The Brangelina Brood may be in therapy for awhile.
On Thursday, it was reported that Angelina Jolie has reached out to Brad Pitt in the hopes he’ll agree to meet with a “trauma” specialist alongside their kids in order to deal with the alleged plane incident from a few months ago. Huh.
According to TMZ, the Maleficent star’s lawyer sent Pitt’s legal team an email last week where the A-lister requested they all “participate in joint sessions with a trauma specialist so that they may learn how to best support and interact with their children.” Well this isn’t necessarily a bad idea!
As you may recall, the Fight Club actor was investigated by the Department of Children and Family Services and the FBI over a private plane incident where he was accused of getting into a fight with his son Maddox. The Hollywood hunk has since been cleared by both organizations.
Nonetheless, it seems whatever actually went down on the aircraft has seriously impacted the Jolie-Pitt kiddos, as Angie’s request makes it clear the current group therapy is not working. As you may recall, back in September, the former flames agreed to attend family therapy sessions as a part of their temporary child custody arrangement.
However, it’s said Brad isn’t necessarily happy with how the meetings with the therapist are affecting his visitation rights. To make matters worse, both Maddox and Pax allegedly aren’t interested in seeing their poppa. Sources claim the eldest two boys walked out of one session and have even refused to attend other meetups. Oof.
Currently, it’s unknown if the Allied performer has responded to the By The Sea director’s request. We have a feeling we’ll find out soon enough…
