Brad Pitt has allegedly been shading his ex-wife, Angelina Jolie whenever he’s talking to his friends.

In its September 20 issue, Life & Style claimed that Brad Pitt has not shied away from telling his pals that the past five years of his life have been absolute hell. And he believes Jolie is to blame.

After all, the Maleficent actress still hasn’t stopped fighting to get sole physical and legal custody of her minor children. Pitt, on the other hand, wants joint custody with his kids.

“He blames Angie for being relentless, going after him at every turn. He’ll get a leg up, a small victory in court and she’ll knock him back down. It can be depressing and makes him powerless,” the source said.

The insider added that Pitt was hoping that things would finally be sorted out months ago. But this isn’t what happened.

“They seem to get really close to ending their legal battle, but then Angie balks over something and there’s another setback for Brad. He just wants it to end. Brad longs for the day when he and Angie can be civil,” the source said.

But if Pitt is struggling with his relationship with Jolie, the same cannot be said about his and Jennifer Aniston’s relationship.

The tabloid claimed that the A-listers have managed to stay friends after all these years.

Aniston previously said that she and Pitt are buddies. And the Friends star also confirmed that she talks to her ex-husband every now and then.

But even though Aniston and Pitt are nothing more than friends, some people are convinced that they are so much more.

In fact, even the tabloid claimed that the exes still have chemistry. And this was evident when they reunited at an awards show just before the pandemic hit.

However, it’s unlikely for Aniston and Pitt to ever get back together because they have both closed that chapter a long time ago.

Aniston eventually moved on from Pitt and got married to Justin Theroux. However, this marriage didn’t last either.

As for Pitt, the actor has not been in a serious relationship since his split from Jolie. But he was linked to Nicole Poturalski last year.

The actor was also linked to other A-listers but none proved to be accurate.
