Popular Hollywood couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt separated in 2016. In fact, they were married just two years before the divorce.
Tensions have risen between us and our relationship has gone beyond improving, Angelina said in announcing her divorce. Now, four years after the divorce, Angelina has spoken openly about the causes of the stress.
“I separated from Brad Pitt for the sake of me and my children,” she said.
She spoke in an interview with Vogue magazine. She said, ‘I broke up with Bad for the sake of my family. It was the right decision. I can take care of my children alone. Some people took advantage of my silence and even my children heard false news about them. But then I explained it to my kids. I told them you knew the truth.’
Angelina had earlier made similar revelations in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar magazine. The last few years I have suffered a lot physically, mentally. There are many sores of this pain on my body. Brad’s addiction to alcohol and his jealousy of my success led me to decide to divorce him. That’s why he missed out on great opportunities in Hollywood, Angelina said.
