Before they announced their split, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were considered one of the most prominent couples in the industry and everyone admired them. The well-known IT couple, who got together in 2005 after meeting in 2003 while filming Mr. and Mrs. Smith, parted ways in 2016.
The ex-couple, who share six children, were declared legally single by a judge in 2019 and have been negotiating child custody and financial division for some time. However, the Internet was reminded, amid their legal dispute, of Angelina Jolie’s prior worries about an actress-singer about her then-spouse. Now let’s learn more.

Selena Gomez appeared as herself in 2015’s The Big Short, in which Brad Pitt portrayed the character of Ben Rickert; a former trader who helps John Magaro’s Charlie Geller and Finn Wittrock’s Jamie Shipley with their trade. Pitt’s character was based on Ben Hockett.
At the 2016 Golden Globes after-party at the time, the young actress was excited to talk to the actor about their movie but his then-wife Angelina Jolie was concerned about the two of them getting close and flirty. There were reports of the duo flirting and Gomez’s post with Pitt at the time added to the fire. In the picture, Gomez wore a white maxi dress with a thigh-slit as Pitt donned a black tux.

Insiders at the time shared with The National Enquirer via Hollywood Life that the actress was furious with the actor and had asked him to end his professional ties with the singer. The source added,
“Angie blew a gasket when she saw Selena’s Instagram and heard through friends about how Brad and Selena flirted so shamelessly. Now, Selena is bragging to everyone that Brad is gung-ho to make another movie with her.”
It was also reported that the singer called Pitt her future husband, which Jolie did not like at all with adding that this could have been one of the reasons why Jolie had decided to take a step towards separating from the actor at the time. It was however never confirmed if the picture caused any drama between the couple or not but the sources believed that it did.
