And here we go again, Angelina Jolie and her estranged husband, Brad Pitt, have found another reason to fight — this time around — it has to do with a big movie and their children.
A judge recently confirmed that Jolie is not letting her children — Maddox, 16, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, and 9-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox — spend enough time with their father.
Pitt retaliated by denying Jolie’s request to have their daughter, Shiloh, and son, Knox, appear in her upcoming movie, Maleficent 2.
The activist and humanitarian is currently in England where she is filming Maleficent 2 with Elle Fanning and Michelle Pfeiffer (see pictures below).
According to Us Weekly, that is not all Mr. Pitt did to anger Jolie, he also changed her vacation plans so the children cannot be in London with their mother as she films.
A source told the magazine: “He refuses to sign off her plan to include Shiloh and Knox in Maleficent 2. The kids are being used as pawns. They are not on good terms and are less than civil.”
However, Jolie’s attorney is singing another tune in a statement that read: “From the start, Angelina has been focused only on their health and needs, which is why it was so important that this last court hearing is conducted privately. It’s deplorable that someone, for their own selfish reasons, leaked selective portions of the confidential and sealed court record to create an inaccurate and unfair picture of what is really happening.”
One fan reacted to the story by saying: “You know nothing about their father. Maybe he is a terrible one. In fact, this is the only one reason for their divorce that we know from the press.”
Another commenter stated: “I have my opinion of what she did removing Brad from their life. Any good mom does not do that. She and Brad both have security guards, give him his time supervised then. Do you have parents or crawl out from a hole in the ground. You are the one off base.”
A third person shared: “She is doing it for cameras. Terrible lady to take their dad out of their lives.”
Fans are hoping they work things out for the children.
