Angelina Jolie doesn’t like how she’s being portrayed throughout her divorce with Brad Pitt. She just wants ‘to be a good mom.’
Angelina Jolie isn’t happy that fans are making her out to be the bad guy in her divorce with Brad Pitt. “Angelina feels like she’s being unfairly villainized in this divorce,” a source close to the actress, 43, tells HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY.
The Maleficent star believes she’s been prioritizing the best interest of her children. “All she wants is to be a good mom,” the insider explains. “She’s doing what she feels is the best for her kids and people are passing judgment and acting like she’s the bad guy.” Jolie shares six kids with Pitt: Maddox, 17, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 10.
Pitt and Jolie’s custody trial is reportedly set for Dec. 4. As the date nears, Jolie is trying to ignore the critics. “But when it comes down to the opinions of others Angelina really doesn’t waste a lot of time worrying because she knows she can’t change anyone’s mind and she’s not going to bother,” the insider shares. “All she cares about is what the judge is going to say, that’s the only outside opinion that matters to her.”
The former couple reportedly decided to try and settle their custody arrangement out of court. “Both parties are working together to try and reach an out-of-court settlement and avoid an actual trial,” a source told Entertainment Tonight. “Both parties want what’s best for the kids,” the source adds.
