The National Enquirer had claimed that Brad ‘shamelessly flirted’ with Selena, 28, causing issues between him and Angelina, though the claims were denied.
The same year, The Weeknd released his hit song “Party Monster” that featured a reference to both Angelina and Selena, with the line: ‘Angelina, lips like Angelina / Like Selena, a** shaped like Selena.’
Selena and The Weeknd reportedly broke up in October 2017 after nearly 10 months of dating.

‘I believe Angelina and Brad have already spent over $1million each. They are both employing very reputable attorneys and Angelina has already gone through several.
