Brad Pitt is ‘heartbroken’ that Angelina Jolie will provide evidence of his abuse

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

It’s my hope that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are in the last throes of their neverending divorce, and that this is the year everything will finally be settled. There’s some kind of upcoming trial or big hearing about the terms of custody for the younger children, and we still haven’t heard much about the financial aspect of the divorce finalization. Last week, The Blast got their hands on some new filings from Angelina, where she informed the court that she would be providing testimony and evidence of Brad’s domestic violence against her or the children or all of the above. Us Weekly also had a story about how Maddox (who is 19) has already provided testimony and it was “not flattering” to Brad. All of which leads me to this Page Six piece, which is yet another smear job from Team Pitt. Some highlights:

Brad is “heartbroken”: Brad Pitt is heartbroken over the leak from the Angelina Jolie camp that she is ready to testify about alleged spousal abuse in their trial over child custody, according to insiders. On March 12, Jolie, 45, filed court documents indicating that both she and her children are willing to offer testimony and “proof and authority in support” of her allegations against Pitt, 57. The court documents, in this case, are private and sealed but were leaked to Hollywood blog The Blast.

Just an endless amount of whining: A source close to Pitt said: “Brad is heartbroken that Angelina has gone that route. There’s a lot of emotion left after their marriage. He has taken responsibility for his actions and owned up to his past issues, he’s stopped drinking. The marriage was very passionate and toxic at times and — like all couples — they had fights, but also shared many good times together. He has talked about his drink and drug problems during the time they were together.”

He’s never attacked Angelina? “Brad and his camp has never attacked Angelina. But his camp feels this leak was calculated to sway opinion ahead of the conclusion of their trial,” the source said. “Brad feels like he’s being more and more isolated from his children, and he’s devastated about it.”

Will this be over soon? It is hoped the trial will end next month and the judge — which Angelina has tried and so far not succeeded in removing from the case — will rule on custody. Judge John W. Ouderkirk — who actually married Pitt and Jolie — has denied any personal bias or prejudice concerning any party or attorney in this case.

Did Maddox testify or not? Sources tell Page Six that the kids have been interviewed by court-appointed therapists, but it is believed recent reports that eldest son Maddox, 19, gave negative testimony against Pitt are untrue. His relationship with Maddox has been described as “difficult,” which Pitt is said to be heartbroken over.

[From Page Six]

I have no idea if Angelina or her lawyers leaked her filing to The Blast or whether it was some clerk or paralegal or whatever. It doesn’t really seem like Angelina’s style to leak that kind of stuff, but who knows what we would do in her situation. Especially since, contrary to what Brad’s team is saying now, they’ve been smearing her for years now. There have been periods when it’s gotten really ugly and… like Brad’s emotional abuse of Angelina has been happening out in the open.

Remember this curious story last year? Suddenly, Team Pitt was all conciliatory with Angelina and admitting that she’s been a great mother. Buried deep with the Entertainment Tonight piece, there was the admission that Angelina hasn’t been “keeping the kids from Brad” – the family court has determined the visitation schedule AND the years of monitored visitation for Brad. My point is that I still think Brad is playing fast and loose with what’s actually going on here and I can’t wait for all of his lies and smears to come back to bite.

    I hope this is the year that Brad Pitt gets exposed and Angelina Jolie and the kids finally move on from the evil this man put them through.

    “Brad and his camp has never attacked Angelina”

    Tank tattoo, 5 years smear campaign, leaking incomplete documents, using Maddox as a pawn in his Oscar bid, using her married surname not her legal name, jokes about wanting to kill his ex-wife and is purposefully perpetuating the BP/JA/AJ saga as he knows she’s the villain in that narrative.

    all that’s just in the public arena, I dread to think what he is actually putting his family through on a daily basis.

    • Amanda says:

      What about a tank tattoo? I’ve not heard anything about that before.

      • ThEHufflepuffLizLemon says:

        Not sure if it’s been “confirmed” but supposedly he has a tank aiming at her part of the family tattoo they both have.

      • Lily P says:

        It’s pretty well hidden on the internet but do a google images deep dive on it – it’s on his family tattoo with all their initials and her letter has been starred out (fair enough) with a tank pointing towards it (not so fair enough)

      • Amanda says:

        Thanks both, I didn’t know that. What a disgusting thing to do. Even if symbolic only, it shows his true feelings towards the mother of his children. Just gross.

    • sunhine says:

      If you type in “simply brad tattoo” and click the first link (it’s a fansite) you will see the tank tattoo if you scroll down. His PR is hiding but he doesn’t care. It’s visible in his pap pocs

    • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

      He has joked about wanting to kill her? That alone should be the nail in the legal coffin.

  3. Chica says:

    Brad will not let this go to court. Angie seems by the book and Maddox is at the age where he does not need parental permission to blab to press. It’s best this is handled quietly by Brad, he gets a rent-a-girlfriend and focus press elsewhere.. Oh, he tried that already.

