During their time together, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt had a shared enthusiasm for a bustling and joyous large family, ultimately raising six children. They believed the pack brought a lively vibrancy to what might otherwise have been mundane days in their lives. However, after their separation in 2016, the actress secured primary custody of their six children. Now although, the reasons behind the end of Brangelina were partially shrouded, some emerged, presenting a shocking revelation. Jolie pointedly accused her former partner of allegedly subjecting their children to both physical and emotional abuse.
Thus looking back, Pitt’s 2013 Esquire interview has aged like milk. In the interview, the actor expressed his profound affection for having his kids around him and how he loves being surrounded by their commotion.
Brad Pitt Loves a Full House
In 2103, the actor Brad Pitt did an interview with Esquire where he revealed his undying love for his family. He said,
“I always thought that if I wanted to do a family, I wanted to do it big,–I wanted there to be chaos in the house.”
Standing among the most renowned stars worldwide, the actor yearned for an anchor, something to ground him and bring him happiness beyond the film sets. Despite a hectic schedule, he believed that a bustling household was the source of his contentment, making every ounce of his efforts meaningful.
Upon encountering his then-love, Angelina Jolie, he found that she also cherished the concept of a big family. This mutual desire drew him even closer to her. He realized that his dreams were on the verge of turning into reality, and they indeed did. As a high-profile couple, they welcomed three biological children and also embraced three through adoption, forming a joyful unit of eight. The actor further continued by saying,
“There’s a constant chatter in our house, whether it’s giggling or screaming or crying or banging. I love it. I love it. I love it. I hate it when they’re gone. I hate it. Maybe it’s nice to be in a hotel room for a day — ‘Oh, nice, I can finally read a paper.’ But then, by the next day, I miss that cacophony, all that life.”
In contrast to those who shy away from chaos, he had a fondness for diving headlong into it. Even though he cherished the rare moments of solitude from the kids, he found himself yearning for their presence as each second ticked by.
Angelina Jolie Claimed Brad Pitt Was Abusive Towards His Children
In a striking move, Angelina Jolie lodged a counter-accusation against her former spouse, Brad Pitt, some time back in a court battle regarding a winery. She unveiled fresh revelations, shedding light on what she depicted as his abusive conduct during a private flight in 2016 from France to California. This disturbing incident, as per her account, marked a turning point in their relationship, eventually culminating in their marriage. According to her filings,
“Pitt choked one of the children and struck another in the face–grabbed Jolie by the head and shook her, —he poured beer on Jolie—, he poured beer and red wine on the children.”
Further, according to her legal submission, the F.B.I. investigator who probed the accusations of the actor’s physical assault on Jolie and their children during the 2016 plane incident, “concluded that the government had probable cause to charge Pitt with a federal crime for his conduct that day.”
Her lawyer also claimed,
“She has gone to great lengths to try to shield their children from reliving the pain Pitt inflicted on the family that day,–But when Pitt filed this lawsuit seeking to reassert control over Jolie’s financial life and compel her to rejoin her ex-husband as a frozen-out business partner, Pitt forced Jolie to publicly defend herself on these issues for the first time.”
The specific details of what transpired on that fateful day aboard the plane remain undisclosed to the public. While the FBI wrapped up its inquiry since then, no charges have been officially reported or filed.
