According to Page Six, if Angelina Jolie had her druthers, the child army would be grabbing their Europe summer bags (they probably have pre-packed luggage for every season and continent at the ready) and headed to London to be with her while she films Maleficent 2. But no matter how many withering sighs (band name alert!) she utters, Angie can’t get around the rules of her ongoing custody battle with William Bradley Pitt. Us Weekly reports that Brad purposefully chose projects filming in Los Angeles and rearranged his summer schedule just so he can spend time with the kids.
Us Weekly says:
Brad wants certain provisions in a custody agreement that guarantee custodial time with all six kids.
Although Jolie recently purchased a home near her ex’s to make things easier for the children, a source tells Us that she “has been very hesitant to agree to Brad’s terms because she does resent him for essentially forcing her to settle down in Los Angeles with the kids.”
Page Six says Angie is really annoyed that she’s tethered to Los Angeles and the regular old earth that commoners walk on.
A source said that Jolie’s been so miffed by the situation, “Even the people around her are getting tired of it.”
Angelina Jolie? Tiresome? The Pitt-Jolie children have probably collectively logged more frequent flier miles than their mother has uttered withering sighs. If they collect refrigerator magnets like I do, they probably have an entire private jet hanger lined with the things. Would it be so bad for them to unpack all their clothes and just chill for a minute? I’m sure there is nothing London has to offer that those kids haven’t already seen or done a thousand times.
Angie doesn’t have to drag them along to work. They could stay in L.A. for a few months and maybe make some new friends, have sleepovers, get watches that only display one time zone, and maybe learn to swim or something. The kids are getting older now. Anything’s better than glamping in Namibia getting lectured to about trees and monarchs. They’d probably have a great time staying with dad in LA over the summer. They won’t have to fart into pillows like mom makes them. Brad probably lets them stay up late, watch cartoons, eat junk food and fart as loudly as they want!
