Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie shocked the masses with their separation announcement, but Brad is finally opening up on that difficult time last September. After a very public and dramatic split—their were reports of a physical altercation involving one of the kids—Brad is now admitting that alcohol may have been an issue in his marriage to Jolie.“I was boozing too much, It’s just become a problem. And I’m really happy it’s been half a year now, which is bittersweet, but I’ve got my feelings in my fingertips again.”
The actor who let’s face it appears gaunt, but is slowing regaining his former self after a ‘weird time’ and he’s getting therapy. “I just started therapy. I love it, I love it. I went through two therapists to get to the right one.” But things weren’t so positive when Child Services called him up. “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. 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.” Hopefully things are getting better for the family.
