In the years since Brangelina reverted back to being just Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie following their messier-than-most split, both stars are now seemingly back on track.
Brad Pitt Talks Quitting Drinking, AA Meetings After Pain Of Angelina Jolie Split
For Brad, who faced allegations of physical abuse and excessive drinking during the prolonged custody battle over the couple’s six children, getting sober was a major turning point.
Speaking with The New York Times in a revealing profile published on Wednesday, the Once Upon A Time In Hollywood actor revealed he has stopped drinking altogether, and sought the support of Alcoholics Anonymous group meetings to process the fallout from his highly-publicised divorce. 
“I had taken things as far as I could take it, so I removed my drinking privileges,” he told the outlet, adding that he attended AA meetings for a year and a half. “You had all these men sitting around being open and honest in a way I have never heard,” Brad continued. “It was this safe space where there was little judgment, and therefore little judgment of yourself.”
Brad shared few specifics of his split with his ex-wife, revealing only that he had “family stuff going on”. But he did remark on the power of being emotionally vulnerable, noting it’s “really freeing just to expose the ugly sides of yourself”.
“The fact is, we all carry pain, grief and loss,” he said. “We spend most of our time hiding it, but it’s there, it’s in you. So you open up those boxes.”
Brad previously described his 2016 split from Jolie as a “huge generator for change” in his own life that allowed him to take a hard look at his bad habits. 
“I can’t remember a day since I got out of college when I wasn’t boozing or had a spliff, or something. Something. And you realise that a lot of it is, um — cigarettes, you know, pacifiers. And I’m running from feelings,” he told GQ in May 2017. “I’m really, really happy to be done with all of that. I mean, I stopped everything except boozing when I started my family.
“But even this last year, you know — things I wasn’t dealing with. I was boozing too much. It’s just become a problem. And I’m really happy it’s been half a year now, which is bittersweet, but I’ve got my feelings in my fingertips again.”Brad Pitt has had 2 big performances this year in “Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood” and now “Ad Astra.” He opens up about sobriety and his Alcoholics Anonymous recovery group. https://t.co/ubnlau4Zr9— The New York Times (@nytimes) September 4, 2019In the NYT profile, Brad described how the attention he received as his career was taking off in the 1990s “really threw” him and made him even more dependent on drugs and alcohol.
“It was really uncomfortable for me, the cacophony of expectations and judgments,” he said. “I really became a bit of a hermit and just bonged myself into oblivion.”
Life certainly seems a bit smoother for Brad these days.
He reached a custody agreement with Angelina in late 2018 that awarded joint custody of the children, and he’s gaining Oscar buzz for his performance in two of 2019′s biggest movies, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood and the upcoming Ad Astra.   If you need help with a drinking problem, call the Alcoholics Anonymous national helpline for free on 0800 9177 650 or email help@aamail.org.For advice on how to reduce drinking, visit Drinkaware’s website or Alcohol Change UK.Find alcohol addiction services near you using this NHS tool.READ MORE... Tarantino’s Secrets, Brad’s Pits And Leo’s Flames: Tales From Once Upon A Time In Hollywood Angelina Jolie Blasts 'Deplorable' And 'Misleading' Leak Of Custody Documents So, Your Obsession With Jennifer Aniston And Brad Pitt Is Back? Let Experts Explain Why. Calvin Harris And Taylor Swift Calvin Harris made headlines the world over when he called out his ex on Twitter, accusing her of trying to 'tear him down' and suggesting she has a tendency to 'bury' anyone she disagrees with, including her pop rival Katy Perry. Raymond Hall via Getty ImagesCalvin Harris And Rita Ora Taylor isn't the only one of Calvin's exes he's got beef with, though. Rita Ora revealed shortly after their split that the DJ had forbidden her from performing their collaboration 'I Will Never Let You Down' at an awards ceremony in the US.He later insisted he had a 'damn good reason' for putting the brakes on her scheduled performance. David M. Benett via Getty ImagesStephanie Davis and Jeremy McConnell It was drama from the beginning with these two, who met in the 'Celebrity Big Brother' house in January 2016, when Stephanie was still dating model Sam Reece.Although they tried to make a go of it in the outside world, it wasn't long before infidelity accusations were thrown from both sides, with Stephanie eventually announcing she was pregnant with Jeremy's child. Jeff Spicer via Getty ImagesBritney Spears and Justin Timberlake They were truly love's young dream in the early 2000s, but things quickly turned sour and they broke hearts all over the world when they announced they'd split.He later addressed the break-up in his track 'Cry Me A River', and has repeatedly made