Angelina Jolie And Brad Pitt On The Verge Of Divorce? Competing Careers Reportedly To Blame

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have been plagued with divorce rumors over the past few months. From Jolie’s struggles with weight to Pitt’s reported affairs, the two appear on the verge of a major split. Most recently, their competing careers are to blame for their problems. Will this prove the final straw?

An inside source recently told Radar Online that Jolie and Pitt cannot agree on whose career is more important to pursue. While Jolie continues to chase her sputtering directing career, Pitt is ready to move forward with his own projects.

“This is tearing them apart, but Brad’s got no choice. He’s done more than enough to help her directing career, even risking his own reputation in her schmaltzy flop By the Sea, and now it’s time to get back to work.”

Unfortunately, Jolie and Pitt have a strict rule that one of them has to stay with the kids while the other works. With both of them currently active in new projects, they have strayed away from that rule. Not only has this put strain on their kids, but it also led to arguments that threaten to derail their marriage. “They’re at war over who’s looking after the kids since that agreement got blown out the window with her desire to turn her directing career into a success after several failures,” the source explained.

Pitt has a number of projects on his plate, including War Machine and the sequel to World War Z.

“He’s madly pitching for War Machine to get into Cannes and has hopes it could be a favorite for awards season next year,” the insider stated. “He’s also about to start filming the WWZ sequel, but all of this is not sitting well with his wife.”

In the midst of the break-up rumors, International Business Times is reporting that Jolie and Pitt have already separated. In the latest issue of Life & Style magazine, an inside source revealed that Pitt has reached the end of his rope and is ready to file for divorce.

Apparently, Jolie is envious of Pitt’s relationship with his fellow Allied star and her impressive resume in the movie industry.

“She’s exactly the kind of sultry European actress that Angie has always wanted to be and she’s playing exactly the kind of role Angie’s always wanted to play,” the insider said. “Adding to the jealousy is the fact that Marion has one thing Angelina hasn’t achieved in her acting career: Oscar for best actress.”

That being said, Gossip Cop is reporting that Jolie and Pitt are not feuding about their respective careers in Hollywood. Indeed, Pitt did travel to Cambodia with the kids while Jolie filmed her upcoming movie. Jolie returned the favor and traveled to London for Pitt’s new film, Five Seconds of Silence, which indicates they have worked out how to juggle their careers and family responsibilities.

Neither Jolie nor Pitt has addressed the rumors of a split. Considering the reports of competing careers, it will be interesting to see how they handle the next few months, especially with both of them working on new projects simultaneously.
