The actor of “Troy,” Brad Pitt, was upset when his wife unexpectedly served him divorce documents before their second wedding anniversary.
After the couple’s messy custody dispute following their divorce, Pitt was awarded shared custody of their six children last year.
They divorced after Jolie recently made startling revelations.
Although the information wounded Pitt, he is still dedicated to seeing their children again.
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were once a significant pair, but their union did not last longer than two years.
They had six children together throughout their more than ten-year partnership, some of whom may no longer be in contact with Pitt in the event of their divorce. According to an insider close to the “The Lost City” actor, his ex-wife has been out for blood since their divorce.

Jolie most recently claimed in a countersuit that her spouse had physically abused her and their children in 2016. Investigations showed little proof of the attack on the plane, despite the authorities’ refusal to pursue charges.
But Jolie continued to make claims anyway, so it was insufficient to halt her. She went to a family court, declared Pitt, an unfit parent, and asked that he not be considered for the custody agreement. The judge rejected her plea once more. The decision instead mandated shared custody of their children.

According to the source, she has managed to turn their children against their father by using her strategies to capture them somehow. Sadly, they are all now at odds with him.
According to the source, Pitt, who is extremely hurt by the continuous criticism, never attempted to malign his ex-wife. The informant claims that he has stayed silent due to their children.

When the family court granted them equal possession just last year, Pitt was jubilant.
But these most recent allegations, which emerged on Tuesday after he sued Jolie for breaking a property deal, have sparked new hostility. Despite this setback, the father of six is still determined to reunite with his children.

According to sources, Pitt loves his children beyond measure, and nothing can stand in the way.
Fatherhood with the Clan
Jolie and Pitt were the most popular pair in Hollywood. Following their co-starring role in the espionage thriller “Mr. and Mrs. Smith,” their romance blossomed. But the couple welcomed their six children, both biological and adopted, years before they got married.
Jolie’s accusation-making has not abated. The actress revealed last year that she would back up her claims of violence from her ex-husband.

Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Maddox, and their younger children, Knox and Vivienne, make up their large family. They were incredibly pleased to raise their children during their time together as a couple.
According to a close source, the pair was busy but did not dislike taking care of their rapidly expanding family. Sadly, after the actress filed for divorce in 2016, rifts started appearing in this exemplary family.
A few weeks from their anniversary, they had only been married for two years. Pitt would only have visitation privileges, and the “Maleficent” actress would have full bodily custody of their children, citing irreconcilable differences.

The couple has been embroiled in an unending custody dispute, even though she never requested alimony or child support. Jolie stated at the moment that the choice was best for the family.
Fans of the couple, who cherished their long-standing relationship, found this news unbelievable. Her ex-husband found the outcome even more surprising, which made it even more shocking.

Pitt was upset after hearing the news, but his response showed how much he also loved their children.
He said: “This very saddens me, but what matters most now is the well-being of our kids. I kindly ask the press to give them the space they deserve during this challenging time.”
The actress initially declined to discuss the divorce’s cause. Still, she later said that an incident that occurred in 2016 on a private family flight ultimately motivated her to take action.

Pitt had attacked Jolie and their son, Maddox, while they were traveling from France to the US, Jolie disclosed in her statement.
Jolie persevered in insisting that she had proof, even after the authorities exonerated Pitt because there was no proof of abuse. Contrary to what an insider claimed, “nothing inappropriate happened” that day; rather, there was a “child-parent disagreement.”

Pitt has spent the last five to six years defending their children and preserving his innocence. Even after being given shared custody, Jolie is adamant about filing a lawsuit to have him stripped of the custody privilege.
Jolie’s Recent Claims
Jolie’s accusation-making has not abated. The performer stated that she would back up her claim that her ex-husband had abused her last year.

According to an insider, the “Maleficent” actress has made repeated allegations while altering her version of events. “Brad is heartbroken it has come to this. Those around him feel Angelina claims to sway the court in her favor. Brad has never attacked her.”
The source added, “Brad is anxious to get custody worked out so the family can finally move on. He just wants to spend time with his children and move positively. His priority has always been his relationship with his children.”

Despite the challenging circumstances, Pitt tries to be with his children wherever they may be.
For instance, the 58-year-old flew to Italy for his twins’ birthdays and lavishly celebrated Shiloh’s 16th birthday.
Pitt’s parenting skills are still being questioned, though, as his ex-wife frequently makes shocking disclosures. Jolie specifically referred to the particulars of the 2016 trip in her countersuit on Tuesday.

Before they got to the airport, she alleged Pitt started yelling at one of their children. They argued until they boarded the aircraft, which prompted the actress to inquire why.
Jolie claimed that he verbally attacked her before “pulling” her into the restroom without explaining. The children began to weep as a result of their fear.

Again, denying the allegations, Pitt’s spokesperson added that Jolie’s narrative had changed previously and that the new information was “completely untrue.”
According to a close friend of the actor, Pitt has been refusing to budge because he wants to spend time with their children, and Jolie wants to “inflict pain” on him.
