Us Weekly: Angelina Jolie is ‘extremely hard to deal with,’ according to Team Pitt

Girls day out! Angelina Jolie takes Shiloh and Zahara shopping at Kitson

Nowadays, I’m always suspicious when we go a full week without Brad Pitt smearing Angelina Jolie in the tabloids, or without Angelina’s lawyer issuing some new statement. Things have been quiet ever since the two-year anniversary of Angelina filing for divorce, which was September 20. That week, Entertainment Tonight published a story which was sourced from Team Pitt, all about how Brad and Angelina had called a “truce,” but only because Angelina finally apologized to Brad. Yeah, riiight. Basically, it was an undercover smear masquerading as a “no more drama” story. Well, two weeks later, Team Pitt is back at it again: they ran to Us Weekly to talk about how she’s “extremely hard to deal with.”

It’s far from over. Despite reports that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are in a cease-fire regarding their nasty custody battle, a source reveals in the new issue of Us Weekly they’re nowhere near making up.

“There is no truce,” the source says. “Angie is extremely hard to deal with, period. She wants what she wants, and no one is going to tell her otherwise.”

And since she changed her counsel to Samantha Bley DeJean in September, the fight for their six children — Maddox, 17, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, and Knox and Vivienne, 10 — has only intensified. “Angie is once again doing things that are interfering with Brad’s custodial time with the children,” the source says. “There have been several occasions in recent weeks in which the kids have been late, with Brad unable to reach anyone for answers.”

The actress, 43, has even started making indirect digs at the actor, from whom she split in 2016 after 12 years together. “I think it is not said enough how much we need the men in our lives to be strong and capable and the best they can be,” she recently told Hello! UK when asked about feminism.

A source close to Jolie has previously said none of these allegations are true. “Angelina remains focused on healing her family,” the family friend told Us in August. “She continues to support the reconciliation of the children with Brad.”

I guess I missed Angelina’s interview in Hello, but only Brad Pitt would be so butthurt about that quote. “I think it is not said enough how much we need the men in our lives to be strong and capable and the best they can be.” Is that an “indirect dig” or is it Angelina’s way of just shrugging and saying “men are trash, amirite?” As for the claim that Angelina is “interfering with Brad’s custodial time,” tell it to the court, I guess. Document it and tell it to the court, not Us Weekly. Also: they’re in LA, isn’t there always traffic in LA, and maybe that would explain the issue with “custodial time”? And for this: “Angie is extremely hard to deal with, period. She wants what she wants, and no one is going to tell her otherwise.” Angelina is amazing. He’s mad because she’s been done with his sh-t for years.

    US Weekly sucks since they’ve been bought by American Media. They make up crap

  2. CharliePenn says:

    When it comes to her children she certainly should want what she wants for them.

    • TheHeat says:

      Exactly what I was coming in to say @CharliePenn!

      Yet another chauvinistic example of how a woman is ‘difficult’ or ‘nasty’ because she is standing up for what, or in the case WHO, she believes in.

    • megs283 says:

      yup. I’m pretty easygoing and flexible – EXCEPT when it comes to my kids. I can be as difficult as the situation calls for.

    • Ad says:


      I agree
      Not only what she wants for her children but what the children wants as well. There was an interview where she said “The children are not recovering from the divorce but from life itself”. I guess it is not only about the plane incident but a whole lot of issues, his shouting for no apparent reason, maybe the way he communicates with the children, the words he used when communicating matters. The children are no longer babies they are at an age where they can understand hear,see,feels everything that is thrown at them in some ways they defend themselves by unwanting to be with him & their mother is protecting them & reiterating what they want. Angelina said children needs protection.
      The fatherly bond is not there. Some people believe that Angelina is alienating her children from their father it’s a NO No, . No one can stop children seeing a parent if there was a strong bond or relationship from the start or if parents were loving to their children. The JP children seems to be comfortable, happy being with their mother if not they would have rallied defied her to be with their father as he lives nearby. They go to his place as ordered by the courts, I wonder if there was no court order would have they gone to his place voluntarily or as they pleased? The children’s feelings matters a lot not only Angelina’s

  3. Denicah says:

    Never mind Angelina, has he dealt with the New Orleans lawsuit yet?

