JEALOUS ANGIE ENRAGED!
ANGELINA JOLIE flips out in a jealous rage after she learned BRAD PITT was trying to offer a shoulder to a troubled pal - Friends beauty COURTNEY COX!
Sources close to the couple say that super-jealous Angelina angrily accused Brad of contacting Courteney as a cover to rekindle his ties to her best pal - his ex-wife Jennifer Aniston!
Now a suspicious Angelina, 35, is demanding that Brad stop speaking to both Courteney and her estranged husband, David Arquette, both of whom he's known for many years.
"Angie flew into a rage when Brad admitted he called Courteney - and she accused him of using the Arquette split to reach out to Jen," an insider told The ENQUIRER.
"Angie said she wouldn't be surprised if Jen was sitting right next to Courteney when he called!"
The Arquettes were close friends with Brad, 46, and Jennifer during their five-year marriage, and the couples frequently socialized and vacationed together. Jen and Courteney have been close since their Friends days.
"When Brad, 46, heard that Courteney and David had split up, he thought it was only natural to reach out," the source said.
"He called Courteney and told her, 'I've been there. I know the pain you're feeling.' He said all the things you say to an old friend who's going through a breakup.
"But his mistake was bringing it up to Angie."
According to the source, Brad was "astonished" by Angelina's angry reaction, and he patiently tried to reassure her that his phone call to Courteney had nothing to do with Jennifer.
"But Angelina can't bear the thought of Brad having any connection at all with Jen - even if it was just to console her best friend over a marital split," said the source.
"Angelina is convinced that Courteney has been bad-mouthing her for years in an attempt to protect Jen's reputation.
"It's all very high school, but when it comes to her rivalry with Jennifer, there's no getting through to Angie."
