An­gelina Jolie’s poi­sonous $500 mil­lion di­vorce slugfest has shat­tered their fam­ily — and dam­aged them both phys­i­cally and fi­nan­cially!

Des­per­ate to keep their dark­est se­crets hid­den from the pub­lic, the cou­ple waged their bloody le­gal bat­tle be­hind closed doors in front of a pri­vate judge — run­ning up costs of $35 mil­lion!

But af­ter re­view­ing a moun­tain of sealed files, text mes­sages, bomb­shell tes­ti­mony and le­gal doc­u­ments, The Na­tional EN­QUIRER can re­veal how their re­cently de­cided cus­tody agree­ment has split their six chil­dren down the mid­dle — with the three old­est shun­ning Brad!

“It’s not the big win that

Brad was hop­ing for. He’s get­ting the joint phys­i­cal and le­gal cus­tody he asked for, but there are con­tin­gen­cies,” tat­tled an in­sider.

“His el­dest kids never want to see Dad again and that hurts him. They’re on Angie’s side — and al­ways have been.”

The cou­ple’s three el­dest — Mad­dox, 17, Pax, 15, and Za­hara, 13 — have spent most of their time with An­gelina dur­ing the di­vorce bat­tle. At one point, a judge was forced to or­der Angie to let Brad, 55, see them, and his camp feels she’s to­tally poi­soned them against their fa­ther.

“These three kids are at the age where they can de­cide things for them­selves. Brad is left hop­ing they come to see him out of their own free will,” added an in­sider.

De­spite that, friends fear Brad’s re­la­tion­ship with Mad­dox will never re­cover. It was their ugly fight on the dis­as­trous pri­vate plane flight from Europe to the U.S. in Septem­ber 2016 that spurred An­gelina, 43, to file for di­vorce. “Brad’s very sad about what hap­pened but ac­cepts the re­la­tion­ship is de­te­ri­o­rated beyond re­pair. He won’t force Mad­dox into any­thing,” spilled the source. For­tu­nately, the cou­ple’s twins, 10-yearold Vivi­enne and Knox, were shel­tered from the worst of the mud­sling­ing in the cus­tody bat­tle.

The two “don’t have a lot of the se­ri­ous is­sues their sib­lings do,” said the in­sider, be­cause Angie did her best to pro­tect them, and didn’t talk about the di­vorce in their pres­ence.

Mid­dle child Shiloh poses the big­gest prob­lem for both par­ents, sources said.

The “Fury” star is slowly try­ing to re­pair their re­la­tion­ship and re­gain his 12-year-old daugh­ter’s trust through ther­apy.

“Shiloh’s case is per­haps the most painful of all. She wants to see her fa­ther and is des­per­ate to have some

kind of re­la­tion­ship with him but she’s afraid of him, too,” dished the in­sider.

“Brad can be thick­headed some­times, and Shiloh’s at a sen­si­tive age. Brad’s try­ing to change.”

In an ef­fort to bond with Shiloh, her su­per­star dad has brought her into the fam­ily busi­ness! Friends say “Shi” has shown real act­ing tal­ent and Brad has en­cour­aged her to fol­low in her par­ents’ foot­steps.

Fa­ther and daugh­ter are fi­nally be­gin­ning to bond — and that’s in­fu­ri­ated Angie, who be­lieves Shiloh is too young for an act­ing ca­reer. “She’s been strug­gling,” an in­sider spilled. “Shiloh even ran away from home last sum­mer, and it was hours be­fore any­one re­al­ized it.”

It wasn’t just Brad’s ad­mit­ted drink­ing prob­lem that wrecked his re­la­tion­ship with his kids. The di­vorce files re­vealed se­ri­ous con­cerns about the Hol­ly­wood hunk’s state of mind. “Brad’s men­tal health was called into ques­tion,” the source di­vulged. “The chil­dren ex­plained he mis­treated their mother, and he was moody and in­dif­fer­ent to their needs. “He’s been or­dered to get in­di­vid­ual coun­sel­ing for his psy­cho­log­i­cal is­sues while con­tin­u­ing his re­cov­ery for al­co­hol ad­dic­tion.”

But while Brad has bounced back from his dark­est days af­ter the split, “Malef­i­cent” witch An­gelina con­tin­ues to spi­ral down­ward.

The Os­car-win­ning ac­tress is thin­ner and paler than ever, with in­sid­ers re­veal­ing the di­vorce has ru­ined her al­ready frag­ile health.

“Angie can’t sleep,” said a fam­ily in­sider.

“Her vi­cious bat­tles with Brad have kept her up at night! She now suf­fers from ter­ri­ble in­som­nia — which leads to crip­pling anx­i­ety. “She’s a bun­dle of nerves and wor­ries con­stantly.” “She’s also los­ing weight again at an alarm­ing rate!” added an­other source.

Dr. Gabe Mirkin, a longevity ex­pert who has not treated Angie, said: “Lack of sleep is as­so­ci­ated with di­a­betes, heart at­tacks and all sorts of men­tal prob­lems!

“It can cause de­pres­sion, poor de­ci­sion-mak­ing, mood swings, loss of mem­ory and de­creased alert­ness.” Al­though the cus­tody agree­ment has been signed, the war be­tween the exes is far from over.

Brad and An­gelina are still duk­ing it out through their lawyers, and their bit­ter­ness and equal de­sire to win at all costs keeps do­ing more dam­age to their frac­tured fam­ily — mak­ing their bat­tle more bit­ter, ex­pen­sive and full of twists and turns than any of their block­buster movies!
