Per the source, the actor is beyond "devastated" and struggling to understand why Jolie didn't want to make it work. As we previously reported, the father of six was "open to counseling" despite the couple's ongoing issues.
One insider bluntly described the actor's state-of-mind, saying:
"He is beside himself and has been crying. He was completely caught off guard and blindsided and had no idea she would do this. He is completely devastated and beside himself. He is a shattered man."
Wow… it's clear Mr. Pitt is in a really bad place. We've never heard the star described in such a dark manner before.
On the positive side of things, the 52-year-old is choosing to focus his energies on the couple's kids:
"He's extremely upset. But he is totally focused on just being helpful and making sure his kids are doing as well as possible."
