sorrell Trope, the attorney who allegedly advised the couple on their split deal hasn't even met with them, and in a letter quoted in the statement, Trope wrote, "I have had no contact from... Angelina Jolie and / or Brad Pitt. I have never met... your clients or had any involvement with either of them. The foregoing is true with respect to all other members of this firm."

While the lawsuit certainly sends the public a very clear message, what about Brangelina's behavior at the Super Bowl last night? I mean, they weren't exactly being subtle about the PDA, so it's almost like they're trying waaaaay too hard to convince us that they're fine. Any chance that they were overdoing the acting? Or is this the real deal? After all, these two seem to be masters at manipulating the media!

Oops! Better luck next time Jen!
