The tabloids are in full swing grabbing what they can about celebrities and their struggling relationships. Recently, one tabloid reported the superstar Barbra (née Barbara) Streisand kicked her husband, James Brolin, out of the house they shared. Why? Because he dissed her at an event.
Streisand and Brolin attended the USC Shoah Foundation Ambassador for Humanity 20th anniversary dinner on May 7. The gala was held in Los Angeles and was held in honor of Obama, hosted by Conan O’Brien. The tabloid reported Streisand kicked Brolin out of the mansion they shared in Malibu because she was angry he humiliated her at this event.
Brolin allegedly acted as if he did not want to be at the event. According to a ‘close source,’ Brolin told Streisand “it always has to be about you,” and “what about me?” It was at that time he left the mansion, assumingly after she told him to get out. Streisand is involved in copious causes and charities which could have elicited Brolin’s remark to her.
The Streisand Foundation contributes to a variety of causes. One of her passions is the research and funding for heart disease in women. Along with expert cardiologists, she informed the lawmakers on Capitol Hill recently that a woman’s heart is different than a man’s. Unfortunately, policy implementation that focus on women’s hearts is grossly under-researched, misdiagnosed and is commonly left untreated. In 2012, Streisand founded the Barbra Streisand Women's Heart Center at the Cedars-Sinai Heart Institute in support of the disparity.
Whether the rumors of Streisand and Brolin having relationship struggles are true or not, celebrities are no different than the general population. Couples are advised to make an attempt at showing support for their partners’ passions.
Streisand has won numerous awards and has one child from a previous marriage to Elliot Gould from 1963 to 1971. She married Brolin in 1998.
