Shocking Video Shows Mom And Humanitarian Angelina Jolie Exploited By Scumbag From Her Past

Angelina Jolie Drug VideoThis morning headlines are ablaze with allegations of a shocking new video released of Angelina Jolie that convicted drug dealer Franklin Meyer claims he shot. The 16-minute footage was allegedly filmed with Jolie’s consent in 1999 after she called him to her Manhattan home to sell her heroin and cocaine. Jolie is seen walking around an apartment and allegedly having a conversation with her famous father, the actor Jon Voight. I’m not going to post the video here because you can watch it pretty much anywhere if you do a quick google search  because I feel it is amazingly lame that the press can release a video that’s over 15 years old and for what purpose? To show Jolie once took drugs? She has admitted this before. In 2011 she said to 60 Minutes:

I went through heavier, darker times and I survived them. I didn’t die young, so I’m very lucky. There are other artists and people who didn’t survive certain things.’

‘I think people can imagine that I did the most dangerous and I did the worst,’ she said at the time. ‘For many reasons I shouldn’t be here. You think of those too many times where you came close to too many dangerous things, too many chances taken too far.’

Even if the video shows a “strung-out” Jolie it’s hard for me to be scandalized by this. I have done many stupid things in my own life and I think a lot of us look back on our pasts and cringe, and when you look at all of the incredible humanitarian work Jolie does now it just seems so icky to be dredging up something from her past and scattering it all over the media with headlines like these:

I have no idea if she is on drugs in the video or not, but even if she was, I think she was about 24-years-old at the time. As far as her rambling, she looks like any other person does pacing when they are on a phone call. And yes, her apartment is messy, but it would take someone three minutes to clean up the Diet Coke cans and Evian bottles.

I know when people decide to become famous they take a risk that their personal lives will no longer be personal, but this isn’t some current media hungry celeb pitching a fit and being filmed by the paparazzi having a tantrum outside a nightclub. This is a mom who for the most part stays pretty low-key and donates a lot of time and money to making the world a better place. Yes, she is an actor and director and famous person but it feels pretty invasive to me that a video posted of her ages ago and maybe not being in the best of health resurfaces now – you know, after she had a preventative double mastectomy in 2013. And this Meyer dude who released this video? Same dude who sold unauthorized photos to Star magazine of a young Angelina reportedly high on heroin, posing in S&M style photos with tape on her nipples and lying on her back with a dog leash around her neck. What a class act.

I can’t get all pearl clutchy about this because big freaking whoop. So, a famous person may have done drugs in the past. And now she is a mom. Just like millions of other women on the planet, minus the famous celebrity part. I know we all hear pap things like mistakes can come back to haunt you, but as far as I’m concerned, Jolie seems like a lovely person and a good mom, and this Meyer guy just seems like another scumbag, hoping to make a quick buck of a woman who was once in a bad situation.
