ET: Brad Pitt is ‘sickened’ by Angelina for ‘letting’ their custody battle go public

Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio back in their car on the set of 'Once Upon a Time in Hollywood'

This week was supposed to be full of Brad Pitt’s Vindication stories. I could already feel Team Pitt gathering around to leak all kind of nasty information about Angelina Jolie and how she’s a terrible mother for… you know, taking care of the kids after Brad’s violent drunk incident on the plane two years ago. They were supposed to have a big custody hearing on Tuesday, and Team Pitt was promoting the hearing like it was going to be the big Come To Jesus moment for the custody case. And… nothing happened. I think Angelina’s side released this completely non-committal statement: “The interim arrangement was agreed upon by both parties after it was recommended by their custody evaluator. There was no longer a need for the hearing.” After Jolie’s team likely released that statement, Team Pitt went around to every outlet claiming that the custody hearing was merely DELAYED and that the first reports were “suspiciously sympathetic towards Jolie.” Sigh.

That back-and-forth was minor compared to all of the shenanigans going on this month with the Brangelina divorce. As I’ve covered every major story from these two, a picture has formed, and that picture is not flattering to Brad. I believe that his team has made a concerted effort over the past month (especially) to smear Angelina on multiple fronts, in multiple outlets. It’s gross, it’s trashy, it’s petty and it’s really obvious. Again, it’s obvious TO ME what’s happening, but other people might have other theories. In any case, here’s the kicker after weeks of smearing his ex to anyone who would listen: Brad is “sickened” by how ANGIE has made all of this so public.

Looks like Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are still far from amicable. Despite recently reaching an interim custody agreement, a source tells ET that the actor is “sickened” by his estranged wife and her legal team for letting their child custody battle play out in public.

“He wants this settled out of sight,” the source says of Pitt, who is currently in Los Angeles with their six children — Maddox, 16, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12 and twins Knox and Vivienne, 10. “He knows this isn’t fair to the children. He’s saddened that they have to be a part of this [public fight].”

The source adds that even with their latest legal agreement, this is just the beginning for Pitt and Jolie as they continue the divorce process.

“There’s a long road ahead,” the source says. “There is still a lot of sorting out to do.”

I think Brad is legitimately sickened… that his public image is struggling as the divorce and custody case drags on and everyone keeps being reminded of the fact that he did some sh-t on the plane and the sh-t was so bad that Angelina took the kids and left him and she never looked back. He’s sickened that he has to go to all these lengths to smear Angelina when all she had to do was NOT LEAVE HIM, amirite. That’s what all this feels like to me – he’s still punishing her for leaving him. And then he’s blaming her for his own smear job on her. Brad really isn’t who we thought he was, right?

    Dear Brad,
    If you’re truly sickened by Angie’s public revelations about your custody battle, maybe you shouldn’t add to those revelations by revealing how sickened you are.

    • Myrtle says:

      This story makes me sick. His side is the one with the blabbermouth sources talking to tabloids left and right. All we get from Angie are happy pics of her out with the kids doing fun activities, or updates on her humanitarian work. She hasn’t bashed him once. Who’s playing this out in public, Brad?

    • Lisa says:

      The comments on dListed are so disheatening. No one over there seems to think that he’s the one leaking all these stories- he’s just responding to “awful Angie”. Gah.

      • Hmmm says:

        Dlisted has always hated Angelina. Started with the awful triangle like most insane Pitt fans excused him and put full blame on Jolie. Not surprised they’re still nuts about leaky Pitt also wouldn’t be surprised if ex brange loonies are there yelling about Angelina. They can’t wrap their heads around the fact that Angelina ended their fairytale -basically they are still loony.

    • minx says:

      He’s been really foolish about this whole mess. In the end, Hollywood won’t give him what his own children will give him. He’s really going to regret it if he doesn’t repair his relationships with them.

  2. Char says:

    Shania Twain was right about him.

  3. Melania says:

    I’m sickened by Brad Pitt and his PR games. So awful, he’s a jerk. He reminds me of Thomas Markle, the same abusive behavior.

  4. Missy says:

    If all this coming from Brad, he sounds like a baby in denial. I’m so disappointed and disgusted, I used to really like him, thought he seemed like a good person, and I loved a lot of his movies. I think he’s still drinking, that’s my guess anyway.

    • Maya says:

      Me too – I started liking him after he got together Angelina. Now I can’t even stomach looking at his face.

      • .... says:

        He has the most irritating face…, I don’t know what it is.

        I think he looks smug or arrogant usually….and I don’t find that attractive.

      • Lilly says:

        Me either and it makes me laugh that Kaiser/this site use this photo. Each time I think: “YASSS! Keep this one going.” I really used to love him, but he’s so petty. That alone I could not stand, but especially when kids are involved I want to yell: “Be the effin’ grown up!”

    • KB says:

      I hope he’s not still drinking. He’s got to face himself at some point. He has used alcohol and his relationships to avoid figuring out who he is all his life. It’s not surprising he has found himself here, his avoidance has finally caught up to him.

