"Bunch" of issues
Lance Bass thought he was the proud new owner of the "Brady Bunch" house — then his real estate deal suddenly went bye, bye, bye. Earlier this year, the iconic house from the famed sitcom was put up for sale. The former *NSYNCer felt he just had to have it and said he was assured that his offer of just under $3 million was the winning bid. He even tweeted out that he got the home. However, the next day, Lance revealed that his realtor called to say there was an "unforeseen circumstance" and that another buyer came in and made a higher offer after the deadline. Lance was initially pretty peeved, but after finding out that HGTV was the buyer, he was less upset. "HGTV??! Aw man. I'd be pretty upset if it were anyone else, but how can you be mad at HGTV??" he tweeted on Aug. 7. "My television is stuck on that channel. Kudos HGTV, I know you will do the right thing with the house. That was always my biggest worry. I can smile again." TMZ later reported that the network will soon meet with Lance about possibly getting him involved in the home's renovation.
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's divorce is getting messy. Really messy. On Aug. 7, Angelina claimed that Brad was basically a deadbeat dad and had not paid any "meaningful" child support for their six kids since their 2016 split nor had he paid the kids' expenses per the terms of their informal agreement. She wants "retroactive child support" from her ex, court documents reveal. Additionally, Angie asked the judge to finalize their divorce immediately. Brad's lawyer quickly blasted the actress' claims and called the filing "unnecessary" and "a thinly veiled effort to manipulate media coverage." Brad "previously loaned [Angelina] $8 million to assist her in purchasing her current residence and has paid $1.3 million in bills for the benefit of [Jolie] and the minor children," his lawyer said in court docs. Brad's lawyer also revealed that they approached Angie's team earlier in the month to let them know Brad wanted a bifurcated divorce — when a judge legally dissolves a marriage before issues such as custody and financial settlements are finalized — and were asked to hold off. Then Angie's legal team filed its own motion "to create the impression that she, not [Brad], wanted to bifurcate," Team Brad claimed.
