An­gelina bro­ken and beg­ging for money

The mum-of-six strug­gles to keep up her fam’s lav­ish life­style as the le­gal fees stack up...

An­gelina Jolie’s bit­ter di­vorce bat­tle with Brad Pitt (aka The Never-end­ing Story IV) is fi­nally near­ing its end af­ter raging on for over two-and-a-half years.

And while that’s good news for Ange, the war with her fu­ture ex-hubby has bro­ken the ac­tress – and sent her broke in the process!

“This split has been uglier than any­one ex­pected, and at this point Ange can’t wait to of­fi­cially be sin­gle again,” an in­sider tells NW of the pair, who filed to bi­fur­cate their

mar­riage – a process which al­lows both par­ties to achieve a “sin­gle” sta­tus de­spite on­go­ing di­vorce pro­ceed­ings – over seven months ago.

“She went into this want­ing to fight Brad for every­thing that she could,” con­tin­ues the spy. “But at this point, it will be a big re­lief when it’s all over. The stress has got to Ange and it looks like she’s lost a lot of weight. Peo­ple are con­vinced that the di­vorce is tak­ing its toll in a ma­jor way.”

When Ange headed to a meet­ing in Los An­ge­les on March 14, she looked scaryskinny. And there are fur­ther con­cerns that her weight could have plum­meted as low as just 35kg. Yikes!

“Ange has al­ways been tiny, but she looks thin­ner than ever right now,” the source says. “Her clothes are hang­ing off her and it’s not a good look. The worry is that she’s been skip­ping meals be­cause of the stress of the di­vorce.”

The cou­ple has been fight­ing over their mu­tual as­sets, as well as cus­tody of their kids. Ange and Brad were mar­ried for two years and they share Mad­dox, 17, Pax, 15, Za­hara, 14, Shiloh, 12, and 10-year-old Knox and Vivi­enne.

But fol­low­ing her pro­longed le­gal bat­tle with Brad, it seems Ange is strapped for cash and find­ing it hard to make ends meet.

Yep, NW can re­veal that the 43-year-old has even fast-tracked her bigscreen re­turn in Malef­i­cent: Mis­tress Of Evil be­cause she’s ab­so­lutely des­per­ate for a cash in­jec­tion!

“Ange made a strong push to get this movie done way ahead of sched­ule, and she knows that she stands to make a killing at the box of­fice – on top of her $40 mil­lion fee,” tells NW’S in­sider of the star, with the Dis­ney flick now be­ing re­leased in Oc­to­ber 2019 in­stead of May 2020. “This is all about the money for Ange, be­cause she needs to get the last in­stal­ment cheque from the film now that Brad’s hand­outs have dried up.”

It’s not the first we’ve heard of money trou­bles for the star. The ac­tress filed a court doc­u­ment in Au­gust last year, al­leg­ing that Brad had paid “no mean­ing­ful child sup­port” since the cou­ple’s sep­a­ra­tion, with Brad hit­ting back by say­ing he’d given Ange over $13 mil­lion to­wards bills for the kids and to help her buy a new home.

And sources say that as she waits to score another pay­out from Brad, Ange needs the money ASAP!

“Right now, Ange is drown­ing in le­gal fees, not to men­tion hav­ing a huge mort­gage round her neck and a mas­sively ex­pen­sive life­style to main­tain,” says the spy. “She al­ready has a few more act­ing projects on the go, but would love to land another big block­buster like this. The pay­day alone makes it all worth it!” n
