As for why Brad and Angelina have not provided any first-person insights on the allegations that the divorce proceedings are on hold or even possibly called off, Stacy pointed out that the heated media spotlight and opinions from social media make it even more challenging. The world also tends to forget, added the attorney, that Pitt and Jolie are individuals with “real” emotions.
‘These Are Real People With Real Feelings, Not Barbie & Ken Dolls’
Phillips also noted that in the case of Brad and Angelina, the media has been particularly “voyeuristic.” The attorney said that the voyeurism makes it much more “difficult” for Jolie and Pitt to examine their issues and continue their lives and the lives of their children.
Consequently, with regard to the silence that Brad and Angelina have maintained in the wake of the new headlines, Stacy said that the couple has been wise to avoid airing any changes in their relationship in the court of public opinion and media headlines.
