The photos with which Us Magazine proved in 2005 that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were a couple were staged at the time with the cooperation of the actors themselves. At least that is what reality star Spencer Pratt claims, who states that a close friend of his worked for the magazine and knew about the deal.
Pratt and his wife Heidi Montag, who became famous with the reality show ‘The Hills’, have never even been averse to turning on paparazzi either. The reality star now says he started doing so because he knew Pitt and Jolie were doing it too.
“My two favorite celebrities staged the confirmation of their affair, I took that as a sign,” says Pratt, who confirms that over the years, he has tipped off paparazzi agencies himself quite often about possible snaps of him and his wife.
During the filming of the 2005 film Mrs. and Mr. Smith, there were many rumors that lead actors Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie had fallen for each other.
At the time, Pitt was still married to Jennifer Aniston. The two broke up at the beginning of 2005, after which Pitt indeed got involved with Jolie. That relationship did not last either: the couple, who have six children together, announced their separation in 2016.
