Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from Brad Pitt on Sept. 19…but her and Brad Pitt were reportedly having problems long before then. In fact, in the months leading up to the split, the couple found living together very difficult, according to a new report.
“Brad is not a saint,” People reports. “And Angelina is absolutely no angel. She has a complicated personality and can be difficult to deal with — she has always been very extreme.” The mag adds that these personality traits made the stars’ home life “increasingly fraught” in the year before Angie officially decided to file.
Of course, based on recent reports, it seems like there’s a lot more that went into this divorce than just that. The final straw for Angelina was an alleged scary incident on the family’s private jet on Sept. 14, during which the actor reportedly got drunk, then allegedly became verbally and physically abusive with his and Angie’s children. However, sources on Brad’s side insist that, even though he placed his hands on 15-year-old Maddox, he didn’t hit him or get physical in any way.
This whole Brangelina split is quickly becoming a major case of he said/she said — and Brad is now accusing his ex of exaggerating the entire child abuse story to hurt him. “Angelina is putting out [the abuse] story to take the kids away from him,” Page Six claims. “Angelina’s team’s campaign to smear him is so aggressive.”
As we previously reported, the 41-year-old will have to have present a judge with solid proof that her six kids are in danger in Brad’s care if she wants to win the full physical custody she’s seeking. It looks like we should gear up for a long, drawn out battle between these two!
HollywoodLifers, do you think Brad and Angie will ever get back together? Are you sad that they broke up?
