The showbiz icon, 70, got caught up in a sizzling cheating scandal with the then-president nearly 20 years ago – and sources say Brolin, 71, exploded when Barbra announced the womanizing politico would be the special guest at a ritzy bash at their Malibu estate.
“James is well aware of the romantic history between Barbra and Bill, and he really hit the roof,” said a source close to Oscar-, Grammy-, Emmy- and Tony-winning star Barbra.
“He told Barbra that she’d look ridiculous fawning over Bill at her age, and he was even more incensed that the event invite looked like a wedding invitation – with Barbra’s and Bill’s name listed above his! He even groused about getting second billing to one of her ex-lovers.”
