(Newser) – A Brangelina breakup is coming down the pike "within 18 months, probably sooner," a new book about the power couple claims. "I talked to several people in Brad's family who wished they'd break up today," Ian Halperin, author of Brangelina: The Untold Story of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, tells the New York Post. So why the trouble in paradise? The two often have screaming matches, with Jolie "threatening him and lashing out," a limo driver said. She's "manipulative," paranoid that he's cheating, and thinks he's a pothead.

Halperin's prediction: "They're going to split amicably, work out some kind of arrangement with the kids, and everything will be very civilized. Then you're going to see unidentified friends leak stories how Angelina couldn't put up with Brad's partying and drinking and his pot smoking."
