    Default Brad Pitt "marries" Angelina Jolie in an ancient Namibian ceremony

    By Cathy Beers

    Brad Pitt may not have gotten the traditional and legal ceremony that he desperately desired but a published report claims that he did get Angelina Jolie to an altar of sorts. According to Life & Style Weekly the pair were part of a traditional Himba wedding ceremony.

    And in an obvious dis at Jennifer Aniston the Angie source then makes this claim, “It meant much more to her than your typical Malibu wedding would. He’s happy, too.”

    “She promised she’d marry him before the baby came, so she did,” an insider close to Angelina tells the weekly. “Now no matter what happens, Brad can always say he was married to Angie.”

    The report from the magazine cites an insider "close to Angie" that claims Brad and Angie took part in a traditional Himba wedding ceremony.

    What the heck’s a Himba, you ask?

    L&S reports its an ancient tribe of Namibian nomads, whose weddings are often performed by tribal chieftains or without a leader at all. The bride wears an ekori, a headdress made of leather or goatskin, and jewelry made of iron and shells. Later, the groom’s family anoints her with but­terfat from a cow.

    Yuck! Snark alert - L&S says to watch out: Himba men practice polygamy.

    Cue the rep: Brad’s rep denies they got married.

    And the report admits from a legal standpoint, the wedding — like any religious ceremony - wouldn’t make them husband and wife: “They’ll marry again later in the U.S.,” says the insider.

    I think Angelina was sick of his nagging about marriage and did this just to shut him up.

    I think it is nice... nothing like being anointed with but­terfat from a cow.

    Eh, I still maintain it's just a piece of paper. If they're committed, they're committed, whether or not they went through some antiquated ceremony designed to tether people and thus their property to families. Remember, it wasn't long ago that women were simply considered property to be given from one man (father) to another (husband).

    Of course, Brad's rep denies he got married ... because he didn't.

    He's seeming a bit desparate to me lately. Is getting Ange to the alter some sort of competition to him?

    That doesn't sound very optimistic of Angie's friend now does it? LOL

    Well, since he would be husband #3, he would already have lost this competition!

    Hmmmm. . . .

    This brings to mind a ritual unique to the American Southwest: "the contemporary Las Vegasinian ceremony." As I recall, sophomorically superfluous sex-talk, tattoos, and vials of blood are involved.
