Brad Pitt is not happy after his estranged wife Angelina Jolie spoke out about their divorce in an interview with BBC News. The actor is even going so far as to accuse the brunette beauty of faking her emotion during the sit-down.
“Brad didn’t think Angie was being genuine at all,” an insider tells Life & Style. “The dramatic pauses, the tears — he told his friends that he thought she was acting."
The 53-year-old remains convinced that she only agreed to talk in an effort to boost her image. “He feels like the entire interview was Angie’s attempt to change the narrative that she was to blame for their divorce,” the insider shares.
The pair in happier times.
A different source previously told Life & Style that the mother-of-six’s aggressive attempts at getting sole custody of their children backfired, and that Brad was rewarded more visitation as a result of her behavior.
“People close to Angie have accused Brad of being abusive, having a drinking problem, having anger issues, without offering any proof. She’s been willing to make Brad look like a villain. But Brad has been completely focused on his children and volunteered to do anything and everything to get them,” the source said in January.
“Up until now, Angelina has played games by suddenly canceling visits and making it difficult for him to see [the kids]. But Brad is going to get his visitation much more regularly now. She has lost in the court of public opinion and will have to hand over the kids to him and stop playing games,” the source added of the 41-year-old.