  4. Leigh says:

    One thing I didn’t see was a flat out denial. Abusers usually are very upset when they’re exposed so I don’t doubt that. Cry me a river Brad

  5. Lucy2 says:

    I think they should have said heartbroken one more time…3 times just isn’t quite convincing enough.

  6. DS9 says:

    Again, if this were a leak designed to hurt him, we’d know what Maddox testified to.

    I need these people to stop playing me.

  7. Jezebel says:

    Okay as a lawyer I have a question for all of the lawyers here. Maybe I am missing something, but what on earth could be going on here? If it’s not financially motivated (bc I’m pretty sure she settled with him on the money a long time ago), then it would be custody motivated. And on that front, it’s clear that the three eldest are all a) no longer minor or b) have been fully allowed to remain non-visiting. So presumably it would be focused on the three youngest. If it were for their protection, then she likely would have been asked/mandated by the court to produce the evidence of abuse years ago now. That is mandatory whenever a CPS or investigative agency is involved. And from all outside coverage of their divorce all these years, Brad has appeared compliant with all orders and visitation constraints. So what would the purpose of this 4 1/2 years in be?

    • Lily P says:

      I was speaking with my mum who works in a women’s shelter here in the UK and it’s not that uncommon in divorces where there has been/is abuse. Essentially, it’s the only way an abuser can continue to inflict harm after the person leaves. It’s a way to continue to manipulate, degrade and harm their survivor/victim through prolonging and controlling the trial/proceedings. Throw in the added likelihood of a hurt ego and you’ve got yourself a very volatile situation where abuse evolves into something very different and can continue for years.

      Basically she says abuse rarely stops when the person leaves and the bureaucracy of courts facilitates the ability of a perpetrator to continue to harm.

      • Hereforit says:

        I practice commercial litigation, not family law, and haven’t looked at the docket for this case, but prior to trial it is customary to exchange witness and exhibit lists. I witness lists often have to provide a brief summary of what the witness will testify about. Even if documents and evidence have been in front of the court in various briefs (e.g. summary judgement motion) they must still be introduced through a witness to be considered evidence in the trial.

        As for why they are still fighting about it, my guess is because Brad can, so he does to continue to make AJ miserable.

      • FF says:

        You only need to look at the Johnny Depp/Amber Heard filings to see that abusers use the courts to keep getting at their exes after they leave.

      • whatWHAT? says:

        to add to this theory, there’s another example – Sofia Vergara and that abusive jerk who’s been suing her for control of their embryos.

        some men will continue the abuse against a woman who “won” and got away from him.

      • cdnKitty says:

        Yes to this. I posted last week on the other article, but I’m going through something similar with my ex (without the fame and money). He’s actively not participating in the divorce process, unless there’s a deadline where I can get a judge to grant me something uncontested and then he’s suddenly engaged, and so I’m now using every legal step available to me to get this done. This week is a settlement conference. When this fails then we continue to make overtures to negotiate and set a trial date because he just can’t seem to get it. It’s exhausting and I’m only 2.5 years in. Abuse doesn’t end when you leave, but it’s easier to endure than being in the relationship.

      • Lee says:

        My ex dragged it out in the courts for 11 years. And this was before people (and the courts) were aware of parental alienation, and he was an expert at that too. He was open about the fact it was revenge for me leaving. I can’t believe I survived it all. He was obsessed and relentless.

      • iconoclast59 says:

        @Jezebel, I suspect Angelina might have dragged out the divorce so the kids aged out of enforced visitation. If they had settled this earlier, the courts may have given Brad a very generous visitation, or even joint custody*, and Angie would’ve had to go along with it. (*Yes, sadly, even abusers can still get joint custody.) She wanted the kids to be old enough to opt out of visitation. Note how the oldest kids want little or nothing to do with Brad; they’re old enough that the court would have a difficult time compelling them to see him if they don’t want to.

    • Myra says:

      I think the trial is finally about to start so these are supporting documents for the benefit of the trial. They also seem like back and forth responses between the two parties submitted to the court. From what was explained, the trial was delayed last year because of the pandemic and before that Pitt’s lawyers had been filing lots of extensions. They are technically already divorced, just finalising custody arrangement and finances. *Not a lawyer though*

    • Ang says:

      My guess is she is determined to show the kids there is no wiggle room around abuse. So, is holding out for no solitary (no Brad and them without supervision) access to the three youngest.

    • Ang says:

    • sunhine says:

      The name “offer of proof” is not supposed to be taken so literal. For an offer of proof to happen, Brad’s side objected a line of questioning or a testimony. Her lawyer is saying that the objected testimony or questioning is important to the case. This is the time they can (and should) enter new evidence to support the testimony.

      So she’s not technically randomly entering the evidence.

