Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s relationship has changed over the years after they split in 2016.
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were perfect for each other. The two started their romance from the reel when they played as a couple in Mr. & Mrs. Smith. They made it real when they started dating following his split from Jennifer Aniston.
However, things did not turn well for Pitt and Jolie when they parted ways four years ago. Check out how their relationship has changed over the years after their split.
Brad Pitt vs Angelina Jolie in a court battle
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were embroiled in a legal battle when they parted ways.
The Maleficent star wanted sole custody over their six children. Pitt was investigated for child abuse after an altercation against Maddox.
It was “totally a child-parent disagreement,” a source told Entertainment Tonight. However, the reports about inappropriate physical conduct are “exaggerated or untrue.”
Pitt and Jolie at odds after their split
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were at odds when they decided to separate. While they were fighting for their children’s custody, the two were not on speaking terms.
Also, Jolie allegedly wanted to turn the press against her ex-husband.
“The divorce case has been held in front of a private judge to keep it out of the press,” the source told Page Six.
“But she filed [the papers on Tuesday] in LA Superior Court knowing that it would go public and that he would be made out to be a deadbeat dad — which he isn’t.”
Meanwhile, another source told ET that Pitt was sick of Jolie and her legal team for letting their child custody battle play out in public.
“He wants this settled out of sight,” the source said of Pitt. “He knows this isn’t fair to the children. He’s saddened that they have to be a part of this [public fight].”
Pitt and Jolie decided to agree for their kids
Eventually, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie decided to work together for the best interest of their children. The Ad Astra actor gained more time to be with their children.
Pitt and Jolie’s kids were allowed to see their dad regularly. They see him even during the lockdown.
Also, they spend holidays and special events together. For instance, Shiloh Jolie Pitt celebrated her birthday with her dad and siblings. Angelina Jolie reportedly prepared another party for her.
Furthermore, to show their unity for their children, Jolie allowed Pitt to visit them at her home. Last week, the Once Upon a Time in Hollywood actor visited Jolie’s house.
When they split, Jolie and Pitt could barely endure being in the same room. However, things have gotten better between the two. They reportedly decided to live close so kids could smoothly go back and forth.
Also, Pitt’s sighting at Jolie’s premises wasn’t the first time he visited Jolie and the kids at her home.
“They are in a much more amicable relationship,” the source said.
