Page Six ran a huge smear job on Angelina Jolie, gee, that’s so weird

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

On Twitter, I said this Page Six article was possibly the nastiest, most pathetic smear job I’ve ever seen. I’ve been going through the memory banks to see if I can remember any public split or divorce ever getting this disgusting, and all I can come up with is Johnny Depp-Amber Heard (which was SO bad) and Halle Berry-Gabriel Aubry. At its worst, the Berry-Aubry split (and the years of nastiness that followed) was on par with the Brangelina split. For various reasons, I feel like Brangelina has just gotten a million times nastier though. On Saturday, Page Six published a shocking (or unshocking) one-sided smear on Angelina. It’s a brazen hit piece sourced from Brad Pitt’s team and they are spewing vitriol at her at every level, from her mothering skills to her charity work to calling her a lying a–hole and more. You can read Brad’s Burn Book here, in a piece called “Angelina Jolie is no longer the Saint She Set Out To Be”. Some highlights:

Page Six says “St. Angie’s halo has well and truly slipped”: A “family source” claims, “It doesn’t matter how much charity work you do. If you drive a wedge between a father and his children, you’re an a–hole.”

Angelina is so mad that Brad isn’t chasing her: “She doesn’t want Brad to move on,” said the family source. “She’s furious that he’s not chasing after her — and [that fury is] now ruining her image.”

This “family source” has some stuff to say about the plane incident: “She filed for divorce out of the blue, then people connected to her floated information to the media that [Pitt] had punched one of their kids on a flight in a drunken, high rage… Angelina kicked the s–t out of Brad at the beginning. Then she tried to make other threats and said he was going to be ­arrested. She really started a whispering campaign against Brad that was ­demonstrably false.”

Angelina asking for child support was something: “Angelina believed the only way to win was to go in for the kill. She went on the attack,” the family source said. “Essentially, Angelina’s calling Brad a deadbeat dad, when he pays for the kids’ security, hotels and private jets. All he wants is to see his kids.”

The interim custody agreement: “There was no new agreement. This was totally made up,” the source said. “The biggest joke is that she continues to be awful toward him. Angie has these wild mood swings. She [had] launched this aggressive tone, which backfired, saying she’s poor when she’s making $25 million a movie, and saying Brad’s not paid child support. This week, she came back all mellow and super nice — it’s a direct reaction to the fact that people did not react well to her [previous] blow.”

Brad is the real saint, according to this source: “He’s not having the best time, but he’s hanging in there. He’s hopeful this will all be resolved. They talk some, but [not] very much. Once you go down this road, and s–t gets flung about, then it’s very difficult.”

[From Page Six]

There’s a ton of other stuff, about how she “bullied” him and basically believed her own “saint” hype and of course there’s tons of sh-t about how she’s “alienated” the kids. What the f–k is wrong with Brad? Or do I have the wrong end of it? The worst quotes are from a “family source” and now I’m wondering if someone in Brad’s family is out here, doing the dirty work. His brother, maybe? Would his parents get involved? I’m probably overthinking it – Occam’s razor, the simplest explanation is likely the right explanation. Brad is using Page Six and TMZ to constantly smear and shame his ex, the mother of his children, all because she had the audacity to leave him. Because she chose their children instead of him.

    up until this point I thought he had behaved worse, but they had both behaved poorly. They both sniped at each other in the press and shared things that probably should not have been shared. This is fucking ridiculous. I really can’t understand what it is he’s trying to gain by doing this. It looks bad both publicly and in a custody fight. he’s an idiot and she is so much better for those kids.

    • Gaby says:

      I know that we all have different opinions, but I disagree when people say Angelina is behaving so poorly. I just see it as someone REALLY pissed.
      I think that she is pissed about his drinking, about the fact that it has saddened and traumatized all of her kids, that he left the plane in a drunken rage, but especially angry that he hit Maddox, and then after tried to spin it in the press like it was just a kind of argument fathers have with their “teenaged” son, as in Maddox was the one at fault. He tried to diminish the harm he causes by blaming it on others, including Maddox and Angelina, and continuously play the poor loving father who misses his children. As a mother, I would be seeing red as well.
      Even parent alianation as people are calling it, I just think she is trying to protect her kids from whatever manipulation Brad is trying to do to them, and mess them up even more. Maybe she is going about it the wrong way, but I don’t think she is trying to cut him out of their lives. I mean, if he is like this, just imagine what he tries to feed to the kids to make him want to see him again.

      • Rapunzel says:

        I think he said something really bad like he didn’t want the kids. That’s enough to make a mom go nuclear.

      • Alissa says:

        honestly though, as completely understandable her anger is, if the actual goal of the parents was co-parenting, operating from a place of anger is kind of behaving poorly.

        although honestly after this she can do whatever she likes.

      • annie says:

        Ugh. He’s such a loser. She’s so much better for those kids.

      • vanna says:

        @gaby agree!! I don’t see her as unreasonable, I would burn his fucking world down had he hit my kids. Honestly I think she is showing restraint and where on earth has she smeared him and told any details that aren’t true? He was drunk on the plane, and “had a physical altercation” with Maddox. He still has supervised visits and some of the kids don’t even want to see him anymore. All true facts?! And she shouldered most of the kids costs over the last 2 years. She is damn well entitelt to child support and fighting her on that makes him seem like a stingy, vengeful deadbeat.

      • Amanduh says:

        Can you say, with 100% certainty, that he hit Maddox?

    • .... says:

      It seems very one sided to me.

  2. Belle Epoch says:

    So much easier to blame her and seek sympathy than to take responsibility for what happened. Angelina appears to be doing OK – is Brad just mad that she did not collapse without him?

    • Char says:

      While Brad is out there trying to shame her, Angelina is constantly seen with her kids, living her life. Imagine if she really gets nasty and decides to dish?

