Brad Pitt's Parenting Styles Upset Angelina Jolie: Grounds For “Brangelina” Split
Why is Angelina Jolie ending "Brangelina"? Parenting styles! Yes, you've heard it right. Brad Pitt's parenting styles have been concluded to be the reason why Angeline Jolie filed a divorce with her husband of two years.
After two years of marriage, Angelina Jolie decided to file a divorce last Sept. 20, 2016, with husband Brad Pitt because of the style "Pitt was parenting the kids," adding that "she was extremely upset with his methods," a couple's close source told TMZ. The same source said that Jolie was "fed up" with Pitt's alcohol and drug vices, which a combination she thinks headed to an "anger problem."
Pitt's and Jolie's six kids - Maddox, 15; Pax, 12; Zahara, 11; Shilo, 10; and twins Vivienne and Knox, 8, were greatly included in separate statement of the couple regarding the divorce. "Angelina will always do what's in the best interest of taking care of her family," Geyer Kosinski, her longtime manager, told E! News. "She appreciates everyone's understanding of their need for privacy at this time," she added.
"I am very saddened by this, but what matters most now is the well-being of our kids," Pitt said in a statement released to People. "I kindly ask the press to give them the space they deserve during this challenging time," he continued.
Only last year, Brad Pitt confessed that he was stricter than wife Jolie on the kids. "I am (disciplinarian) with boys. Girls do no wrong, so I don't have to be," he said in a report in the Telegraph in November 2015. "I feel like my job is to show 'em around, help them find what they want to do with their life, put as many things in front of them, and pull them back when they get out of line, so they know who they are," he added.
While going back to 2012, Jolie said she has been always the tougher parent than Pitt. "I used to be the tougher parent but since the birth of the twins, Brad's had to play bad cop more often," Jolie said in a report via Inquisitr.
But today Jolie is seeking custody of her and Pitt's kids amidst statements she has become greatly concerned about the Hollywood star's strict parenting styles. She also demanded a judge to only give Pitt visitation rights.
