Lawsuit May Prove Angelina Jolie + Brad Pitt Got Busy While He Was Still Married
Affianced couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have never hidden the fact that they fell in love on the set of their film 'Mr. and Mrs. Smith' while Pitt was still married to Jennifer Aniston, but over the years, Jolie and Pitt have insisted they kept things in their pants until he and Aniston split.
But a recent lawsuit may have just spoiled the story.
She's suing the embattled News Corp. -- owner of British tabloid The Sun and the now-defunct News of the World -- for hacking into her phone and using information in voicemails left by Jolie to write stories later published by the rags.
"On April 1, 2005, while Plaintiff [Huthart] was in Los Angeles, a story appeared in The Sun entitled ‘Brad’s 4M Pad Is Jolie Nice.’ Upon information and belief, no one except Brad Pitt’s bodyguard, Ms. Jolie’s bodyguard, their respective personal assistants and Plaintiff knew that Brad Pitt and Ms. Jolie were now an ‘item,'" Huthart's lawsuit claims.
Huthart believes the only way both organizations could have known such information about the budding romance -- including the time they checked into a hotel as a married couple while promoting their film -- is to have hacked into her private voicemails.
Whether or not News Corp. is guilty, it's certainly not the first time it's been sued for breaking into phones to gather information -- as you'll recall, phone-hacking scandals are what led to the closure of the 168-year-old News of the World in July of 2011.