    • Carmen says:

      Probably. He’s behaving like a jealous spiteful spoiled brat who’s used to getting his way all the time and is throwing a hissy-fit now that he can’t have it.

  3. Gaby says:

    Brad is really spiraling, isn’t he?

    This is the first time his image has faltered ever. The way his marriage ended with Aniston, the architectural “projects”, every other problem he had, he was able to spin in his favor. Everything was other people’s fault.

    Now there’s no way around the fact that he drunkenly hit the son defending mom, lost his wife, custody, and probably the relationship he had with Maddox, now he is losing the P.R. game as well. No matter how much money or fame he has, the simple fact is that an actual judge didn’t see fit to give him shared unsupervised custody of his 5 other kids in two years. No matter what Angelina say or do, she couldn’t have temporarily sole physical custody if the COURT SYSTEM didn’t think was safer for the kids. She would have to obey any judge order.

    • Lilly says:

      Yes. So shady and icky. All at the expense of the children and relying on her values to protect them and not contradict things where I’m certain she has the receipts.

  4. Mariposa says:

    She is angry at him because he’s not chasing her? Pu-lease. I’d believe the parental alienation part, but I don’t buy for a second that she ever wants to lay eyes on him again. I don’t understand his tactics though…why come out with this crazy vitriol now?

    • Lady D says:

      Maybe something happened in court last week that he is afraid will come out? He’s trying to get ahead of bad publicity by putting the focus on her. I wonder if he lost custody, but apparently they came to an agreement that negated the court date, so why this now?

      • KB says:

        Wouldn’t that just encourage her to leak whatever bad thing happened? They supposedly just extended the four hours every other day, 12 hours on the weekend agreement, so I can’t imagine what wouldn’t have gone his way.

        I think it’s more likely he’s just frustrated he hasn’t been granted joint custody yet and he’s stuck with the four and twelve hour visits. Her leak to ET last week implied an evaluator encouraged their interim agreement, so maybe the evaluator said the kids need more time to adjust before he’s granted 50/50 and now he’s lashing out.

    • Millenial says:

      Yeah, that part made me LOL. Angelina could still pretty much pull any man she wanted, she’s just choosing to focus on motherhood at the moment. Pretty sure she’d rather lay on a bed of hot coals than go back to Brad.

    • jammypants says:

      I think it’s the other way around. Brad is pissed AS HELL shes not chasing him.

    • Carmen says:

      For the life of me I cannot understand what Brad hopes to gain by this smear campaign.

      He can’t possibly think the judge is going to consider him the better parent behind this, or that this is going to make the kids want to live with him. This is more like an angry, petulant child flailing out in all directions, hoping a blow will connect. The timing of all this is especially telling, coming right after the cancelled court hearing.

      I think Brad is starting to realize the children are lost to him, at least emotionally, and I really don’t think he cares any more. He doesn’t give a damn about the kids or their needs or their feelings. His own needs are all he’s concerned with, and at this point his sole need is to do as much damage as he possibly can to their mother. He needs to punish her not only for leaving him, but also for being happy and content without him.

      Every time I think he’s hit rock bottom and can’t sink any lower, he takes a shovel and starts to dig. It’s like watching someone disintegrate before your eyes.

  5. SM says:

    So much talk about the undying love and soulmates and then this. He is out of his freaking mind. It’s probably his reaction to the fact that his own kids do not want to see him/that their relationship is changed. He is punishing her without realizing this will only cause even more problems in his relationship with the kids.

    • Linda says:

      So essentially Brad Pitt is doing to Angie the same thing he did to his ex wife Jennifer Anniston.

      • arianan says:

        @Linda: I can’t agree with your assessment of the Pitt and Aniston divorce and this debacle. Brad never publicly went after JA, it was JA who went after Angie, by using her friends as mouthpieces. At least with JA there were no children to be hurt.

      • Carmen says:

        No, that was a totally different scenario. He dumped Aniston. He had no need to punish her. He just wanted her out of his life so he could move Angie in. But Angie dumped him and hurt his pride. He wants revenge any way he can get it.

      • Nikki says:

        Linda may be a bit right. Brad cheated on Aniston, but somehow made it seem like she was a party girl unwilling to have kids with him, while he (poor thing) YEARNED to be a father. He didn’t even admit cheating until Angie let it out of the bag, saying they feel in love on the set of Mr. and Mrs. Smith. He just totally and completely is a turn-off loser to me now.

      • KLJ says:

        Jennifer and her friends admitted in that pity party Vanity Affair article that Brad told her up front that he had feelings for Angie. Their marriage was basically done and there’s never been any proof that Brad nor Angelina indulged in a physical relationship. I do think he was a douche for not sticking up for Angie though.

        When Brad finally pulled the plug, he told Aniston that he wanted to go find himself. She wanted them to stay a couple while he did that and for him to come back. He didn’t want to do that. I think she was in shock that he actually left her. Cheat and come back, I think she’d have been okay with that but straight up leave. No.

        Aniston may have been astute in her observation of Brad missing a sensitivity chip but that aside I think the same way Brad can’t believe that Angelina left him now, is the same way that Aniston couldn’t believe that Brad had actually left her. Two of a kind in that regard.

      • Jeanette Rushing says:

        At KLJ we must have read different articles..I dont think she came off as pity party at all. She was just trying to address something really personal and seemed sincere, but managing like most of us would be if we suspected or found out our husband was a cheating rat. From the VF article:

        When the Pitts split up, Brad insisted he hadn’t slept with Jolie, and Aniston accepted his denial. “She wasn’t naïve,” says Kristin Hahn, an executive at the Pitts’ production company, Plan B. “She’s not suggesting she didn’t know there was an enchantment, and a friendship. But Brad was saying, ‘This is not about another woman.’”