  8. Myra says:

    I don’t believe there was a leak. From what I understand, the title/heading of one of the documents filed included the words domestic abuse. The Blast likely just ran an article based on that heading alone. There were other documents filed as well but all contents are sealed. US Weekly likely just ran the piece that Maddox made an unflattering testimony based on what they think the evidence prove. It’s telling that there isn’t a real denial from his camp (aside from the Maddox testimony) but only attempts to paint him as the victim. His PR is the same as KP’s PR because they love having sources telling tabloids about how they feel while painting the other person in a negative light. He has been doing this for almost four years now.

    • Golly Gee says:

      He is the eternal hapless “I can’t understand why this is happening to helpless little old me“ guy. But it may also be a way of teeing up his legal defense:
      “Brad feels like he’s being more and more isolated from his children, and he’s devastated about it.” Here it sounds like he’s setting up a parental alienation defense because he knows that there will be negative feedback from the kids. It’s also a way to anticipate and counter negative press when the information comes out in court by having the parental alienation idea planted in peoples’ minds ahead of time. If Angie comes out ahead in custody arrangements, his team will go full force planting stories about how he lost due to parental alienation, in an attempt to deflect from the real reason that he lost out.

  9. Faye says:

    Through all that, all Brad side could say was he “owned” his past. So, the abuse allegations are true? Good to know straight from his team

  10. Sierra says:

    As someone else said few days ago, 2021 is the year of receipts.

    Angelina, bring all of the receipts to the table and expose Brad for yours and your children’s vindication.

    • MLouise says:

      I wish 2021 is the year of receipts- a little tired to live with consequences of others letting their evil side hurt you and get away with it. sorry, it is a lot to get over without acknowledgment and still painted the one that is defective. It is a common theme- so let’s hope time is up for real.

  11. Lowrider says:


    What a mess of a man. He should outright own his bad behaviour. He tiptoes around his drug and drinking and now alleged DV abuse. I can guarantee if he took ownership people would still forgive him and he wouldn’t lose his career or fan base.

    Jolie was demonized for over 12 years. A lot people don’t want to rethink what they thought about her. They don’t want to see that golden boy Brad was the demon in the relationship.

  12. AKA says:

    “Taken responsibility”, “marriage was passionate and toxic at times”, “he has talked about his problems during their marriage” are all very telling words here. None of this screams abuse denial, so sounds more like he is aware Angie has rock solid evidence against him and isn’t trying to feign ignorance. Just playing the old “she knew who I was”, and “leave the children out of this” card.

    • LoreleiJade says:

      @AKA to me this sounds very much like he’s trying to say she’s to blame too if he was ever violent, they were both SO passionate it’s not his fault he lost it sometimes. Disgusting.

      • Mb says:

        I had an ex who gaslit me so much to believe that the only reason why he was abusive was that I brought that out in him. That I asked for it and that we were passionate and that is why we fought. He was also a very soft-spoken, gentle man in public, so of course, no one could believe that he could be abusive. The only time anyone thought maybe something was going on, was the one time he made the mistake of hitting me in the jaw, which he almost broke (he was very careful to not have and bruises people could see). He was furious at me that people started suspecting there was abuse in the relationship

    • Zapp Brannigan says:

      Yep, he is practicing the tenth rule of misogyny

      10. The worst thing about male violence is that it makes men look bad

    • cdnKitty says:

      Using ‘passionate’ as a cover and to normalize abuse is not ok.

  13. bibi says:

    Angelina seems fair and seems to follow what the court says. My read about this is that not only brad is an alcoholic but also a drug addict (we all knew it). But they said he doesnt drink anymore – they dont says he doesnt take drugs anymore. makes sense that his visits should be supervised. team angelina

  14. bibi says:

    Angelina seems fair and seems to follow what the court says. My read about this is that brad is still using drugs. “He has taken responsibility for his actions and owned up to his past issues, he’s stopped drinking. (…) He has talked about his drink and drug problems during the time they were together.”
    makes sense that his visits should be supervised. team angelina

  15. AKA says:

    If anyone cares to google the Domestic Bliss photoshoot taken by Steven Klein, it gives a lot of indication about their relationship. Before anyone assumes the photoshoot was a homage to Mr and Mrs Smith, this entire shoot was proposed by Brad Pitt, who even came up with the concept for it. Doesn’t sound normal at all to me. It’s quite scrubbed off the internet though, so you may have to make do with Pinterest links.

    • Mireille says:

      There was a pap photo also taken of them in Australian, appearing to have an argument outside on a balcony. At the time it was being circulated, nobody really knew what what going on. He was smoking, agitated, and then she comes out of nowhere and hugs him — like she’s trying to calm him down. Then there was another shot of her (without Brad now on the balcony) looking distressed as if she had been crying. I remember this photo and now thinking back on it, it seems just a hint of what was really going on in their relationship.

    • lemonylips says:

      I never saw the full photoshoot but did go check it now. Seeing it through the lense of this case, I have to say it’s disturbing actually.

