As the divorce process marches on, Angelina Jolie is hit with a lot of guilt and a feeling of hopelessness because of what the children whom she shares with Brad Pitt are going through.
It is a well-established fact that when adults for whatever reason split, the children from that relationship suffer the most.
There is the heartache of no longer seeing one of the parents as often as before. There is also the drama that they have to live through as the parents quarrel, fight, and blame each other during the process.
When it comes to celebrity children, a divorce process might even be more dramatic because the world is watching them as they go through a private and traumatizing situation.
Court documents showed that Jolie and Pitt’s children — Maddox, 17, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12 and twins Vivienne and Knox, 10 — have been seeing therapists to help them cope with the split.
A source close to the actress and humanitarian said that she is spending a lot of time and money to make up for the hellish predicament that the children are currently in.
The insider said: “Angelina’s kids are everything to her; their wellbeing is her top priority. She loves them all dearly. Since the divorce, she has felt guilty about the trauma the kids are dealing with, so she has doubled her efforts to make them happy. So yes, there have been lots of new clothes, trips to the toy shops and amusement parks. But it’s got nothing to do with her trying to turn them against Brad; it’s all about making life a little brighter for them during a tough time in all their lives.”
The person went on to reveal some of the sweet things she has been doing to make their lives as normal as possible.
The source also claimed that Jolie is spending a lot of money to spoil her children to make them happy and it is not related to Pitt.
The insider explained: “This divorce has been hell for everyone, and it’s disrupted so much in all their lives. But, Angelina’s doing all she can to make things as normal as possible for her kids again. Getting out and doing the simple things with them, like hiking, going for ice cream or hitting up the toy store, is the sort of stuff they’ve always loved to do and Angelina’s determined they’re not going to miss out.”
In the past weeks, Jolie has been spotted on shopping trips and ice cream dates with her little clan.