        The moment he and Aniston separated, however, he re-emerged in what looked like a full-blown affair with Jolie. Struggling to accept a separation she never wanted, Aniston found that the “facts” she had been told kept shifting like quicksand beneath her feet. When I ask about that gracious, no-one-is-to-blame announcement of their separation, she takes a deep breath. “What we said was true—”

        As I raise my eyebrows, she pauses for a moment, and then adds carefully, “—as far as I knew. We wrote it together, very consciously, and felt very good about it. We exited this relationship as beautifully as we entered it.”

        All Aniston wanted then was to figure out what happened; how did the happy life they’d planned drift so far off course? But everything changed on April 29, when photographs broke of Brad and Angelina frolicking on the beach with Maddox at a romantic resort in Africa. “The world was shocked, and I was shocked,” she says, still bending over backward not to excoriate her ex.

  6. SilverUnicorn says:

    I didn’t think I was ever going to say this but he is sooooo cancelled for me. I was one of his fans for years and cannot stand to see his smug face now.

    Even if (and huge ‘even if’) everything he said about Angelina Jolie through his sources was true, one just doesn’t smear the mother of his children like this (we could make a Sean Bean/Boromir meme here).
    Shame on you Brad Pitt!!

  7. Jane says:

    Men like brad Pitt are truly evil.

    Going after the mother of children so publicly when all the kids have access to the internet is horrible.

    • Boxy Lady says:

      I’m still betting that one of those kids is going to go public one day and I have a feeling it won’t be in Brad’s favor. Then what will Brad do? Call his kid a liar? I doubt that these kinds of attacks are going to work out for him in the long run.

      • CommentingBunny says:

        He will do exactly what he’s doing now – blame Angelina for “alienating” the kids. He’ll profess sadness that his child was brainwashed by his or her Evil Mom, and millions will lap it up because handsome white men will always be ok.

      • Maya says:

        Bingo he will blame Angelina and the children and people will lap it up.

      • Boxy Lady says:

        Ugh. You may be right Commentingbunny. Then again, it may depend on what kid comes forward and when.

    • .... says:

      Google narcissistic rage and read through the sites for wives and exs of these guys.
      His behavior has been sending up red flags for me for years……..hes just another narc.

  8. Maya says:

    Brad’s PR guy is Matt Hiltzik, the man is also representing Trump & Harvey Weinstein.

    This man is notorious for supporting abusive men and smearing the women in the media.

    I think all Brad supporters can now shut up and sit down because they have no leg to stand on anymore.

    Evidence of Brad’s pathetic pr games have been provided and I hope to god, Angelina provided the evidence to the judge.

    Kelly Rutherford lost custody because she smeared her ex in the media. Hopefully Brad will lose the custody or atleast be punished for his horrendous games.

    • Wasabi says:

      No wonder team B sounds like a bloody child midst of a temper tantrum. In Germany we have an expression for situations like this: Mit Kanonen auf Spatzen schießen – Shoot Canon at sparrows. He’s so overreacting… Ugh… It’s the first time someone actually said “no” to him, is it? He’s Brat Petty, indeed!

    • Ninks says:

      Gosh, remember the Kelly Rutherford saga. That seems like so long ago now, when the world was a much simpler place.

    • Pix says:

      Wow. this is an interesting nugget. the PR guy represents Weinstein and Trump? Now I know Brad has terrible judgement. You really can’t come back from this hit piece. His kids will read this and no, they won’t forget. Brad needs a media intervention.

    • Andrea1 says:

      Wow thanks Maya I never knew this… He is so disgusting and on per with his fellow deplorable men Harvey and Trump. How much lower can he go after this hit piece. I am so glad Angie isn’t even deigning to respond and that must hurt so bad! I bet he did this to get a reaction. Angie keep fighting the right way which is the court of law sooner rather than later Brad is going to fall in that pit he is so digging for himself! I’m so sorry but anyone who can see what Pitt is going, and still supporting him after this, needs an intervention so fast.

    • lucy2 says:

      I don’t think that’s true. That would be quite the gross client roster, so I looked him up – Matt Hiltzik used to work for Miramax but left in 2005. The only other connection I can find to Weinstein is that Weinstein called him as everything was falling apart to get his advice.
      As for Trump, the connection I see is that Hope Hicks and another guy worked for Hiltzik before joining the administration. I don’t see where Hiltzik is representing Trump.

      • arianan says:

        @lucy2: Sorry, but it IS true Matthew Hiltzik worked for both Trump and Weinstein, he was Weinstein’s flack for years at Miramax, enabling Weinstein to sexually harrass at will, while lying and covering up for him.

        I have the receipts, it’s too long to post here, but I’ll try.

        In an aside that’s tucked into the Oval Office pyrotechnics of Fire and Fury, Michael Wolff offers a glimpse into a representative back channel in the bipartisan Barter and Swap Exchanges of the Trump era: He points out that it was the flack Matthew Hiltzik, “an active Democrat who had worked for Hillary Clinton” and who “also represented Ivanka Trump’s fashion line,” who gave Trump’s prized aide Hope Hicks her start in public relations. Wolff also helpfully (and accurately) reports that Hiltzik had represented Harvey Weinstein, another major New York player in Democratic politics (and a Trump-wedding attendee), during those years when Hiltzik and his staff were expected to “protect him” from accusations of sexual harassment and abuse. Weinstein was further protected by his contributions to Democrats, led by those to the Clintons. Everyone in New York who had professional dealings with him knew he was a pig and a bully, much as they knew about Trump. But the parties, screenings, and star schmoozing were too much fun for Democratic politicians to resist. It’s because Weinstein had good reason to believe that his political donations and liberal bona fides would serve as a get-out-of-jail-free card for even criminal behavior that he released that bizarre statement vowing to turn his “full attention” to fighting the NRA after the Times and The New Yorker uncovered his history of sexual assaults.