    • lucy2 says:

      W mag still has it up. I don’t know that I ever saw all the photos, I didn’t realize how disturbing some of them are. Many of them, actually.
      This photoshoot came out very soon after he blew up his first marriage, and was the point where I realized there was something wrong with him. It’s bad enough to ditch your spouse for someone else, but it happens – this just seemed like rubbing salt in the wound.
      It ended up being kind of prophetic I guess – the illusion of the “perfect” family with all the kids, and an alcoholic mess behind closed doors.

      • Chaine says:

        Wow. I’ve never seen most of these. The gun! The ones where it looks like he is pinning her down and she is trying to get away! Yikes. And she was so young and gorgeous then. Makes me think her extreme thinness that came later might have had to do with stress of the marriage, exerting control over what little she could control at that time.

      • Sue Denim says:

        Wow… thanks Lucy2, v good analysis, and adding to Chaine, I don’t remember the darker ones either, or the alcohol in his hand in so many of them. I don’t know how closely this relates to the film, so maybe it’s really that, but it does seem told us who he was on so many levels back then…from doing it in the first place to his “imagination” of family life… There’s something also Hitler youth about this too…and cruel…

      • ElleE says:

        That photoshoot=speechless. I haven’t seen it in years and it seems sinister. Random thought: this may have been brad’s idea because he wanted the role in Tree of Life which was released in 2010? Switch out AJ with Jessica Chastain and those look like movie stills.

        That movie stuck with me-it’s beautiful and painful and I thought at the time that BP’s character was, like, a little too real? Like it made me wonder if that character reminded him of his own dad? (Not a compliment)

      • smcollins says:

        I think too much thought and over analyzing is being given to these photos. They’re meant to tell a story. A shiny, happy, rainbows and daisies kind of story? Obviously not. Are some of the images more on the dark & disturbing side? Yes. But I also think that’s the point. And while I understand why the focus is on Brad, are we supposed to pretend that Angelina wasn’t a willing participant in the photo shoot and that she didn’t know what the images were conveying? What about the photographer? Yeah, the concept may have been Brad’s idea but the execution was a team effort.

      • Myra says:

        So even when the man says it was all his idea, he directed and executed it, we still blame the woman, huh? The photoshoot always portrayed domestic abuse behind closed doors – whether it was intentional or not is another matter.

      • smcollins says:

        Blame? Blamed for what? I’m not “blaming” anyone for anything. All I’m saying is way too much analysis is being applied to a photo shoot from over 15 years ago based on what is going on with them now. And either Angelina is/was a grown woman with free will and a mind of her own or she isn’t/wasn’t. Just like they do in the movies they star in they were playing a part and telling a story, and she participated in the telling of that story, that’s what they do. It’s called acting. It’s not “blame”.

      • Myra says:

        The point is that the photoshoot being Brad’s creative concept could offer a small insight into how he possibly equates domestic bliss with domestic abuse – maybe it was intentional, that he wanted to show behind closed door’s the perfect family image is darker than what we see. However, the conversation is relevant now especially as his team tries to repackage what could have been an abusive relationship as “passionate”. It downplays the impact on the victims. Bringing up models, photographers and everyone else who participated in the shoot does not lessen Brad’s own creative input. This is his work, his thought process.

        We also do something similar with Allen’s filmography on predatory relationships and his actions in real life. Bringing up actors in Allen films will just derail the conversation on Allen’s own problematic real world view. It would feel like wanting to pass the blame around when the conversation is on one potential abuser.

    • Kay says:

      They weren’t even together then he was married to Jennifer Aniston. They did it for the film Mr and Mrs Smith.

      • TaraBest says:

        The article says very clearly these photos were taken a year after they met and filmed the movie, and months after he and JA split.

  16. LillyfromLillooet says:

    I still remember the story that Brad and Angelina felt like their relationship was cemented when Pax started calling him “Dad.”

  17. sue says:

    About Brad and taking drugs: what kind of drugs are talking about? I’m so desperate to know! Please enlighten me

    • AmyB says:

      From my recollection, even when he was with Jennifer Aniston, they smoked a lot of pot together, drank socially (though it’s never seemed Aniston has had an issue IMO). But he was definitely doing those kinds of things back then. So, that could have carried over to his time with Angelina? Obviously the drinking got worse as well. Don’t know if other drugs got involved. I was married to a drug addict, so I am familiar with the escalation of these things. For my ex, it was pot and alcohol – which later lead him to harder things like cocaine and heroin. They develop a tolerance and need stronger and stronger drugs. So how knows with Pitt?

      • sunhine says:

        His was quite vague in his gq article. He said there wasn’t a day he was drinking, smoking or doing “something.” He also said he was able to able to cut everything else expect alcohol out. He had been using drugs/alcohol as a crutch of some sorts for his emotional problems and his alcohol intake increased since he wasn’t doing anything else.

