Looks Like Another Halperin Prediction Right On The Money – Brangelina Toast!

Posted on January 24th, 2010 by HisHighness in IUC:Entertainment, IUC:Exclusive

Brangelina_Ian-HalperinIn my new book I predict the couple would break up soon. I was heavily criticized, similar to the way the world reacted in December 2008 when I said the great Michael Jackson had only six months to live. (READ THIS)

    Good job Ian!

    Better break out your favorite interview suits and shades, you’ve got about 12 hours before the phone starts ringing incessantly.

  3. v said on January 24th, 2010 at 2:11 am

    Fat ass Perez Hilton is already denying the story.

  4. Kate said on January 24th, 2010 at 3:00 am

    Yes notice he has no source lol , every headline on almost every publication on the net has this story and yet he thinks he is breaking that it is not true.

    Their reps were already contacted by another publication and they were told, “it is a private matter”.

    please fade away Perez.

    Congrats Ian! Now I hear the dirt is about to come tumbling down.

  5. Truth said on January 24th, 2010 at 3:10 am

    This time the story can’t go away because it’s being published by mainstream papers and not the tabs.

    All the denials from Perez Hilton, Trevor Neilson and People are desperation by Angie because she can’t accept the fact that it’s over both privately and in the public eye.

    Ian will likely be on ET and The Insider real soon.

  6. Lauren said on January 24th, 2010 at 3:13 am

    If this is true, I hope they do what is best for the kids.

  7. Truth said on January 24th, 2010 at 3:34 am

    ATTN: Ian

    Mainstream wire services are reporting the story.

    Report: Pitt, Jolie have signed agreement

    Whatever will happen to the loonies? Wll they now blame Jen for the break-up?
    Oh, that’s right, one idol of clay is just as good as another. So, no kool aid, then?

    IMO, it may be a boost to her career; esp. if her publicists portrays her as the noble mother left with her kids to raise. It will require more photo-ops than is usual, for her.

    But I still like the image of Braddie in his diapers. Thanks, Ian for that one.
    Also have the image of him flying high upon achieving his freedom!

    Somehow I knew and hoped they wouldn’t last. You can’t cause so much pain and suffering to other people at the inception of your relationship and yet believe that you can build something for eternity – especially on the corpse of a marriage that could have survived if someone as weak and careless as BP never met someone as ruthless and pathetically self-absorbed as AJ. If you want something lasting, start it with good intentions, honesty and tact – but most of all, with someone available you love for who he is and not for how good he is for your career. The very basis of this relationship was rotten to the core from the start – too much lust, too much ambition, too much indifference to other people’s feelings. I will never forget how revolting the smear campaign against Jennifer Aniston was – all of a sudden, instead of having everybody’s sympathy and support, she began to get some of the most hideous innuendos I’ve ever heard; it was as if, all of a sudden, she was sitting before the bar for losing her husband to another woman while the other woman was portrayed all over the press as the most noteworthy, genuine and admirable person in decades. And all those Brangelunatics who were born overnight to spill tons of poison in her face, so AJ would be looking great – is there anything more disgusting in Hollywood history? And is there anything more disgusting than the brains of Geyer Kosinski and James Haven, who stood behind all this?

    Now my next hope is that the Brangelina fan club splits in two because I have a dream – I want to see their membership of troubled teenagers and ex-homewreckers who believe that “you can’t break a happy marriage” take each other by the throats as if they were never the best of friends. I’d pay to see that and I want a seat in the front row!

    I have a dream now!

    Hollyweird marriages break up everyday so the J/P union didn’t faze me. I was a Pitt fan and thought, I wonder if that poor sucker knows what’s in store for him. Then that horrid W spread came out and I was repulsed. Then the rag mags took a turn and started shredding Aniston and praising Jolie. It got so obvious I cancelled my subscriptions (I’ve kept them in the bathroom for years). Then the bloons started bashing her and anyone who wasn’t a Jolie butt kisser. They are one nasty bunch. Thanks to the bloons I paid for my first Aniston movie, I wanted to see how a poor broken pathetic hag acted in a romcom and I must say she did an excellent job, she looked happy and healthy despite her barren dusty womb. I feel sorry for these children but they were screwed either way, it saddens me that my country helped this couple obtain more children to add to the mess. Taking someones husband isn’t nice but it happens. Trying to destroy the ex just makes you evil. Congrats to you Mr. Halperin, I loved your book but thought you were to nice to them.

