A source told Hollywoodlife.com that Angelina doesn’t want her kids to be in position where they have to choose between her and Brad.
“Angelina’s kids are everything to her, their wellbeing is her top priority,” the insider said. “She loves them all dearly. Since the divorce, she has felt guilty about the trauma the kids are dealing with so she has doubled her efforts to make them happy. So yes, there have been lots of new clothes, trips to the toy shops and to amusement parks. But it’s got nothing to do with her trying to turn them against Brad, it’s all about making life a little brighter for them during a very hard time in all their lives.”
There were recent reports that Angelina has absolutely moved on from Brad and reportedly wants him out of her life for good! “The days of Angelina missing Brad have well and truly passed, all she wants now is for him to be out of her life, period,” a source to HollywoodLife report.
“Angelina really resents having anything to do with Brad, and wishes she could just forget he even exists, but because of the children she’s not allowed to do that, and he’s going to have to remain a part of her life for at least the foreseeable future. Brad is actually willing to be pretty reasonable and civil for the sake of the kids, but if anything that just infuriates Angelina even more–he really can’t win at this point whatever he does.”
TMZ reported earlier this summer that now Jolie is making it really difficult for Brad Pitt to bond with the six kids they have together. The website’s sources say that Angelina continues to influence the kids. It looks like Brad is having trouble connecting with his children and some of whom don’t even want to see him.
According to the source the boys have been influenced the most. Angelina has not blocked Brad’s ability to see the kids, but they say Angelina continues to drive a wedge between Brad and the kids and it’s had a significant impact on his ability to restore his relationship with them. Angelina claimed that Brad Pitt has failed to support their children. Yesterday Jolie’s legal team alleged that he only “loaned Angelina money, which is not child support”. In a court filing, the actress claimed that Pitt had not been paying “meaningful child support” since she filed for divorce in 2016. “[Pitt] has a statutory duty to pay child support. As of present, [he] has paid no meaningful child support since separation,” Jolie’s lawyer said in the filing.
In response, Pitt’s legal team said the actor has paid more than $1.3m in costs and loaned $8m to Jolie to help her buy a house. They added that Jolie’s most recent court filing was “a thinly-veiled effort to manipulate media coverage”.
“My focus is my children, our children, and it is — and my focus is finding this way through. And as I said, we are and forever will be a family,” Jolie told the BBC. “And so that is how I’m coping. I’m coping with finding a way through to make sure this somehow makes us stronger and closer.”