    • Rebecca says:

      You’re right. I think he’s still drinking too. I can’t think of another reason why he would be such an arrogant bully. What purpose does it serve? I think he’s trying desperately to get this custody thing pushed through in a way that makes him look like the good guy so he doesn’t have to be worried about hiding his drinking anymore. In his mind he can have partial custody of his children and drink too if he plays it right. It’s too bad most people aren’t seeing through this.

    • Carrie says:

      He is a baby in denial, he’s always been juvenile and manipulative. She’s well rid of him.

  5. Cidy says:

    If hes so worried about what his kids will see in the media maybe he should stop running to the press and spewing garbage about their mom and do things in court like an adult.

  6. Xoxo says:

    Just a reminder that there was a non refuted story in US Weekly (that Lainey reported on) that part of the plane was damaged as a result of the ‘incident’
    https://www.laineygossip.com/US-Weeklys-new-cover-featuring-Brad-Pitt-and-Angelina-Jolie-split-is-demonstrably-and-undeniably-pro-Pitt/45069

    • roses says:

      Yikes, that is insane! It was so many different stories that came out when they spilt I guess I missed this one but if that’s true dear lord she and those were probably scared to death.

    • Anastasia says:

      Yikes is right. Yeah, she couldn’t stay with him. No way. Not even if she didn’t have any kids.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      I guess a lot of the “he didn’t hit him in the face!” crowd doesn’t realize that a drunk father smashing things is pretty scary too. the violence doesn’t have to be directed AT you for it to scare you.

      jaysus Brad, STFU already!

    • Maya says:

      Isn’t a federal crime to damage government property?

    • TheOriginalMia says:

      No wonder those kids have trust issues with him. Damaging their plane mid-flight. F’ing hell! The fear those kids experienced and it was inflicted by their father. He needs to sit his ass down and let those kids heal.

  7. Adorable says:

    He through the first punch by Releasing custody agreements for the summer with selective wording in how jolie would lose the kids,but yet when she fights back exposing him not providing adequate child support,he is sickened??Gimme a break Brad…I’m sure Angie has a lot to be sickened about during your alcoholic fueled tirade on that plane yet we’ve heard Giltch about it.Grow up & Be a Man!

  8. Belluga says:

    “How dare you let me make it public?!”

    • marymoon says:

      “You KNEW it wouldn’t work and I would look like an even bigger a$$hole! You’re such a bi!ch!!”

  9. Ariel says:

    With the exception of Thelma and Louise, pretty sure Pitt has ruined his movies for me. Can’t think of one I’d sit through at this point. Including the Tarantino thing their doing now, basically on Sharon Tate’s grave.

    • WingKingdom says:

      I’m feeling vindicated because I have never liked Brad Pitt and never seen the supposed “hotness”- except in Thelma and Louise. I’m not getting anywhere near this new Tarantino movie for a multitude of reasons.

  10. Zapp Brannigan says:

    Looking back is anyone really surprised that he is behaving like this? When he began his relationship with Jolie ( whatever your opinion on how that started) he sat back and first of all let Jennifer Aniston be skewered in the press and then let the media bash AJ for most of their relationship and marriage. In interviews all he had to say was that he felt he was bored with JA and in later interviews that AJ was a good choice as a mother for his children. He could have shut down all that noise by issuing a simple statement in the early days that said he regretted the hurt and unfair scrutiny his actions had caused JA and in later interviews that AJ was a good partner and mother. But he only ever sees and speaks to how things reflect on him, he wants a pristine media image and he does not care who he harms along the way to maintain that, he has now thrown his oldest child under the bus with the whole “never hit him in the face” nonsense and let online speculation continue that a minor child acted the brat and “caused” this plane show down. This acting out in the media by him now may be because Jolie left him and he is not accustomed to hearing the word “no” from anyone, after all he is the great Brad Pitt.

    • T says:

      I was thinking on that. He let and made Aniston be attacked by the media, being painted as plain, boring, selfish for not wanting kids (sth she never said) and now he is doing the same with Jolie. The way he spoke about his marriage with Aniston was disrespectfull. That is the type of guy to stay far from.

      • .... says:

        Not just let her…but he put that out there as the storyline……I don’t doubt for a second his ppl were posting in the comments sections abt Jen….setting the tone….every time there was an article. It was so obvious.
        He still uses that tactic. Flood it w pro Brad comment…..and bash the ex..get out what ya really want to say…….without the judge or lawyers knowing and it being anonymous.

        He’s a coward.

    • Eliza says:

      The irony is AJ cares so little about what’s written about her. That’s why they could last as long as they did. She was an evil seductress who stole him while carrying blood in a vile binging on heroin with dramatic weight loss if papers are right. But instead of screaming to every outlet they were wrong…
      She just chilled, did projects she wanted, raised awareness for cancer, became a director, humanitarian, dame, kept involved in her kids lives and so on.

      Now her team only have to say one or two words and his team goes into overdrive because HE cant take it. She’s been there and done that.

    • bap says:

      @Zapp Brannigan Thank you for telling the truth about Brat pitt.

    • WingKingdom says:

      Oh that is so true and says a lot about his relationship with Maddox. I would be very clear in defending my child and accepting the blame for what happened because I am the adult. He is no kind of parent at all.

