Does Angelina Jolie have proof Brad Pitt is abusive?
Who knew such a hot couple would have such an unattractive ending? Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt certainly didn’t when they got together in 2005. The two had a passionate beginning which would fuel controversy for the next fourteen years of their relationship.
The only thing more gossip-worthy was the series of troubling events leading up to and following their messy divorce. Allegations of abuse were thrown around and public animosity found the perfect target in the woman they saw as a wicked homewrecker.
For some, they started out as #couplegoals. For others, they started out as a product of a good woman’s heartbreak. Regardless, it was Jolie’s accusations of abuse toward Pitt that eventually saw their relationship crash and burn. Jolie may now have proof to back up her allegations against Pitt.
The glitz of Hollywood shines as brightly as new love. It gives people hope. It reminds them of the beautiful possibilities of life. It also can be faked. It can allude to a brightness that doesn’t really go any further than what you see (or think you see) on the surface.
At the height of their whirlwind romance, Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt were the epitome of true love. Pitt’s name had recently been in the headlines as his relationship with Friends star Jennifer Aniston seemed to be meeting a sad ending. Jolie was transforming before our eyes from a bad girl to a good woman.
They seemed to be meeting a point of pivotal change in both their lives. Aniston fans would spend years antagonizing Jolie for allegedly being a homewrecker. The same fans also speculate about how Pitt could’ve been led astray by Jolie’s charms. The couple persevered through the negativity to build a family with each other.
All those kids
In their younger years, Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt were on similar paths. They were both known as laid-back people and neither was afraid to go their own way. As they got older, this translated into an increased awareness of and presence with international humanitarian work.
However, they weren’t just interested in helping others. They were also interested in raising a family – at least, Jolie was. In 2002, she adopted her son Maddox from Cambodia when he was six months old. Then, in 2005, she adopted her daughter Zahara from Ethiopia when she was four months old. Pitt would later adopt them as well after they started dating.
In 2007, they both adopted Pax from Vietnam when he was four years old. As if three children wasn’t enough, they added three more to the happy bunch. For all of the happy photos, however, it turns out the family unit was starting to crack from the pressures within.
It’s always sad when relationships end. If the participants are lucky, they do so amicably. If they’re not, it’s messy in all the worse ways and even more so when they’re in the public eye. Gossip around failed relationships between celebrities generates good money because, like mayo, it’s easy to spread and almost everybody wants some.
In 2016, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt sent shockwaves through fans after an emergency landing at an airport in Los Angeles. They had allegedly gotten into an argument with their kids present. According to witnesses, the argument quickly escalated into Pitt putting his hands on Jolie and then Maddox after he stepped between them.
The relationship eventually spiraled into a whirlwind of he-say/she-say with their teams pointing fingers at one or the other. Jolie’s team claimed Pitt was an alcoholic abuser. Pitt’s team claimed Jolie was a manipulative liar. In the meantime, the general public was split between blaming her or worrying about the kids.
In the pudding
By April 2019, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt were officially divorced. Jolie continued to be most active in her humanitarian work and being part of her kids’ lives. Pitt continued in his acting career and went on to find work despite the allegations against him.
The drama was just starting to die down until recently. An anonymous complaint of spousal abuse has been confirmed as having come from Jolie. If this is true, it’s a massive violation of her right to privacy and shouldn’t be allowed just because she’s famous.
In the midst of the chaos, it’s probably just as revealing that their kids are rarely if ever seen with Pitt. Even when they have the choice, they spend much more time with their mom. What this or the complaint says of Jolie’s allegations, at least her being so close to her kids gives us cute videos of her seeing them off to college.
