Angelina Jolie has COMPLETELY cut off contact with her husband Brad Pitt after filing for divorce on Sept. 19, just a minute before the courts closed that night, making it almost impossible for him to find a lawyer. Now that she is refusing to talk or text with him, we can only imagine how difficult things have become for the family. Read on for more details on the heartbreaking estrangement.
Angelina Jolie, 41, is making it extremely clear she wants absolutely nothing to do with husband Brad Pitt, 52, having “blocked all incoming text messages and also Brad’s number,” according to an Us Weekly source. And Brad is not handling it well at all. “He is beside himself and has been crying. He was completely caught off guard and blindsided and had no idea she would do this,” another insider reported to Us Weekly. “Angelina filed the court papers a minute before the courts closed on Monday night. He didn’t have a lawyer or anything.” How helpless he must have felt dealing with that all at once!
The Tomb Raider actress is well-known for being fiercely protective of the six children she shares with Brad, and so it’s no surprise to us she’d want to try and shield them from the drama that has ensued since the divorce was made public. “Angelina is devastated that it has come to this, but will do everything in her power to protect her family,” another insider told Us Weekly. And what it has come to is pretty extreme. Apart from cutting off communication with Brad entirely, she has also taken the children to a rental property in Malibu where she has barricaded them all inside. Though Angelina’s decision to ask for a divorce is allegedly a last minute one according to some sources, she reportedly rented the property weeks ago.
So many pieces of the puzzle are still missing. Brad is reportedly waiting to be cleared by the FBI for child abuse allegations before he sees the children, though the kids have allegedly been asking for him. And he is also being accused of cheating with his co-star Marion Cotillard, an accusation both he and Marion have denied. We can only hope in all of this the children are safe, which is what’s most important.