    • ShazBot says:

      Didn’t he cry on Oprah’s couch about how badly he wanted to be a father? I always thought that was a rather tacky way of throwing JA under the bus. Maybe you don’t want the same things out of life, but there are respectful ways of communicating that.

    • lucy2 says:

      Well said. He skated off that first marriage and painted himself as a man who just needed so much more, and look, he’s a humanitarian and a father now too! It was disgraceful that he never defended his first wife, or his second. He let the tabloids and gossipers tear each apart, because it kept the blame off of him and let him continue to do whatever he wanted.
      Seeing how much his camp is putting out there against Angelina, I wouldn’t be surprised if he did that with Jennifer back in the day too, planting stories and terrible headlines like this.
      Poor kids.

      • Maya says:

        Exactly and that’s why I said last week that I owe Jennifer an apology because I believed those grab.

        This time it is not only his ex who is getting smeared, his own children are getting blamed and called names. He is beyond while and Ben Affleck seems a better father than Brad.

      • .... says:

        I think it’s obvious at this point, that he has a basic lack of respect for women and family. He seems like deep down he hates women….he either uses them or is viscous to them once he no longer has a use for them.

  11. Scal says:

    A river runs through it is still amazing and even bad brad won’t take that away.

  12. Ides of March says:

    Dear heaven, I’m beginning to dislike him intensely. Like Lena Dunham, Thomas Markle, Johnny Depp level of dislike.

  13. bap says:

    He such a Hypocrite. He should have paid his child support in private then.

  14. Jess says:

    Ugh. Officially done with him.

  15. Jennifer says:

    He’s sickened that Angelina stopped covering for him when he leaked those documents to make her seem like she’s in danger of losing custody (something those kids are probably very frightened of and could have triggered an emotional response for all we know). She hit back with the reality of the situation, which makes Brad look bad, so now he’s “sickened”. Where was his statement of disgust for all those tabloids smearing AJ and Maddox? If he truly felt that way because he cares so much about the kids, he needs to condemn ALL the tabloid stories for making it so public, but he can’t because it’s his own team that perpetuates it.

  16. bap says:

    He is not a real man. He can not take criticism that’s why he needs the drive by lying tabloids. Angelina is very strong woman, she is tough as nails.

  17. Anastasia says:

    I used to be neutral about him, but then when he was with Angelina, my feelings turned more positive.

    Now it seems those positive feelings were just by association with Angelina, because wow he’s a douche.

  18. Giddy says:

    It’s pretty bad when the best thing you can say about your behavior is that you didn’t hit your son in the face. Brad is a pretty boy gone rancid.

    • Sidewithkids says:

      It’s been two years and he still doesn’t get it. His boys don’t want to even visit him. So to him that means go to the tabloid(s) and bash their mother. Lol, what an idiot. This doesn’t seem like behavior of a genuine guy, a guy who wants to be w/ kids. I don’t think he really does actually, it’s more about his image. Notice, throughout, all this he never once asked for sole custody, if you are so sickened and the mother of your children is so bad, why have you not asked to take away the children alltogether. It’s b/c he doesn’t care about that. He just wants revenge b/c Angie left is sorry behind.

      Also, I think he’s the jealous one and pining for her. She doesn’t even call/talk to dude and you can tell that’s making him crazier. He’s a sorry excuse for a man. More and more Brad is exhibiting the same type of behavior of the Orange Man in the White House. SMH.

      • KLJ says:

        Someone said it! I definitely think he’s pining for her. Angelina very well still loves him but she’s not going to give in, she’s not going to except him back, and she’s not going to let that love overrule her sense. Angelina left him. Whatever imperfections in their marriage, I certainly don’t believe Brad was looking to leave her or thought that their marriage was going to bust up. I think he definitely wants what they had back and the knowledge that it’s not going to happen, that he’s f’d up in so many ways, is eating him up inside and causing him to lash out.

      • Myrtle says:

        Also, with joint custody he won’t have to pay child support to Her. A lot of guys can’t stomach that. The decent guys pay it gladly—even real womanizing breeder types like Jagger and Pacino—they don’t fuss about it.

      • Sage says:

        I don’t believe he’s pinning for Angelina at all. He is showing that he is vengeful and controlling.

  19. Jennifer says:

    Also, there’s a game I like to play with my ex’s texts, I call it “the projector detector” where I rewrite was he really means in my head. If someone is accusing you of something you know for a fact is not true, chances are they are projecting how they think onto you. For instance:

    Brad: “Angelina is keeping me from my kids! How dare she take this public, I really feel bad the kids are in the middle! I am so sickened that she is fighting dirty!”

    Projector Detector: “My behavior is keeping me away from my kids! How dare she respond publicly to my public smear campaign, I thought she would take the high road to my low road because the kids are in the middle! I am sickened that she is fighting back, she should let me throw her and our children under the bus to save my image!”

    Doing this helps me keep my sanity when dealing with my crazy ex, I saw it on a website a few years ago and it reallyyyyy helped decode some of the more confusing messages.

    • Vanessa says:

      This is a very good tool to use. I’m glad it’s helping you, and you’re totally right.

