If there’s one divorce that we didn’t see coming, it was Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s. While the world is shocked by the fact that Jolie filed for divorce, the reports that have been coming out about what went wrong are pretty insensitive.
The decision to divorce was undoubtedly one Pitt and Jolie did not take lightly — even more so because they share six children together — so the last thing anyone needs is to start discussing who’s to blame for the split. Yet that is exactly what has been happening, with a new report suggesting that Jolie’s control issues were the cause.
“Angelina [Jolie] was controlling and that too led to the end of her relationship with Brad [Pitt],” a source told Hollywood Life, adding, “She wanted to control every aspect of Brad’s life and when he ignored her demands, it would drive her mad.”
And that’s not all, the source also went on to paint Jolie in a very unpleasant light, commenting on how she was wanting to take the lead in all aspects of Pitt’s life.
“Angelina was frustrated she could not control Brad. She tried to control his friends, who he hung out with and where he went. Most of all, she wanted to control how he parented their kids,” the source told the publication. “She even wanted a say in what roles he took and what projects he chose to put his energy into. She wanted to control his personal life as well as his career. But Brad would agree with her in person and then when she wasn’t around he would do whatever he pleased and when Angelina found out, as she always did, it made her feel frustrated beyond no end [sic].”
Apart from the fact that this source paints Jolie as incredibly needy, demanding and an absolute control freak, it also places the blame of the divorce solely on her shoulders, and do we even need to get into why this is so unfair?
We’d like to remind everyone that it takes two to tango, regardless of the issues this couple had in their marriage — on Monday, Sept. 19, Jolie filed for divorce citing “irreconcilable differences” — no one should be playing the blame game and trying to find fault. Pitt and Jolie enjoyed more than 12 years of happiness together, and just because it’s come to an end now, doesn’t give anyone the right to judge the reasons why.