  18. LOL says:

    What about the heartbreak that his actions caused to Angelina and their 6 children what about that heartbreak that same family has gone through trauma therapy just because of him . Why are Angelina and a 6 minor children’s feelings disregarded as secondary who got publicly abused by the media all down to Brad Pitt and his team spreading lies against her what about that heartbreak.. this man child is only thinking about himself and his Image nobody else if he was a true manner true husband and a father he would have put his family first and foremost but he had here he is 5 years later still without custody still being monitored when he’s with his kids and still gaslighting and emotionally attacking and abusing Angelina.

  19. LOL says:

    I think we should thank page 64 also confirming he has drug issues along with his alcoholism. Just because they say there’s never been a police report and he’s never been found guilty of anything and he’s cleared does not necessarily mean he has never emotionally and mentally abused Angelina and the children I think it’s less of the physically but more so emotionally and mentally is abused his children and Angelina apart from the attack he attacked Maddox that was physical

  20. LOL says:

    How blatantl are page 6 lying that Angelina leaked the documents the documents in question are are sealed Court documents and the only way that the blast was able to see it because of open court filing everybody can see it. So for page 6 to openly spread defamatory lies and say she leaked them is downright lie they need to be sued . And to call Angelina toxic and him never having a police record is his way of shifting blame on the victim of abuse not all abuse are physical what about the Mental and emotional abuse that mental and emotional control over somebody that will never be Be-Ro ported to the police that is what the weak them suffer in silence for that I believe Angelina has been suffering at his hands.

  21. Greta says:

    There was no leak. I’ll keep repeating myself, their hearing ended in February, it started January 15th, and was a result of Pitts request to modify custody. They have an existing custody agreement reached in 2018, he’s trying to change it. The documents in question were filed sometime in January or February as their hearing was happening. For whatever reason there has been a delay in uploading documents on the court site. These documents in particular showed up on March 12, there were 11 documents uploaded in total on the day. We fans saw them them on Tuesday the 15th, and discussed them, and then the blast had the story later. Pitt is well aware that nothing was leaked, he’s known about the documents for months, these are lies and damage control because he’s mad the rest of the world now knows too.

    This is how all documents appear on the court site, that can be accessed by anyone who knows the case number.
    “Miscellaneous ((UNDER SEAL) Offer of Proof and authority in support thereof RE: testimony regarding domestic violence )
    Filed by Petitioner”

    Miscellaneous ((UNDER SEAL)-Offer of Proof and Authority in support there of RE: testimony of minor children )

    Anyone keeping an eye on the site can see that and voila tabloids have a story to spin as they see fit.

    Angelina hasn’t leaked anything, if she wanted to be really shady, she would have leaked their 2018 custody agreement, she didn’t. She also hasn’t said anything at all. For anyone paying attention, Angelina has been speaking a lot about domestic violence the last few years, in her Time op eds, conversations with Dr Nadine Burke Harris etc. But If Angelina ever decides to speak about her experience with Pitt, she’ll tell us using her own words. Not by leaking vague court documents that don’t tell us anything, and instead lead to accusations of she’s lying or wants attention.

    • lucy2 says:

      Exactly. And she could have spilled all the dirt the day after the plane incident happened, and instead has kept quiet for years now.
      But standard court procedures don’t play well to his victim PR campaign, and the “evil ex wife leaked it” does.

    • Kay says:

      so what’s the outcome of the hearing.

  22. Mireille says:

    First off, Angie is not “leaking” anything. They’re taking the titles of her filings and running amok with it — and I mean the media and Pitt’s PR.

    Secondly, outside of her managers and her legal team, Angie doesn’t have any PR to defend or praise her in the media. BRAD, on the other hand, has a PR agency doing all his dirty work. And from what I read on some tweets last night, he has employed the bullish aggressive PR firm that once represented Harvey Weinstein. All sorts of toxic nonsense gets published about Angie and people believe that shit — yet Brad is hurt, lost without the kids, heartbroken, whimpering in self-pity and it’s all Angie’s fault etc. Really, the PR narrative is repetitive of casting Brad as the doting, victimized father, having gotten clean (how much you want to bet he’s NOT sober?).

    Thirdly, I wish the media would dig a little more into Brad’s background, because there’s A LOT there — his addictions, etc. But then again, a powerful PR agency can easily wipe the slate clean on the Internet.

    They are going to trial, which I thought meant that Judge John W. Ouderkirk is no longer needed. Correct me if I’m wrong about this? He was the arbitrator in their case so that they DIDN’T have to go to trial. And he failed at that when he failed to disclose his financial dealings with Brad’s legal team.

    Why is this taking so long? Simple. Angie’s fighting for the rights of her youngest to be heard. And I’m thinking they aren’t too keen on being forced to spend any time with their non-sober, neglectful, abusive father.


  23. Blues says:

    Greta and Mireille are correct. If Angie had a powerful PR team scraping and scrubbing like Pitt she would be perfect too. But a fair warning again to this douche and his team, DV is serious along with child abuse which he clearly did on the plane. Don’t know if he is it any other time but that diary he did. He want cleared by anyone he struck a deal. Words have consequences. They are clearly trying to discredit Maddox poor thing. They are clearly trying to smear Angie. It won’t work.
    A lot of that stuff printed is sensationalized for gossip but so harmful to these six small kids they pretend to want to protect from their mom. Stupid and disgraceful.

