The household of the former power couple, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt has been rumored to be in disarray according to several employees who have come forward claiming that the two can be considered as bad parenting examples when it comes to their kids. The couple is currently trudging through the aftereffects of a messy divorce that was filed by Angelina Jolie against her ex-husband Brad Pitt in 2016 and finalized in 2019.
Even though the pair has done very little to tone down their public fight over their once-shared winery, the celebrity couple has been known to be subdued when it comes to their six children. Reports from former employees suggest that their parenting style cultivates an unhealthy lifestyle for the Jolie-Pitt children and their laid-back personalities are more of a fault than a quality in the uber-cool celebrity household.
Angelina Jolie Accused of Being a Bad Mother to 6 Children
According to a former nanny from the Jolie-Pitt household, the pair could be somewhat of an unconventional duo when it comes to parenting their children. Despite the media posts and public displays of love, respect, and adoration, the domestic situation seems to portray differently according to the employee who claimed to Star Magazine:
“It’s like they’re living in a hippie commune most of the time because Angie doesn’t believe in rules. She thinks it’s important for the children to have freedom of expression, but that doesn’t always work well. Angie and Brad don’t know how to say no to their kids. And with six of them screaming at once, it’s just easier to give in than fight.”
Reports similar to this have flooded the internet with some claiming that the kids freely swear and curse all the time, drive around the property unchecked, binge on junk food, and are disinterested in progressing their education. However, most are unverified claims that have been made by former nannies and ex-employees and from a time when most of the Jolie-Pitt children were barely teenagers.
The Glittering Origins of the Jolie-Pitt Domestic Life
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have been in the limelight as powerful celebrity couples since their 2005 advent of romance and domesticity. Their scandalous beginnings and the 12 years of a blissful (and glamorous) relationship instantly made Brangelina a crowd favorite. Soon after, their children were brought up under the equally seething public scrutiny that comes with being raised under the roof of two of the most famous Hollywood A-listers of this generation.
The love and affection that Angelina Jolie harbors for her and Pitt’s children — Maddox, Zahara, Shiloh, Pax, and twins Knox and Vivienne — have never been kept shy from the media’s piercing gaze over the years. Time and again, the mother of 6 has elucidated her being in complete awe of them, and how they have grown up into individually wonderful people.
Of the six children, Shiloh, Knox, and Vivienne were biologically born to Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, with the former being born in Namibia while the latter two in Nice, France. Maddox Chivan, the oldest, was adopted by Jolie in 2002 from Cambodia where she filmed Lara Croft: Tomb Raider. Zahara Marley was adopted from an Ethiopian orphanage in 2005, while Pax Thien joined the family in 2007 after being adopted by Jolie from Vietnam.
