Family Member Says Angelina Jolie Is In 'Agony' Over Brad Pitt Divorce
The actress is reportedly in "agony" after filing for divorce from the Hollywood hunk who she has six kids with.
A family member told People,
Her family is broken and she is in agony. Her children are recovering from the events that brought about the filing of the divorce. Her focus is on their health and emotional well-being.
The Brangelina aftermath is messy.
Their relationship has been marred by rumors and reports of alleged child abuse by Pitt.
The LAPD has released a statement confirming it is “not handling any reports or allegations into child abuse for Mr. Brad Pitt.”
And the LA County Department of Children and Family Services added it would never comment on cases involving minors.
But there are reports of footage that has emerged purporting to show Pitt arguing with his teenage son, Maddox, in what appears to be a violent manner.
The video was allegedly taken on the tarmac after an incident on the couple's private jet.
Pitt released a statement in the immediate aftermath of divorce filing outlining his concern for the wellbeing of his children.
I am very saddened by this, but what matters most now is the well-being of our kids. I kindly ask the press to give them the space they deserve during this challenging time.
The couple announced the end of their two-year marriage and 12-year relationship on Tuesday.
Following the initial divorce report from TMZ, Angelina's attorney released a statement. The statement read,
This decision was made for the health of the family. She will not be commenting at this time, and asks that the family be given their privacy during this difficult time.
RIP love and happiness.
