A nanny who looked over Angelina Jolie when she was a child has some advice for the A-list actress as she deals with her split from Brad Pitt! Krisann Morel has issued a warning to Angie begging her not to make Brad the bad guy like the actress’ own mom did to her dad, Jon Voight. Whoa!
Krisann Morel, who was Angelina Jolie’s nanny and good friends with the actress’ late mother, Marcheline Bertrand, says she’s noticed major similarities between Angie’s divorce from Brad Pitt, 52, and Marcheline’s split from Jon Voight in the 1970s. Things did NOT end well between Marcheline and Jon — he was estranged from Angie and her brother, James Haven, until after Marcheline’s death in 2007 — and Krisann wants to make sure Angelina doesn’t make that same mistake with her kids.
“I’m speaking out because I want to send a message to Angelina, who I care about very much,” Krisann tells Daily Mail. “I want to tell her, ‘Please don’t cut Brad out of the children’s lives. Don’t use the children as weapons in your divorce. And don’t demonize your husband. Because that is exactly what your mother did when she was breaking up with your father, and the result was you had a lonely and traumatic childhood. Why would you inflict the same tragedy on your kids?'”
Krisann describes Angelina as a “lonely and troubled” child, and she’s convinced that it’s because of how Marcheline reacted to the divorce. Now, she wants to make sure the 41-year-old is able to “pull it together for the kids,” which, she says, is the same advice she tried to give Marcheline all those years ago.
Angelina asked for sole physical custody of the children when she filed for divorce from Brad on Sept. 19, however, the pair’s lawyers have been negotiating behind the scenes to figure out what’s best for the six kids. Right now, Angie has full custody, with Brad allowed supervised visits, but that could change after the temporary agreement expires on Oct. 20.
HollywoodLifers, do you think Angie is demonizing Brad? Do you agree with her nanny’s advice?
