Angelina Jolie has been linked to voodoo, so has Jennifer Lopez…
Using magic to attract love and sex, to keep a lover faithful, or even to get rid of a pestering ex is far more common than you might think.
Business people, shop workers, office staff, accountants, students, executives and even politicians have been known to have used the magical arts to manipulate the weave of fate to create the kind of love life they wish to have.
Even celebrity divas – who you might imagine would not be short of romantic options – have allegedly harnessed arcane powers to put their love lives to rights, or to nab the lover they most desire.
Angelina and Brad
Angelina Jolie, for example, has been linked with Voodoo. According to a report in the National Enquirer in 2007, Jolie had been taking instruction from a Voodoo priestess several times a week.
She had also bought various books on occult subjects and had been touring the notorious New Orleans cemeteries, no doubt visiting the grave of the famous Voodoo queen Marie Laveau (1801-1881), who is buried in the Saint Louis cemetery.
It looks highly likely. According to a January 2005 report in the New York Daily Times, Jolie gave Brad (who at that time was still married to Aniston) a vial of grey powder, purportedly to ward off accidents. The unusual item was discovered in the glove compartment of Pitt’s car by a close friend. Pitt later revealed to the friend that the vial contained the remnants of a bat.
Shortly after the story broke, I was contacted by reporters to give my expert opinion as to what the vial might have signified. I said: “The vial sounds suspiciously like a Voodoo ‘mojo hand’ or magical charm.”
I went on to state, however, that I was very skeptical about the charm being intended to ward off accidents. In Voodoo, spells using ingredients from bats are usually used in workings of dark magic.
I told the media: “One particular spell uses Bat’s Heart Incense, which is burned to break up a love affair or marriage – very ominous in the light of the Brad Pitt/Jennifer Aniston split.”
I then predicted that Pitt and Jolie would marry and have kids together. This wasn’t so much psychic ability on my part – more the certainty that Jolie was manipulating Pitt by magic to snare him as her husband and to have future children with him.
Jennifer Lopez, or “J.Lo”, is another celebrity who has reportedly used the dark arts in matters of romance. In 2006, her former husband, Ojani Noa, claimed that the Latino actress and singer cast Voodoo spells on him and other lovers. After their marriage ended, he claimed “she was doing bad things to a lot of people.”
Noa stated that J.Lo practiced a branch of Voodoo known as Santeria, which draws on African traditions of chanting, trance states and animal sacrifice. It is most commonly practiced in the Caribbean and in The Bronx in New York, where J.Lo comes from.
This wasn’t the first time it had been alleged that J.Lo may be a devotee of Santeria, also known as the “Way of the Saints”. In 2003, it was reported that she called off her wedding to Ben Affleck after her spiritual adviser, Santerian priestess Merle Gonzalez, warned against it.
