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.
