Though their reps continue to deny the story, details continue to emerge on the alleged separation of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.

“It’s no secret they have been in a pretty loveless relationship for about a year,” a source tells the Sun. “They barely spend time together, and when they do it is very fraught. They want different things from life.”

The source claims that it was Pitt’s brother Doug who convinced him to pull the plug on the relationship after a particularly chilly holiday season. This past weekend, Pitt was in Los Angeles helping George Clooney with his Haiti telethon, while Jolie stayed in New York for a photo shoot. On Sunday, the News of the World newspaper claimed Brad, 46, and 34-year-old Angelina had visited divorce lawyers to help them separate and planned to split up in the near future.

The legal document they allegedly signed will see their $330 million US fortune halved in two.
