If Internet rumors and tabloid reports are to be believed Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have been broken up since exactly five minutes after they first fell in love on the set of 'Mr. and Mrs. Smith.' Five years down the road the pair are still going strong despite everyone and their mother (even my mother) betting on a split. We always pictured them laughing off the breakup rumors over a couple of neat Manhattans while listening to some Bassekou Kouyate and writing million dollar checks to fashionably humanitarian causes. But apparently Brangelina has finally hit a breaking point, suing British tabloid the News of the World over reports that the couple was splitting and dividing their assets and children.

What caused them to finally say enough is enough and confirm their utter devotion in a legal brief? Our experts weigh in after the jump.
