‘Scary Skinny’ Angelina Jolie Starving Herself During Nasty Split From Brad Pitt?

Angelina Jolie is going through a lot more than just her divorce with Brad Pitt.

In the weeks following the actress’s failed marriage, Jolie is struggling emotionally and can’t keep on weight. According to HNGN, the Tomb Raider star is down to 79 pounds as she continues to starve herself to death.

Jolie was spotted for the first time in public since the divorce and looked thinner than ever. Given her thin frame, many experts believe the actress might be seeking attention following the divorce with Pitt.

Indeed, Jolie’s appearance sparked multiple rumors about her health.

Some reports indicated that Jolie was refusing to eat because she is trying to garner attention for worldwide hunger, while others hint that stress from the divorce is causing her rapid decline. Whatever the cause, it is clear that Jolie is having trouble with her weight.

To make matters worse, Movie News Guide reports that Jolie is also suffering from panic attacks and depression, which aren’t helping the weight situation.

Jolie has been living in a rental home with her kids since announcing the split from Pitt. The actress is rarely spotted outside of the house and reportedly spends a good chunk of time pacing around and worrying about her children.

The stress got so bad that Jolie could barely even hold a glass of water without shaking.

After Jolie filed for divorce, MStars News reports she requested fully physical custody of the kids. Although she and Pitt have since agreed to a temporary arrangement, Jolie has been tasked with comforting the children in the wake of the split.

Jolie was married to Pitt for only two years before the breakup. The couple, who first started dating back in 2005, have six children together – Maddox, Zahara, Shiloh, Pax, and twins Knox and Vivienne.

Pitt has visited the children on several occasions since the split, but only after he agreed to attend counseling sessions and have a therapist present during the visits.

The World War Z star is currently under investigation for possible child abuse.

Prior to the divorce, witnesses claim that Pitt was abusive to his oldest son during a trip on a private jet. These reports have not been confirmed, though they have contributed greatly to all the rumors surrounding Pitt’s divorce.

While the divorce continues to turn nasty, close friends of Angelina Jolie are starting to worry about her health. She has lost so much weight that even her closest friends are encouraging her to seek help and start eating better.

This isn’t the first time Jolie has struggled with weight issues. Back in 2007, Jolie lost a lot of weight following the death of her mother.

At the time, rumors surfaced that Jolie was just trying to look thinner for the cameras, which she promptly dismissed. Instead, Jolie admitted that her mother’s death was the reason behind her rapid weight loss.


The actress has yet to address the latest rumors of weight loss, but based on the recent photos, the weight issues are back. In fact, sources close to Jolie revealed that she is surviving on a diet of grains and green tea.

There’s no telling if Jolie will seek treatment for her eating disorder, though fans can only hope that she turns things around before it’s too late. Considering how things have gone with the divorce, Jolie is going to need all the help she can get if she wants to get healthy once again.

That being said, Celeb Dirty Laundry is reporting that Jolie is losing weight because she wants attention.

Rumors have swirled that Jolie is trying to make Pitt look like the bad buy by spreading stories about his bad fathering. Now, it sounds like Jolie is losing weight so that fans will feel sorry for her and think that she’s going through a difficult time.

After all, Jolie hasn’t struggled with her weight since her mother’s passing and has a team of nannies to help deal with the children.

While Jolie wants everyone to take pity on her, there is a possibility that the weight issue is part of her smear campaign against Pitt.

Apart from child abuse, Pitt has faced reports of substance abuse in the wake of the divorce.

It isn’t clear if Jolie is actually behind the rumors, but they have damaged Pitt’s public image and might influence the divorce agreements. This is especially true when it comes to the custody arrangement.

Pitt, however, has denied all these rumors and maintains that he is a good father. Furthermore, little evidence has surfaced that indicates Pitt was abusive to the kids in the past.

Until more information is released, there’s no telling what is happening behind the scenes. The only thing that is certain is that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have a long road ahead of them until the divorce is finalized.