        Wolff might have added that Hiltzik’s résumé featured stints as deputy executive director of the New York State Democratic Committee, as a consultant on Middle East issues for Kirsten Gillibrand and “Jewish outreach” for Clinton, and as a shill for Jared Kushner’s real-estate company. In December 2016, Hiltzik took on a month’s employment for David Pecker’s American Media Inc. at a time when its flagship, The National Enquirer, was dealing with the aftermath of its coverage (and suppression) of the alleged affair between Trump and the Playboy model Karen McDougal. Hiltzik is also a “longtime friend” of Bill de Blasio, according to the Washington Post, but what are conflicts of interest or politics among clients and friends in pursuit of power? The same strange bedfellows may be useful to de Blasio should he try to pursue Trump’s New York path to the White House.

      • lucy2 says:

        arianan, if you re-read my post, you’ll see that nothing conflicts with what you’ve posted, which is a lot more info than I was able to find, so thank you, but it still doesn’t support Maya’s initial statement that is he currently representing all 3 men. He’s had connections with Weinstein and Trump, for sure, but he is not their current PR representative.
        I don’t doubt he’s a sleazy guy though, a “crisis PR” person mixed up with those types, yuck.

    • serena says:

      Wow, another reason not to like Brad (like I needed one, with all he’s doing).

    • Felicia says:

      Rutherford lost custody because she:
      a) got her husband deported
      b) which resulted in the kids going to live with him in Monaco because he could no longer travel to the US
      c) which eventually changed their residency and court jurisdiction to Monaco
      d) attempted to keep them in the US rather than sending them back to their father.

      Smearing him or not (aside from the deportation thing, which backfired hugely on her) didn’t really have much bearing next to all of that.

      • Bread and Circuses says:

        Yeah, Kelly Rutherford lost custody because she–due to apparently out-of-control narcissism–did everything wrong.

        What Brad’s doing is despicable, but it’s legal. He’s not threatening to kidnap his kids, for example.

    • KB says:

      @Maya Matthew Hiltzik doesn’t rep Trump or Weinstein, where did you get that from?

      • arianan says:

        It IS ture, “KB”, there is proof.

      • Maya says:

        It was on Hollywood reporter.

      • KB says:

        lol I’m not sure why you put my name in quotations, I post here all the time and have been for years.

        He worked at Miramax almost fifteen years ago, and he repped Ivanka’s fashion line. Sorry, but that isn’t the same as being the PR rep for Donald Trump and Harvey Weinstein.

        He works in crisis PR, it’s not surprising to me that he has worked with and for creeps. Angelina’s crisis PR woman Judy Smith worked with the Bush admin when they nominated abuser/harasser Clarence Thomas for the Supreme Court and she worked for Michael Vick. That doesn’t say anything about Angelina.

      • arianan says:

        @KB: Sorry, I meant no disrespect by putting your name in parenthesis, it’s just I forgot to put @KB before starting to type.

    • Myrtle says:

      Mark Hitlizt?

    • Carrie says:

      Holy cow. Thanks for this. Case closed. Brad is truly a crap person.

  9. Adorable says:

    Meanwhile…She’s been spotted looking Fabulous & unbothered..Try Again Brad!

  10. Lucy2 says:

    I guess he only liked that “halo” when it worked to his benefit- shielding him from criticism for the way he dumped his first wife.

    Also, didn’t he admit to a substance-abuse problem and the altercation on the plane? Why is this “source“ trying to act like that didn’t happen? There was clearly a cause and effect here, the plane incident and her filing for divorce. They’re trying to twist the timeline.

    • Zapp Brannigan says:

      Truth is not true anymore, facts count for nothing, evidence is trolling. This is the world we now live in and look no further that the White House to see that this mass media gas lighting works.

    • roses says:

      I was wondering the same thing their making it seem like the plane incident never took place and she just decided to wake up one day and file for divorce completely out of no where. It’s like oh really, he just really needs to have a seat.

  11. CommentingBunny says:

    Abuse by proxy on a huge scale.

  12. Tanesha86 says:

    If anyone had any doubts before about just how lowdown and dirty Brad is this article should a make it crystal clear he’s the lowest of the low.

  13. Zapp Brannigan says:

    “then people connected to her floated information to the media that [Pitt] had punched one of their kids on a flight in a drunken, high rage…”

    So why did His people release a statement first saying that firstly:

    The source says Pitt did not hurt his son. “He is emphatic that it did not reach the level of physical abuse, that no one was physically harmed. He did not hit his child in the face in any way. He did not do that; he is emphatic about that. He put his hands on him, yes, because the confrontation was nose to nose and was spiraling out of control.” only to then amend that to then remove the part about going “nose to nose” presumably because some pr type thought the image of Pitt squaring off with his minor aged child was not a good look.

    The sad fact is that the general, not looking to closely, public will believe that AJ is a harpy and Pitt the poor working man hurt by her, separated from his kids (he is so loving, some of them are not even his and yet he cares for them!!) she took the dog, the house and his truck too, just like all the harlots that went before to take down a good man.

    • Felicia says:

      Just for the sake of argument, since they say that it was floated to the media… it could be as simple as someone having phoned his reps about it for a comment and Pitt attempting to get ahead of it.

      Which is not a comment on my behalf about how things went down on the plane. But I would think that for something like this, the media would have thought twice about publishing anything without contacting his people first. That would potentially be asking for a huge lawsuit.

      • Who ARE These People? says:

        He’s a public figure and the bar is low for what can be published about him. He also never threatened to sue over the stories that were published. Probably because he had no case.

        His choice of publicist is telling.

      • Lady D says:

        I wonder how much Brad’s mom loves her grandchildren? What would he do if a pro-Angie statement came from his mom?

