Angelina Jolie has claimed she feared for the safety of her “whole family” during her marriage to Brad Pitt. The ‘Maleficent’ star has previously alleged her ex-husband was verbally and physically abusive with their children.
Angelina Jolie claims she feared for family’s safety
The actress has previously alleged her ex-husband was verbally and physically abusive with their children – Maddox, 20, Pax, 17, Zahara, 16, Shiloh, 15, and 13-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne – including an incident on a private plane involving eldest son Maddox.
And in a new interview, Angelina has suggested she was scared for her children’s wellbeing while married to the ‘Fight Club’ star.
The 46-year-old actress was asked by The Guardian newspaper why she decided to write her upcoming book on children’s rights, and she admitted she “can’t speak about” it because of her own legal situation.
The reporter then asked Angelina if she feared for the safety of her children, and the star replied: “Yes, for my family. My whole family.”
Angelina Jolie also insisted the issues in her marriage were “much more complicated” than just the plane incident with Maddox.
She added: “It doesn’t start with the violation. It’s so much more complicated than that.
“It took a lot for me to be in a position where I felt I had to separate from the father of my children.
“I mean, in some ways it’s been the last decade. There’s a lot I can’t say.”
