Angelina Jolie is still out to destroy Brad Pitt as she seeks full custody of kids: 'He's bracing for the worst'
She feels that he is using their divorce, their children and his alcohol addiction to get the public’s sympathy and support, claims a source
It looks like that the divorce story of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie is not ending anytime soon as a new custody war is looming between the duo, a source has revealed.
Although, both the stars called it splits four years ago on their tumultuous marriage, they are still fighting tooth and nail over the custody of their children.
Pitt and Jolie together have six children – Maddox, 18, Pax, 16, Zahara, 15, Shiloh, 13, Knox, 11, and Vivienne, 11. Since their eldest son, Maddox, is legally an adult, the exes are locked in a fight to secure the custodial rights of the remaining five children.
According to a report, Jolie now wants full custody of their kids. A source also revealed that the 44-year-old feels that Pitt is using their divorce, their children and his alcohol addiction to get the public’s sympathy and support.
“Angie is still out to destroy Brad. She recently filed an emergency motion order and Brad and his attorneys are bracing for the worst. As soon as Brad heard about the motion, he raced out to Angie’s home to discuss it with her," the source said.
“Trust me, it’s the last thing he wanted to do. It was an icy encounter, to say the least. She glared at him and refused to answer any of his questions — she told him to talk to her high-priced attorney. She shut him down and he immediately regretted even trying to be civil with Angie,” the source told the entertainment outlet in its March 2020 issue.
Pitt and Jolie have yet to comment on these claims. However, it should be noted that several anonymous and unverified sources have said many things about the couple in the media over the years.
Recently, one report claimed that the former couple is prepared to "fight to the death" over the kids. A source claimed in a New Idea report that the ‘Mr and Mrs Smith' co-stars are far from reaching a settlement. “Put simply, Brad wants a greater share of custody and Angie's fighting him. He argues the kids would benefit from a psychological perspective if he were given more over-nights and extra time to bond with the kids. But he's having to jump through hoops to change the current arrangement, which Angelina argues is more than adequate,” the source said.
It has also been said that Jolie is furious over her daughter Shiloh Jolie-Pitt taking acting lessons from Pitt's first wife, Jennifer Aniston. The 13-year-old has reportedly landed a small role in the upcoming 'The Goree Girls' where she would co-star with Aniston. However, the 'Maleficent' star is not happy with this as she wanted her daughter to focus on her studies.
“After Jen revealed there was a small role for Shiloh, Brad managed to get Ange to agree on the basis filming wouldn’t interfere with her studies. But Ange is apparently furious – even more so given her daughter will be starring alongside Brad’s first wife. While contract is yet to be signed, Brad’s hoping Ange does not pull any last-minute stunts,” an insider told Woman’s Day New Zealand.