      • Felicia says:

        I would think that publishing something like “Brad Pitt punched his son in the face in a drunken, stoned rage” without anything but “someone floated it” without a definitive source that you can actually talk to and verify with would be EXACTLY the sort of headline that the media would expect to bring out the lawyers.

        The guy may not be Tom Cruise in regards to lawsuits, but let’s not forget that they did sue NOTW (and won).

        So in response to the original question as to “why else”, and I’m not say that is actually why else, but it could be as much why as any other reason.

      • lucy2 says:

        Lady D that’s a good question. You’d think the grandparents would be wanting them to work together to have a good relationship still, but that doesn’t seem to be happening. I’m guessing Brad convinced them with some sob story? Who knows.

  14. Angie says:

    I gotta say that for the longest time i thought this site was crazy pro-Angie (although i love you guys!) I did not agree- i thought Ang would acting poorly as well as Brad. I still don’t think Ang is a saint in this but I am starting to see where you’re coming from and that the main bad actor here is Brad and she is reacting, not always well, to a difficult situation. There is too much mean stuff being said about her and it is not right.

    • Maya says:

      The worst is that they not only smear Angelina but the children as well.

      According to Brad and his supporters, a teenager deserves to be put in their place and if he hit Maddox, then that was just parental discipline.

      His children don’t want to see him because they are scared and/or uncomfortable around him. That’s a huge red sign which the judge seems to recognise because therapists have to be present for each session with Brad & children.

    • lucy2 says:

      I think in the beginning both were using the media in a bad way, but she seems to have stopped, where he has only gotten worse. But he seems to be a petulant child who is going to stamp his feet until he gets what he wants, because he’s always gotten away with it.

  15. Anastasia says:

    Brad’s just burning through every bit of goodwill American women once had for him.

    • lower-case deb says:

      just the goodwill of the women on this site.
      on any other site, it’s still Brad the Good Boy and Temptress Jolie bleeding widdle brad dry

      • Maya says:

        This is the #MeToo era and Brad will be exposed soon.

        He has pushed Angelina and her children soo much that I wont be surprised if the full details of the plane incident will come out soon.

      • Ides of March says:

        Sad but true! I’m speechless at the anger and hatred people have for Angie but think Brad’s perfect. It’s weird.

        And he lets this happen- just like he did to Jennifer. THAT’S why I hate him now.

      • arianan says:

        @Ides of March: COmparing this to Aniston is ridiculous. Aniston went after Angie (and the children) almost as bad as Brad is going after her. I have no sympathy for JA.

      • Keaton says:

        I agree @Ides of March. Pitt said nothing in defense of Aniston, just as he said nothing in defense of Angie. Hell, I bet Pitt and his PR purposefully fanned the flames of the “Poor Brad. Jennifer Aniston won’t give him his babies! ” storyline. What he’s doing now to Angie is 10X worse but his behavior then is quite revealing.
        Clearly he cares ALOT about his image and will ruthlessly protect it. We shouldn’t be too surprised that he’s going Full Trump now, i.e., guilty man attacking his “accuser” to sow doubt in the minds of the public. That’s what I think is going on.

    • Who ARE These People? says:

      I didn’t think he was all that and my interest in his work only kicked in when he was with Jolie – he seemed to grow as a character actor, the ‘piggy’ aspect of his features got more chiseled, and he seemed to be doing good works including as a producer. So he benefited from his association with her, clearly. That speaks better of her than of him.

  16. lower-case deb says:

    considering the language they use not just for Angie but for all women (remember “Sony hack–angie being beliggerent, disrespectful, but actually her emails are very… level and professional, although slightly insistent? as most professional people usually are maybe; or the classic Angry Women trope?)… i wouldn’t be surprised to find out that furious Angie is short hand for “Angie can’t take any more of your bs” and moodswing Angie is merely a sane person trying to find different ways to talk sense into someone (yes, there is no one way, and you try and try and find the sweet spot if any).

    though it seems to be working. Brad continues to be a heartthrob and Angelina is the one taking away the children from their rightful father.despite the fact that even when they were still married, Brad’s boatload of movies after movies after movies perhaps made him unavailable to the children anyway….

    • KB says:

      People called her Sony hack emails disrespectful? The emails she wrote or the emails written about her? She was really friendly in the emails she wrote. I can’t even imagine what in them would be construed as disrespectful.

  17. Pas says:

    “Out of the blue she filed for divorce”
    “He payed for security, private jets etc”

    Purely laughable.

    • Carmen says:

      He’s been whining ever since she left him that she totally blindsided him. He had no idea it was coming. I’d bet she handed him a dozen previous ultimatums that he brushed off and paid no attention to.

  18. Rianic says:

    This is my thought since the whole airplane showdown.

    Brad has always said he wanted daughters. His parents are fundamentalists. I believe he said something to Shiloh. I have no proof, but I can see it causing a huge blow out and cause a big brother to step up for both his mom and sister.

    • Who ARE These People? says:

      That’s all so highly speculative. As an alcoholic, he could have been spiraling down and saying nasty things about anything and everything to anyone and everyone.

      However, it’s interesting to consider his “issues” in the context of his upbringing. Or he may have always been an ambitious, highly self-regarding sot who used his looks and his charm as a lazy way to latch onto smart women on his way to the top.

  19. Jennifer says:

    He really needs to stop. How does he think the kids will react to these stories? He must know that it will only estrange him further, so this is all for his image. He’s got to prove to everybody (besides his own kids) that he’s really a good guy done wrong by a witchy woman. All he has to do is shut up and put in real effort and listen to the kids concerns and work on that, and he’d find that the custody will resolve (if he had been doing that from the beginning he’d probably already have what he wants). It makes it obvious that he refuses to take responsibility for his behavior and be willing to accept blame and work on his issues, otherwise his high priced team would have gotten him joint custody already. Instead, he seems satisfied to punish his ex and pay lip service to being a loving father in the press, while still neglecting the kids emotional well being.

