Latest developments in the Angelina Jolie-Brad Pitt divorce reveal that the couple allegedly clashed over parenting styles. The mom-of-six has filed for sole physical custody of the kids while allowing Brad Pitt visitation rights.
The "Allied" star, however, is reportedly going to contest this, which could mean that the Jolie-Pitts are in for a tough custody battle. Previous interviews of Brangelina as parents didn't hint of any clash in parenting at all.
Angeline Jolie's filing of sole physical custody with visitation rights versus joint custody suggests that the Hollywood mom doesn't want her children to be with their father for very long hours. "If she is seeking sole physical custody, as reported, she is seeking to have the children reside primarily with her," divorce attorney Jonathan Wolfe said, via Yahoo.
It seems to uphold speculations that Brad Pitt's parenting style was harming the Jolie-Pitt children, hence Angelina Jolie doesn't want them exposed to this as much. Wolfe also cites that had Jolie filed for joint custody, this means that both parents will have equal time with the kids.
New York Magazine enumerates that Brad Pitt was allegedly strict with their six kids: Maddox (15), Pax (12), Zahara (11), Shiloh (10) and eight-year-old twins Knox and Viviene. The report also suggests that Brad Pitt has anger issues and substance abuse problems, causing more family tension when he yells at his children.
If Brangelina did clash over parenting styles, then the tension would be higher as the children enter their adolescent years. "Jolie and Pitt now have children who will want to have more control over their own lives," Family Therapist Darby Fox wrote, Fox News quoted.
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's previous interviews regarding the way they parent their children, however, do not indicate any clashes in parenting styles. E! News notes that Brangelina as parents actually complemented each other, based in their own words. "He is much cooler and calmer...I can be more impulsive and outspoken," Angelina Jolie told the E! in a previous interview.
TMZ reports that Brad Pitt might not accept the sole physical custody petition his wife has filed because he's aiming for joint custody. A source disclosed that speculations about his parenting style are untrue. "He's a loving and devoted father who has never and would never put his children in any dangerous situation," the source revealed, as per another TMZ report.
