Angelina Jolie recently claimed that she was quite afraid for the safety of her family when she was married to Brad Pitt. Incidentally, she had also been attacked by disgraced media mogul Harvey Weinstein in the early stages of her career. In an interview with The Guardian, the actress spoke about her divorce from Pitt, while promoting her book ‘Know Your Rights’.
She hesitated but claimed that she was still embroiled in her own legal situation, stating that her ex-husband had dealt in child abuse with their children. The actress mentioned that she was quite afraid during her marriage, which led to her allegations of child abuse on Pitt.
Angelina Jolie Claims Marriage With Brad Pitt Turned Traumatic
Further, Angelina Jolie clarified that she wasn’t someone who would make such allegations without looking at it from every angle. In her interview, she spoke about how troubling it was for her to remove Brad Pitt from his children- no matter how necessary it turned out to be for him. Pitt and Jolie have six children they share- Maddox, Pat, Zahara, Shiloh, Vivienne, and Knox. Since Maddox is no longer a minor, he isn’t involved in the custody battle taking place between their parents.
While Brad Pitt was cleared of every child abuse allegation which was made by the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services, Angelina Jolie still filed for divorce in 2016. Although the couple has been legally divorced now, they are still locked in a custody battle over their children.
The actor, known for his role in Inglourious Basterds as well as Fight Club was initially granted joint custody over the five minor children in May, but it was disqualified because the Judge didn’t adequately disclose the relationship he had with Pitt’s attorneys.
Another reason why Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s relationship went down was due to Pitt’s eagerness to work with Weinstein despite Jolie informing him of Weinstein’s sexual misbehavior.
