A Source Close To Brad Pitt Was “Surprised” That Angelina Jolie Would Drag Their Kids Into That Vanity Fair Article
I hope there’s still room left on Angelina Jolie’s list of people who don’t like her at the moment, because she’s got another name to add. And this name is one that’s no stranger to said list. It’s Brad Pitt, and a source close to him is strongly implying that he wasn’t thrilled that Angelina would get their kids involved in that turning-into-a-giant-mess of an article for Vanity Fair.
During the article, Angelina spoke of her split from Brad. That’s fine, Angelina’s drama, Angelina’s choices. She also grabbed the spotlight and shone it on some of her six kids by talking about how “brave” they’ve all been during the messiness of their parents’ split, and how they’re all “healing.” A family friend tells Entertainment Tonight that they were a little surprised Angelina would talk so publicly about the child army’s personal life.
“It’s surprising that Angelina would use the children to help herself in the story, especially after years where both were dedicated to protecting their privacy,” the family friend told ET on Friday.
So basically we’re still in Brad vs. Angelina limbo here, and it’s still being served with a side of passive-aggression.
The source says that Brad’s first priority has always been the children and their privacy, and that Brad refuses to speak publicly about them. Back in May when Brad was blabbing to GQ Style about his and Angelina’s split, he spoke a little about the child army. He didn’t get into specifics, but it’s not exactly like he pulled a “No comment” on questions about their custody drama.
This is not the first time someone who is clearly on Team Brad has accused Angelina of violating the kids’ privacy for the sake of a quick hit of publicity. And I’m sure it won’t be the last. A big part of Angelina’s brand is the child army, so to take away her ability to gab about her kids would leave her with, what – cheekbones? Kissing her brother? Humanitarian work? Wait, that last one might be on hold at the moment.
