Angelina Jolie has, reportedly, started selling some of her paintings at home.
According to Star, Angelina Jolie has also sold some of the paintings that were given to her by Brad Pitt. And this, allegedly, hurt her ex-husband’s feelings.
A source told the tabloid that the Maleficent star didn’t feel the need to ask Pitt’s permission before she could sell the paintings.
Angelina Jolie has no regard for Brad Pitt’s feelings
And there’s no reason for her to keep them because she didn’t really love them in the first place.
“Angie made an absolute killing. Her selling the painting hurt Brad. Even though it was a gift to her, he treasured it. They just have little respect for each other at this point,” the source said.
Angelina Jolie strapped for cash
The insider also alleged that Jolie could be in dire need of money because divorce settlements can be costly.
“She could use the money. The divorce has cost an absolute fortune. And like every star in Hollywood, she’s not exactly rushing to the bank with $25 million a movie checks these days,” the source said.
The insider also claimed that Jolie asked Pitt for money in the past. And when she didn’t get what she thought she deserved, she turned to her expensive presents.
“Brad has always been obsessed with art. Angie liked the paintings but wasn’t in love with them,” the source said.
The actress’s Winston Churchill painting sold for millions
While it is true that Angelina Jolie sold her Winston Churchill painting for millions, it is unlikely for her to be doing this to upset Pitt. In fact, there is no proof that the painting was given to her by Pitt.
According to CNN, the Once Upon A Time In Hollywood actor is an avid art collector. And during his marriage to Jolie, they collected art as a couple.
However, the only painting of Churchill during the Second World War wasn’t given by the actor.
As for Jolie and Pitt’s relationship today, there haven’t been many updates from the A-listers. What is only known is that they are still fighting over the custody of their children.
Angelina Jolie wants to have sole custody of her kids, while Pitt has been requesting joint custody.
