Things Get Messy Between Angelina Jolie And Brad Pitt, Creates A Tabloid Meltdown
Since the time the news of Angelina Jolie filing for divorce has hit the net, it has actually created a tabloid meltdown. She filed for divorce, and the trigger was a conflict over the kids, substance abuse and anger.
Angelina filed legal documents Monday, September 19, 2016, citing irreconcilable differences. She’s asking for physical custody of the couple’s 6 children, Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 8, and has asked the judge to give Brad Pitt visitation.
Sources connected with the couple have stated that Angelina’s decision to file has to do with the way Brad Pitt was parenting the children, as she was extremely upset with his methods. His consumption of weed and possibly alcohol, and mixed with what she believes is an anger problem, made her take this drastic step.
Sources close to the couple have stated that Brad Pitt became increasingly upset over Angelina’s political ambitions. Apparently, he was especially upset that Angelina had taken the kids to various war-torn countries, including Lebanon and Iraq. Things got extremely tense when the celebrity couple argued over taking their kids to Syria to help rebuild the war torn country.
If this was not enough, the Los Angeles Department Of Children And Family Services are also investigating a claim of child abuse made against Brad Pitt. Even the FBI is investigating this allegation. However, sources close to Brad Pitt insist that the actor is not guilty of child abuse. While he did engage in a shouting match aboard a plane recently, there was no inappropriate physical contact.
Brad Pitt, 52, and Angelina Jolie, 41, were married for two years (August 2014) before their split. Their relationship became the subject of speculation in 2004, when they co-starred in Mr. & Mrs. Smith. At the time, Brad Pitt was married to Jennifer Aniston.
In the divorce document, the estranged couple’s date of separation was listed as September 15, 2016. The last time one saw them together was in July, when they took the twins, Knox and Vivienne, out for a birthday breakfast in West Hollywood.
