Selena Gomez has apparently gotten roped into Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s divorce thanks to an old photo of her and the Oscar-nominated actor.
The photo in question was posted on Instagram in January by the former “Disney Channel” star and looks innocent enough — the two are sitting on the couch talking about their movie “The Big Short” at a Golden Globes after-party.
However, a report by the National Enquirer said that Jolie became enraged when she saw the pop singer’s post.
“Angie blew a gasket when she saw Selena’s Instagram, and heard through friends about how Brad and Selena flirted so shamelessly,” a source said.
Gomez, 24, is not the only one that has been mentioned to be involved in the demise of “Brangelina,” which was publicly announced on Tuesday.
Oscar winner Marion Cotillard was rumored to have a romantic involvement with Pitt.
She took to Instagram on Wednesday to shoot down the rumors and announce she is pregnant with her second child with longtime boyfriend Guillaume Canet.
This is going to be my first and only reaction to the whirlwind news that broke 24 hours ago and that I was swept up into. I am not used to commenting on things like this nor taking them seriously but as this situation is spiraling and affecting people I love, I have to speak up. Firstly, many years ago, I met the man of my life, father of our son and of the baby we are expecting. He is my love, my best friend, the only one that I need. Secondly to those who have indicated that I am devastated, I am very well thank you. This crafted conversation isn't distressing. And to all the media and the haters who are quick to pass judgment, I sincerely wish you a swift recovery. Finally, I do very much wish that Angelina and Brad, both whom I deeply respect, will find peace in this very tumultuous moment. With all my love Marion Ceci sera la première et seule réaction que j'aurai concernant la déferlante inouïe qui à commencé il y a de ça 24 heures et à laquelle je suis mêlée malgré moi. Je n'ai pas pour habitude de commenter ni de prendre au sérieux le tas d'absurdités déversées à mon sujet mais la situation prenant une telle tournure et affectant des gens que j'aime, je me dois de m'exprimer. Pour commencer, j'ai rencontré il y a quelques années l'homme de ma vie , le père de notre fils et du bébé que nous attendons aujourd'hui. Il est mon amour, mon meilleur ami et le seul homme dont j'ai besoin. Ensuite, à ceux qui me prétendent dévastée, je vais très bien merci. Ce genre d'inventions aberrantes ne m'affecte en aucun cas. Et pour finir, à la "presse", à tous les haters, trolls et consorts qui ont le jugement si rapide je vous souhaite sincèrement... un prompt rétablissement. Ceci dit et un peu plus sérieusement, je souhaite à Angelina et Brad, deux personnes pour qui j'ai un profond respect, de trouver la paix dans ce moment tumultueux. Avec tout mon amour. Marion

Jolie, 41, filed for divorce from Pitt on Monday in Los Angles citing, "irreconcilable differences." She is seeking physical custody of their six children, with visitation rights for Pitt.
An attorney for Jolie, Robert Offer, said Tuesday that her decision to divorce was made "for the health of the family." The filing dated the couple's separation to last Thursday.
"I am very saddened by this, but what matters most now is the wellbeing of our kids. I kindly ask the press to give them the space they deserve during this challenging time," Pitt said in a statement to People.
Though together for 12 years, Pitt and Jolie only wed in August 2014. They married privately at their French chateau in the Provence hamlet of Correns with their children serving as ring bearers and throwing flower petals. They announced the ceremony days later.
Their children are 15-year-old Maddox, 12-year-old Pax, 11-year-old Zahara, 10-year-old Shiloh, and 8-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.
This is the second marriage for Pitt, 52, who previously wed Jennifer Aniston. It's the third for Jolie Pitt, who was previously married to Billy Bob Thornton and Jonny Lee Miller.
