Apparently in the giant legal mess that is Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s ongoing custody battle for their six children, Brad has been playing the part of the saintly blonde angel who, up until recently, has been too busy strumming his tiny gold harp to engage in nastiness against his ex. But according to UsWeekly, he’s no longer known as Mr. Nice Guy.
When we last checked in on Brad and Angie’s custody battle, leaked court documents showed that she got a slap on the wrist from the judge and had been warned that it’s “critical” for the kids to have a healthy relationship with their father. The judge informed her that if she doesn’t let Brad spend more time with the kids, she could lose custody. Angelina’s rep later accused “someone” of leaking stories to create an “unfair” picture of the situation. If it sounds like Brad is playing dirty, an UsWeekly source says he is because he’s “very angry” at Angelina.
“Brad has taken the high road through all of this; he could have gone to court much sooner to ask the judge to intervene. He was done being Mr. Nice Guy and rolled the dice. The judge could have sided with Angie, but that didn’t happen. The judge made a thoughtful and informed decision that the children were in no danger while with Brad.”
That comment about being in danger around Brad stems from the original accusation that an allegedly drunk Brad got screamy and physical with Maddox on a private jet. Angelina appears to be easing off the idea of playing keep-away with the kids; on Sunday, Brad spent Father’s Day in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia with all six children.
For the past two years, Brad and Angelina have both appeared to be fighting like they share DNA with feral alley cats. I don’t think I was ever under the impression that Brad was playing nice. But if Nice Brad is gone, then hello Bad Brad. The difference being…I don’t know, clothing? Oh boy, any excuse to get into his old leather jackets and onto a motorcycle.
