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
