Brad Pitt ‘Heartbroken’ Over Angelina Jolie Abuse Allegation Leak

Brad Pitt is heartbroken over the leak from the Angelina Jolie camp that she is ready to testify about alleged spousal abuse in their trial over child custody, according to insiders.

While the Hollywood couple is already legally divorced, they are still battling over custody of their six children. They are in the midst of a trial in front of a private judge.

But on March 12, Jolie, 45, filed court documents indicating that both she and her children are willing to offer testimony and “proof and authority in support” of her allegations against Pitt, 57.

The court documents, in this case, are private and sealed but were leaked to Hollywood blog The Blast.

A source close to Pitt said: “Brad is heartbroken that Angelina has gone that route. There’s a lot of emotion left after their marriage.

“He has taken responsibility for his actions and owned up to his past issues, he’s stopped drinking.

“The marriage was very passionate and toxic at times and — like all couples — they had fights, but also shared many good times together.

“He has talked about his drink and drug problems during the time they were together.”

Pitt has never been arrested or charged for any offense during his marriage to Jolie, nor were there any police reports made about any allegations of spousal abuse.

There was a widely-publicized incident on board a private jet with his family, but he was never charged.

“Brad and his camp has never attacked Angelina. But his camp feels this leak was calculated to sway opinion ahead of the conclusion of their trial,” the source said.

“Brad feels like he’s being more and more isolated from his children, and he’s devastated about it.”

It is hoped the trial will end next month and the judge — which Angelina has tried and so far not succeeded in removing from the case — will rule on custody. Judge John W. Ouderkirk — who actually married Pitt and Jolie — has denied any personal bias or prejudice concerning any party or attorney in this case.

Sources tell Page Six that the kids have been interviewed by court-appointed therapists, but it is believed recent reports that eldest son Maddox, 19, gave negative testimony against Pitt are untrue.

His relationship with Maddox has been described as “difficult,” which Pitt is said to be heartbroken over.

In 2016, Pitt was cleared of child abuse allegations made by the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services regarding an incident between him and Maddox on a plane from the U.S. to Europe.

After the DCFS conducted a lengthy investigation, the conclusion reached was there was “not inappropriate physical contact” between them.

The incident led the “Maleficent” actress to file for divorce in September 2016 after two years of marriage. They were declared legally divorced in 2019.

Eight months later, Pitt told GQ, “I was really on my back and chained to a system when Child Services was called. And you know, after that, we’ve been able to work together to sort this out,” he explained.

“We’re both doing our best. I heard one lawyer say, ‘No one wins in court — it’s just a matter of who gets hurt worse.’ And it seems to be true, you spend a year just focused on building a case to prove your point and why you’re right and why they’re wrong, and it’s just an investment in vitriolic hatred. I just refuse.

“And fortunately my partner in this agrees. It’s just very, very jarring for the kids, to suddenly have their family ripped apart.”

While Pitt was cleared of charges, he added the well-being of his six children is of the utmost priority.

“There’s a lot to tell them because there’s understanding the future, there’s understanding the immediate moment and why we’re at this point, and then it brings up a lot of issues from the past that we haven’t talked about. So our focus is that everyone comes out stronger and better people — there is no other outcome,” Pitt said.

Reps for Jolie didn’t respond to requests for comment. Reps for Pitt declined to comment

The trial is inching towards a conclusion. Many believe that the private judge who Jolie has tried to remove from the case will make their ruling this month. Pitt is currently fighting for 50/50 custody of their children.
