According to the tabloid The Sun, the bitter custody battle between Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt has only gotten worse with Jolie reportedly banning Pitt’s former wife, Jennifer Aniston from seeing their children.
Apparently, Jolie is “infuriated” that Pitt and Aniston have been spending so much time together following their reunion at the Screen Actors’ Guild Awards recently.
According to actor Angelina Jolie, the judge overseeing her divorce proceedings with Brad Pitt has vested financial interests with Pitt’s lawyer and hence, she has asked him to removed citing conflict of interest.
Pitt, naturally, is not too happy with this considering that their custody battle has gone on for years and they were finally on the verge of resolving things amicably. “Brad says Angelina has gone way too far this time…He’s left with no other option but to dig in and fight back—hard,” US Weekly quoted a source as saying.
“The individuals hurt most by Jolie’s transparently tactical gambit are the parties’ own children, who continue to be deprived of a final resolution to these custody issues,” Pitt’s lawyers said in a statement.
Now, the actress has said that the five years that she has been separated from Brad Pitt “have been pretty hard”. Brangelina have six children together – Maddox, 19, Pax, then 16, Zahara, then 15, Shiloh, 14, and 12-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox.
In an interview with British Vogue, the actress also said that her home is about five minutes away from Brad Pitt. “I wanted it to be close to their dad, who is only five minutes away. I felt a little pressure moving in. Like I had snuck into where DeMille and Chaplin would hang out. I love most that there is no entertainment room, but lots of pathways and places to walk and think. I feel very fortunate we have that at this time,” she said.
