Did Brad Pitt’s acting gigs trigger his reported alcohol issues? Angelina Jolie supposedly cited Brad’s alleged substance abuse as a reason for filing for divorce, and HollywoodLife.com is hearing that his time on set didn’t help anything. Get the EXCLUSIVE details about Brad’s partying with cast and crew right here!
“Brad was always looking for an escape. He loved spending time with the family but he also loved getting away from the tension around Angie,” an insider revealed to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “Brad loved to have a few beers with his friends on the cast and crew. On Allied Brad and his pals on set would drink beers till late into the night, laugh, tell stories and have a great time. It was Brad’s release.”
While it doesn’t sound like things got out of hand during Brad‘s partying with his co-stars, the fact that he needed to use it as an “escape” from his troubles at home certainly couldn’t have made any drinking issues any better. Plus, Brad was rumored to be cheating on Angelina with his Allied co-star Marion Cotillard — so if he was drinking with the cast late into the night, surely Angie was at least a little concerned about what her husband was up to!
In fact, our source said that Angelina would call Brad non-stop when he’d be on set late, but Brad wouldn’t answer his phone because he “just didn’t want to deal with her.” Oh dear, perhaps this is where the marriage-ending issues arose?
When Angelina filed for divorce on Sept. 19, she cited “irreconcilable differences” and her entertainment attorney Robert Offer said in a statement that she made the decision to divorce Brad for the “health of the family.” This was reported to be a result of Brad’s consumption of both weed and alcohol, as well as an “anger problem” she believes he has. Because of all of this, Angelina is also asking for full physical custody of their six children, only giving Brad joint legal custody and visitation rights. Brad may have used his partying with cast and crew as a release from his at-home tension, but it seems Angelina used it as a reason to release him!
HollywoodLifers, do you think Brad’s partying on set played a part in Angelina’s reason for filing for divorce?
