Candies, toys, and shopping sprees; Angelina Jolie is doing everything in her power to win her children over and subsequently turn them against their father, Brad Pitt.
As the bitter divorce between Jolie and her estranged husband rages on, she has rapidly captured the hearts of her oldest sons — Maddox, 17, and Pax, 14.
Now, she is showering her daughters — Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, and 10-year-old twins Vivienne and son Knox.
A source spoke to In Touch and explained: “Now she’s trying to get the four youngest, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, and 10-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox on her side. She wants all the kids to tell the judge they want to live with her. She’s begging them, “Choose me!”
The family friend continued: “If they ask to go shopping, they go shopping. If they want to go hiking, they go hiking. She’s trying her hardest to spoil them. She’ll resort to any dirty trick to make sure she gets custody.”
It had been previously reported that the bond between Maddox and Jolie has never been so strong.
A person told Hollywood Life: “Angelina’s relationship with Maddox has never been stronger, they’ve always had a special connection, but since the divorce, their bond has only strengthened. They rely on each other. He’s always been wise beyond his years, but since her split with Brad, he’s proven his maturity and wisdom is much greater than that of the average 17-year-old,”
The source went on to say that the teen is going above and beyond to be helpful to his mother and siblings.
The pal stated: “Maddox has gone above and beyond to help out with the younger kids. He has Angelina’s blessing to do the teenage thing and take off with his friends, but instead, he sticks around to be with her and his brothers and sisters. It’s amazing how selfless he is; he definitely isn’t the average teenager. He’s one of Angeline’s greatest sources of pride and strength; she lights up whenever she talks about him.”
With moves like that, Jolie and Pitt will be going at it for a long time.