  11. marty said on January 24th, 2010 at 7:50 am

    Thank you Ian. It looks like your book ‘Brangelina’ opened some eyes to the truth. Here is another media outlet praising you for your
    book: http: http://www.showbizpy.com/article/194780/angelina-jolie-back-with-lesbian-lover.html
    Now the media hopefully stop ‘drilling’ the unjustify treatment of JA and give her the praise she deserves for enduring this painful ordeal. Finally justice is done! Thanks Ian!!

  12. Tamara said on January 24th, 2010 at 8:32 am

    So, how is this going to play out? Right now they aren’t commenting on the News of the World article, or anything else for that matter. Is Jolie going to get herself and her kids to a safe place (Miraval) to weather the chyt storm or is she going to use this as a PR tool to promote Salt?

    The fact that they aren’t attending the awards shows is a silent validation of their split, they are all over Inglorious Basterds, and yet Pitt isn’t there with the rest of the cast. They won best ensemble cast last night at the Sags, entire cast in attendance with the exception of Brad,,,no show at the GG…and he was the STAR of that movie!

    Ian right on!! You told us the timeline and now its coming true – You Rock!! xoxoxo

  13. BigApplette said on January 24th, 2010 at 8:45 am

    Congratulations, Ian. Great book. I had to endure a lot of nonsense from loonies on Amazon because of the positive review that I posted there for your book. Bidet is correct; you are going to be VERY BUSY in the upcoming weeks with interviews about the Brand. Another thing you were correct about is when you told Perez Hilton that he needs to be more accurate with his website. He is posting that the split is not happening. Wishful thinking from the Loon King, is my guess.

  14. Tamara said on January 24th, 2010 at 8:52 am

    Ian told Perez that? I must have missed that one! LOL Good one Ian – PH is going to have a major melt down if they split, he so loves Saint Angie – wonder how much she pays him ala Paris Hilton for the good PR

  15. BigApplette said on January 24th, 2010 at 8:56 am

    I thought I read or heard Ian mention that he likes Perez a lot but that there are mistakes in Perez’s blog and he needs to be more accurate. It was either on his webcast or somewhere in this blog. If anyone else remembers, please chime in.

  16. BigApplette said on January 24th, 2010 at 8:56 am

    Great post and oh so true.

  17. mooki said on January 24th, 2010 at 8:59 am


    Angie, oops I mean her “rep” says the “rumors are untrue”. Someone needs to get her head examined….

  18. stinky-inky said on January 24th, 2010 at 9:17 am

    You’re right Kate–that line “that it’s a personal matter” is as good as a confirmation of the story!

  19. keane cyber queen supreme said on January 24th, 2010 at 9:22 am

    Ah so Brad’s people leaked it and hers are denying it then? Not surprised. He’s seen how their press has been going lately and is finally bailing on it. Well done Brad. And most importantly of course, well done Ian!

    Oh and great post Reality Check by the way, ITA.

    @keane cyber queen supreme:

    Thank you, Keane. I have always wanted to ask you something because you are one of the best-informed posters on IUC: Do you think “Just Jared” is also one of the Kosinski/Haven creations, which came to life during Brangelina’s getting–together period? I have no timeline for the appearance of that nasty, falsely neutral, butt-kissing blog which has a lot to be blamed for with respect to the damage on Jennifer Aniston’s name – however, I am under the impression that it appeared during the Pitt/Aniston divorce, which comes to say something.

    I’m just back from Perez Hilton’s website. Gosh, he’s so pathetic – as pathetic as a teenager who won’t believe that his favourite fairytale couple squabbles, toots and goes to the toilet just like the rest of us! If a teenager falls for their lame act, that would be normal and excusable – but a 32-year-old man has no excuse for hanging his sock in the living room in the hope that Santa Claus will drop something in. Now I’m going back to my copy of Ian’s book because it finally arrived – it’s so gripping that I can’t put it down! Glad to be reading a book that came out so accurate!


  22. Vittoria said on January 24th, 2010 at 11:36 am

    Why? What have these people done to you? I don’t think it is very nice to put someone’s number out in the public domain. Who does it benefit? No one.

  23. pickwick said on January 24th, 2010 at 12:08 pm

    Congrats Ian. I always knew you were telling it straight—just like Micheal Jackson.
    I’m really surprised Perez would stick his neck out so far on this when he must know he’s obviously really wrong. This will be like his Castro thing.

