Angelina Jolie explain reasons for divorce from ex- hubby Brad Pitt
Angelina Jolie has opened up about her relationship, explaining why she filed for divorce from Brad Pitt all those years ago.
Jolie, who is one of the most talked-about women in the world, making viral news for everything from her new Marvel role to her work as a philanthropist, recently donating $1 million to a charity helping underprivileged children during the coronavirus pandemic.
Explaining how the decision was in order to sustain ‘a healthy environment’ for her children, she stated: ‘I separated for the wellbeing of my family. It was the right decision. I continue to focus on their healing.’
Angelina continued: ‘Some have taken advantage of my silence, and the children see lies about themselves in the media, but I remind them that they know their own truth and their own minds. In fact, they are six very brave, very strong young people.’
The couple have six children – Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Knox and Vivienne.
Talking about three of her six children who are adopted, the Oscar winner said, “Each is a beautiful way of becoming family. What is important is to speak with openness about all of it and to share. ‘Adoption’ and ‘orphanage’ are positive words in our home. With my adopted children, I can’t speak of pregnancy, but I speak with much detail and love about the journey to find them and what it was like to look in their eyes for the first time.”
“Honor them. Learn from them. It’s the most amazing journey to share,” she continued. “They are not entering your world — you are entering each other’s worlds.”