  20. Lala11_7 says:

    Toxic Male Behavior has been the bane of human existence since the beginning of time….

  21. Coco says:

    Oh my Bradley wtf are you doing? This came out Saturday morning Angie responded by going out with a son that is supposed to be with him for lunch and shopping shoulderless dress and heels show lots of cleavage?! Sunday afternoon.
    She knows what makes him angry apparently things he can’t have.
    Whatever his team is doing that they feel is bothering her they should try a different tactic.

    • KLJ says:

      And looking happy and fabulous while doing so. Keep his many baby ass pressed! The best revenge is to always be happy and enjoy your life. Let the miserable be miserable by their own selves.

  22. Sage says:

    Damn! He straight up called Angelina a lying, emotional, manipulative bitch!

    What does he have against the two British women? His team has been slandering them from the beginning.

  23. Who ARE These People? says:

    How exactly is this supposed to help him in court and with shared custody?

    • I really hope the judge is seeing this crap he’s doing in the press and puts a gag order in this case. It’s pretty obvious where this is coming from and it’s not just “sources.”

    • .... says:

      That’s why I think the custody evaluators didn’t recommend visitation. He seems to have nothing to in he’s not worried about f king up any great deals he has going.

      You’d think if visitation was happening he’d be happy and busy. And not have time for creative writing projects ala page s!x and tm z etc…. Although he’s just hanging himself…. let him do it I guess.

      • KB says:

        Visitation is happening though. Every other day, four hours on school days and twelve hours on the weekend. Still plenty of time for “creative writing projects” as you call them lol

      • .... says:

        So says you……I’ll believe it when I see it…and when he stops crying that Angie turned them against him.

        Until then……it’s just something his pr wants you to believe.

        If he has visiataion and he’s still smearing her….the he’s nuts and should lose any rights immediately. He wouldn’t be behaving like this if the evaluators recommended visitation.

      • KB says:

        No, so says the court order. Why would they not be following the judge’s orders?

        Angelina’s people are the ones who put out the interim agreement statement. Do you think their interim agreement was that he not see any of the kids? Why would he agree to that and not insist on the planned court date? Your theory makes no sense.

      • .... says:

        if they ar going…why is he raging in the press at her. Why isn’t he happy. Why no pics? You don’t know what the custody evaluators recommended last week. Your theory is just a theory. An old initial schedule you have no proof Is being followed.

        And if he does have visitation…..and he is still raging in the media at her….he should lose it. Makes no sense why he’d be upset if things were supposedly going his way. His own people are playing up how she’s having to force The kids to see him… you think therapists are gonna recommend kids be w someone against their will? No….they won’t. He lost.

      • .... says:

        And kb…he’d agree to it because none of the kids wanted to go….and the custody evaluators who are thinking in the best interest of kids, didn’t recommend it.

        If he fights that then they could have a hearing and those evaluators can explain all the reasons why……..and he doesn’t want that.

        No need to have a hearing to hash out details if there is no visitation.

      • KB says:

        If he’s unwilling to fight for custody because he’s afraid details about him will come out, what have they spent the last two years fighting about in court?

        Why would these evaluators change their recommendations from earlier in the summer? Suddenly the kids don’t want to go, so they recommend against visitation having just previously recommended 4 and 12 hours every other day?

  24. Dulce says:

    Just WOW!!! That page six article was beyond disgusting!! Brad Pitt is a pathetic coward!! I cannot believe his smearing like this, the mother of his children’s!!! Its awful!! I hope Angelina is okey considering everything, that is happening!! And this fool is crying to the press… That Angelina is making parental alienation; WHEN its him and ONLY him the one who is making self-made parental alienation by treating his childrens mother like this!!

  25. bap says:

    What a Weak Pathetic man trying very hard to Smear the mother of his children.

  26. HK9 says:

    Parenting 101- Don’t smear the other parent no matter how justified you might feel. If you want to preserve the relationship with your kids see Kelly Rutherford’s ex on how to act. At some point the divorce will be over and all you will have are those relationships so take care of them now. These people have all the money in the world, and they can arrange for all the therapy/help to get them through this. They need to grow up.

  27. Boxy Lady says:

    People is reporting that Laura Wasser is officially off Jolie’s legal team.

  28. Sophie says:

    There’s an article online, about how Pitt & his crisis manager Matthew Hiltzik, are doing everything they can to “destroy” Angelina in the press. This lastest hit piece is from Hiltzik. He is very close with Page six & other outlets.

  29. bap says:

    The court date was 21st of August and Angelina since then has been looking very happy. Angelina has tough new lawyer to deal with that sum bag.

  30. serena says:

    This typical ‘She’s jealous, doesn’t want him to move on ‘ makes me so fricking mad. Why is his ego so frail he needs to destroy her image this bad? We all know she’s the one who dumped his drunk ass, there is no way he gets to say this now. Even after the Neri Oxaman disaster, seems like he didn’t get the memo : they don’t want him. And why would they? He’s clearly an a*le.
    I’m never watching one of his movies again.

    Final note, you can pay for your kids security and hotels as much as you want, doesn’t make you a better dad. Especially since he’s the one who alineated his oldest son by doing god knows what.

  31. JoJo says:

    I’m SHOCKED they haven’t blamed his drinking on evil,abusive Angelina,yet.

  32. Jess says:

    You know what saddens me the most? I clicked on this poll on TMZ asking “whose side are you on” and 98% chose Brad. 98% are on the side of abusive drunk dude who can’t handle divorce with dignity

    • KLJ says:

      Don’t be saddened. While TMZ is a go to for celebrity gossip, the people who actually stick around to comment directly on the site and take part in those polls are trashy cess pool types. Not the kind whose opinions of anything should matter to you or anyone else.

