Clearly, Chelsea Handler is Team Brad in the death of Brangelina.
Handler is using her Netflix show “Chelsea” as a platform to tear into Jolie, calling her a “fucking lunatic” in a preview clip for the talk show.
She also suggested that life with Jolie, who filed for divorce from Pitt this week, and their kids might have driven Pitt to “self-medicate.”
“There are rumors that part of the problem was that Brad was allegedly drinking and smoking too much weed,” Handler said in the preview.
“I wonder why he needed to self-medicate,” Handler continued. “Maybe because he could have been spending the last 12 years at Lake Como hanging out with George Clooney and Matt Damon instead of being stuck in a house with 85 kids speaking 15 different languages,” the comedienne went on, referring to the former super-couple’s children, some of whom are adopted.
“He married a fucking lunatic, that’s why,” Handler continued.
The host, a longtime friend of Pitt’s ex-wife Jennifer Aniston, added that she would refrain from discussing the Jolie-Pitt split in the future. On her show, anyway.
“But we should all respect their privacy during this very difficult time,” Handler continued. “So this will be the last time I speak of this. On TV. You can follow me on Twitter.”