  24. Magnolia Rose says:

    I haven’t been to your site in a while, but I have something to say lol!
    So after watching the Allen Vs Farrow doc, I’m looking at this with fresh eyes. I know Angelina was accused of parental alienation. Now I see that the theory of parental alienation was coined by a misogynist creep. I know there are cases of it, I’ve seen very bitter divorce battles, but this case doesn’t fit that. The facts seem to show Maddox was already angry with Brad. Who knows what he saw and heard, but he was there first hand and has the knowledge of what Brad Pitt was truly like to his wife and children. So does Angelina. Brad’s friends, coworkers, family and especially fans do not have the first hand knowledge of what went on in that home. We all know people who show a much different face to the outside world. So I’m going to err on the side of believing Angelina and the children. CPS and the FBI “clearing” Brad doesn’t mean he wasn’t abusive. It meant they had no criminal case. Abuse comes in many forms.
    I think Angelina has been unfairly painted in the PR sense. Right from the marriage to Billy Bob and her father appearing on E news to stage some sort of “intervention” to her being branded as some sort of jezebel home wrecker to now being a scorned woman who is alienating her children against their father. I will admit to falling for it and not always liking her. She has flaws, like all humans, but she also was involved with men who have proven to be toxic starting with her father and now with Brad. She’s been accused of having no female friends. Called a husband stealer. I don’t have strong feelings for or against Jen Aniston, but her PR team really did a number on Angie. And it worked unfortunately. Jen being friendly with Brad was a huge story, especially last awards season. It further helped to paint Angelina as irrational.
    Don’t even get me started on Brad’s PR campaign. Angie being accused of parental alienation really struck a chord with the MRA set. I don’t think Angelina alienated her children from their father. I think he did that himself. I looked at her intensely and fiercely loyal relationships with her oldest child and her brother and see two men who have stuck by her and have most likely seen her endure the abuse by her toxic father and husband. I see the smiles on her children’s faces in pap pictures. I see her light up when she discusses her kids. This is not an evil woman. Of course she wasn’t the perfect wife or is the perfect mother, but no one is.
    I see this divorce dragging out not as a scorned woman trying to inflict revenge, but as an abusive and manipulative man trying to make his family “pay” for leaving him. I’m glad Brad had gone to rehab and done what he needed to do to see his kids. But I would really like to see him carry that into the courtroom and the court of public opinion. He’s already a golden boy. His PR campaign seems to be saying look how much Brad has done these past five years and she STILL won’t relent. Except that he leaks stuff constantly and got a tank tattoo pointing to the place where the A was on his family/cross tattoo. I dare his fans try and tell me that’s normal. I like his movies, but I will have a hard time watching them now.
    I believe Angelina Jolie has been painted as a harlot home wrecker and a hysterical woman scorned like a ton of women before her, but I hope she’s ok and I’m glad she seems to have a support system. After hearing how Woody Allen’s PR person worked overtime to discredit and smear, I now look at a lot of these stories with different eyes.
    Sorry for my loooonnnggg comment, but I know it will be appreciated and not trolled on here :)

      I’ve been seeing so many parallels too to the Woody Allen story and the cruel nonsense, the manipulation and abuse of the whole “parental alienation” lie. Also w recent shootings, the storming of the capitol, H&M — this deference to the “feelings” of abusers… I really hope this is indeed the year of receipts…

    • AmyB says:

      Unlike you, I have actually always been an Angelina Jolie fan. But, I also liked Brad and Jennifer Aniston when they were together. Yet, I do have to agree with your assessment here. Jolie was painted a certain way by the media in the beginning, of course, most of it had a lot to do with her own strange & erratic behavior. Marriage to Billy Bob, her sort of, I don’t care attitude, bad girl image. And yes, she was portrayed as the homewrecker. And I really hated how she took the fall for breaking up the Pitt/Aniston marriage when it takes two. Who really knows what happened behind closed doors, but Pitt left so why did Jolie have to take all the heat? Anyway…I think now we see Brad Pitt’s true colors with all of this. I really liked him up until their divorce/allegations after the plane incident; I really liked Jolie and Pitt as the Hollywood golden couple. And I loved how Jolie really blossomed and grew as she adopted Maddox and had other children, focused on her humanitarian issues and charity work, began directing etc. But I absolutely agree with a lot of what you say here. That incident on the plane was so bad, she literally left her partner of ten years, took their six kids and never looked back. She has never spoken publicly about it in what? 4 years now. And Brad’s PR team has gone to great lengths to smear her. Makes me sick, especially after Pitt’s Oscar campaign – UGH! I want her to drop the receipts on this, I really do!!! Just to finally expose him. I too will never look at one of his movies the same, just like Kevin Spacey!

