Was Brad Pitt’s parenting what ended his marriage with Angelina Jolie? Just after news broke that the two are getting divorced, it was reported that Angelina could no longer stand his ‘methods’ of parenting their kids. Get the shocking details right here!
After months of speculation that cheating was ruining Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt‘s marriage, it turns out that they really are getting divorced — but it’s because of the kids, not an affair. Angelina, 41, was the one who decided to file for divorce from Brad, according to TMZ, and it’s because of the way he was parenting their children Vivienne, Knox, Zahara, Maddox, Shiloh, and Pax. So what exactly was he doing?
Well, unfortunately, that detail is still unclear. But sources close to the couple are saying that Angelina was “extremely upset with his methods” of parenting, and Brad’s interaction with their children was ultimately what made her pull the plug on their relationship. While Angelina cited “irreconcilable differences” in the divorce papers, it sounds like these differences stemmed from the way they’ve been raising their kids for the last 12 years.
Because of Angelina’s disapproval of the way Brad, 52, has fathered their children, she’s demanding physical custody of all six kids. As if this all isn’t crazy enough, Angelina is reportedly only wanting the divorce judge to give Brad only two years of visitation rights. This means that she doesn’t want him to have joint physical custody of the kids at all, only joint legal custody. Clearly Angelina does NOT want her kin to grow up the way that Brad was steering them!
While this is is all totally shocking, keep in mind that half of Brangelina’s kids are biologically Brad’s. Although Brad legally adopted Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, and Zahara, 11, after Angelina adopted them herself, Angelina was going to adopt those three children with or without Brad by her side. If he’s not parenting them the way she wants, surely it’s tough for her to cope with — especially when it comes to their biological children, Shiloh, 10, and 8-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne. We’re certainly curious to find out what these not-Angelina-approved “methods” of parenting are!
