How Are Angelina Jolie And Kids Doing After Brad Pitt Split? Actress Breaks Silence
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie ended their two-year marriage and more than 10-year marriage last year after they announced their split. This week is the first time the actress talked about how she and the kids are doing. Jolie and her six children are all in Cambodia for the premiere of "First They Killed My Father."
The actress' latest flick, which she produced and directed, is about family and loss and she revealed with BBC that the Netflix original film focuses on the Cambodian genocide through the eyes of a child. The actress said the movie is dear to her heart since Cambodia is where she adopted her first child, Maddox, now 15, and she revealed without the country, she would not have become a mother.
CNN reported Jolie did not give a lot of details as to what really caused her split from Pitt but she said they are a family and they will always be a family, so she hopes they will get through the ordeal and come out as a stronger family after. Many sources said Pitt has drug and alcohol problem and the last time he got physical with their son Maddox was the tipping point for Jolie.
They were reportedly on their way home to Los Angeles when Maddox and Pitt got into an altercation on the plane and a day after, she filed for divorce. Pitt has since been cleared of child abuse claims.
Jolie also revealed she is undergoing what anyone would undergo when in the process of divorce. She was honest in telling the reporters she usually just gets through the day and the split has been very difficult, Us Weekly reported. For the kids, she shared, "Right now, I'm going through a moment when just everybody's in my room. Two dogs, two hamsters and two children at the moment. It's wonderful," Jolie said. "But, usually, I just wake up trying to figure out who's going to get [the] dog out, who's going to start the pancakes and did anybody brush their teeth."
Jolie has physical custody over Maddox, Pax, 13, Zahara, 12, Shiloh, 10, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 8. Pitt has monitored visits with his kids.
