Brad Pitt Losing Weight And Balding Amid Stressful Custody Battle With Angelina Jolie
The ongoing custody battle with Angelina Jolie is allegedly taking a toll on Brad Pitt.
In its Dec. 6 issue, National Enquirer claimed that Pitt only weighs 143 pounds, which is relatively low for his height. But the actor hasn’t allegedly been eating because he’s so stressed out.
The insider also claimed that Pitt has been suffering from extreme hair loss and even his fans started noticing it when he stepped out in public recently.
In order to forget about his ongoing feud with Jolie, Pitt has also been drowning himself with work. But in hindsight, this is another reason why he’s been so stressed.
“Brad has been pushing himself so hard and he’s really not taking good care of himself these days. His clothes are hanging off him, he’s washed out and exhausted the whole time and looks like a ghost. It’s like this ordeal with Angelina is killing him,” the source said.
The insider also claimed that those close to Pitt couldn’t help but be concerned because of the actor’s deteriorating health.
“Everyone’s concerned. He used to be so full of life and vigor, and it’s obvious he’s in a lot of pain right now. He’s really stressed out and depressed. You can see it in his face. He looks gaunt and his hair has even started to fall out, which is really freaking him out. He’s very self-conscious and won’t leave the house without a bucket hat to hide the hair loss,” the source said.
To make their claims more convincing, the tabloid published a photo of Pitt looking disheveled as ever. The snap shows the dad of six with a head full of blonde hair, and he’s wearing an oversized coat, pants, and shirt.
It is unclear when the photo was taken, but it doesn’t seem recent. And it’s also entirely possible that the photo was taken as part of Pitt’s role.
While it is true that his ongoing custody battle with Jolie is stressful, there’s no indication that he’s been wasting away because of it.
It is also important to note that Pitt and Jolie’s custody battle has been going on for years. And it’s unlikely for the effects of stress to only affect the Once Upon A Time In Hollywood actor now.
Pitt and Jolie’s custody battle will continue to drag on for years so it’s highly likely for the exes to have already figured out ways how to adapt to it.