    • .... says:

      The pr ppl flood those sites also w pro b comments, and click on likes etc….they manipulate it a lot. When the pro ang comments come up they respond with a bunch of comments and bury it.

    • Leigh says:

      Wow, I just checked out the comments on a Brange post on TMZ, christ it’s brimming with sexist hatred against Angie, from female commenters no less (or at least ones posing as female), ugh. This just reminds me why I’ve never liked TMZ, it caters to a pretty gross/hateful audience.

  33. Really says:

    This campaign against Angelina Jolie’s remembers a lot what Johnny debt and his ridiculous minions did to amber heard ( and keep doing ) , but unfortunately this site is an exception because the majority of the public keep supporting the white male victim lost little boy artist, it is always the mean woman who provoked and did something and deserves to be punished.

  34. phlyfiremama says:

    Ugg, I hate to say this but he is CANCELLED for me from here on out. This is just so disgustingly UGLY of his “side” that I just can’t with him anymore. I don’t think there is any more question as to WHY she left him, and hasn’t looked back.

  35. Veronica S. says:

    What’s wrong with him is that HE’S AN ABUSER. That’s what they do. They turn the narrative. They make themselves the victim. They gaslight their partner and everyone around them in order to muddy the reality of what went on…while simultaneously undermining the horror of their own actions. Pitt stans can miss me with their bullsh*t. There’s nothing about his behavior that doesn’t scream red flags to anyone familiar with the psychology of addicts and abusers.

  36. .... says:

    Google narcissistic rage.

    He is an abusive person. Glad they are rid of him.

    I don’t believe for a second any of his kids are seeing him either…….. nor should they.

    • Carmen says:

      The most ridiculous claim I’ve read is that Maddox is begging to live with his father.

      Maddox doesn’t have to beg to live with either parent; if he wanted to live with Brad he would already be living with him. He is 17 years old and the issue of custody does not apply to him. He can choose which parent he wants to love with, and apparently he already has. He’s chosen to love with his mom.

    • Genessee says:

      Of course they are. By court order. Angelina would lose custody if they weren’t.

  37. Hmmm says:

    The sad thing is Angelina isn’t fighting back as hard as Brad is. I think it was good to put Laura on the back burner because she was letting this go on forever. The new lawyers do not want this to be never ending. With Samantha bey there is an end in sight which is obviously what Angie wants. Her new lawyers immediately asked for bifurcation to get their client out of this mess.

    • .... says:

      he’s trying to control her likeness in public……like she is his personal property…..and just like he did w his first wife.

      He’s trying to write the storyline for Angie….just like he wrote the boring, doesn’t want kids storyline for Jen. He thinks if he keeps spewing the same nonsense it will become truth.

      he will always be remembered for how he behaved towards his wives and kids.
      He is permanently tainted…..there is no spinnng your way out of this one.

      It’s done. Glad she’s doing what she needs to end it now. I wouldn’t take another second.

      • Hmmm says:

        Yeah and he and his team are trying to float the but Angie is an addict too story line. They don’t see how obvious they are.

      • Leigh says:

        Brad calling Jen boring was pretty cruel, but regarding her not wanting kids, I think that was truth. She’s nearly 50 and has no kids so it’s pretty clear she doesn’t want any.

      • .... says:

        Well it’s not his truth to tell. Is the point. She no doubt would have gotten pregnant had they stayed together…as her long term show had just ended.

        But luckily for her she dodged a bullet.

        He’s a con.

      • Carrie says:

        @Leigh – Aniston’s career was taking off when she married Brad. She wanted time to pursue it. I also think she was ambivalent about having kids with him because of how he treated her. She almost didn’t walk down the aisle the day they married… her instincts kicked in but he talked to her and she went through with it.

        She has done well on her own and that’s not easy in Hollywood for a woman. She’s smart and I think she knew on some level that Brad was not entirely truthful with her. Anyway, she was right, in the end, and is living life on her own terms. I’m happy for Jen. I’m happier for Angie and the kids right now tho because he is seriously bad news.

  38. InquisitiveNewt says:

    There are also rumours popping up on BG re her supposed substance abuse and how much he’s tried to “help” her. I only hope the judge can see through the sheer deluge of muck being flung by this loser’s team of malignant sycophants.

    • Sidewithkids says:

      If she’s using why would he not be going for full custody but shared. If she is such a user, then why not fight to see his kids. He didn’t do that. He did a GQ article and a movie. Dude and his old stans needs to quit. He messed up and still is messing up. Lol, kids gonna do what Steve Jobs kid just did, write a book about his horrible behavior. Dude needs to grow up. SMH.

      • InquisitiveNewt says:

        @SideWithKids EXACTLY. This was yet another attempt to insinuate some apparently deep character flaw in Angelina’s makeup while representing him as the decent, concerned guy. The blind stated she’d not been able to last more than a week in rehab because she couldn’t stay away from her kids… Cue a torrent of vile comments against a woman who has been pretty dignified, given that she’s going up against Brad-playing-the-salesman-character-in-Meet-Joe-Black, all doe eyes and sincerity and goodguyism. He’s totally toxic.

    • .... says:

      I’d be making a scrapbook, and I’d take those outlets to court as well and make them divulge their sources.

      The page six stuff lately is pure slander. And these outlets are clearly on brads payroll. His ppl put out exactly what they want to say…….and what they can’t say there…they are saying in the comment sections.

    • Hmmm says:

      This rumor makes me lmao because both of them were investigated and only one lost custody. Give it up, Brad .

  39. Sidewithkids says:

    Angie is doing the right thing, trying to move forward for herself and her kids. Glad she has the new lawyer so they can do what’s best for her not him. The kids picked a long time ago and they chose Angie. You can’t really alienate teens from their parents, they make their own decisions and seems to me if dude was half-decent, one kid would have picked him but no, all six want to be w/ her.

