Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s statues split in Madame Tussauds wax museums. Post-divorce has so much more ahead!

If there separation isn’t burning our hearts enough, now their wax statues at Madame Tussauds museums are now featured at a respectful distance from each other.
Jolie’s figure has been placed near one of Nicole Kidman, really smart guys! While, Brad Pitt’s is hanging out with the figure of his co-star in Seven, Morgan Freeman.

Not only wax statues there are so much more things couple has to clear out.
According to foreign media, the divorce of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt means that between the two stars, there’s an estimated $500 million at stake.

This includes their Chateau Miraval vineyard in Correns, France, which they bought for $60 million.
Also there is a concern about what will happen to Jolie-Pitt Foundation, which the couple founded in 2006. A tax document filed in November showed the foundation had about $4.5 million in assets in 2014. Jolie and Pitt contributed $613,000 to the foundation that year, and the foundation paid out a variety of grants, including for wildlife conservation in Namibia, arts programs in Sarajevo, and a variety of projects in Cambodia.

The good part is that ‘Brangelina’ don’t have any joint upcoming Hollywood projects. But both have a number of films coming out soon that will surely receive more attention in the wake of their breakup. Pitt stars in the World War II romantic thriller “Allied,” which is out in November, and Jolie directed her fourth film, “First They Killed My Father,” which is set to be released by Netflix next year.

The couple first got together 11 years ago and tied the knot in August 2014. They first sparked their romance on the set of “Mr. and Mrs. Smith,” in which they played a stalled married couple unaware that they were both secret agents.

BJP MLA Kavita Jain tries to befool by posting photo with Elizabeth; gets trolled on internet!

You must have seen a lot of your friends flaunting their photographs with celebrities, on all of the social media site. But when a politician does this, they take it to a totally new level! A bigger level, at a better place with greater celebrities! But wait, is this celebrity even real?

BJP MLA Kavita Jain when went on a visit to London, did something which made her a victim of so many trolls on internet! The lady took the ‘flaunting-game’ to another level when she posted a photograph with Queen Elizabeth.

But wait! That doesn’t looks even somewhere close to the Queen. Mrs. Jain tried to convince her audience that she was so close to our Kohinoor, but we are not that foolish ma’am! It can be easily identified that it was just a wax statue of Queen Elizabeth at madam Tussad’s museum. However, Kavita later deleted the tweet after getting trolled on internet.
