LOS ANGELES, Ca. – Actor Brad Pitt was spotted at a Whole Foods Market in Beverly Hills this weekend buying a carton of skim milk, a move that has stirred lingering questions about his health and well-being. “Brad only drinks two per cent,” said Tyler Stimpson, a TMZ photographer assigned to the Beverly Hills Whole Foods. “He eats a cup of granola with a splash of two per cent milk every morning while he drinks his coffee and does his Sudoko.”
The troubling change in diet comes less than a week after Pitt’s wife, actress and producer Angelina Jolie, “blindsided” him with divorce papers. The forty-one year-old Jolie has reportedly gone so far as to block all incoming text messages and phone calls from Pitt. “The question on everyone’s mind right now is whether these new developments are directly related to Brad’s bizarre decision to stop drinking two per cent milk,” said E! Online’s Avery Donahue.
One theory, according to a source close to the Jolie-Pitt family, is that Brad may have accidentally grabbed the wrong kind of milk. “He has a lot on his mid right now,” the source told Us Weekly. “He’s fighting for joint custody of his children; he doesn’t have time to worry about the type of milk he’s drinking.”
However, Eric Harris, a bagger who works at the Whole Foods where Pitt buys his groceries, says he believes the actor was buying milk for someone else. “Mr. Pitt never buys Organic Valley but this time he did,” Harris, who has bagged groceries for Pitt since 2004, told Real News Right Now. As to who the Fight Club star may have been buying the skim milk for remains a mystery.
On Monday, September 19, Jolie filed for divorce from her estranged husband, Brad Pitt, citing irreconcilable differences. The celebrity duo were married in August of 2014 after being together for nearly nine years.
UPDATE 1:04 p.m.
A source at the Beverly Hills Whole Foods has confirmed to TMZ that Brad Pitt was spotted at the upscale grocery store early Monday morning attempting to return the carton of skim milk. Pitt – who had allegedly misplaced his receipt – spoke briefly with a cashier and store manager before receiving store credit for the return, according to the source who witnessed the exchange from a neighboring cash register.
