The A list mostly movie actress who sometimes directs has used the past two years to make it seem as if she is the loving parent and her actor ex is awful and abusive.
Let us not forget that a decade ago, our actress was publicly called out for being verbally abusive towards her husband and her children on a regular basis.
No one seems to be adding that to the conversation.
Angelina Jolie is no longer the saint she set out to be
Angelina Jolie spent a good decade transforming her image from a wild child who wore vials of blood around her neck to a latter-day Mother Teresa, ministering to refugees and war-zone orphans. But St. Angie’s halo has well and truly slipped.
“It doesn’t matter how much charity work you do,” said a source with knowledge of the Jolie-Pitt family. “If you drive a wedge between a father and his children, you’re an a–hole.”
Over the past few weeks, Jolie, 43, and her lawyers have claimed that Pitt, 54, has failed to pay any “significant” support for their six children. (Pitt’s camp insists that the actor has paid out $9.3 million since the couple’s 2016 split.) Jolie has, as a Hollywood source close to the Jolie-Pitts told The Post, tried to paint her ex as a “deadbeat dad” and created a rift between the actor and his kids.
In court documents, Pitt’s lawyers called out Jolie and her lawyers for filing papers that are “calculated to increase the conflict” and are a “thinly veiled effort to manipulate media coverage.”
Just this month, she was playing mind games. Around August 1, Pitt asked Jolie, through lawyers, to end the marriage as soon as possible, even before the high-profile couple has worked out a custody schedule and financial agreement.
Through her team, Jolie asked her ex to wait a week to consider his request — then filed her own motion, requesting the exact same thing.
“Angelina filed with the judge to make it look like she wanted the early divorce before Brad [did],” said Los Angeles divorce attorney Peter Walzer, who has cases up against one of Jolie’s lawyers, Laura Wasser.
Some say it’s an act of revenge by Jolie, who was, of course, the first to make the public strike in the split. – Source
