Pitt 'recovering' from meningitis

Pitt is expected to make a full recovery
Actor Brad Pitt has been released from a US hospital after being diagnosed with viral meningitis.
The 41-year-old was admitted to a Los Angeles hospital earlier this week suffering from a "flu-like" illness.

He was later diagnosed with a mild case of viral meningitis - an illness that involves inflammation of the tissues covering the brain and spinal cord.

Pitt's publicist Cindy Guagenti said the actor was "doing well" and recovering at home.

Viral meningitis - although considered serious - is rarely fatal in people with normal immune systems.

Pitt was admitted to hospital just days after returning from Ethiopia with his Mr and Mrs Smith co-star Angelina Jolie, who recently adopted a baby from the African country.

The actor separated from his wife, Friends star Jennifer Aniston in January.

She filed for divorce two months later, citing irreconcilable differences.


Seems he's been very lucky!
