- Angelina Jolie ‘Struggles’ To Imagine Herself With Anybody Else
- Wrong Rumors About Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie Custody Battle
Angelina Jolie can barely ‘envision’ the successor to Brad Pitt, fillgapnews has learned! What’s interrupting her daydreams about a new love?
Angelina Jolie, 43, is caught between nostalgia and acceptance. As the two-year anniversary since filing for divorce from Brad Pitt, 54, approaches, a source close to Angelina tells fillgapnews, “It’s really dawned on Angelina recently how empty her life is without Brad in it.” With that said, our source adds that Angie has “pretty much gone through all seven stages of grieving a break-up now.” The Maleficent actress has especially ruminated on one stage, which is important for “moving forward,” our source claims.
“Even though the worst was probably the anger stage, she’s been struggling a lot with the last one, redirected hope,” our source reveals. “Moving forward and knowing that she will be OK without Brad, and that they will never be together again, has been a lot for Angelina to process, even though she’s pretty much accepted that fact now.” Angelina met Brad, who’s now shooting Once Upon a Time In Hollywood, on the set of their film Mr. & Mrs. Smith in the summer of 2004.
Photos of them as a couple surfaced from Kenya in April of 2005, just a few months after Brad and ex-wife Jennifer Aniston announced their split…and the rest is history. “They shared so many good times, not to mention six kids together, and a large part of her still believes that he was the love of her life and her soulmate,” our source goes on. Angelina and Brad share children Maddox, 17, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, and 10-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne. With all that history behind her, here’s why Angelina struggles to imagine life with another man.
“Angelina hates to think she will never meet somebody else again, but she struggles to imagine herself with anybody but Brad,” our source explains. Our source continues that it’s been “really tough” for Angelina to move on, as she’s had “lovers here and there” that were never serious. Of course, our source isn’t suggesting the Oscar-winning actress wants to get back together with Brad, as she’s accepted they’re a done deal. But Angie’s still feeling stuck. “The truth is, she just can’t envision what that person would look like, or who they would be, other than Brad, and in all honestly, she knows that ship has well and truly sailed,” our source says.
And it’s difficult for us to imagine a couple outside Brangelina. Their romance caused a sensation, which even caught Angelina off-guard when it happened. “We just became kind of a pair,” she told Vogue in a 2007 interview, regarding their time spent on set of Mr. & Mrs. Smith. “And it took until, really, the end of the shoot for us, I think, to realize that it might mean something more than we’d earlier allowed ourselves to believe. And both knowing that the reality of that was a big thing, something that was going to take a lot of serious consideration.”
5 Wrong Rumors About Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie Custody Battle
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s custody battle has been the subject of a lot of false tabloid stories. Fillgapnews frequently has to clear up inaccuracies about the situation. Here are five recent wrong rumors.
Last week, busted the National Enquirer for falsely claiming that Jolie was fleeing to France with the ex-couple’s six children. The magazine alleged that the actress was moving to their French estate, Chateau Miraval, but mostly as a ploy to get Pitt to pay her a bigger divorce settlement to remain in Los Angeles. The story made no sense. In June, a judge determined that Jolie needs to allow Pitt more access to their children or she could risk losing custody of them. The actress has no intention of defying a court order by fleeing the United States.
In September, debunked a Grazia story about George Clooney getting involved in the custody battle between the estranged spouses. The tabloid claimed the actor was attempting to play “peacemaker” and trying to convince Jolie to settle their divorce amicably. The premise was based on claims from an anonymous “source,” but Clooney’s rep told us on the record that it was made-up. Meanwhile, Clooney hadn’t even heard the news of Pitt and Jolie’s split when it first occurred back in 2016. A CNN reporter was the first one to tell him. It hardly seems like the actor is super involved in the situation.
Also in September, busted OK! for falsely claiming that Jolie was begging her kids to choose her over their father in the custody battle. The outlet contended that the actress was spoiling her kids in an effort to manipulate them into telling a judge they want to live with her. Not only were we told the story was baseless, but reputable celebrity news outlets such as People magazine reported that Jolie “remains focused on healing her family” and “continues to support the reconciliation of the children with Brad.”
In early September, called out the Enquirer for wrongly reporting that Pitt had won custody of the children. Of course, the article was completely untrue and negotiations are still ongoing. Just last week, in fact, the news emerged that Pitt and Jolie are in the process of child custody evaluations in an effort to finalize their arrangement.
And finally, shot down NW in August after the tabloid falsely claimed that Jennifer Aniston was stepping in to help Pitt win custody of his kids. The magazine said the actress was willing act as a character witness in court and convince a judge that Pitt is a good dad. Only, a rep for the actress has told us several times on the record that she doesn’t have much contact with her ex-husband. Additionally, Aniston’s close friend Portia de Rossi told Us Weekly that she and Pitt “haven’t seen each other.” The actress isn’t playing a role in her ex-husband’s custody battle.
