Angelina Jolie, 44, and Brad Pitt, 55, may be divorced but they still have to work together when it comes to the custody of their children, and now we’re learning the biggest issue that Angelina is still having trouble dealing with. The actress, who shares six children, including Maddox, 18, Pax, 15, Zahara, 14, Shiloh, 13, and 11-year-old twins, Knox and Vivienne, with Brad, is having a hard time accepting the fact that her ex-husband is preventing her from moving abroad with the five children who are still minors. Since the talented actor shares a custody agreement with Angie, she must stay in the U.S. so he can see the children on a regular basis.

“Angelina’s very frustrated that Brad won’t agree to her and the kids living abroad,” a source EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife. “It’s the one thing she can’t get over because it’s impacting how she’s able to live her life. Angelina’s a citizen of the world, she has a home in Cambodia, she’s building a home in Africa, she’d love to raise her kids overseas. But that isn’t something Brad’s been willing to agree to and he’s been very clear that it’s not up for negotiation. So she’s resigned herself to being in LA until the twins are 18 but that doesn’t mean she’s not bothered by it, it’s very frustrating.”
Angelina first mentioned her limits with moving in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar, which was published on Nov. 5. “I would love to live abroad and will do so as my children turn 18,” she said in the interview. “Right now I’m having to base where their father chooses to live.” Another source told us that Brad was taken aback by Angelina’s comment and even felt disappointed in it.
Brad is disappointed, he finds it pretty disheartening that she would make that sort of comment and try to paint him as the bad guy, especially since he’s been so flexible and understanding when it comes to her travel schedule with the kids,” the source EXCLUSIVELY told us earlier this month. “But he won’t retaliate and he won’t respond, he does not feel that it’s in his kids’ best interest to share details about the custody arrangement so he will remain tight-lipped as always.”
