Rumor: Angelina Jolie To Adopt From Syria

Angelina Jolie is dominating tabloid covers this week, with US and Star bringing up the old Jennifer Aniston drama, Life & Style proclaiming her a "total fake" and OK! revealing that she's getting set to adopt her 7th child.

It's the adoption rumors that seem to be getting the most attention as the Tomb Raider star has reportedly already started the process to adopt a child from Syria. Angie and her partner Brad Pitt took a trip to the country just last month, visiting with refugee families and children in the region.

Angelina has made no secret of the fact that she plans to expand her family, but although Brad has also seemed on board with the idea of more kids, OK! reports that he's not ready to bring home another baby just yet.

“He has made it clear that six children are more than he can handle,” the magazine quotes a source as saying. “The idea of one more seemed ludicrous, but Angie is determined to complete her rainbow family.”

Brad and Angelina are already parents to kids Maddox, 8, Pax, 5 1/2, Zahara, 4 1/2, Shiloh, 3 1/2, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 1.

 

Angelina Jolie files papers to adopt Syrian child without Brad Pitt

The way we see it, Brad Pitt is left with only two options (because mutilating your nut sacks to avoid having your sperms used in a United Colors of Benetton campaign is not working anymore thanks to all the strays out there): 1) start using pot on a daily basis for medicinal purposes…that purpose being turning the rugrats into really funny dwarf third world slaves who are there to shine his shoes and fan him with banana leaves and 2) just accept it and embrace the fact that another nanny will have to be hired to mind the 7th one.

So according to OK! Magazine, Angelina Jolie has just announced her plans to adopt a Syrian girl as the sole parent:

Though Angie, 34, has made no secret of her desire to “have more kids — one way or another,” an insider tells OK! that her single-minded mission has caused a major rift with Brad. “He has made it clear that six children are more than he can handle,” the source says. “The idea of one more seemed ludicrous, but Angie is determined to complete her rainbow family.”

 However, Arab television network al-Arabiyya tells that Jolie has already filed the papers to adopt the child without husband Brad Pitt:

A spokesman for the Immigration and Naturalization Service in Washington D.C. confirmed that “only Angelina’s name was on the adoption papers.”

Jolie visited Syria with Pitt in September in her capacity as a UN goodwill ambassador. During the journey, she visited with Iraqi war refugees in Syria and met with Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad to, as they say, “discuss the Iraqi refugee crisis.”
