Pitt and Jolie then exchanged heated statements directed at each other through their lawyers. A source told Us Weekly that Pitt is not happy with what Jolie is trying to do. As such, he has no other choice but to retaliate.
Jolie’s lawyer, on the other hand, put all the blame on Pitt and his team.
“Any delay in these proceedings is due to Pitt’s team’s zealous attempt to create an unrecognized special exception for their client’s benefit,” she said.
Years ago, there have already been shocking claims about Pitt and Jolie’s marriage.
Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie had physically, verbally abusive fights
According to Ian Halperin, the author of Brangelina: The Untold Story of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, the A-listers’ relationship was filled with stress and conflict. He said that the former couple always feared that the other would have an affair.
Halperin also said most of Pitt and Jolie’s fights became physical at one point. And they also exchanged verbally abusive statements with each other.
“It would get outrageously out of hand, with pushing, yelling, and screaming. Some of their staff believed it would go further – like they would have gotten would up to the point that they could have killed each other – if they didn’t step in and separate them. That’s how bad it could get,” he said.
Brangelina allegedly jealous of each other’s exes
Star also claimed to know the extent of Pitt and Jolie’s previous marital issues. The tabloid said that Jolie always feared that Pitt would get back together with Jennifer Aniston. Pitt, on the other hand, was, allegedly, jealous of Jolie’s ex, Billy Bob Thornton.
“I truly believe that Angie always harbored the fear that Brad and Jen were secretly in contact and might reconnect. But Brad himself wasn’t immune to those feelings. The fact that Angie’s former hubby, Billy Bob Thornton, was always very public about how they were still good friends, weighed heavily on Brad, as well,” the source said.
However, Brad Pitt and Jolie’s marriage didn’t end because of Aniston and Thornton. Rather, they could cite their irreconcilable differences as the main reason for their split.