      Remember when Jennifer Aniston said he has “a sensitivity chip missing” YEAH, understatement of the F**KING year LMAO

    The love of my life occasionally stopped drinking. It didn’t mean he was sober. It meant he was dry. When drinking he was mean. Just plain mean. When not drinking, he was not as mean. Whether drinking or not drinking he was morose.
    Sometimes his ‘black cloud’ would suffocate any light or joy in our house.
    He would let us (my son and I) down so often. “sure, I’ll lay the carpet” … but would do 4/5ths of the job, then never finish. “Sure, I’ll paint (he was a painter as a living but thought of himself as a tortured artist)…..but would never finish the job. Finally I did have enough and kicked him out, but to this day I feel sad he chose the bottle over us.
    But he did.

    • Golly Gee says:

      Good point. The fact that Pitt keeps smearing his family in the press shows that he’s not doing any of the work required to change harmful behavior.

  26. LOL says:

    His Brioni Ad has been edited now they took out him singing “my wife clipped mr she cluoed me good , I hurt my soul in manhood”. They have taken out Brad singing this and replaced it with bird noise something to hide Brad? I must say his PR are on overdrive erasing everything He’s said that would indicate towards domestic violance . Let’s go through his gaslighting speeches of wife hating

  27. Adorable says:

    I Just want Angelina TO FIGHT BACK!!!!!!Her name and that of her kids has been smeared to no end.Sure Brad has a beast of a PR Behind him,but you’re Angelina F***g JOLIE Fight back damn it!

    • Roses says:

      But isn’t she fighting back in the courts where it matters the most? Instead of battling with him publicly, she has decided to handle it thru the courts which in all honesty is where the fight should be because this about the kids safety. If she wasn’t fighting like it appears she is doing now. I highly doubt this would still be going on because he would have made sure everything was swept under the rug.

    • lucy2 says:

      My guess is she’s trying to protect the kids and keep it as peaceful as possible for them. There was some back and forth early on, but she seems to have locked it all down.

      Plus, I would think by now she knows she won’t win a tabloid war against him. He’s been getting away with crap for decades. He got all the praise for his charity in New Orleans and then spent the past few years trying to dodge the lawsuits. He let everyone run with the narrative Jen wouldn’t have kids with him (bullet dodged) and now that Angelina is evil and keeping their kids from him. He spent their relationship selling himself as some devoted family man, now we see the truth. He let both women get pummeled by the press for years. And he’s spent this whole divorce doing sob story interviews and waging PR wars.

  28. Lively says:

    The language his pr is using in this article is very telling.
    Good god, I’m actually horrified that this article actually indicates his was abusive towards his family but he changed now. And the media is just quite. wooowwww

    I’m actually convinced his PR game is unmatched.

  29. Kay says:

    I think Angelina is fighting through the courts which is right because that’s where it matters. She does have PR and does use it when she needs too, she will not spend millions of her money on PR she is spending enough on lawyers.

    She wanted to live abroad with her children and Brad could visit and she wanted full custody and wouldn’t take any money. That was the initial arrangement and Brad wasn’t happy about it. They still have financial assets to sort out. Who owns the house in France? Also the children are not independent none of them are earning any money. Are they really going to be making millions like their parents? I doubt it.

    Angelina seems to have a history of bad relationships and that’s why she gets a bad press. She has also been too open about her lifestyle in interviews and was the wild child of Hollywood and gets criticised for it more than a man would. She has also deliberately not been doing many interviews in the US in particular which probably annoys the press evenmore.

    • Maria says:

      “Angelina seems to have a history of bad relationships”

      Excuse me? Her marriages with Miller and Thorton failed but she is very good friend with both of them.
      What history of bad relationships. If we count Pitt she only have three relationships.
      Three doesn’t make “history”.
      Pitt has a worst past in terms of relationships even legally questionable…

  30. Serena says:

    Boooh-hooo abuser crying over the truth being revealed. Me thinks he’s just scared the press will get air of what he actually did to her and/or the kids and ruin his image.

  31. Kelly Rae Johnston says:

    I wonder at what age the younger kids can just decide for themselves that they don’t want to see BP? Feels like they are getting to that age that courts should just leave it up to them.

  32. Maggie says:

    Angelina is not saying anything about what happened with Brad because she can’t. Anything she says in public to the press can be used against her in court. The documents are under seal which means she cannot discuss what she tells the court. And if she does, it can be used to ‘prove’ parent alienation. My bet is we won’t hear about specifics until all the kids are over the age of 16. (14 is the age when the courts start allowing children to testify on their own behalf. Before that it must be done through child therapists and activists. 16 is when children can refuse to follow custody orders. This is just a general rule and exceptions can be made ). I’m not a lawyer, but I’ve was dragged through the legal system by my abusive ex and had to eventually act as my own lawyer when I could no longer afford one. My son is 13 and I am not allowed to tell him that I was a victim of abuse. In fact, I was not even allowed to bring up the abuse I suffered during the custody hearings. I was told it would make me look overly emotional (crazy) and if he was guilty of abuse, I was guilty of marrying him and staying with him so I could be views to be just as guilty. (Luckily I had a pretty fair judge who saw through a lot of my ex’s bs.) Domestic violence against a partner is not considered a factor in setting custody orders unless the children were witnesses and old enough to know what was going on. That being said, I once met a woman that was hospitalized by her ex after he beat her in front of their children and he was still allowed unsupervised visitation with the kids. She was even told that at some point she would have to get over it and no longer have supervised exchanges too. Granted this was 10 years ago, but it takes a long time for the courts to adapt to changing viewpoints so I believe it’s pretty much still like this.