  24. Tamara said on January 24th, 2010 at 12:16 pm

    WTF??? Why would you do that? Okay, I’ll leave it up to you to call them and tell them you have just posted their numbers on IUC – sorry Mooki, but this is just dumb

  25. v said on January 24th, 2010 at 12:16 pm

    Well, said and I agree 100%

  26. Keane Cyber Queen Supreme said on January 24th, 2010 at 2:19 pm


    It’s an interesting theory and highly possible I guess. There are certainly a lot of sites out there that you suspect come from their hands (”Soul Jolie” for one – what a ludicrous title!). JJ I’m not so sure. A lot of the content is driven by the attitude of the loons who give him the hits to keep the busines afloat. They have threatened him so many times when he prints anything to their disliking and he often changes posts to keep them happy (the Angelina dropped by St John one for a start). They were on that thread calling him Judas for goodness sake – if I were Jarad I would be terrified! I believe someone from DListed once e-mailed him to give him her support after a similar roasting by the loons and he replied and said thank you. Loons are one scary beast I think. Can’t wait to see how they deal with the split. Well, to be honest I already know: they will deny, deny and deny until it is confirmed by Angelina’s own lips and then they will throw Brad under the bus, take it all out on Jen and focus their energies on hooking Angelina up with Johnny Depp of course. She is their projected selves in their fantasy worlds of course and as such can never lose. If she does, so do they. Hence the vitriol. Fun and games!

  27. RealityCheck said on January 24th, 2010 at 2:44 pm

    @Keane Cyber Queen Supreme:

    It sounds highly plausible to me – thanks a lot. Honestly, the only reason I have wanted to see them split over the last five years was the total beastliness of their fan club – they are not normal. I believe that no ex in Hollywood history has endured so many insults, jibes and humiliations than Jennifer Aniston. I thought: “If they ever split, those beasts will feel humiliated, fall apart and crawl back into their holes, licking their wounds over the revelation that they worshipped the wrong God.” Forget it – they will deny the obvious to avoid admitting wrong and looking ridiculous. This is the first time I have seen a celebrity debate turn into a real war – it’s so strange.

  28. Keane Cyber Queen Supreme said on January 24th, 2010 at 2:54 pm


    Yes I think that was the main reason I got interested in it – a good 2 years ago now I think it was. Well that and the terrible hypocrisy of adopting those children and bringing them back to live a life of obscene luxury in the west when the same amount of money could have helped hundreds of thousands more. And obviously the way she was deified for doing a bit of charity work for eff’s sake while she lived the life of riley. So yes, a few reasons really!

  29. sid said on January 24th, 2010 at 3:05 pm

    Their reps have denied the split rumors so they’re pretty much still together… hold on to those celebrations for a while… it sucks, i know !!!!

  30. Kate said on January 24th, 2010 at 3:12 pm

    samcc I really don’t even know what to say about this. phone numbers can be gotten, and are not all that difficult if someone really wants them, but I am not sure what the purpose of this is. Mooki, next time perhaps you might suggest people PM you through the discussion board to get private information, IAN does not have any blog rules per say, and Tam and I are admins to a blog that uses the same format , so we are well aware of the capabilities of blocking words, links, content that should be viewed first , etc. , and while he may not agree with me, IDK, I am going to politely ask you not to ever do this again.Stars do deserve some privacy for bejeeses sakes. They are stalked badly enough as it is, the reason many text is because their phone calls get tapped. A few years ago someone did this to several and it was a huge inconvenience to the person who had the number (turned out not to be the star) to have it changed because many decided to call it and find out, so I just don’t think you really thought this one through to well. Please do not post personal information of anyone on the blog unless you send it to IAN and he does it, okay? That is just not being considerate to the person who answers that phone on the other end if perhaps the 50 so juvenile boys that read this are interested decide to call it and get someone’s grandma . thannls, kate

  31. emma said on January 24th, 2010 at 3:25 pm

    @sid: Actually the reps have not denied it. People magazine says that their reps have declined to comment. They are claiming unnamed sources which doesn’t mean jack. No official denial from an official rep=no denial.

  32. RealityCheck said on January 24th, 2010 at 3:37 pm


    Sid, honey, I don’t care if their reps denied it – they will split. Their relationship is doomed. I have always known it. You can’t cause so much pain and get something lasting. It’s called “karma” or whatever word you choose.

  33. sid said on January 24th, 2010 at 3:56 pm

    @emma and @ReakityCheck

    I really want to believe this you guys but it seems highly impossible… not because they’re so in love (blekhh) but because they need “Brangelina” to stay together. Where will Brad and Angie be after separation? They bring more money, more publicity by being together…. they know it, their people know it and that’s exactly why they’ll stick around for as long as they can… even if it means faking it !!!

  34. mooki said on January 24th, 2010 at 4:01 pm


    i didn’t post them originally, so don’t go harping on me. there’s a host of sites out there that randomly post the phone #s of celebs.

  35. Keane Cyber Queen Supreme said on January 24th, 2010 at 4:25 pm

    I wonder whether the maid story forced their hand on this one. Think they thought it better to get the news of the split out before any more damaging stories from that so unfortunately credible source? I do.

