Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from Brad Pitt following an altercation with son, Maddox Jolie-Pitt on an international flight almost one year ago. Now Angelina Jolie is opening up to Vanity Fair Magazine to tell her side of the couple’s surprising split, and it is perhaps not very surprising that she doesn’t have very kind things to say about her ex husband.
In the interview, Angelina Jolie describes the moment things started to go downhill for the former couple. Angelina claims “things got bad” and life with Brad Pitt became difficult in the summer of 2016 when she traveled to Cambodia to film the movie, “First They Killed My Father”.
Angelina was also asked about the fact that Brad Pitt had given his own tell-all interview telling his side of their marital breakdown shortly after their split. When asked about Brad’s revelations or if she was surprised Brad would give such a candid and explosive interview, Angelina answered in just one word, “No.”
Fans of Angelina Jolie will also be shocked to hear about the health problems she has suffered since filing for divorce from Brad Pitt. Angelina was diagnosed with hypertension, a condition which the force of the blood against the artery wall is too high. And she also developed Bell’s Palsy, which is a sudden weakness in the muscles of the face and caused one side of her face too droop. Angelina implied stress from her marriage and breakup caused her health problems.
Angelina also claims when things got bad between her and Brad, she would cry in private, not in front of the couple’s six children. Angelina said, “I think it’s very important to cry in the shower and not in front of them (the kids). They need to know that everything’s going to be all right, even when you’re not sure it is.”
Angelina then went on to compare her and Brad’s marital problems to that of her own parent’s rocky marriage and claimed that she didn’t want her children to worry about her like she worried about her own mother.
These days the actress says that after a tumultuous year, she feel like she is “just now coming up for air”. Now that her latest movie has wrapped, she has decided to take a break to concentrate on her children, who have been seeing a therapist since her split from Brad.
