An essay titled ‘ A Secret of Love’ became the centre of attention when it was circulated over the social network in the recent years under the name of Brad Pitt. The essay is written from a perspective of a man on his wife, who has been suffering from some kind illness and the husband explaining how he stood by her through the turmoil.
“My wife got sick. She was constantly nervous because of problems at work, personal life, her failures and problems with children,” the essay, allegedly written by Pitt read. “She has lost 30 pounds and weighed about 90 pounds in her 35 years. She got very skinny, and was constantly crying. She was not a happy woman. She had suffered from continuing headaches, heart pain and jammed nerves in her back and ribs. She did not sleep well, falling asleep only in the morning and got tired very quickly during the day. Our relationship was on the verge of break up.”
The essay also noted that her beauty was slowly abandoning her and she developed under eye bags, keeping her away from acting in films.
“I lost hope and thought that we’ll get divorced soon … But then I decided to act on it. After all I’ve got the most beautiful woman on the earth. She is the ideal of more than half of men and women on earth, and I was the one allowed to fall asleep next to her and to hug her shoulders. I began to pepper her with flowers, kisses and complements,” it read.
It added, “I surprised her and pleased every minute. I gave her lots of gifts and lived just for her. I spoke in public only about her. I incorporated all themes in her direction. I praised her in front of her own and our mutual friends. You won’t believe, but she has blossomed. She became even better than before. She gained weight, was no longer nervous and she loved me even more than ever. I had no clue that she CAN love that much. And then I realized one thing: The woman is the reflection of her man”
The write up ended with Pitt’s name in the end. According to a report by the Snopes, Pitt has only gotten married in 2014 and the piece first surfaced in 2013. He divorced from his first wife Jennifer Aniston in 2005 and started dating Angelina Jolie shortly after. By the time Pitt married Jolie, the letter was already circulating over the internet. Jolie also did not suffer from the conditions mentioned in the essay.
A rep of Brad Pitt confirmed that the actor has nothing to do with it and his name has been falsely attributed to the letter. Jolie has filed for divorce from Pitt citing irreconcilable differences, the CNN reported.
