“There are a lot of important and life-threatening and world changing things going on lately; sometimes it seems like more than ever. But none of them are as foundation shaking as the news we received about Brad and Angelina today,” Kimmel began. “As I’m sure you’ve heard, Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from Brad Pitt, and of course, all the celebrity gossip magazines are claiming victory. You know, they broke this story. They broke this story every week for the last 11 years over and over and over again — until finally, it came true.”

Kimmel quipped, “Apparently the reason they’re getting divorced is she talked about ‘Fight Club’, and [Pitt] specifically asked her not to do that.”

“Now that this has happened, you wonder what else the tabloids have been right about,” he continued. “Are [Ben Affleck] and [Jennifer Lopez] back together? Was [Kim Kardashian] dumped on her first anniversary? Is Barack Obama gay? I mean, he must be; they wouldn’t put it on the cover if it wasn’t true. Anyway, our thoughts are with Brad and Angelina, and with all of us. It’s always hard when two people you don’t know and have no personal connection to split up.”

“It came out that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are filing for divorce and will end their relationship of 12 years.” Corden explained. “I’m taking this news especially hard because I named my daughter Brangelina. It feels like a mistake now.”

He added, “But this breakup couldn’t come at a worse time. In the face of a Donald Trump presidency, Brad and Angelina’s marriage was the last hope for immigrants to be welcomed into this country.”
