What is up with our local celebrities today? Normally docile, they seem to be making headlines for all the wrong reasons. First Lil W---e disses the Saints, and now Us magazine claims that part-time resident Angelina Jolie hates this town:
The Big Easy is nothing but a big headache for Angelina Jolie. She and her partner, Brad Pitt, purchased a home in New Orleans in 2007 -- but an insider tells Us Weekly that an irked Jolie "calls it 'his house.'"
It seems that the resilient Louisiana city isn't Jolie's cup of tea, and it threatens to drive a wedge between her and Pitt, 46. "Brad loves spending time in New Orleans, but Angie doesn't," the source divulges in the new issue of Us Weekly. "They fight because of it...she keeps yelling at him that she hates New Orleans and never wants to go back."
Without any sourcing other than an "insider," I'll choose to disbelieve it -- Brad Pitt's contribution to the 9th Ward is well-known, and everyone I've ever talked to around the French Quarter who had a Pitt-Jolie sighting or interaction said the family were extremely nice and about as down-to-earth as you could get, given their circumstances.
After all, if you're held in high esteem by the counter staff at the Verti Marte, you're A-OK in my book.
