Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston’s relationship dates way back before the former had started dating Angelina Jolie. Brad and Jennifer had first met in 1994 and had begun dating in 1998. It was in 1999 when Brad had proposed to Jennifer and in 2000 the two had tied the knot. However, their wedded life could not survive as after five years of marriage, in 2005, the couple had gotten divorced. It was during their wedded life that Brad had met Angelina Jolie and they had become 'Brangelina' on the sets of Mr and Mrs Smith.
Brad Pitt and Angeline Jolie had dated each other for ten glorious years, and later, had decided to tie the knot in August 2014. It was just over two years of their marriage when 'Brangelina' had decided to end their relationship in September 2016. For the uninitiated, Angelina and Brad have been involved in a divorce battle since September 2016. In the ugly turn of events, Angelina had accused Brad of domestic abuse and later, it was said that the actor was devastated by his estranged wife’s remarks.
Now as per the reports by Mirror, Brad Pitt’s ex-wife, Jennifer Aniston contacted him as soon as she got to know about the allegations made on him and his condition. It is reported that Jennifer told Brad that she is with him and is also ready to appear in court if needed. While Brad is saddened by the divorce case and the ugly turn it has taken, Jennifer’s support has come as a relief for him. It is also said that Jennifer’s support has brought the exes closer as friends.
Angeline Jolie, who is 45 and Brad Pitt, who is 57 are battling for the custody of their minor children, Pax (17), Zahara (16), Shiloh (14), and twins, Knox and Vivienne (12). In their divorce and custody trial, a few days back, Angelina had accused Brad of domestic abuse and had revealed that she has “proof and authority” to support her allegations. A source close to Brad Pitt had shared with Page Six that the actor was “heartbroken” with the claims. The source had revealed that Brad had taken the responsibilities of his actions and had owned up to his past, but he was heartbroken that Angelina had taken this route. The source was quoted as saying “Brad is heartbroken that Angelina has gone that route. There’s a lot of emotion left after their marriage. He has taken responsibility for his actions and owned up to his past issues, he’s stopped drinking. The marriage was very passionate and toxic at times and they had fights, but also shared many good times together.”
The source had also added that Brad feels devastated by being isolated from his children and thinks that it was a calculated move to change the opinion ahead of the conclusion of the trial. The source had further added, “He talked about his drink and drug problems during the time they were together… Brad and his camp has never attacked Angelina. But his camp feels this leak was calculated to sway opinion ahead of the conclusion of their trial. Brad feels like he’s being more and more isolated from his children, and he’s devastated about it.”
For the unversed, according to the reports in HollywoodLife, Angelina Jolie had accused her ex-husband, Brad Pitt of domestic violence. The actress had filed some documents in the court on March 12, 2021, in which she had claimed that she has "proof and authority" to support her allegations of domestic violence against her ex-husband. A source had also told HollywoodLife.com, "This deliberate leak of this information is to no one's benefit and is simply the continuation of an ongoing relentless effort to target and tarnish Brad. Over the past four and a half years since the divorce filing, there has been a never-ending series of allegations, which seem to be solely to elevate one side by taking down the other. Hopefully, some sanity will prevail in the future."
