If this is true, it is absolutely crazy!
Over the weekend, it was revealed that biographer Ian Halperin is penning an in-depth book about Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, and the dissolution of their relationship.
According to Halperin, the former powerhouse couple became estranged over Miz Jolie's desire to permanently relocate herself and the children to London and emulate Princess Diana's career. Umm… WHAT???

Reportedly, six days before the family's alleged private plane spat, the humanitarian informed the Fight Club actor about her relocation plans and suggested they explore an open marriage so Pitt could stay in El Lay to focus on his film career. This idea apparently didn't go over well with Jennifer Aniston's ex, leading to the duo's explosive fight — which supposedly resulted in the 52-year-old locking himself in his room over Jolie's scary temper!
According to Ian's sources, Angie has studied Prince William's mother's life in detail and hopes to snag a seat in the House of Lords, just like her friend Baroness Arminka Helic. In fact, it's rumored the Oscar winner is even willing to give up her American citizenship to lock in a position in parliament! Huh.
One source dished to Ian:
"Angelina has become convinced that she can become something like a cross between Princess Diana and Mother Teresa She has studied Diana's life in minute detail and thinks she can carry on her work. She is also prepared to give up her American citizenship to become a member of the House of Lords, which she thinks she can use as a platform to push her project forward…"
The source continued:
"She has always got what she wants and always moves onwards and upwards, just as she did from [former husbands] Johnny Lee Miller to Billy Bob Thornton to Brad Pitt. Now she thinks she's outgrown even him. I think she wants to emulate Grace Kelly by moving seamlessly from Hollywood to European royalty. Her goal now is definitely to hook up with a high-profile politician or a Royal. She thinks she fits Prince Andrew's profile and I believe he is on her radar."
While we think this biographer may be stretching the drama out a bit, it would explain why the mother-of-six has reportedly blocked her estranged husband's phone number. An insider relayed:
"Angelina has blocked all incoming text messages and also Brad's numbers."
Halperin speculates the recent smear campaign against the Hollywood hunk's parenting skills is one of the 41-year-old's strategies to guarantee full custody of their kiddos.

A different confidant shared with the author:
"Brad is a pacifist. He always shied away from confrontations with Angelina and is a devoted father. He is the one who plays with the children, not her."
Hmm, very inneresting. Nonetheless, it appears as though the Fury star has no plans to go after his ex in the media as the source concluded:
"He has always said he wants to take the moral high ground. Whenever they have had 'sell the house' arguments before, he has always pressed for them to go into mediation, divide their assets amicably, and agree to share the custody of the children before announcing to the world that they had gone their separate ways.
That's why Brad feels so bereft and betrayed now. He can't believe she is trying to trash his name and reputation because he has always said, despite the advice of his lawyer, that he would never bad-mouth the mother of his children."
Oof. While many people may be shocked to learn of Brangelina's demise, it's believed by a few that the duo's relationship had fizzled out sometime ago. Ian even suggests the Jolie-Pitts had been sleeping in separate wings of their mansion for a while.
Man, oh man… at this rate, we may not ever learn what really went down between the A-listers.
