Brad Pitt got his ex-wife Jennifer Aniston’s support amid his custody and legal battle against this second ex-wife, Angelina Jolie, according to a report.

Brad Pitt allegedly got Jennifer Aniston’s support
Brad Pitt was reportedly stunned with Angelina Jolie’s claim after she filed for new court documents saying she and her children are willing to provide proof and authority concerning her abuse allegations against Pitt. Jolie’s eldest child, Maddox, 19, already testified, and his testimony was allegedly not very flattering for Pitt.
The Once Upon a Time in Hollywood star was devastated. So, Pitt took to his ex-wife, Aniston, for support during the difficult times. The Morning Show star was very supportive and even pulled out all the stops to help Pitt, Heat reported.
“As soon as the accusations about domestic violence went public, Jen was straight on the phone to Brad,” an insider told Heat.
“She wanted to let him know she would be there for him, no matter what, and she’s told him again that she’ll appear in court if she has to, although she knows it would never come to that.”
Pitt allegedly felt lost, and Aniston’s words of encouragement were so timely because he was at a tumultuous time in his life.
Brad and Jen after split
Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston married in 2000 but divorced five years later. There were rumors that Angelina Jolie had something to do with their separation because Jolie and Pitt allegedly fell in love while filming Mr. & Mrs. Smith in 2004.
The trio denied the rumors involving Jolie in Pitt and Aniston’s divorce. However, the Friends alum did not hide her surprise when she saw the photos of Pitt enjoying the beach in Kenya with Jolie and Maddox. She felt bad because they looked like a happy family, and the photo was taken shortly after their split.
Despite what happened, Pitt and Aniston chose to remain good friends. In fact, he attended her 50th birthday in 2019, sparking rumors that they were back together.
