“By The Sea” director Angelina Jolie Pitt is catching the blame for her marriage to Brad Pitt supposedly ending. The two are heading for a divorce, that is, if rumors are to be believed. Jolie has “dark demons” and it’s taken a toll on her marriage to Pitt, Hollywood Life wrote in an exclusive report Thursday.
“Some of her issues force her to retreat into isolation and pull away from Brad and the kids. It is impossible to be entirely free from who she once was,” an insider told Hollywood Life. “Angie has some serious dark demons that have never entirely let go and it is still affecting her life and marriage.”
Another thing that has affected her marriage was her decision to remove her breasts and ovaries. Jolie, 40, did so after she was diagnosed with the BRCA1 gene, which meant she had an increased risk of breast and ovarian cancer. “Her wild lifestyle when she was younger and her intense surgeries to avoid getting breast and ovarian cancer have taken a toll on her as a person and a life partner,” the source said.
Pitt was once attracted to her “dark side,” but it’s the thing that is tearing them apart. “He feels he has been more than patient with Angie, but his confidence in their happiness is wearing thin,” the source said. “It can be really hard on him.”
The “Fury” actor reportedly tried to save their marriage by taking Jolie on an exotic vacation to Vietnam, but it backfired. “He hoped that he and Angie could reignite the spark between them, but all they did was scream at each other, ” an insider told Radar Online last week. “Angie even humiliated Brad by telling him she’s no longer attracted to him because he looks fat, bloated and old.”
It was supposedly the final straw for Pitt. “He’s given up,” an insider told In Touch Weekly on Wednesday. They had “a series of relationship-ending fights” and now “the day of reckoning is here.” The pair are reportedly "living separate lives" but want to co-parent their six children: Maddox, 14; Pax, 11; Zahara, 10; Shiloh, 9 and twins Vivienne and Knox, 7.