    • Golly Gee says:

      Interesting information, especially the point about Angelina being careful to avoid being critical in the media of Brad‘s relationship with the children as it could help his parental alienation claim.

    • Mireille says:

      OMG – how language in a legal matter can be weaponized against women who suffer abuse. They’re “crazy,” “why didn’t she leave?” or “parental alienation.” It’s sick that after all these years the patriarchal court system still puts the ONUS of abuse on the woman who suffers it. Like it’s her fault if her partner beats her, humiliates her, gaslights her. SMH.

  33. Stelly says:

    Yes! Fuck him. I’ve been waiting for her to do this for a while. Clearly something happened and she’s done with protecting him. Let the world know Angie!

  34. LittleRedHoodie says:

    They’re both messy people, both narcissistic like all actors. Think of the children and please stop dragging this out in public! I don’t believe he was abusive, more likely distant and absent as a father and leaving her to it mostly. I think they were pretty much done around 2015, when he was flying around alone and she was looking very sad at various events like Hamilton with the kids in New York. He’s not into the domestic thing; it was exciting and fun for a while esp when they were The Power Couple with 6 cute kiddies. Once you start dealing with teenagers it requires emotional complexity, which Artiste Brad doesn’t seem to have. However, points for him for admitting his mistakes, which he did years back anyway. These two were always phony with their happy family thing; I’d believe she’s a responsible (but overly present and dependent) parent whereas he got bored when the reality set in (Sagittarius man).

    • Lily P says:

      Okay, if he’s innocent why hasn’t he or his team outright denied that he was abusive? There’s been no denial they’ve just made excuses and allegations/defamations against Angelina AND his children.

      “Distant and absent” is neglect. Neglect is abuse.

    • sunhine says:

      Why didn’t you mention his alcoholism? 2015 was around the time he said his alcohol intake was at it’s highest. Why would you assume he was just a distant and not abusive in some way? He was clearly not a happy drunk. He wouldn’t have had supervised visits for so many years if he was just “distant.” Also I think it’s clear he loved having a big family and loved having lots of kids around. He’s talked about being lonely and having a quiet house multiple times.

      He’s an addict whose recent addiction (alcohol) made him turn into an abusive person. She has ever right to defend herself and their kids in court.

      • Keri says:

        Exactly! He’s the alcoholic and drug addict that couldn’t get it together. There’s a reason that for years, he was required to do therapy and had supervised visits mandated by the court.

        She could trash him in the tabloids and play dirty like he is but she’s doing it the smart way, legally, in a court of law. Personally, I am thrilled that she’s fighting back legally and not doing it in the press. She’s teaching her girls and the rest of her children that it’s alright to fight back and stand up for yourself against abuse and that it’s not ok to accept toxicity and violence from anyone.

        Pitt is scared and you can see it in the way his people have attacked her throughout this whole ordeal. If he’s afraid enough to insist on the proceedings being sealed, you know it was bad. It wasn’t about protecting his children because he’s unapologetically trashed their mother and his eldest son publicly for years through his pr people and the press. I hope it all comes out.

    • sunhine says:

      I completely agree Keri. I feel like people are trying to make the situation more complex then it is. It has nothing to do with him being a
      sagittarius or not being into a domestic life anymore. He’s an addict who lost control like you said. It’s simple as that.

      We are told to leave a relationship when the it becomes violent or too much and she did exactly that. Someone above pointed out that she’s fighting for her kids voices and that’s important remember. Addiction is a family disease and it affects everyone. You just can’t downplay it as a mistake that happened a few years ago.. He might sober now but the affects still linger. It doesn’t help that Brad literally has a tattoo of a tank pointed at what used to be her initial. I wouldn’t feel comfortable with him around my kids either. I am sure that the kids (who are old enough to remember him in a belligerent state) dont appreciate that type of imagery either.

  35. Bethany Grey says:

    The fact is these two should never have married each other. They should have just shagged, had a wild affair and then split.
    I used to wonder how they stayed together that long because they seemed such opposites. The combined fame they generated probably had more meaning to them than the marriage itself. FHS they were doing parody movies on their relationship! Brad will have a lot of work to patch his relationship with his kids independent of his relationship with their mother, but if he wants to he will do so.
    I wish them both well 😀!
