Exes are splashed all across the tabs this week. Clandestine coffees, missed meetings, two-timing text messages! It seems erstwhile Hollywood couples can’t seem stay away from each other this week. And their new loves are passive-aggressively pissed off—even if they’re not!
While all the other weeklies—Life & Style with special flair—have stories about how former marrieds Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston used advanced technology from NASA to avoid bumping into each other at the Toronto Film Festival this week, Star magazine goes with the splashy “My Dinner with Brad” headline (is it us or does that sound like a letter to Penthouse Forum?). The cover teases of all the exclusive details—Jen’s dress, Brad’s guilty conscience, Angelina’s angry texts—and the four-page spread opens with a giant photo of a Jen getting out of the car, presumably to meet her former flame. The story talks about the anticipation of the couples’ rendezvous, how Jen was quietly masterminding the whole thing. You actually have to turn the page to learn that the meeting didn’t happen.
