Reasons behind Brad Pitt and Angelina Divorce

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were Hollywood’s power couple for twelve years. The Brangelina’s divorce news after two years of marriage came as a shock to may when Jolie filed for divorce.  Why did this happen? It has been one of the most discussed topics in recent weeks.

According to some reports, Angelina, the 41-year-old actor said the reason was irreconcilable differences. Therefore, because she felt “extremely upset,” they have decided to end the marriage. She cited Brat Pitt’s parenting style as a reason and sought joint legal custody, but not joint physical custody. According to Robert Offer, the attorney, this decision was for the family’s health. However, some reports say that the split had been brewing for some years.

Reason 1 for Brad Pitt and Angelina Divorce

Sources confirm that the reason was that Angelina was unhappy with Brad’s parenting methods. In the past, the couple has been quite open about their different parenting styles. Brad had said his wife worked the hardest of the two when he told E! News that:

“When Angie has a day off; the first thing she does is get up and take the kids out. This is the most important ‘to do’ of the day. No matter how tired she might be, she plans outings for each and all. She has an incredible knack for inventing crazy experiences for them, something new, something fresh. I may be the bigger goof of the pair, but she invents the stage.”

Brad also said that he had a strict childhood and had the tendency to be a disciplinarian. He said:

“I am [a disciplinarian] with the boys. Girls do no wrong so I don’t have to be.” Brad grew up in a Southern Baptist household. He added, “I feel like my job is to show them around, help them find what they want to do with their life, put as many things in front of them, and pull them back when they get out of line, so they know who they are.”

Moreover, after her mastectomy in 2013, she had started taking life more seriously. Brad wanted her the way she was in the past, which could have also been one of the reasons for the divorce. Brad has told Fox News that, “Her views on life changed. Suddenly she saw herself walking in her late mother’s shoes – and she was no longer that wild, fun loving woman she used to be, she was taking things a lot more seriously.”

Some sources said, “Angelina wasn’t really interested in doing any project that took her away from the children and home, but Brad was still wanting the wanderlust, adventure-filled life that first attracted him to her.”

Reason 2 for Brad Pitt and Angelina Divorce

Another reason could be the US gossip about Brad’s relationship with Marion Cotillard (aged 40). They have been close since they started acting in the “World War II drama”. New York Post’s report on page 6 said that Angelina had hired a private investigator too. Besides, an unnamed source said that Brad was having some kind of midlife crisis at 52 and Angelina has had enough.

Another source said that Angelina feels as if a sunset walk through a vineyard and pouring their hearts out may be good. She may change her mind, keep Brad close to her, and reignite the romance. The source also said that her intense jealousy about Marion Cotillard and another co-star (Lizzy Caplan), and her reluctance to take care of herself after the huge health scares are reasons for the Brad Pitt and Angelina split.

However, some sources say the Brad Pitt and Angelina couple insists that the reason for this decision doesn’t involve any third person. It is just the disagreement over parenting.
