According to Jann Wenner’s upcoming memoir, Like a Rolling Stone, Hollywood star Angelina Jolie reportedly gave crucial information on where she was staying with Pitt and son Maddox, which led to one of the couple’s most famous photos.
Wenner’s memoir is filled with stories about celebrities he’s met over the years, but Jolie’s exposure put an end to a 17-year mystery about who first mentioned ‘Brangelina,’ the code name for Brad and Angelina.
Wenner’s memoir claims that Jolie provided the tip for the 2005 photograph of her with Pitt and her son, Maddox, on the beaches of Kenya.

Wenner was the owner of Us Weekly at the time, and one of his photographers got word from the actress about where they were staying and when they were going to walk along the beach. It was the first confirmation the world received that Brad and Angelina were a real thing.
Pitt had recently divorced Aniston, and he and Jolie had kept a low profile until the photos surfaced.
Despite their representatives’ denials at the time, a witness at the resort told Us Weekly, “They wrapped their arms around each other [at the pool] and shared a long, passionate kiss.”
“Maddox would hang out with Brad and would follow him wherever he went,” they continued. “It was clear that Brad and Maddox are very close.”
“We got the photo, we got the proof,” Wenner said in the book. We had the world’s first look at Brangelina. The tipster was Angelina.”
