Is Angelina Jolie finally willing to open up and dish dirt about ex-husband Billy Bob Thornton? Claims are being made that the actress is willing to talk about her life, love, marriage, and divorce in a new tell-all book, but are those hints and rumors accurate?
Not exactly. "A spokesperson for HarperCollins has told Us Weekly that the foreward to The Billy Bob Tapes: A Cave Full of Ghosts has been penned by the 'Tomb Raider' actress, whose current partner is, of course, Brad Pitt..." says Entertainment Wise.
"The publishing house boasts that the book will include "colorful tales of his modest (to say the least) Southern upbringing, his bizarre phobias (komodo dragons?), his life, his loves (including his heartbreakingly brief marriage to fellow Oscar winner Angelina Jolie), and, of course, his movie career"."
Jolie is expected to write the foreward as well as allow her ex to discuss their failed marriage.
But Angie talking about Billy Bob in glowing terms is not making her current partner Brad Pitt, father of their six celebrity kids, happy at all say the rumor mills.
Reports suggest he is "steaming mad" that Angelina Jolie would even consider putting her reputation on the line to help crazy Billy Bob Thornton make more money than he already does from his Hollywood films.
What's more, since Thornton supposedly wants to meet up with Jolie for a writers rendezvous in Berlin, Germany, Pitt is allegedly nervous that the former celebrity couple will do more than tape out a few short stories on their computer keyboards while hanging out in the hotel room.
To date, Angelina has rarely mentioned her divorce from the actor. They adopted her oldest son Maddox together but Brad Pitt has since adopted the child, making him the legal father (rather than Billy Bob). As such, the issue of their relationship and end is likely more complex than anyone suspects.
Angelina Jolie is contributing to Billy Bob Thornton's memoir. How will it affect her own reputation, relationship with her current love interest, or career long term to have her private life futher exposed to the press? Are her remarks about her ex likely to cause fireworks in the media or at home?
