Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s private life has once again taken center stage, especially with regard to their children.
Pax allegedly called out his dad for being an “a**hole.”
And now, one of their kids has come forward with a shocking revelation that is causing quite a stir on social media.
Angelina filed for divorce from Brad back in 2016.
Pax, the 19-year-old adopted son of the ex-couple, had previously taken to Instagram in an unearthed explosive rant, according to the Daily Mail, airing his grievances about his father’s alleged behavior.
The couple have been feuding ever since.
In a shocking twist of events, Pax called his father a “world-class a**hole” and a “despicable person,” accusing him of making his four youngest siblings “tremble in fear.”
Pax’s unearthed Instagram post is shedding light on the family’s dynamic.
The Instagram post, which has since received massive attention worldwide, paints a chilling picture of the turmoil within one of Hollywood’s most glamorous families.
It is quite the contrast to the usual photos and updates we see from the Jolie-Pitt clan – those of vacations, premieres, and humanitarian trips. Instead, Pax’s words reveal a dark underbelly that has left fans and followers shocked and concerned.
The Jolie-Pitt divorce: A closer look
Fans were undeniably shocked when Jolie and Pitt announced their divorce in 2016. The couple, lovingly dubbed “Brangelina” by the media, had been together for over a decade and share six children together.
The announcement and initial reactions.
The divorce announcement came seemingly out of the blue. Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt, citing irreconcilable differences. The actress requested physical custody of their six children, proposing visitation rights for Pitt. The news was met with widespread surprise, as the couple had always presented a united front in public.
The reasons behind the split.
Though the initial reasons for the split were kept private, reports eventually surfaced suggesting that a disagreement over their children’s upbringing played a significant role.
Brad battled alcoholism during the relationship.
It was reported that Jolie and Pitt had different parenting styles, with Jolie favoring a more liberal approach and Pitt preferring a more traditional one.
The pair’s relationship reportedly had been rocky for some time.
In addition to the parenting disagreement, it was also rumored that Pitt’s alleged substance abuse and anger issues contributed to the split. These allegations gained traction following an incident on a private plane where Pitt allegedly had an altercation with their eldest son, Maddox.
The aftermath and ongoing legal battle
The divorce proceedings quickly turned contentious, with both parties embroiled in a bitter custody battle. The couple initially agreed to a temporary custody agreement, but negotiations for a permanent arrangement proved to be challenging.
Angelina and Brad have been going back and forth in court over custody and sharing their assets.
Despite the acrimony, both Jolie and Pitt have publicly stated their commitment to co-parenting their children. However, the legal battle has been protracted, with a final decision on custody yet to be made.
What did Pax say about Brad Pitt?
In an Instagram Story post that was reportedly shared in December 2020, the teen wrote to his social media, ‘You have made the lives of those closest to me a constant hell. You may tell yourself and the world whatever you want, but the truth will come to light someday.”
Recent allegations and public response
Adding more layers to this complex story, recent allegations made by their son Pax on Instagram have once again put the Jolie-Pitt divorce under the spotlight.
The post was shared in late 2020.
Pax accused Pitt of being a “despicable person” and claimed that his father’s behavior made his siblings “tremble in fear.”
He calls out Brad for being a bad parent.
But he was far from done. He then continued to take a dig at his dad, writing, “You time and time and again prove yourself to be a terrible and despicable person.”
Pax seems to feel as if Brad hasn’t been a good father.
“You have no consideration or empathy toward your four youngest children who tremble in fear when in your presence. You will never understand the damage you have done to my family because you’re incapable of doing so.”
His reasons for feeling this way were not explained, but he did say that everything eventually comes to light.
Pitt hasn’t publicly responded to Pax’s post yet. Meanwhile, Jolie, too, has remained typically silent on the matter. The Oscar-winning actress has always been private about her family life, especially since her very public breakup with Brad Pitt in 2016, so it’s not that surprising.
The family’s future
As the Jolie-Pitt family navigates these turbulent times, one can only hope that the well-being of their children remains the central focus. Family issues can be complex and painful, whether you’re a world-renowned actor or an ordinary person.
Going their separate ways.
Despite the glamour and fame, celebrities, like everyone else, face personal struggles and complex family dynamics. This deeply personal matter has left fans and followers shocked and concerned, subsequently shedding light on the human side of Hollywood.
Angelina ‘s former investment company called Brad a “petulant child”
Back in July, Pitt was dubbed a “petulant child” by Jolie’s former investment firm Nouvel in the midst of a bitter legal tussle over their winery, per PEOPLE.
Brad won’t stop, and neither will Angelina.
The lawsuit that has sparked this latest round of name-calling revolves around Château Miraval, a winery in France that Pitt and Jolie purchased back in 2008.
Both Hollywood stars invested millions into their winery business.
The vineyard, set in the picturesque landscapes of Correns, has been a bone of contention between the two since they announced their split in late 2016.
But after their split, the pair struggled to come to an agreement to split their assets.
The couple, according to reports, had initially made the purchase with the intent of producing their own line of wine, but things have since soured – quite literally – with the winery now at the center of their ongoing legal dispute.
Angelina has distanced herself from anything related to Brad.
This sharp barb from Jolie’s former investment firm is not the first time Pitt has been criticized over his handling of the situation. In fact, it can be seen as an escalation of an already tense legal battle.
She subsequently sold her share to a rival company, which infuriated Brad.
The firm’s derogatory characterization of Pitt as a “child” is suggestive of their perceiving him as being immature and petty in his dealings concerning the winery.
No going back from the mess that’s been created.
“Incensed that Jolie sold Nouvel to Stoli rather than him, Pitt has acted like a petulant child, refusing to treat Nouvel as an equal partner in the business,” Nouvel wrote in court documents supporting Jolie’s fight against Pitt over the winery.
Brad did not respond to claims he acts like a child.
This name-calling does little to alleviate the tension and instead pours more fuel on an already blazing fire. While Brad Pitt may have been called a child, his actions will be what ultimately defines him – not just in the courtroom, but also in the court of public opinion.
Will he ever address his issues with Angelina publicly?
As for Jolie, her past association with the investment firm does not necessarily mean she shares their views about her ex-husband.
They were once Hollywood’s power couple…
Although, seeing how things have played out in the past seven years, it would seem that the actress probably shares similar views.