  4. anp says:

    Angelina puts her children needs first, he puts his concerts first.

  5. ANDREA1 says:

    Team Pitt doesn’t know how to shut the hell up[ and quit whining

    • Maya says:

      Brad turned out to be a typical white priviledged man – lying, smearing and playing the eternal victim…

      • ANDREA1 says:

        I swear down Maya i never saw this coming…. Nowadays he is just an old angry white male

      • Maya says:

        Same – I usually am pretty good at judging people’s character but I totally missed this one.

      • Go Figure! says:

        He just needs to STFD and STFU. He has his new piece so no need to keep smearing Angie. Angie has definitely moved on. He should do the same. And he’s not looking good! That’s my opinion and I’m sticking to it. He looks like what he is. a 54 year old middle-aged man.

      • Carmen says:

        It was easy enough to miss. He was Mr. Nice Guy as long as he got his way all the time.

  6. Maya says:

    Traffic? Angelina bought a house 1 mile from Brad’s house.

    Angelina and her team go through the legal route with evidence.

    Brad and his team go through media to smear and lie while not truly following the court order.

    As Kaiser said, if Angelina is doing something to obstruct, submit it to court with evidence.

    But I am willing to bet Angelina meant it when she said that she is out of this and it is now down to Brad, the children and court to heal the relationship.

    Angelina and Samantha really showed Brad & team that they won’t take his bullying and lying anymore. Samantha must have slapped them hard in court since not a peep from Brad’s team about the new order.

    Nonetheless, Angelina is living her life yet her children, rising career and probably dating in private.

    • anp says:

      @Maya Great comments!

    • Go Figure! says:

      Best revenge Maya. Looking good and living well which, apparently, Pitt is not doing. Angie is over him. Like she said, it is now between Brad, the children, and the courts. She is done! And once a woman tells you she is done, believe her!

  7. Snowflake says:

    According to her ex husband lmao

  8. anp says:

    He has never taken responsibility for NOLA. He wants to be seen as young man going to concerts and visiting art events.

    • Kathy says:

      OK, see, I made a joke about the concert thing on your other post because I thought you meant to write “concerns.” But now you are mentioning it again. Is … is this a thing? I mean, screw Brad and all that, but I googled and it looks like he went to two concerts this year. Is that such a ridiculous amount it deserves to be called out repeatedly?

      • Carol says:

        He attended several concerts in the last 2 years. Shall I list them? The Chris Cornell’s , the festival one in Glastonbury, Frank Ocean, U2, Valerie June, and now this one. It’s getting old with him out there being seen as young & hip and seemingly a carefree single man with no responsibility to his kids. That is what bothers folks the most.

      • Sun in Libra says:

        @carol people in their 50’s shouldn’t go to several concerts in a couple years? Am I missing something. Are concerts and art events a young man’s sport?

  9. Veronica S. says:

    Sounds like “difficult” just means, “Refuses to roll over and give him what he wants.”

  10. Sutcliffe says:

    All abusivr men hate when women want anything other than them. She has been an ambassador for the UN and a guest lecturer at one of the world’s top universities. The most notable thing he has done in the last three years is assault his child before attempting to hijack a fuel truck.

  11. CommentingBunny says:

    Yes, abusers often find their victims hard to deal with once they get out and stop taking & covering up for their crap. Mine certainly does.

  12. TheHeat says:

    Remember all of those stories we used to hear about Brad running out of the room in tears, that we once scoffed at, back in the happy Brangelina days?
    Yeah, I’m willing to bet those were actually really accurate.

  13. Pas says:

    Day by day, week by week, month by month. Brad and his team are getting more stupid.

    How can she interfere when the judge recommended her not to monitor the kids’ phone? Or the kids doesn’t want to talk to him. Didn’t it stated in the court order that she should not be late in dropping off the kids? Or if she did not do any of those, she will lose custody?

    And that quote. She’s talking about feminism. Don’t be so assuming brad, angie doesn’t want to talk about you.