  40. .... says:

    He didn’t want to be there for…….and wasn’t around his kids for over a decade….and now they don’t want to be around him. Simple.

  41. .... says:

    This is a form of abuse…publicly harassing people you have abused and lorded over in the past…people that ghosted you left you and you can’t contact…….so you go to media outlets and pay to play….

    Public intimidation and humiliation …. threats and slander. That’s blackmail. And abuse.

  42. Leigh says:

    Maddox is almost an adult, a part of me kind of wants him to come out publicly swinging against Brad.

  43. laura-j says:

    Full disclosure I’m a Ride or die Angie Stan. I read the whole article. Even I wasn’t pro angie, holy sh*t, who does that about an ex? Says way more about Brad and his “friends” than it does about Angie.

    I hate a few of my ex’s and I still wouldn’t be ok with that kind of smear campaign.

    • Sidewithkids says:

      @Laura Lol, I always laugh at the whole Brad has celeb friends vs Angie thing. I don’t really think those people are his friends, Clooney is never around him until he does a movie w/ him, Julia Roberts and Matt Damon just come out for the occasionally photo op, his team just makes $$ off of him. Fincher may be his only celeb friend b/c he came to the wedding. I don’t think Brad has true friends and/or least people honestly telling him anything. He has people to kiss his a—. They allow him to be a drunken narcissist a-hole, same people that lied for Harvey Weinstein are lying for him. That’s why I do believe in time, he will be exposed for the jerk he is really.

  44. Hmmm says:

    Exactly side with kids, allegedly his new publicist worked with trump during the campaign. He’s a hot ass mess

  45. Rebecca says:

    Why is he making such a big deal about her filing for child support? They are his kids. He should be helping to support them. It is the norm for one parent to ask for a child support order in a divorce, especially if that parent is the one paying for most of the children’s expenses. I used to be a paralegal who worked for a divorce attorney. It’s the way things are done almost always. Why is Brad suddenly acting like this is not normal and it’s out of line? It makes him look so petty.

  46. Ellis says:

    I don’t care if she has 666 tattooed under her hair, she is a mother first, in the public eye second. She is loved as a mother by six intelligent children who are old enough to read. When a high profile rag like Page Six writes in support of this abusive substance abuser, I have to ask myself: Are they really just trying to incite further enmity against Arm Pitt? By his children. As a child of divorce, I know how hurtful it is when someone slams into your life-raft, aka, loving mother. In Peasantville, it’s usually the father, new stepmother, or former in-laws slandering mom in front of the kids. But this is way more damaging because, in today’s world of “hate now, compassion never”, as we have seen, the backlash against Angie was profound. This will not make the kids miss ol’ pothead more. They’ll know who to blame.

  47. LA says:

    “There’s a sensitivity chip missing.” – Jennifer Aniston, a million years ago (Remember the FLACK she got for that comment?). Sometimes, when someone is married to someone else for five years, they GET TO KNOW THEM REALLY WELL.

    • Carrie says:

      What’s funny about that too is she referred to him as not even being human…lol She was so right! You need a heart to be human.

  48. Busy Bee says:

    The wording of his denial is very specific. “He did not hit his son in the face.” Well, there is a whole lot of body below the face and many things that can be done outside of hitting.

    No judge in the US is going to require supervised visits for Brad Pitt if something pretty awful didn’t happen on that plane.

    • Sidewithkids says:

      I dunno but Brad could be drinking again, there seems to be a new lie about the Angie everyday now. This new lawyer and the truth about him not paying child support really stung him. Angie knows what she’s doing. They think she should just roll over and take his bs. Nope, not doing that Mr. Lameness. Remember when he thought he was just gonna take the Chateau from her. Angie was like, hold on, not gonna happen. Lol. Brad’s team is now saying Angie couldn’t get another lawyer in LA. Even though her new lawyer has offices in LA too. Lol. Brad is just demonstrating some bad behavior, that’s why I say he could be drinking again, just hope if he is seeing the kids, they aren’t witness to his drunken stupors anymore.

  49. OkieOpie says:

    Within that Page Six article is a bit about Angie being physically violent with Brad. Do not make excuses for either of them. Both are behaving terribly.

    • Sidewithkids says:

      Page Six is an obvious smear job done by Brad and Brad’s team. One is behaving terribly and the another is trying to stay afloat through constant lies and bs thrown her way.

  50. Shannon says:

    I think he’s pulling this from a place of fear and anger, which says to me she’s got the upper hand and he knows it. He can court public opinion all he wants, but that isn’t going to change the facts of the situation and it definitely isn’t going to change how his kids feel about him. A better relationship with his children needs to start with HIM. On that level, he could take a page from Ben Affleck’s book – BA may be very flawed and I personally understand struggles with alcohol and that struggle is real. But what will see him through to a positive relationship with his children, I’m convinced, will be the fact that BA has respected their mother and has never smeared her in the press. Brad is so cancelled for me.

  51. AD says:

    BP is paying all these people to attack his children’s mother yet he doesn’t want to contribute with their upbringing what sort of mentality has he got? I think he is just mean, waste his money on other things,people but not to people he loves, shame on him, a great pretender. He’ hired a new publicist because AJ who was his publicist has left. She is pretending to fight for 50 custody because he doesn’t want to pay child support simple as that.

  52. AD says:

    Page bulshit paid by BP to promote negative attacks on the mother of he calls his children, shame on him, yet he is unwilling to contribute to their upbringing. He is just a plain nasty old guy pretending to wAnt his kids as part of his image only, go away and focus on establishing a father relationship with your children if you really really want them. Stop your ruthlessness to your own family that is if you consider them your family. Page bulshit is laughing all the way in the bank.
