Brad Pitt is one of the biggest names in Hollywood. He has starred in some of the most critically acclaimed projects in the last three decades, starring in Fight Club, and Meet Joe Black early in his career, to featuring in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, and Bullet Train in recent times. However, as smooth as his professional life has been, his personal life has been equally rocky. While controversy struck after the actor cheated on his then-wife, Jennifer Aniston, with Angelina Jolie, who he then got married to, a storm was waiting for him at the end of his second marriage.

There was a lot of negative press that the actor received amid his divorce from Jolie, including claims of physical assault on her. Along with this, comments made by his children did not help his image, including them raising a finger at his character. With so much damage having been done to his public image, Pitt has taken some much-needed action. It has been reported that the actor has hired a new public relations team, Hiltzik Strategies, who have famously worked with Justin Beiber, Donald Trump, and Johnny Depp.

Brad Pitt’s Complicated Relationship With His Children

In 2016, several reports suggested that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were arguing on their private airplane, which ended up turning into a physical altercation after the actor put his hands on his wife. It was also mentioned that this incident was so serious that their son, Maddox Jolie-Pitt, had to intervene. While Pitt and his team claimed this to be a minor incident, Jolie said otherwise, calling it abuse. This resulted in the two getting divorced and the actress getting full custody of their children, up until May 2021, when the two were awarded 50-50 custody.

Despite being able to meet his children legally now, it has been reported by many that Pitt has no relationship with Maddox, Pax, and Zahara, wanting his absence in their lives to be permanent. In 2020, Pax shared an Instagram post, which he quickly deleted, where he called his father a terrible human, referring to him as an awful person. This rant was leaked and only made his image in the public worse.

Zahara has also changed her name from Zahara Jolie-Pitt to Zahara Marley Jolie, as she revealed while introducing herself at a sorority event. The actor hasn’t made a response to any of their incidents after 2016, choosing to stay quiet. While this has only caused more damage to his image, it would seem that he is finally taking action.

“He’s turned a corner in what he wants and is living a whole new life,” the insider explained. “He’s finally putting his well-being and his family first.” “He acknowledged his drinking was a problem, and he’s truly sorry for his part in the split,” the source said. “He loves Maddox dearly, and even though they’re still estranged, Brad will always hold out hope for reconciliation.”

It has been claimed by “sources” that the actor has brought about a lot of positive changes in his life, via In Touch. On top of reporting that he has been putting his well-being and his family first, they have also claimed that he recognized his drinking problem and is deeply sorry for how things went down with his family. They have also made claims that the actor is in a good place with Vivienne Jolie-Pitt, Knox Jolie-Pitt, and Shiloh Jolie-Pitt. He does not force his children to see him and is now focused on bettering his relationship with the rest of his children, hoping for Maddox to forgive him for all that transpired.