    • Aud says:

      Sooooo much truth. I have an ex like that too. I wince at how many years it took for me to recognize what was going on. Like, I sincerely reached out to let him know that I’m NOT out to take his kids away. And by the way, that was his end goal.

      Ugh. These guys must take frigging classes in this type of manipulation. They’re all so similar.

  20. Ramona Q. says:

    I never liked that Angie and the kids took the last name “Jolie-Pitt” and he didn’t.

  21. cora says:

    But his public image isn’t struggling at all. That is the advantage of being a man in a patriarchy. Angelina has been hated forever. From jealous women hating her for being so beautiful, from mediocre people hating of her for being succesful and different, from minivan groups who keep on calling her names, etc. If anything, her image is even worse with the masses. She has the support of people like me, who admire her journey and overcoming addiction and her service to humanity. But we are a small amount compared to those who hate her, or any other woman who dares to live her life and be succesful in areas where they “shouldn’t”

    • bap says:

      @cora In the mid west in the U.S they probably do not like Angelina much. Globally in 2018 she is the Most admired woman in the world. Angelina is a Global Icon and is respected and liked more than Brat pitt Globally.

      This is a Globally world now. Angelina is her own brand, she does not let the drive by media control her and can promote own herself.

    • KLJ says:

      Actually, I don’t think more people hate her than like/love/support her. I just think that the hateful ones have a bigger mouthpiece. I think most people like Angelina as an actress, a humanitarian, or a mother. Then there are many people that know she’s an actress and are okay with that but are indifferent to her personal life. I think Brad’s image hasn’t suffered. However, I don’t think his popularity is up right now. When he was 1/2 of Brangelina he got a lot of praise and accolades. Being just Brad Pitt, his career won’t suffer but he’ll never have the same popularity. Angelina, on the other hand, will be just fine.

    • Adorable says:

      I actually think his Public image has taken a hit.I think even the biggest “Brat Pitt”fan knows he is in the wrong,but it’s almost to hard for them to believe as all this time Angie they believed she’s still into drugs etc,so instead of facing reality(which they know there is truth there)they deflect.Either way This won’t hurt Jolie,if anything the opposite cause God knows even her “haters”watch her movies,interviews etc.

    • .... says:

      I think it’s totally struggling……he never had a male fan base. Ever. He lost the minivan majority…….then he lost who was left these past two years.

    • Hmmm says:

      well, someone on team leaky Pitt is scared enough to keep on leaking in an attempt to make him the victim of witchy Jolie. Meanwhile Jolie is ignoring him and letting the courts handle it.

  22. Carmen says:

    Just when I think this jerk can’t possibly sink any lower, he takes a shovel and starts digging.

  23. Veronica S. says:

    Keep talking Brad. All I see are the red flags of an abuser who makes sure his victims have no peace.

    • Hmmm says:

      He’s gaslighting AGAIN. He needs some real friends to help him out. Or maybe some real therapy.

  24. Sidewithkids says:

    @jenifer, lol, love the decoder method. Glad that’s helping you to stay sane when dealing w/ your ex. I believe Angie had to stop talking to this idiot alltogether for her sanity. I think that’s another reason why the boys don’t want to visit him, he prob talked badly about her around the house. His mouth prob got reckless and the boys know their Mom is better than that, much better. She’s a wonder as Maddox put it.

    • Sidewithkids says:

      @cora and bap, I have to agree w/ bap here Cora. Angelina is actually more popular here and aboard. This is why Brad didn’t leave her and why he’s upset now, he knows it. He needs her more than she needs him. He knows she is more popular. He became jealous of all her acclaim. She was moving beyond him and he realized it.

    • Jennifer says:

      Yes it helps because I have a hard time letting false accusations hang in the air and feel compelled to defend myself, which I think Angelina has no problem with because she’s dealt with that in the worldwide press for decades. So instead of defending myself against lies (a fight is exactly what he wants anyway), I just turn it around and laugh about how absurd he is.

      And yes I can believe a man like Brad wouldn’t be able to hold his tongue around his kids. I’m going through the same thing. Once you stop engaging, they resort to bashing to provoke a reaction. And they do not care how it hurts the kids, as long as the target hears about their trash talk and reacts to it, they’d rather have negative attention than no attention. If he can’t stop the public messiness, imagine what he’d say to the kids with nobody else around!

  25. Sparkly says:

    The worst part is that it seems to be working. I can’t even read the comments on several sites because there’s so much misogyny and villainess bashing. It seems so obvious that he’s the one putting out every negative story. Those are not the actions of someone who’s only thinking of the kids.

    • .... says:

      Remember lots of pr posters there…..fake multiple names etc….. do you know anyone who would take their time to defend him? I don’t. Those people ….a lot of them…..are on the payroll.

  26. detritus says:

    Last time he had a big break up he skated by completely clean. The media focussed on Angie and Jen, and let his cheating ass slide.
    He had every expectation he’d be the same golden boy, with the same golden treatment, and he’s not ‘winning’ like he thought he would.
    This whole thing has completely soured me on him, but I am enjoying the Stepford Brad header photos.

  27. Aud says:

    “In the face” is pretty specific, isn’t it?

    Also, physical violence to objects is abusive. It’s intended to incite fear, a kind of “this is your face,” threat. If you read research about physical abuse, physical violence to objects is stage one.