  36. marty said on January 24th, 2010 at 4:41 pm

    that would be showbizspy instead, OK? I missed the s.

  37. emma said on January 24th, 2010 at 4:45 pm

    @sid: I think that is true for AJ but not Brad. He doesn’t need her and would actually be helped if he cut her loose. It’s she who needs Pitt, not the other way around. He is done. Notice no one has denied the separation agreement and no official rep has issued a written statement that can be quoted word for word. If AJ’s manager isn’t talking, that is very telling indeed. Normally he is all over any story that makes her look bad.

  38. Kate said on January 24th, 2010 at 7:04 pm

    Tams’s comment was in relation to posting them here though , as was mine as well Mooki, so I think in fairness just because someone has posted them elsewhere that does not make it right to continue doing so. I think most boards do not even allow one to post personal phone numbers and names, stars or otherwise, unless these numbers are part of their public professional profile (and they are not, I checked) then of course that would be fine because anyone who has access to industry publications can look them up. Just as a courtesy I think it is something out of fairness to another persons’s privacy that should not be done, a phone number is not as public as one’s address, and the fact that you stated you were not even sure they were correct is even more reason not to spread them around. Please don’t be defensive, just try to see the logical side to this. Those people , if not them, will all have to change their numbers. If it is them, same thing, so not sure what the point of it is.

  39. Kate said on January 24th, 2010 at 7:07 pm

    lol well the NOTW did say the split contract did not have a start date yet, maybe they are arguing over when exactly that is..

  40. cuze said on January 24th, 2010 at 8:21 pm

    Sugar reported last year that the official breakup date was 2/2/10 so perhaps Sugar would like to enlighten us??? But, that might have only been for IUC ears only..not sure..lol

  41. pickwick said on January 24th, 2010 at 11:21 pm

    Some of them even say that Brad looks happy in recent photos. Now that’s what I would call deep denial.

    I remember when some photos surfaced of Mel Gibson on the beach with an attractive brunette who was not his wife. They were holding each other in the surf. It looked very romantic. Some people were saying that she could be his friend and he was just hugging her in a friendly way. That anyone implying otherwise was just mean and negative. No. We were just understanding what we were seeing. That woman in the photos now has his baby and lives with Mel.

    I don’t know who pointed this out—think it might have been Kate, but she made a really good point. Angie has NOT denied the voice coach story. He denied it in a weird way. Said it wasn’t him and whoever it WAS, it was not a voice coach. Not “Of course Jolie hasn’t been sleeping with anyone on rubber sheets. Brad is with her. They’re happy. Doesn’t make sense”. Even his denial was kind of interesting since it seemed to imply there could certainly be someone.

    AND she has said publicly that she doesn’t believe in being faithful in a relationship. AND they don’t go to benefits together lately. INCLUDING a high profile benefit where his ex was assisting. And they STILL say insist it’s a happy, strong relationship. AND the “Don’t touch me” beard. My God, he BRAIDS it. If that beard alone doesn’t scream that these two aren’t intimate, I don’t know what would for the fans.

  42. emma said on January 25th, 2010 at 1:52 am

    @pickwick: Agreed. They haven’t denied anything at all. The break up story was even reported on NPR. It’s everywhere and only the usual butt kissers are trying to deny what’s obvious. They are done. It’s over.

  43. alif said on January 25th, 2010 at 3:38 am

    Yeah, someone stuck a fork in Brangelina, and declared: ‘THEY’RE DONE!”

  44. Keane Cyber Queen Supreme said on January 26th, 2010 at 1:39 pm

    Hmm, I am still wondering about this maid and rubber sheets story, still for me something doesn’t quite add up. The first thing is that she would obviously have broken the terms of her confidentiality contract to do this, leaving her open to being sued for everything she has. The second is the notion that Brad Pitt would be sitting downstairs in a hotel lobby by himself texting people night after night after night, while Angelina was upstairs shagging someone. This sounds utterly ludicrous IMO. There is no way Brad would spend all this time on his own in a hotel lobby while Angelina was upstairs having sex with various people. He would either be at home in their rented mansion with their supposed 6 children or hanging out with one of his mates/ shagging someone else somewhere else. Not hanging out in a hotel lobby by himself texting, no way. For both these reasons I believe this story has to have come from one of them and I think it must be Brad. Angelina’s “infidelity” comment was an attempt to cushion the blow before it fell I think. And she couldn’t stop it because she knew they had far worse on her. Something in the milk ain’t clean with all these stories and I think there is a pretty clear line from Brad and his people through a certain someone to the mainstream media. JMO!
