Fact: Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from Brad Pitt because, as rumor has it, Brad may have gotten too aggressive with one of their children.
Another fact: Amber Heard filed for divorce from Johnny Depp earlier this year, making some pretty serious, pretty damning allegations that he abused her.
So hey, wouldn't it be a great idea to intertwine these two stories, to create one great big piece of celebrity gossip, complete with love, violence, heartache, and god knows what else?
Yeah, this is going to work out beautifully, says no one with the tiniest bit of sense.
According to a new report from The Sun, Angelina and Johnny made friends when they costarred in "The Tourist" in 2010, but now that friendship may be turning into something more.
"Angelina idolized Johnny for years before she worked with him on 'The Tourist,'" a source claims, "and then the pair of them really hit it off on set."
If you'll remember, there were rumors of some little affair back then, because of course there were, but "with both Brad and Johnny's then wife Vanessa Paradis on set, nothing was going to happen."
Funnily enough, when Johnny and Vanessa split in 2012, some tabloid reports speculated that Angelina played a role in the destruction of their relationship.
"Vanessa was against Johnny working with Angelina in the first place," an old report from The National Enquirer alleged. "She firmly believed that Angelina stole Brad Pitt away from Jennifer Aniston and felt she'd do the same with Johnny."
It got so bad, apparently, that Vanessa become absolutely convinced" that "Johnny slept with Angelina," and "her jealousy and suspicions ended up destroying [their relationship]."
Curiouser and curiouser, right?
But as for Johnny and Angelina, "the two of them have stayed in touch," a source claims, "and spoke regularly during the storm that surrounded Johnny's breakup with Amber."
But now, Angelina is turning to him in her own time of need.
Angelina even hired the same lawyer that represented Johnny in his divorce "based on the advice that he has given her," so that's sweet.
And apparently, some people think that this little bit of divorcee camaraderie will lead to something more.
"Her friends are now speculating about what could happen between them if she and Brad are not reconciled and their divorce goes through," that's how the source puts it.
So yes, if this is true, this is the worst idea that anyone's ever had.
There are still several people that don't believe Amber Heard's claims of domestic violence, but remember that leaked video that showed Johnny going off on her after a whole hell of a lot of wine?
If Brad's outburst on that plane was enough to make Angelina end their relationship, why would she even consider starting something with Johnny?
And if Johnny got burned by Amber -- which, come on, you know that whole scandal couldn't have been fun -- why would he even consider jumping into such a high-profile relationship so soon?
Look, we all know that celebrities do some dumb stuff sometimes, but this would really just be entirely too much.
Just get it together, everyone. Is that really such a difficult thing to do?