    • Sidewithkids says:

      He looks more pathetic by each passing day. That’s what I don’t understand, why is he blaming Angie for is foolishness. More people have taken notice of it too. Angie is just living her life w/ her kids while he looks like the spoiled ex who can’t control himself enough to be a real father to those kids.

      Also, Angie isn’t JA. JA fed off of the (unreal) tabloid rivalry. It helped JA’s career last longer. Angie doesn’t need him or anybody to do that for her. She is her own entity/brand. She’s sitting back just laughing at this clown.

    • Jennifer says:

      I was going to point out the same thing @Aud! It IS violence, it is meant to invoke fear in the victim and show them “don’t mess with me or you’re next.” And also, children exposed to domestic violence can be just as traumatized as children that endured the violence themselves. The abuser doesn’t need to abuse the children directly in order to inflict significant trauma.

    • Ang says:

      Exactly. My ex used to break things: my car windshield (4 times), walls, my clothes, along with his physical abuse of me. It’s a pattern of abuse and I think Brad fits this well.

  28. Darla says:

    Welp, this is why I’ve always said I like both AJ AND Jen. I always blame the man. It’s served me well. Exception that proves the rule: Ms. Asia Argento.

    • Aud says:

      Good policy. I took it a step further and married a woman. That was the best decision ever. Highly recommend it. 👍👍

  29. Fluffy Princess says:

    Is it me or are we veering into Thomas Markle territory?

  30. Hmmm says:

    He is coming off as unhinged jealous ex who can’t let go. Work on the relationship with their kids and let Angie go, creepy fool. Does he not have any family or real friends left to tell him how psychotic he looks right now?

    The kids private info was leaked and he had nothing to say about that because it once again was geared to make Angelina look bad. But when she hits him harder with facts he’s now sickened. He truly is insane.

    • .... says:

      Especially when you consider he’s the one doing all the leaking….then acting sickened by it.

      It’s like the guy who kills his family, but goes on and on about their safe return. Sick

  31. Endoplasmic_ridiculum says:

    Honestly, regardless of whatever happened ON that plane, what self respecting Mom wouldn’t have divorced their hubby the minute one of the kids looked out the window and went “Mooom, Dad’s stolen the fuel truck and is making for the terminal.”

    • .... says:

      After allegedly pissing on the tarmac too….

    • Wasabi says:

      But you don’t understand, Pitt is a beautiful sensitive flower!!!! It’s not his fault that the fuel truck was there! He simply needed to flee the harsh world – crystalline unicorn tears running down his face… leaving tiny immaculate puddles on the ground… You. Just. Don’t. Understand!!!!!!

    • Henny says:

      There were so many things about that incident that made me go WTF, but that he took a fuel truck suggested he was completely out of control and for a significant amount of time. An argument between adults can be tricky because of the subjective nature of each experience but causing an incident, damaging a plane (even if minor) and stealing a truck is someone who has completely lost it. It must have been terrifying.

  32. KB says:

    Lol okay I am an admitted Brad fan, and I like Angelina too (though I don’t think she’s as saintly as so many here seem to think), but this angle that he’s taking is so ridiculous and misguided. I don’t think he was behind the Amal stories and nonsense like that, but he has had his people give quotes to multiple outlets for several weeks. They are both making this thing public, they are both putting their version of the story out there, so how is he sickened by her relatively benign leak about the interim agreement?

    For him to claim that she is the one being combative, he needs to not launch these aggressive attacks against her when she leaks such harmless quotes. I don’t understand what about her statement was so offensive to him that he felt the need to say he was “sickened.” His response is out of proportion to the quote from her side, and HE is the one that looks combative here. It’s off putting.

    • Hmmm says:

      If anything Brad Pitt fans are the ones who think HE is the Saint. I only know of one fan who thinks Angie is a saint. She’s a sweet naive fan but most became fans because she was weird and completely different than most of the celebrities that try to appear perfect with help from CAA and publicists. The only time she was pretending to be perfect was when she got with the creep – after that she became stepford wife and everything was wonderful and perfect. She stopped that during the by the sea interviews and even mentioned that divorce wasn’t out of the question. She had one foot out and was obviously done pretending.

      Angelina has only defended herself and her kids against Brad’s non stop attacks. He wants her to just take the beating. He is abusing his family all over again with the help of the press and his massive Pr team.

    • Sidewithkids says:

      @KB, I like that you can see this objectively. Most Brad fans I’ve noticed are a lil cray. I was a huge Brad fan but a bigger Angie fan. When they got together, I was over the moon excited. I actually predicted it. Lol. I am one of the people who truly believes they fell in love and were happy for awhile too.

      But for the last three years, even before they broke up, I noticed some odd behavior from Brad, the fact I always questioned why he never stood up for her in the press and Angie’s weight loss made me really concerned for her. Then the plane incident happened and for two years this dude has really been a total prick. That’s the only way I can describe it. Now, don’t get me wrong, Angie’s not a saint as you put it but Angie’s not pulling di— moves just to pull them. Like, I’m now disgusted w/ myself b/c I thought this guy was a real upstanding dude. All that is shattered. He is not.

