As Angelina Jolie continues to hide out in Los Angeles as her divorce and custody battle plays out, a report has hit the web, claiming the 41-year-old actress has been faced with panic attacks.
A year and a half after Jolie discovered early signs of cancer and months after rumors surfaced of possible anorexia, she is reportedly facing yet another health crisis.
According to a report by New Idea, via Yahoo! Lifestyle on October 13, Angelina Jolie has been suffering from daily panic attacks and is now said to be down to just “41kg,” which translates into just over 90 pounds. All the while, sources claim she’s barricaded herself and her children in Malibu with her brother, James Haven.

As the report revealed, this didn’t go over well with Angelina Jolie’s children, who are used to being much more active throughout the day.
“They didn’t leave the rental house for days. It was hard for all of them,” the source explained. “They are used to more activities and more entertainment, so it’s difficult for them to just stay at the house — the younger kids don’t really understand.”
Now, to “stay strong” for her kids with Pitt, Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and Vivienne and Knox, 8, Angelina Jolie has entered into family therapy.
Angelina Jolie filed for divorce last month of 2 years of marriage with Pitt and in the weeks that have followed, they have continued to battle for the custody of their children. However, because Pitt was targeted by a child abuse investigation just a short time after Angelina Jolie’s divorce filing, Jolie was given temporary full physical custody of their kids.

In addition to claims of panic attacks and weight loss, Angelina Jolie has made headlines recently after Us Weekly revealed she had undergone major surgery just last year after learning she had shown early signs of cancer.
“I went through what I imagine thousands of other women have felt,” Angelina Jolie wrote in a piece for The New York Times at the time. “I told myself to stay calm, to be strong, and that I had no reason to think I wouldn’t live to see my children grow up and to meet my grandchildren.”
Angelina Jolie decided to have her ovaries and fallopian tubes removed in March of last year, just months after she and Pitt tied the knot. Years prior, Angelina Jolie underwent a double mastectomy to eliminate the possibility of breast cancer. As a result of the removal of her ovaries and fallopian tubes, Jolie will no longer be able to have children and will likely undergo many physical changes, but according to the actress, she felt “at ease” after the procedure took place.
“I will not be able to have any more children, and I expect some physical changes, but I feel at ease with whatever will come, not because I am strong but because this is a part of life. It is nothing to be feared,” she wrote.
Angelina Jolie was also faced with rumors of being anorexic earlier this year after shocking photos of her hit the web. In April, News Everyday shared details of a report claiming that Jolie may lose her life due to her battle with the eating disorder. The source also claimed at the time that Angelina Jolie had been suffering from headaches and paranoia as Pitt continued to encourage her to get healthy.
