This year has brought many celebrity scandals that have captivated audiences, especially in Hollywood. From the divorce and an assault, below is a list of Top 4 American celebrities scandals who made headlines in 2023.
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt
Brad Pitt was a renowned American actor who started out with insignificant roles in Hollywood movies. After minor acting stints in movies like 21 Jump Street, Cutting Class, and Happy Together, he got his big break in Legends of the Fall. His major hits have been movies like Fight Club, Ocean's film series, Troy, Mr. & Mrs. Smith, The Departed, Babel, and World War Z. In a relationship, he started dating actress Angelina Jolie in 2004. They were popularly known as Brangelina and got married in 2014. However, after staying together for 12 years, in September Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from Brad Pitt and announced their separation. Now, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie find themselves embroiled in another bitter battle, seven years after their tumultuous divorce. This time, it was a legal war over control of their $164 million Château Miraval winery in France. Described as a high-brow, fancy, A-list absolute disaster by Becker, the ex-spouses are at odds because Brad Pitt claims Angelina Jolie sold company shares without informing him, violating their divorce agreement. While their dispute has made headlines, they seem poised to resolve it through mediation, potentially ending the media frenzy.

Their legal battle encompasses custody disputes, financial conflicts, debates over possessions large and small, and even requests for Christine to vacate their $145 million beachside California estate. As the drama unfolds, Christine has relocated from the main house to a smaller staff residence on their sprawling property.
