It’s becoming a case of he said/she said in Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s divorce. As shocking new allegations have come to light about Brad, his camp seems to be spinning a tale of their own — and it involves the actress completely ignoring all his requests when it came to the split.
Angelina Jolie, 41, reportedly blindsided Brad Pitt, 52, when she filed for divorce…especially because he was hoping she would do it much less publicly than it ended up becoming, according to People. “He was appealing to her to do this quietly,” an insider close to the actor tells the mag. “Not to save the marriage, but to consider the well-being of the children. And it was ignored.”
Since news broke that the couple was ending their 14 year relationship and 2 year marriage, the 52-year-old has maintained that the kids are his priority. However, since releasing his statement to that effect, shocking claims have been made against the actor, alleging that he was verbally and physically abusive to the children, while allegedly drunk, during a scary incident on Sept. 14.
Meanwhile, Angie revealed that she filed for divorce for the “health of her family,” so both stars seem to be focused on the kids, at least publicly. Amid all this drama, we haven’t seen either star out in public, although the kids were photographed with Angelina’s brother, James Haven, at a park on Sept. 18.
Besides just begging his wife to keep their divorce private, Brad also reportedly begged her for a second chance and offered to get help at therapy to fix the problems in their marriage, according to The Sun. But clearly, whatever happened — whether it was the alleged abuse or not — pushed the actress over the edge…and there was no turning back.
HollywoodLifers, do you think Angie should’ve filed for divorce more privately?
