Angelina Jolie is pulling out all of the stops when it comes to her disastrous divorce with Brad Pitt. The Maleficent star is currently fighting Pitt for custody of their six children, and insiders claim the actress is starving herself just to make Pitt look bad. Will Jolie’s sympathy plan work out or backfire on her?
Jolie originally filed for divorce back in the fall of 2016. Jolie appeared to have the upper the hand early in the split, but Pitt recently won a major victory when a judge awarded him more access to the kids. With the divorce turning in Pitt’s favor, sources claim that Jolie is taking desperate measures to get the public back on her side.

According to International Business Times, one insider claims that Jolie has stopped eating to gain sympathy with the public and make Pitt look bad. The actress is allegedly in bad shape and is only surviving off berries, nuts, coffee, and water infused with lemon. Although she is slowly wasting away, Jolie hopes that starving herself will send a clear message to her ex-husband.
“She’s starving herself to essentially say to the world, ‘Look at what Brad’s done to me,’” the insider dished, adding that Jolie is behaving like she is an addict.

Starving herself is not the only weapon in Jolie’s arsenal. The actress has been actively taking photos with her kids to prove how happy they are with their mom. But when the cameras aren’t rolling, insiders claim that the kiddos miss their father. Unfortunately, Jolie refuses to allow them to see Pitt on a regular basis, at least according to the insiders.
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have not addressed the rumors surrounding their divorce. The two were together for over a decade and tied the knot in 2014. They share six children together: Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Vivienne and Knox.
