THE 37-year-old celebrity blogger Perez Hilton was recently asked to change elements of a story he ran about the ‘Maleficent’ star’s Angelina Jolie split from husband Brad Pitt and her lawyers threatened legal action if he did not comply.
At the time, the star hit back by posting his email response on Instagram, demanding an apology from the 41-year-old star herself. Speaking on Australian radio show ‘The Kyle and Jackie O Show’, Perez has now revealed that he did in fact get an apology, though not directly from the actress.
In tweets posted on Kyle and Jackie O’s Twitter page, Perez said: “I have an update for you! The legal team did not respond but her crisis management expert got back to me and apologised!”
The star sticks by his original coverage of the duo’s split, as he says the ‘By The Sea’ actress’ team wanted a whole new piece written about the event which “apologised” for his original reporting.
