In a swing of events, Brad Pitt has turned things after his wife, actress Angelina Jolie, who filed for divorce five days ago. Pitt is down to saying that Jolie is a liar in claiming that he has drugs and alcohol issues.
TMZ broke the story about Jolie filing for divorce due to an irreconcilable difference. She also noted that Pitt’s alcohol and weed problems have posed danger to their children. Jolie added that Pitt has some anger management problems that he need to deal with. But Pitt says the reasons are total BS, saying those days’ were past him the day he became a father to their six children.
A source close to Pitt stated that the 52-year-old actor is a loving and devoted father and husband to his family. The source added that things said about Pitt are all “malicious lies” as he would never put his children or his family in danger. However, the source did not discuss the weed and alcohol problems, which were the main sources of the issue.
With all the media attention on their family, Pitt is “furious” and stressed that Jolie has put the lives of their children at risk. He explained that they could have discussed the divorce issues like matured adults but she turned it into a media frenzy. Pitt added that their children are now exposed to the paparazzi who are out to get a photo of them at all cost.
Pitt also dismissed rumors linking him to “Allied” co-star Marion Cotillard as the reason for the divorce. Jolie has also admitted that there is no third-party involved in their marital issues. Pitt’s main concern now is the safety of their children.
Officers from the LAPD are now roving the perimeter of the family’s Hollywood Hills’ home to secure the kids from photographers and media. Pitt quoted to have stated that by going public about their divorce, she “just unleashed Hell!”
It seems Pitt will battle it out with Jolie in court for custody of their children as the 41-year old actress is asking for sole custody. Aside from custody, Jolie is willing to grant Pitt visiting rights to see their children namely Maddox and Pax, Zahara, who are all adopted, and biological children Shiloh and twins Knox and Vivienne.
Pitt is angry at Jolie for putting the kids at risk and hopes that people would spare the kids’ privacy so as not to traumatize them in the end. So where is the risky dad there?
