Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt may be stitching up the gaping wounds they gave each other during their wreck of a custody fight, which has wrapped up (for now), but those damn sources are still talking and adding more layers of messiness to this tragic saga that already has more messy layers than me walking to my mailbox in 60 degree weather (moving back to California gave me lizard veins and skin, okay?). A source tells UsWeekly (via The Daily Mail) that Brad thinks his relationship with two of his sons, 17-year-old Maddox and 15-year-old Pax, is broken, and that could be from something Angie said to Pax. The source claims that Angie told Pax that Brad never wanted to adopt him. “Aaaah, I always knew that halo was a knock-off bought at a pawn shop and you were secretly one of us,” said Satan proudly to his fellow fallen angel Angie.
The source says that the fall of Brangelina almost happened when they adopted Pax. Brad thought it was a bad idea to adopt a 3-year-old child who didn’t know English just a year after Shiloh was born. Angie pushed to adopt Pax and said that he needed her more than Shiloh. Angie has supposedly never admitted the part she played that led to this 496-car train wreck:
“Brad never wanted to adopt Pax and was angry that she proceeded with the adoption. Angelina hasn’t offered any concessions about her actions that contributed to the situation. Angelina has a lot of emotional baggage from her own unstable childhood.”
UsWeekly says that Brad denies not wanting to adopt Pax.
The fly-on-the-wall that is UsWeekly also managed to crawl into the ears of Brangelina’s social workers to find out what they’re thinking. This is what the social workers think about Brad:
While Brad made huge strides ‘addressing his anger and psychological issues’, one social worker ‘felt he had trouble accepting personal responsibility and often blames others for his actions.’
And about Angie:
Angelina meanwhile was allegedly chastised ‘for indulging the kids all the time and creating an unstable living environment.’
One case worker reportedly believed she was was currying favor with kids, and that it hurt Brad’s relationship with his kids; ‘but the worker didn’t think Angie was trying to actively sabotage the relationship.’
Partly because of that plane rage scene, Brad’s relationship with Maddox isn’t great, and he doesn’t think things will ever be repaired. Shiloh supposedly wants a relationship with her father, and Zahara is coming around. The Chosen Twins, Vivienne and Knox, have been kept away from a lot of the drama.
This shit doesn’t make either of them look like Parent of the Year, but if Angie really told Pax that Brad never wanted to adopt him, then she should expect an icy gust of wind to hit her icy body and that’s from the ghost of Joan Crawford bowing down to a true diabolical mother queen. And if I was Pax and my mom said that to me, I’d go, “Errr, I’m 15 and I’m the one who is supposed to say hateful shit like ‘I wish my dad never adopted me’ and my teenage hormones would be to blame. What’s your excuse?”
