Seizing the moment. Norwegian Airlines released a hilarious ad for cheap fares tied to Brangelina’s split on Thursday, September 22, and the internet is loving it.
“Actor. LA. Newly single. Seeks likeminded partner with GSOH (Good Sense of Humor),” the airline teased with one version of its ad, which advertises a London to Los Angeles flight for around $219.
Another version of the advertisement, which printed in newspapers, simply read: “Brad is single.”
As previously reported, Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from Brad Pitt on Monday, September 19, and in the days following, reports have surfaced that Pitt, 52, is being investigated for child abuse. (The FBI released a statement Thursday noting that the agency is “continuing to gather facts and will evaluate whether an investigation at the federal level will be pursued.” The DCSF told Us that they are “prohibited by law from disclosing case-specific information or even identifying any involvement with any client.”)
The Jolie-Pitt family was flying from Nice, France (near their Chateau Miraval estate), to Burbank, California, on Wednesday, September 14, and stopped to refuel at Minnesota’s Falls International Airport.

TMZ first reported that during the flight, Pitt became “verbally abusive and physical” with the couple’s six children — Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 8.
“He got drunk and was fighting with Angie,” an insider told Us of Pitt’s argument with Jolie, 41. “Maddox stepped in to defend Angie and got in Brad’s face.”
Another source told Us that the fight wasn’t any more than what happens “when you have teens who are strong-willed and confident,” and claimed that “the abuse suggestions are inaccurate.”
Multiple insiders told Us that at least part of the heated exchange was caught on tape and claimed that Pitt can be seen on the video “looking drunk” and “yelling.” One source told Us of the footage, “Brad is seen yelling a lot during it, but nothing physical.”
According to the first source, the Allied actor is taking the investigation very seriously, and wants what’s best for the children.
“Angelina Jolie Pitt has filed for dissolution of the marriage,” Jolie’s rep said in a statement to Us Tuesday, September 20. “This decision was made for the health of the family. She will not be commenting at this time, and asks that the family be given their privacy during this difficult time.”
