As things heat up between Angelina Jolie and her estranged husband, Brad Pitt, in the courtroom over their six children, it seems that Jennifer Aniston is picking sides.
With rumors swirling that because of some of Jolie’s actions she might lose custody of her kids — Maddox, Shiloh, Zahara, Vivienne, Pax, and Knox — Aniston has decided to back her ex-husband, Pitt.
A source told Hollywood Life that Aniston’s heart is aching for the father of six who is missing out on his clan’s lives.
The actress finds that Pitt is a great father and hopes that he will be part of his children’s lives.
The pal told the media outlet: “Jen is feeling horrible for the fight Brad is involved in over custody of the kids with Angelina. Jen can’t imagine what it must be like to fight with someone as powerful as Angelina over your own kids. Knowing Brad as well as she does, Jen is in agony over the pain Brad must be going through fighting with his ex just to be with his own kids. Jen thinks it is shameful that Angelina cannot be more mature, put the kids’ needs first, and compromise with Brad on this critical decision.”
A second person said that Jolie is living in fear of her children slipping away and added: “Angelina is beginning to fear her choices may actually hurt her custody battle with Brad. Angelina loves her kids more than anything in the world, and that is why she has been fighting so hard for custody. It was a long, challenging journey to adopt some of her kids and it would be her nightmare if she lost custody of them.”
The source went on to say: “Now that the fight continues to drag on, Angelina is starting to feel like maybe she is holding on too tightly to the kids. Her children are like her best friends, and she can’t imagine life without them by her side every day. Even though Angie’s mind is telling her to ease up on her battle with Brad for custody, her heart won’t let her do anything less than fight with every ounce of energy she has.”
Fans are feeling that peace is unlikely between the former couple.
