Af­ter two trou­bled years, the Hol­ly­wood star’s mother wants jus­tice for her son

WHO - - In This Issue -

HER SON HAS BEEN THROUGH AN emo­tional few years, from split­ting up with the mother of his six chil­dren in 2016, to the on­go­ing bit­ter cus­tody bat­tle ever since, but Brad Pitt’s mother, Jane, has stood by him and is very much still on his side of the ring. Ac­cord­ing to re­ports, the Hol­ly­wood heavy­weight’s mum is “fu­ri­ous” with his es­tranged wife An­gelina for ru­in­ing her son’s life.

“Jane is a tough cookie, and she will never

forgive An­gelina for what she’s put the fam­ily through – es­pe­cially since they’ve barely seen the kids since the divorce was an­nounced,” an in­sider told Radar On­line.

“She thinks her son has been treated in a cruel and ma­nip­u­la­tive way, and she’s not let­ting this go,” added the source. “Brad’s had to beg his mom not to jump on a plane to con­front Angie nu­mer­ous times, but she wants to look her in the eye and give a piece of her mind,” said the in­sider. “She blames her for her ru­in­ing her son’s life and wants an­swers.”

In Novem­ber, Jane’s grand­chil­dren, Mad­dox, 17, Pax, 15, Za­hara, 13, Shiloh, 12, and 10-year-old twins Vivi­enne and Knox, were put out of their mis­ery as their par­ents Pitt, 55, and Jolie 43, reached a cus­tody agree­ment.

“A cus­tody agree­ment was agreed to weeks ago, and has been signed by both par­ties and the judge,” Jolie’s lawyer, Saman­tha Bley De­jean, told

En­ter­tain­ment Tonight in a state­ment on Nov. 30. “The agree­ment, which is based on the rec­om­men­da­tions of the child cus­tody eval­u­a­tor, elim­i­nates the need for a trial,” she con­tin­ued. “The fil­ing and the de­tails of the agree­ment are con­fi­den­tial to pro­tect the best in­ter­ests of the chil­dren.”

The agree­ment comes af­ter the former cou­ple asked for an­other ex­ten­sion to re­tain their pri­vate tem­po­rary judge, ac­cord­ing to court doc­u­ments ob­tained by WHO.

But de­spite their abil­ity to now agree, it ap­pears Pitt and his es­tranged wife have not had an easy jour­ney since their highly pub­li­cised break-up, adding fuel to Jane’s fury. “She’s fought him tooth and nail,” a fam­ily friend told In Touch Weekly of Jolie. Sources have re­vealed that the ac­tress and di­rec­tor dragged her ex to court in a bid to paint him in a neg­a­tive light and keep him away from the chil­dren. Le­gal doc­u­ments

ob­tained by WHO re­veal that the pair asked to ex­tend the cur­rent tem­po­rary judge on their case – Judge John Oud­erkirk, who also of­fi­ci­ated at their 2014 wed­ding – un­til Dec. 31 this year.

A source told WHO about the agree­ment, “It is not per­ma­nent but rather a tem­po­rary agree­ment in place, for now, to keep things mov­ing along in the right di­rec­tion.”

Well be­fore the cou­ple made this le­gal pact, Pitt made ev­ery ef­fort to show his chil­dren he’s ready to be a hands-on fa­ther, af­ter slip­ping through the cracks as he watched his per­sonal life crum­ble be­fore him. “I started ther­apy. I love it, I love it. I went through two ther­a­pists to get to the right one,” the

Al­lied star told GQ Style mag­a­zine. He also spent Christ­mas with his four youngest chil­dren. Us Weekly re­ports Pitt “ex­changed Christ­mas gifts with the kids on De­cem­ber 25 at his house.”

“[He] has never spoiled the kids for their birth­days or hol­i­days. It wasn’t over the top but low-key.” The source re­vealed Pitt was “ex­tremely happy” to have his kids spend the night with him.

But the same source notes that no mat­ter how hard he tries, Pitt – who re­port­edly had an al­ter­ca­tion on a pri­vate plane with his son Mad­dox in 2016 – is not on good terms with the teen or his brother Pax. “He has ac­cepted that he’ll likely never be able to re­pair their re­la­tion­ship.”

“An­gelina hasn’t of­fered any con­ces­sions about her ac­tions that have con­trib­uted to the sit­u­a­tion,” the in­sider adds, which is all the more rea­son for Pitt’s mother to hold a grudge against her fa­mous former daugh­ter-in-law.•
