Her son has been through an emotional few years, from splitting up with the mother of his six children in 2016, to the ongoing bitter custody battle ever since, but Brad Pitt’s mother, Jane, has stood by him and is very much still on his side of the ring.
According to reports, the Hollywood heavy- weight’s mum is “furious” with his estranged wife Angelina Jolie for ruining her son’s life.
“Jane is a tough cookie, and she will never forgive Angelina for what she’s put the family through – especially since they’ve barely seen the kids since the divorce was announced,” an insider told Radar Online.
“She thinks her son has been treated in a cruel and manipulative way, and she’s not letting this go,” added the source.
“Brad’s had to beg his mom not to jump on a plane to confront Angie numerous times, but she wants to look her in the eye and give a piece of her mind,” said the insider. “She blames her for her ruining her son’s life and wants answers.”
In November, Jane’s grandchildren, Maddox, 17, Pax, 15, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, and 10-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox, were put out of their misery as their parents Pitt, 55, and Jolie 43, reached a custody agreement.
“A custody agreement was agreed to weeks ago, and has been signed by both parties and the judge,” Jolie’s lawyer, Samantha Bley DeJean, told Entertainment Tonight in a statement on Nov. 30.
“The agreement, which is based on the recommendations of the child custody evaluator, eliminates the need for a trial,” she continued. “The filing and the details of the agreement are confidential to protect the best interests of the children.”
The agreement comes after the former couple asked for another extension to retain their private temporary judge, according to court documents obtained by WHO.
But despite their ability to now agree, it appears Pitt and his estranged wife have not had an easy journey since their highly publicised break-up, adding fuel to Jane’s fury.
