Angelina Jolie’s number one priority during her divorce from Brad Pitt has always been her children, and HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned that they’re helping her rethink how she handles herself in court. She’s decided to back off with the ‘aggressive divorce tactics’ against Brad for the sake of their kids.
Doing it for the kids. Angelina Jolie, 41, has consistently affirmed that her six children are her biggest priority since she announced her shocking split from Brad Pitt, 52, and now they’re influencing her in her legal proceedings. “After looking bad in the court of public opinion, Angelina is backing off her aggressive divorce tactics,” a source EXCLUSIVELY tells HollywoodLife.com.
“She wanted to expose the truth about Brad being not as sweet and innocent as his fans think but she didn’t anticipate such a backlash from close friends and family,” our source continues. “Angelina’s trusted advisors have pleaded with her to be more gentle in handling the separation and divorce. Those close to her have also convinced Angie that if she continues to go hard after Brad, the biggest losers will be the people she cares most about, their kids. Her main goal has always been protecting her children.”
Wow. While we are really surprised that Angie is now going to handle things differently with Brad, we’re happy that she’s always thinking about her children. As we previously reported, the hunky actor decided to not file divorce papers in the one month window he had after the actress’ original filing. But does this mean he’s giving up and letting Angelina get full custody of their six children?
Well, had Brad responded with his own paperwork, the custody battle would have turned very ugly, according to TMZ. Complicating matters is the fact that he is being investigated for alleged child abuse — resulting from an alleged physical fight with son Maddox, 15, in Sept. 2016. Currently, Brad is only allowed to visit his children under supervision. We’re curious to see what will happen and how Angie will now handle things in court with her new mindset.