      • KB says:

        I never expected him to stand up for AJ in the press after the separation, but his body language when they were together definitely made it seem like he felt like “captain of the ship” so to speak. Holding her arm rather than her hand, physically directing her, etc.

        I don’t think that it was necessarily unappreciated initially. It was probably kind of hot. But once they had kids and he continued thinking he was the leader and he was the disciplinarian, I think the mama bear in Angelina was awakened.

        Obviously alcohol and other stuff contributed and led to the combustion, but I think a lot of the resentment stemmed from their completely incompatible ideas of marriage and parenting. I think Brad is more rigid and felt like he had to maintain order and Angelina felt like “who needs order?” And although I’m a Brad fan, I side with Angelina on that particular assumption I’ve made about their relationship lol.

    Angelina will be the first to tell you she has flaws. I believe Angelina has good heart and is Not a phony. Angelina knows who she is and she has always put her children first.

    A so called man nearing 55 years old in a few months is constantly smearing his wife because his Image is the only thing that matters to him. He does not even know who he is as a person.

    He is a souless person.

    • Hmmm says:

      His fans defend him by saying “he doesn’t know himself.” Or “he doesn’t know who he is.” At that age he’s never gonna find out. That’s what we call a loser in the real world.

      • .... says:

        Oh he knows exactly who he is….he thinks he’s doing us all a favor….problem is, that isn’t true. He’ll never think anything otherwise.

      • Sidewithkids says:

        It’s the same feeling I have towards Justin Timberlake (when he allowed Janet Jackson to take the brunt of the wardrobe malfunction). I choke it up to white male privilege and misogyny in America. Then they both have the gall to be angry when people call them on their bs. I can’t believe these two. They’re more like a chumps to me now.

      • Sidewithkids says:

        @Hmmm, that’s the thing, Angie is different, weird, strange, whatever you want to call it. People think they bother her when she’s called these things but she’s not. There’s no such thing as normal and she knows that. She says so. But she also knows HW and what a cesspool it is and how it tries to change people into immoral robots. That’s why she doesn’t want to be in LA. Brad fits the mold there. She doesn’t and she doesn’t want her kids to either.

      • Carmen says:

        Do his fans realize how pathetic that sounds? A 55 year old man who “doesn’t know himself yet”? They make him sound as if emotionally he is stuck at seventeen.

      • KB says:

        I think writing him off as a “loser” is completely premature. The man found an incredible, intelligent, and philanthropic woman and had six children with her. They managed to stay together for 12 years, and I think most of them were happy. He obviously gets lost in his partners and he has struggled with alcohol.

        He’s not a lost cause though. No one is a lost cause. You can always turn your life around. He was good enough to snag and hang on to Angelina Jolie for over a decade, he can’t be that bad.

      • .... says:

        Kb……he is that bad…..to blame his bad behavior on alcohol ….. and say he must be ok because his ex was great…….is exactly the problem.

        He’s got problems, and alcohol is not the cause of them. It certainly doesn’t help….but you know. And we must stop with this ” well…he’s dating her, so he must be great ” narrative. That’s how he climbed the ladder of success in the first place. Latching onto and using women’s likenesses. Recent example….that poor woman w the boyfriend who Brad lied and said he was dating…when he wasn’t.

        He is a huge loser….his behavior the past two years is arrogant smug and no one will ever forget. This is brads new identity. His legacy…….abuser, egomaniac, shallow, negligent.

      • .... says:

        Kb…..also he wasn’t good enough to snag Angelina……..there was nothing good about him….he was a married man committing adultery. Then he threw his freshly cheated on wife under the bus……for over a decade.

  34. Racer1 says:

    Zahara should seek hair care advice at an ethnic salon. She’s been wearing the same hairstyle since she was a baby and her hairline is suffering.

    Brad and Angie have both proven themselves to be nothing since they seek to resolve issues in the two lowest forms of hell; the courts and the media.

    • norah says:

      why make comments about zahara at all? it has nothing to do with you

      • Racer1 says:

        You are absolutely correct norah.

      • Sidewithkids says:

        Racer1 is right about Zahara’s hair tho. I mentioned this before. The more she ties her hair up, the hairline goes further back. They need to take action now and yes, they should ask a black woman/shop who knows about black hair or Zahara will be bald before she’s 18. Then everyone will rail on Angie about it. It will give more fuel for the fire.

        It’s alright Angie is a white woman and she doesn’t know much about it so it’s fine to ask for help. I’m sure they see it, Zahara especially, so yeah, Angie needs to get on this, why they haven’t done anything about is beyond me.

    • Coco says:

      I don’t agree about the pony tail because at some points of her young life she has had natural fro, braids, a blowout with extensions and the ponytail which many black girls wore and have worn for year before becoming a teen and trying to their styles.
      Braids would be worse for her edges. A natiural look would be good and maybe she will get her s black stylist when she feels she is ready to go that route. She is already into makeup. Z he naturally curly hair so that in itself is challenging.
      Give her some credit at least she pays attention to her daughters needs and wants.

      • arianan says:

        Angie’s go-to hair stylist is black, he would know if Zahara’s hair was being damaged or not.