digs at her over the past decade. CHRIS PIZZELLO/APKanye West and Amber Rose Kanye and Amber split in 2010, but it was years later that he took a swipe at her in the press, suggesting new wife Kim Kardashian had made him take "30 showers" before they got together, because of their relationship.Amber then caused ripples on social media with #FingersInTheBooty-gate, with Kanye later using Amber as one of 12 celebs in his shocking 'Famous' music video. Michel Dufour via Getty ImagesBinky Felstead and Alex Mytton It was one of the most outrageous 'Made In Chelsea' moments ever when one of our fave couples went their separate ways, after it was claimed Alex had been unfaithful.While he initially owned up to one indiscretion, it later transpired that an entire orgy had taken place without his girlfriend's knowledge, and their relationship swiftly ended. Ben A. Pruchnie via Getty ImagesRita Ora and Rob Kardashian Rob was furious with Rita when they broke up, posting a string of crude tweets about her, including one where he accused her of 'cheating on him with 20 dudes'. CopettiPhotofabREXShutterstockKelly Brook and David McIntosh We're seeing a bit of a pattern here, but it was only long after their 'amicable' split that things appeared to turn sour for David McIntosh and Kelly Brook.Shortly after their break-up, they were both victims of a mass celebrity nude photo hacking, with Kelly publicly tweeting David to tell him: 'Your nob's online. Email me.' JB Lacroix via Getty ImagesJustin Bieber and Selena Gomez They haven't been together for years, but it seems these two still have a lot of unfinished business. Most recently, Selena tweeted Justin to tell him he was being unfair to his Beliebers by blaming them for laying into his new girlfriend, something she knows a whole lot about. C Flanigan via Getty ImagesBig Sean and Naya Rivera Things turned really sour between Naya Rivera and Big Sean once they'd ended their relationship, with the 'Glee' actress accusing her ex of stealing her Rolex, something he has vehemently denied since. Jason LaVeris via Getty ImagesChantelle Houghton and Alex Reid Chantelle publicly blasted Alex in 2012 once they'd called time on their relationship, accusing him of turning their home into a 'sex dungeon' when she was eight months pregnant.He later issued a public statement in a video, urging Chantelle to allow him to see their baby daughter, Dolly. Doug Peters/Doug PetersKelly Osbourne and Luke Worrall Kelly has never been one for holding back on social media (just ask Dannii Minogue, or her father's former mistress), and this was never more true than when she split with Luke Worrall.After discovering he'd slept with a model behind her back, Kelly blasted her then-fiancé on social media, calling him the 'biggest piece of shit ever' also accusing him of sleeping with 'hundreds of girls as well as men behind her back'. Gregg DeGuire via Getty ImagesLauren Goodger and Mark Wright The British reality TV romance that had everyone talking finally came to an end in 2012, after the two had been together for 11 years (which The Goodge was in no rush to let anyone forget).Since marrying Michelle Keegan, Mark has repeatedly blasted his ex, urging her to stop mentioning him in interviews and to 'have some self-respect'. Mark Cuthbert via Getty ImagesRobert Pattison and Kristen Stewart Twihards were stunned when it emerged that K-Stew (*sigh*) had slept with 'Snow White and the Huntsman' director Rupert Sanders behind R-Patz's (again, *sigh*) back.The two attempted to get their relationship back on track, but allegedly split when he learned she was still in contact with Rupert.

Rudy Giuliani screams at Piers Morgan in insane TV interview: 'What happened to you, Rudy?'
Jun 04, 2020
Rudy Giuliani just made an appearance on Good Morning Britain with Piers Morgan, and to say it went off the rails would be an understatement. President Trump's personal lawyer participated in what turned out to be a completely bonkers interview on the show on Thursday, which started somewhat normally only to get heated as Morgan grilled Giuliani on Trump tweeting that "when the looting starts, the shooting starts." Giuliani claimed Trump didn't quote a "nutty, horrible racist" on "purpose," but Morgan wasn't buying it, repeatedly calling Giuliani out and asking him why Trump is using "inflammatory language" on Twitter. After many minutes going back and forth on this, the interview finally went fully out of control as Giuliani screamed over Morgan's news coverage and the two traded insults, with Giuliani blasting Morgan as a "liar" and a "failed journalist" after Morgan asked him, "What happened to you, Rudy?" Morgan proceeded to label Giuliani "deranged," "unhinged," and "completely barking mad." As if the whole thing wasn't chaotic enough, they then spent the end of the interview litigating whether Giuliani dropped an F-bomb during the conversation; Giuliani claimed he didn't say live on the air that Morgan "f--ed up," but considering a bleep was added to the Twitter clip posted by Good Morning Britain, the network obviously wasn't convinced. Watch just a small piece of the wild journey below, with more on YouTube.
