One of the most saddening parts of two people getting a divorce is the loneliness of the kids. Of Brad Pitt and Angelina’s six children, it is reportedly Shiloh who’s taking her parents’ current situation the hardest. An insider told Hollywood Life that it’s difficult for her to take in what’s happening because she’s a daddy’s girl. She is reportedly begging the Maleficent actress to reunite with Brad.
“Shiloh is taking [the divorce] the hardest. She’s a daddy’s girl and she’s apparently upset with her mom for keeping them apart. Angelina is trying to explain that it’s for the best, but the kids don’t see it that way.”
Brad and Angelina have six children — Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 8. The site reports that they are confused about what’s happening between their parents. The source added that they’re all pleading Angelina to make things “normal” again.
After 12 years of being together, Angelina has filed for divorce last Sept. 19 because of “irreconcilable differences.” The Tomb Raider actress allegedly decided to part ways with her husband because she wanted to protect the children. Reports of the World War Z’s infidelity have similarly emerged, although many claim that such stories are inaccurate.
Different names of women, particularly Marion Cotillard, have surfaced when news of Brad and Angelina’s divorce broke. Angelina is allegedly jealous and upset that Brad told Marion about their marital problems. The two have worked together for Allied.
Marion, who is expecting her second child with partner Guillaume Canet, shunned the rumors that she’s one of the reasons behind Brad and Angelina’s divorce. The French actress said that she’s in love with the man of her life. She added that she respects Brad and Angelina and hope they “find peace in this very tumultuous moment.”
Us Magazine reveals that while Brad is pained that he’s being portrayed as the Bad Guy, he doesn’t really care because all he’s thinking of are the kids.
“He [Pitt] is beside himself and has been crying. He was completely caught off guard. Brad is in a mess right now. He isn’t able to see the kids and he is desperately trying to make sure they are OK by calling valued members of his and Angelina’s staff. He isn’t worried about his own reputation right now. His complete and utter devastation has come from what his children are going through.”
The two have agreed to the temporary custody agreement given by the Department of Children and Family Services. DCFS reportedly said that the couple could either agree to the terms or bring the fight into the court.
The agreement permits Brad to visit his kids as long as a therapist will come with him during the first one. The therapist will then determine if Brad may already be unaccompanied in his future visits. He should also present himself for random drug or alcohol testing. Another term raised in the agreement is that the couple will undergo individual counseling. Furthermore, the whole family will have a group counseling. Angelina did not object to the recommendations because her main priority is the family’s “healing.” DCFS’ agreement will last for three weeks.
Apart from being represented by “celebrity divorce lawyer” Laura Wasser, Angelina has also added two new accomplished trial lawyers to her team: Pierce O’Donnell and Bert Fields.
The Mr. and Mrs. Smith stars met in 2005 on the set of the action film. They tied the knot in 2014, admitting that they wanted to fulfill the wish of their children to witness an “actual ceremony.” Their wedding was attended by only 22 people. The Jolie-Pitt children contributed much to their parents’ wedding, with Pax even baking their cake.
