While Angelina Jolie deals with her devastating divorce from Brad Pitt, she’s pushing away her own father, Jon Voight. HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY learned that Jon ‘wants to help with his grandchildren,’ but Angie isn’t letting that happen. See why there’s a ‘divide’ between the two.
Angelina Jolie, 47, has always had a tumultuous relationship with her father, Jon Voight, 77, but now the two seem to be further apart than ever. After Angie filed for divorce from Brad Pitt, 52, back in Sept. 2016, Jon has been trying to be there for her, but it’s backfiring terribly. “Angelina‘s father is doing his best to be caring and supportive of his daughter and wants to help with his grandchildren during her divorce from Brad Pitt,” a source EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife.com.
However, Jon’s offers to help his family aren’t being taken the way he would like. “The delicate situation has only increased the divide between Angie and Jon. Not only has Angie told her dad very little about the divorce from Brad, but she has given her father strict instructions to not discuss the family issues regarding the split and the kids with anyone,” the source told us. This could be due to that fact that Jon has reportedly leaked private information about his daughter in the past. Although it was years ago, the trust they once had may still be broken.
Aside from any reported motives, we hear “Jon wants to be a loving father, but it is challenging when Angie does not give him the room to help out.” This is so sad. It’s hard to believe things went south, because, Jon played coy when asked about his daughter’s divorce at the end of Sept. 2016. He told FOX News Channel’s Your World With Neil Cavuto, “I certainly am concerned about the children and my love is with my daughter and I hope things work out well.” He seemed to be following Angie’s rules then, so we’re not sure what could have happened.
Angie’s rejecting behavior toward her father could just be a result of her frustrations from her drug out divorce to Brad. Not to mention, the family is reportedly being investigated by the Department of Family and Child Services, for alleged verbal and physical on Brad’s part. Ugh.
Not to mention, this whole ordeal is coming down pretty hard on the couples’ six children — Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Shiloh, 10, Zahara, 11, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 8. There are multiple reports that the children are dividing and lashing out. Maddox reportedly laid into Brad during their first reported meeting and claimed the actor was “not” his father. If that wasn’t bad enough, Pax and Shiloh reportedly told Angie, “they’d prefer to live with their father.” Wow.
As the investigation into whether Brad was reportedly verbally or physically abusive toward his children or the actress continues, it looks the actor’s visits could be monitored for a lot longer. The investigation has reportedly extended, causing speculation that it can’t be good for Brad’s future.
HollywoodLifers, do you think Brad and Angie will ever get back together?
