This is quite possibly the funniest story to ever come out of the Angelina Jolie - Brad Pitt - Jennifer Aniston love triangle for the past few years. As we know, Angelina and Brad have many children together, children who were bound to grow up and ask questions once they were old enough to read the tabloids or hear about them.
Considering that the love triangle is still a hot topic for most tabloids, it would have been difficult for Brad and Angelina to raise their kids in relative ignorance, and I’m actually surprised that it took so long for the kids to start asking questions. But alas, the period of bliss has ended and the floodgates have been opened.
According to Wendy Williams, who discussed all of this on her chat show Friday, Maddox Jolie-Pitt [Brad and Angelina’s eldest child] asked Brad and Angelina the dreaded question – ‘Who is Jennifer Aniston?’
Maddox is 12 years old now, and he obviously has his own friends outside of their tight family unit. So when he was hanging out with his friend, his friend apparently showed him an online article about his dad’s ex-wife, Jennifer Aniston. Apparently, when Maddox asked his parents about Jennifer, Angelina was so stunned that she ran out of the room and made Brad go talk to their son. According to Wendy, both Angelina and Brad had been so careful to block any knowledge of Jennifer from their children that they even put an Internet block on anything relating to her. For example, if the children had ever typed ‘Jennifer Aniston’, the results basically wouldn’t come up.
Going overboard? Well, some might think so, but how on earth are they going to explain this to their not-even-teenage child? ‘Uh, sorry kiddo, I used to be married to this other woman named Jennifer Aniston, but I cheated on her to get together with your mom. But hey, it’s all in the past. Stop reading the tabloids.’
Unless they tell him the truth, he’s going to get the twisted and warped version from his friends, or worse, the tabloids and/or the Internet… or CDL!
