Hollywood’s ex-couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are now officially single and are in the process of finalizing divorce settlements. But what may have led to the divorce of the former A-list power couple?

After 12 years of being together, one of the world’s most favorite couples now turned into bitter exes battling over the custody of their six children. Below are the possible reasons behind the Brangelina divorce.

Brad Pitt’s Alleged Affair With Actress Marion Cotillard

Back in 2016, Pitt starred in a periodical drama film titled “Allied” opposite actress Marion Cotillard. Incidentally, it was the year when the Jolie-Pitt marital problems broke the internet. A source claimed that Jolie hired a private investigator to keep an eye on Pitt as instinct told her that Pitt may be cheating on her while shooting “Allied.”

Cotillard posted a message on her Instagram denying the rumors surrounding her and Pitt. Jolie never confirmed nor denied hiring an investigator nor whether a third party was involved.

Brad Pitt’s Drinking And Substance Abuse

Both Jolie and Pitt admitted prior to their marriage that they enjoyed drinking and, in the case of Pitt, using cocaine and smoking weed. However, Jolie firmly believes in setting a good example for her six children and has stopped drinking since marrying Pitt. Pitt, however, continued to live his old merry ways, which has affected him as a father and a husband.

TMZ reported that Pitt’s too much alcohol drinking and substance use have led to a more serious problem for Jolie — his anger management. Jolie considered that Pitt’s anger issue was dangerous for the kids. An airplane incident involving Maddox stepping up between a fighting Jolie and Pitt reportedly was the tipping point for Jolie to say enough is enough for Pitt.

Brad Pitt And Angelina Jolie Are Different From Each In More Ways

Jolie opened up to Vogue and shared some reasons behind the decision that shattered Brangelina fans around the world. The “Wanted” actress revealed that Pitt has a different parenting style from hers. But parenting is not the only gap that ultimately separated them.

Jolie also blamed Pitt’s alcohol addiction as a factor that led up to their divorce as it came to an extent where Pitt was losing projects and getting jealous of her. Pitt prioritized acting over family, while Jolie was ready to settle down with the family.

Brad Pitt Has Hang-Ups With His Exes

There were two rumours floating on this category. The first sounds ridiculous but is worth mentioning as it may be one of the reasons that may have pissed Jolie off. Allegedly, a Morning USA reporter claimed that Pitt called out Gwyneth Paltrow’s name on his sleep, which made Jolie furious.

Another rumor involving Pitt and his exes is, this time around, with ex-wife Jennifer Aniston. Pitt allegedly reconnected with his ex-wife while having marital problems with Jolie. But several sites immediately shut down this rumor.
