Billy Bob Thornton, ex-husband of Angelina Jolie, is making a splash in headlines these days and it’s not for his on-screen prowess. His estranged daughter, Amanda Brumfield, has been found guilty of aggravated manslaughter of the death of a one-year-old girl in Orlando, Fla. To make matters worse, the infant was actually her best friend’s daughter!