    • KLJ says:

      Zahara has a long forehead. This can be see in photos taken at an angle or where she’s side profile. Her hairline is not receding, she is not going bald. Her hairline just sits far back. It’s not changing and has nothing to do with ponytails. What a bunch of nonsense.

  35. Vox says:

    I hate how he never shouldered any blame for the break up with Jennifer. The media said awful things about her and not once did he step in to defend her or say ‘mea culpa’. Angelina was painted as a disgusting homewrecking harlot even though they all maintain that they didn’t hook up until Brad ended things, and even if they did hook up before the only one breaking their vows was Brad.

    He never spoke up for Angelina, either. I thought at the time he and Angelina weren’t interested in acknowledging gossip and conjecture but no, he clearly gives all the f**ks about his image and it was obviously Angie who shut that down for the length of their relationship.

    The kids are obviously really happy when they’re with her. The fact that the eldest two won’t have anything to do with him speaks volumes. He must have really done something vile.

    I’m glad that there’s at least one space online where people don’t paint Angelina as some scheming, conniving homewrecker who wants nothing more than to become British aristocracy. I like D-Listed but I can’t read their comments sections when it comes to anything relating to the trinity.

    • .... says:

      speaking of not shouldering blame……wonder how his make it right foundation lawsuit is going. He’s such a conman.

    • .... says:

      You see how the media is just really brads pr ppls mouthpiece now………. and how they work in conjunction w “sources”….ahem. And certain outlets seem like they are on the pr payroll….always. Well…I’m sure that was true then as well…including and especially the Jen bashing.

    • arianan says:

      @Vox: Sorry, I can’t muster up crocodile tears for Aniston, not after what she did to try and destroy Angie, also how she and Handler talked about the JP children and Angie. Aniston is not exactly a “sweetheart”.

  36. bap says:

    Today the drive by tabloid lying media is back smearing Angelina. He and his handlers want to now smear her Humanitarian work. He is such a lowlife.

    • .... says:

      So clearly the custody evaluators didn’t recommend something in his favor…(although he apparently agreed to it, because they now don’t have to have that hearing. )

      And after she released a neutral statement saying that…..his ppl came out with “oh it’s just getting started”. Another nice public threat to the kids and ex.

      And now more today? From him? Seems he’s not happy. Seems things didn’t go his way. Doesn’t seem the custody evaluators are recommending visitation honestly. Who can blame them.
      We definitely don’t force kids to be with their long term abusers.

      • Carmen says:

        Actually, that statement “we’re just getting started” was issued almost two weeks before hearing was cancelled.

        At this point, Brad is just throwing handfuls of sh*t at the walls hoping something will stick.

    • .... says:

      Oh my…..just saw that pg s!x article. Lol

      Whew someone’s doin a lil drinkin … and doin a little writin. And he’s prob all c0ked up. That gets out of your system quickly.

      He’s clearly got nothing to lose …because they just literally called her an a s hole. So yeah…I think they recommended no visitation….and it’s over.

      He’s lost his d@mn mind.

      • bap says:

        @says It is going to be really telling if he is Not seen in public with any of the children in the next four months.

      • Sidewithkids says:

        Angie needs to say something now, he’s doing too much. Where’s that new lawyer? God Bless Angie, she seems not to get into his pettiness b/c she knows herself but he is now going after the work she truly treasures. I would stop these lame visits and get my kids, if I was Angie. He doesn’t deserve them and they don’t need him.

        This Page Six article is bs but you know it’s coming from him b/c he disliked those two British women that are her friends. Brad is a fu— a— to go after the mother of his kids this way. Plus, his supporters/stans should be ashamed of themselves as well. SMH.

      • .... says:

        When a man hates his ex this much…it’s not safe to send kids around him. Not that I think they are going…

        I’d be getting a restraining and gag order at this point. I’d sue if he uttered my name in public.

      • Carmen says:

        Best if Angie says nothing. Just keep her head up, go on about her business as if he doesn’t exist, and give him enough rope to hang himself with.

      • arianan says:

        Page Sux is still trying to pass the $8 million LOAN off as “child support”.

  37. Slacker says:

    Eh he’s a successful white dude which equals privilege here. I’m sure he believes his own bullsh*t

    • Sidewithkids says:

      Lol, @Carmen you may be right, you know he loves photos so he prob sees Angie just having a good time w/ her kids and he gets jealous. He loves a good photo op, so he wants to do that so badly b/c that’s all he’s mad about, people thinking his kids hate him. I don’t think they hate him (well maybe the boys, lol), but I don’t think they want to be w/ him like they do their mother.

      But yeah, I may clap back b/c he’s talking about her humanitarian work and that’s just the low of the lowest thing to do b/c Angie treasures that/helping people. But yeah, Angie’s such a nice person/that’s the thing that makes me angry, people think she’s mean and I believe she is prob one of the sweetest people you can meet. I think she’s serious and smart but that’s what her haters hold against her. Strange. Seems like something you would applaud not hate. She will protect you to the end if you are a friend and/or kid and/or lover (esp, if you are her lover/her family).

  38. Hmmm says:

    Thank you to the poster named ….

    lol

    He’s a f^^^king loser.

