Angelina Jolie says she feared for her children’s safety during marriage with Brad Pitt
At one point, Brangelina was the most powerful couple in Hollywood. Way before they got married, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt along with their six kids, were paparazzi’s favorite family. However, everything came crashing down when they announced their separation in 2016. Since then, Jolie has remained mum about the whole situation. Now, she is opening up and sharing some details. According to her, she was scared for her children’s safety during her marriage.
Although their relationship caused quite a stir, they were still the most talked about couple
In 2004, Angelina Jolie and Pitt met on the sets of Mr. and Mrs. Smith. At the time, Brad Pitt was still married to Jennifer Aniston. However, this did not stop the co-stars to fall in love. Within months, Aniston announced her divorce from Pitt. This led to a war between Hollywood. There were two teams who actively began fighting. While some called Jolie home wrecker, others blamed Aniston. Despite all the hate, Brangelina continued to flourish and kept expanding their family. Together, they had six kids, three adopted and three biological. In 2014, the couple officially got married in France. However, the bliss did not last long and Jolie filed for divorce in 2016.
According to reports, Angelina Jolie made this decision to protect her son, Maddox
While details are not clear, it was reported that Brad Pitt became verbally and physically abusive. According to news outlets, he was drunk and had an altercation with Maddox, his and Angelina Jolie’s eldest son. At the time of the incident, the family was traveling in their private plane. The rumors also came out that Pitt might be under investigation for child abuse. Although LAPD denied their involvement, the FBI was allegedly involved. This fueled Jolie’s decision to file for divorce and custody of her children.
Recently, Angelina Jolie opened up about her messy divorce.
While the judge has granted Pitt joint legal and physical custody of the kids, Angelina Jolie is working on revoking the decision. At the same time, the judge denied her request for the children to testify. These days, she is busy promoting her book, Know Your Rights and Claim Them: A Guide for Youth. During a recent interview, Angelina Jolie addressed the abuse claims she made against her ex-husband. She said:
I’m not the kind of person who makes decisions like the decisions I had to make lightly. It took a lot for me to be in a position where I felt I had to separate from the father of my children.
Furthermore, she said that she cannot speak about the details of the case. However, she is scared for the safety of her family. At the same time, Angelina Jolie hopes to put all of this behind them and move forward.
I just want my family to heal. And I want everyone to move forward ― all of us, including their dad. I want us to heal and be peaceful. We’ll always be a family.
Despite the ongoing custody battle, Jolie and her kids have been seen out and about in LA. They seem to be moving forward with their lives along with their mom.
