Angelina Jolie, allegedly, pretended to have an amicable relationship with Brad Pitt because she thought this would give her leverage.
According to Globe, Angelina Jolie was determined to win in her custody battle against Pitt. As such, she tried to be nice to her ex-husband. However, things didn’t work out for the exes yet again.
“She did it because she thought it would work in her favor. Now, she’s turned the tables again. When she filed for divorce four years ago, she vowed to make him pay, and that’s still her main objective here,” the source said.
Angelina Jolie makes a shocking request in custody case
Earlier this month, Jolie requested Judge John W. Ouderkirk to be removed from her and Pitt’s custody battle. Her lawyer said that the actress just wants a fair trial.
As such, the Maleficent: Mistress of Evil star is requesting a new judge to be assigned on their case.
A source told the tabloid that Jolie doesn’t seem to realize that what she’s been requesting is also unfair for Pitt.
“Some may say that’s not exactly playing fair either, but Angie doesn’t see it that way. She means to win,” the source said.
Angelina Jolie allegedly knows she could lose custody of her kids
The source also said that Angelina Jolie is keen on having Ouderkirk removed because she has a feeling that Pitt will win the case.
“Things haven’t been going her way even though she’s budged on everything having to do with money and custody. Now, she’s found a link tracing back to Brad’s camp and she’s calling foul,” the source said.
Brangelina not giving up on their children
Pitt, allegedly, continues to fight to keep Ouderkirk in the case. But Jolie isn’t giving up either.
“Brad’s fighting to keep the judge on board. He thinks Angie’s desperate and willing to do anything to trip him up because she’s backed up against the wall. She starts finding fault with the people they’re dealing with instead of looking for a compromise,” the source said.
Jennifer Aniston allegedly banned from seeing Brangelina’s kids
In March, rumors swirled that Jolie has been trying to take control of the custody of her children. Woman’s Day claimed that she banned Jennifer Aniston from seeing her and Pitt’s kids.
To add insult to injury, Jolie, allegedly, filed for a new child custody evaluation against Pitt to make sure that he’s fit to take care of their children.
While it is true that Angelina Jolie filed for a child custody evaluation earlier this year, she didn’t ban Aniston from seeing her children.