    • Sidewithkids says:

      LOL @HMMM
      He’s a fu— loser.
      He’s a sorry excuse for a man.
      He will lose in the end.
      Angie should be happy to be rid of him.
      Go Angie, get the love of your life. Be happy.

  39. Kat says:

    I’m not sure why anyone would be surprised by Pitt’s unsavory character. What else would you expect from a guy who had an affair with a co-worker, strung his wife along for months under the pretense of a reconciliation before leaving her for the co-worker, and publicly humiliated said wife by doing a huge pictorial in a major magazine wherein he and his mistress posed as a 1960s suburban married couple (the infamous Steven Klein spread for W Magazine). You expected THAT GUY to treat a woman respectfully during this divorce???

    • arianan says:

      @Kat: I agree with everything that’s being said about Pitt, he’s beyond disgusting, but let’s get real and not try and make Jennifer Aniston into some sort of special Unicorn, the woman was devious and beyond cruel when it came to trashing Angie and the children. Strange thing, Aniston never said a bad word about pathetic Pitt, only attacked Angie.

  40. bap says:

    He is jealous that Angelina’s children prefer to be with her and that they truly love their mother.

    He is an egomaniac that does not defend his family. Stop smearing their mother and pay your child support.

    • Hmmm says:

      I’m starting to wonder if Angie is dating and he knows it. He’s trying to ruin potential love matches. Either way he looks completely insane.

      The craziest is having his team float that Angie still loves him and can’t let him go. Lmao that’s why she filed for divorce and is now asking to speed it up.

  41. Sidewithkids says:

    Why is Shiloh by herself today and yesterday, w/ just a bodyguard? Now, I have a feeling she’s suppose to be w/ Brad and out here alone. They have photos of Angie w/ Zahara and Viv at a BBQ spot so if Shiloh is w/ him why is she not w/ him? Dude doesn’t wont to parent, he doesn’t know what he’s doing. I wouldn’t be surprised if we see news of a 911 call whilst w/ Brad. SMH.

    • .... says:

      She might be out w a brother who doesn’t want to be in the photograph. I doubt there is visitation.

    • KLJ says:

      Shiloh has been getting papped by herself for a few years now, so has Pax and Maddox. So, it’s never a case of her supposing to be with Brad and I also doubt there was a visitation. (I tend to think visitation with him is usually done at his house and they don’t really go out.) Zahara is very seldomly papped by herself. She, Vivienne, and Knox are usually papped in a sibling combo.

  42. misa says:

    Aniston (yes, her, please let me write her name….) said it well: he misses the sensitivity chip. aka he’s an egocentric, entitled man. Charming, talented, even good-hearted: but lacking empathy. And now, the fact that it was Angelina breaking up with him, thus wounding his pride, adds salt to the wound, because he can’t play the role of the romantic hero. He has tried, wth the MIT professor, but failed (she has a partner, thank you very much). So now he’s resorting to trying to simultaneously play the victim and the hero, the harsh critic and the supportive ex-partner; and to cover up the financial issues by being the generous giver (but in his terms, of course).
    I hope Angelina is well, and that her health doesn’t fail her in these psychologically tiring times.

    • Hmmm says:

      It’s worse. He’s a narcissist and can’t fathom people disliking him. Notice he doesn’t get negative media attention and on the rare occasion he does he releases a statement to change the narrative.

      People love to claim AJ is a narcissist but look at all the hate she gets without responding. She obviously doesn’t feel the need to be loved like her insane ex.

      Also I’ve read so many comments from men and women saying Women are crazy but look at Brad’s behavior and tell me he’s sane. Most of the crazy stories I’ve been reading have been about crazy af men who don’t get there way and act out. Not to excuse the women who are crazy exes but some men are equally as crazy or worse. I think Brad falls in the crazy ex category.

    • stingingnettle says:

      Aniston is missing one too (ref Justin and Heidi) so she is the last one to talk about sensitivity chips.

  43. Keaton says:

    It always annoyed me that Brad skated during the infamous triangle while both Angie and Aniston were torn apart. Recall that Angie was painted as a heartless homewrecker and Jen as that plain girl who wasn’t hot enough for Brad Pitt and who denied him his precious babies. I can see the homewrecker label arising organically because it’s a pretty classic misogynistic trope. But not the “Jen won’t give Brad his babies” storyline. I am convinced now that Brad’s PR people were behind that. He’s clearly a very image conscious man. I think one reason he’s so angry now is because he feels he’s been exposed. It may also bug him that Angie isn’t as rattled by his PR attacks as he would be if the shoe were on the proverbial other foot. I guess that’s one advantage of starting out as the “weirdo girl” and weathering the homewrecker label: You’re used to shrugging off bad PR. Brad is used to being the golden boy. This is new territory for him. As someone else said above, at this point he may actually BELIEVE his own bullsh*t.

  44. Hmmm says:

    Zahara simply has a high forehead. No amount of hair care is going to make her forehead lower. Stop.

  45. Yibis says:

    Off topic: Did anyone else see that Shiloh is wearing pink nail polish? I find that endearing that she has a such strong sense of her own style.

  46. truth says:

    So there is censure here..nice..