  14. AD says:

    BP behaviour is nauseating, no patience. He is really trying very hard to portray her ex as a difficult human being yet people who knows her has nothing to say but full of praise & admiration which says a lot about the mother of her children.
    Can’t stand the man! BP stick to your friends, enjoy yourself as you wish, no commitment, no responsibility & stop whining, leave your ex & children get on with their lives leave them alone! They don’t need you! You are free, go away!

  15. anp says:

    Question why has not the lying tabloid media reported that BP has not been Photograph with his children going into the the 3rd year.

    • Heather says:

      Because this tabloid would just say he keeps his time very private but look at Angie tromping them around to make her look like the mom of the year! She obviously buys their love with shopping excursions that are really wallap walks. Brad is the better father because he keeps them away from the paparazzi.

      *just to be clear, the above is full sarcasm

  16. JoJo says:

    As others have said why hasn’t he ever addressed the Make It Right situation.Make a statement to at least pretend you care.

  17. He’s mad because they are really her kids. He was just along for the ride.

  18. Hmmm says:

    So happy Angelina is still not talking to him. Lmao. Have y’all seen his new Aniston lookalike yogi girlfriend? Heheheh that’s all he’s cared about is trying to make is image appear as a kind of zac efron who every single good looking woman in the world wants. Turns out no a listers will touch him with Ben afflecks… Oops!

  19. Slushee says:


  20. Sage says:

    He needs to go to court and stop his bitching to the media. Be aggressive and go to court to get your kids or shut it!

  21. anp says:

    He is such a Whiner.

  22. Miffy says:

    F*$k any magazine, publication or human that tries to paint a woman who ‘wants what she wants and no one is going to tell her otherwise’ as a difficult. How is that supposed to be an insult or a negative on her personality? IT’S 2018!!! Oh my god!!! Regardless of the ins and outs of the story (in my experience where there are separated parents there’s always a smidge of pettiness) that sentence alone needs to get everyone involved cancelled.

  23. anp says:

    Hoping one day Angelina will find a man worthy of her.

  24. Sidewithkids says:

    He still can’t get through to his kids, he can’t get all of them on board and the ones that do see him prob don’t want to see him all the time. But it’s clear he’s lying b/c he said it was a truce and we all knew that was a lie. Now, he’s saying there was no truce and blaming Angie again, even tho he can’t do the things it takes to be a father. This guy has become a major joke.

    • Carol says:

      That’s it with addicts, they rarely hardly ever take accountability or responsibility for their actions. It’s always something or someone’s faults. He drinks cause he’s in midlife crisis, or his wife was sick and had multiple surgeries and he’s so stressed out about it, or the charity he found was crumbling, or his teenage kids don’t listen to him blah blah. He’s such a whining baby.

  25. Cookieconsent says:

    Both are tiresome at this stage. Can they just get it over and done with? Those kids don’t want this dragged out.

  26. Dulce says:

    WOW!! Just WOW!! 😳 they are now rumors that Angelina is dating Keanu!!!!!!!! That would be so hot!! Hopefully this rumor is true!!

  27. Marcus says:

    1) The kids have nannies and bodyguards that can drive them to his place

    2) She purposefully bought a home in Los Feliz about 1 mile from their old home. Why would she pick that house. Obviously so the kids could see their father.

    3) He needs to man up and accept his faults. I know he admitted in an interview that he had a drinking problem. He needs to stop blaming Angelina and get himself the help he needs.

  28. JadedBrit says:

    Yeah, like badmouthing the mother of his children and playing the passive aggressive game isn’t going to massively backfire at some point. Hopefully in front of the judge. This creature needs a hard lesson in humility.

  29. AD says:

    So, the children don’t answer his calls? He was unable to reach anybody for answers? The children are always late. I guess the children are dragging their feet to go & see him or simply they don’t want to be with him, why forced them? Let them stay where they feel safe & loved!
    Why blame Angelina all the time.

  30. ANDREA1 says:

    Thank you. He thinks we are all fools

  31. Hmmm says:

    It’s because then his publicist would have to admit that the kids do not want to be around him even after all this time. Well, perhaps if he had went to a real rehab and a real dr things would be settled… Instead he went to clay therapy and has a natural healer giving him ozone injections. 😂😂😂
