Angelina: ‘i Won’t let Brad’s new girlfriend near My Children’
As Angelina admits the two aren’t speaking, is their divorce battle turning nasty?
‘My focus is my children – our children – and my focus is finding this way through. We are and forever will be a family.’
We have to admit, when Look first heard Angelina Jolie utter these words in an emotional BBC interview last month, we wondered whether she and ex Brad Pitt could work out their differences. But if, like us, you were hoping for a Brangelina reunion, according to a close pal, the pair are no longer on speaking terms.
Following a bitter custody battle and a number of allegations from both sides, the storm seemed to have calmed after the two agreed to handle their divorce privately in January. But, according to insiders, a series of recent events has caused Ange, 41, and Brad, 53, to reconsider – particularly Brad.
According to our source, the last few weeks have unearthed a string of disputes between the pair, most notably Ange’s recent TV interviews, their children’s whereabouts, and a certain blonde Hollywood actress, who Brad has been linked to numerous times.
After Ange’s interviews with BBC World News and Good Morning America last month, Brad was reportedly livid, apparently describing her to friends as ‘acting’ for the cameras. Brad’s also said to be upset Ange has headed to London, leaving him on a different continent to kids Maddox, 14, Pax, 11, Zahara, 10, Shiloh, nine, and seven-yearold twins Knox and Vivienne.
‘They were starting to move forward,’ says our source. ‘But Ange’s actions have started to irritate Brad.
‘She took the children to London – one minute she’s saying he’s a wonderful father, the next she’s headed off with the kids.’
Despite Angelina being in London to host a lecture on ‘Women, Peace and Security’ at the London School of Economics, according to our source, the actress has flown to England also to have secret talks about a movie deal with Tom Cruise.
‘It’s early days, but Ange will be engaging in some secret discussions with producers this week,’ reveals our source. ‘There’s a film she’s desperate to land and she’s prepared to move to London to get it. It’s not been easy for Ange – she’s trying to throw herself into her career as a distraction, but Brad’s caught wind of the plans and he’s not happy. He doesn’t think Ange should be able to leave with the kids whenever she feels like it.’
While we’re pretty excited to catch sight of Angelina in London, there could be another reason why she’s looking to move overseas. According to reports, Brad has been linked once again to 37-year-old actress Kate Hudson. Dating rumours began circulating last November when Brad’s ex-bodyguard Kris Herzog claimed the actor had started dating somebody new.
‘Brad’s started dating another A-list actress,’ he said. ‘She’s a personal friend of mine.’
With paparazzi reportedly focused on Brad’s home, the pair are said to be spending a lot of time at Kate’s Pacific Palisades mansion in Los Angeles.
‘Kate and Brad are an item,’ says our source. ‘They’re a long way off going public, but Ange knows and, naturally, isn’t too happy. However, she can’t really say much about it.’ While we hope the former couple can come to an agreement, we’ve got our fingers crossed Angelina stays in London. We could bump into her on our lunch break…
