Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, popularly known as “Brangelina,” galvanized fans when news of Jolie filing for divorce hit the tabloids back in September. The celebrity couple had been together since 2005, although they’ve been married for only two years. The split has been publicly scandalous, with the couple going back and forth with serious allegations against one another. Pitt was investigated and cleared of child abuse by the FBI and the L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services in November after allegations came up in reference to an alleged incident with son Maddox. In December, a judge denied Pitt’s request to seal documents in his custody battle, but the new arrangement came last week after reports of Jolie agreeing to seal the court documents were issued by TMZ. The story of this celebrity divorce will no longer be the gift that keeps on giving.

This former celebrity couple is obviously seeking some privacy. What are some ways to keep your break-up details on the down-low?
