The fans were shaken when Angelina Jolie filed for divorce with Brad Pitt, back in September 2016. It was a dark time for the whole family and they’re all recovering. “It’s been the hardest time, and we’re just kind of coming up for air”, Jolie said.
Angelina reportedly filed for divorce after a spat between Brad and her eldest son, Maddox. She even called Child Protective Services on the Fight Club star. She wished to keep custody of all her children and allow only visiting rights to Brad.
Angelina Jolie Confesses Crying in the Shower
Time and again, Jolie has proved that she is a great mother. Like all moms, she wants to shield her children from any kind of pain. Opening up to Vanity Fair, she confesses, “I do not want my children to be worried about me. I think it’s important to cry in the shower and not in front of them. They need to know that everything’s going to be alright even when you’re not sure it is.”
However, she acknowledges that all her kids are super brave. “They’re six very strong-minded, thoughtful, worldly individuals. I’m very proud of them.”
Are they still a Family?
People have been speculating the reasons behind Mr. and Mrs. Smith‘s separation. Some even suspect their lifestyles to have played a role in it. But both Pitt and Jolie dismiss any such allegations. “Our lifestyle was not in any way a negative. That was not the problem. this is and will remain one of the wonderful opportunities we can give our children”, Jolie said.
They opted for a private lawyer for divorce to keep their matter to themselves. It was a wise decision on their part, considering they have six children. Both Pitt and Jolie care deeply for their children and they will always remain a family.
In a BBC interview, Jolie stated, “We’ll always be a family and get through this time and hopefully be a stronger family.”
