Angelina Jolie detailed what she described as abusive behavior by ex-husband Brad Pitt in a court filing on Tuesday, escalating a legal battle over a French winery the former couple once shared and revealing new details about the dissolution of their marriage. The filing in a Los Angeles court alleges that Pitt sought to condition Jolie’s sale of her stake in the winery on a nondisclosure agreement that would have barred her from publicly discussing “Pitt’s physical and emotional abuse of her and their children.” Jolie’s filing describes an episode during a September 2016 private plane flight where Pitt allegedly “grabbed Jolie by the head and shook her” before “pushing her into the bathroom wall.”
A budget estimated to be around $22 million US. A heavily hyped comedy from the filmmakers of Trainwreck and Forgetting Sarah Marshall. A flick starring internet phenom Billy Eichner. Bros was supposed to have it all: laughs and a historic status as the first gay rom-com from a major studio. But by the end of opening weekend, the film earned an underwhelming $4.9 million US in North America — far less than $8 to 10 million the studio had predicted. In fact, more people paid to see the re-release

This week's rare North Korean test flight, which sent a missile soaring over Japan, underscored the nuclear-armed state's rapidly advancing arsenal amid stalled denuclearisation talks. Tuesday's ballistic missile was the 39th launched by North Korea this year.

FRANKFURT (Reuters) -The world’s largest dialysis company is seeking out kidney disease patients long before they need the most acute form of care as it plans for growth of new drugs that attack the condition’s causes early on. For decades, Germany's Fresenius Medical Care (FMC) has been the biggest player in the $50 billion U.S. market providing dialysis and related machines that help filter out blood toxins for people whose kidneys have failed to function. The company’s 17.6 billion euros ($17.6 billion) in annual revenue has been sustained for decades by high rates of obesity and diabetes, which contribute to kidney damage.
