Chris Cornell’s Death Driving Brad Pitt to Drink

There are rumors flying around that Brad Pitt is so distraught over Chris Cornell’s death that he might start drinking heavily again. That’s according to friends of his, who are apparently REALLY worried about him.

“Brad’s taking his loss very hard, like it’s a death in the family,” said the pal. “Now, friends fear that Brad will fall off the wagon — hard!”

Pitt even took Cornell’s kids out after his death. The two were like brothers says the source. They added:

“Brad trusted Chris on every level…It was a friendship that was honest, loyal and sparked by a mutual understanding.  When Brad came to terms with his demons, Chris was right there for him. He helped Brad live a happy, sober life…Some say Chris was his Alcoholics Anonymous sponsor because Chris spoke to him on the phone daily and gave him an AA book.”

Of course, all these “pals” are anonymous. They are probably afraid of losing the gravy train if Pitt finds out who they actually are. If I had the amount of fame that he does, I’d be wary of everyone around me. I treat these stories like a certain president when he says, “People tell me things all the time. Believe me. Believe me.”

Maybe Pitt’s fans are suspicious that this could be a plant by the Angelina Jolie camp. They are divorcing, remember? Jolie’s a woman who used to walk around with a vial of blood around her neck, so it’s not far-fetched that she would be trying to drag Brad’s reputation down. Using Cornell’s death would not be out of the realm of possibility. There’s a saying: “Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.” Well, a batshit crazy woman can raise the heat even more.

Now, there may be some truth here and Pitt might make the bad decision to try to find solace again at the bottom of a bottle of alcohol. He’s human and he’s been hit with two suicides of close friends in a short time span. Hell, I’d be eyeing bottles of wine all the time if I had that happen. People grieve in different ways. As long as he’s not drinking from Jolie’s vials of blood, he’ll ultimately be fine. The world still needs his six-pack of abs.
