Our moms react to the Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt divorce news


This morning, TMZ reported that Angelina Jolie has filed for divorce from Brad Pitt, her partner of more than 10 years, with whom she shares six children. I know. Take a moment; I’ll wait.

The dissolution of the most A-list couple since Adam and Eve is a pop culture bombshell whose shockwaves span generations. We wanted to find out how our elders were taking the news—so, in the proud reporting tradition of Woodward and Bernstein, we texted our mothers. Here’s how eight Fusion staffers’ moms reacted to the demise of Brangelina.

It remains to be seen what our dads think about Brangelina, but you’ll be the first to know.
