Angelina Jolie has turned to 'magic hexes' and 'voodoo' in her bitter custody and money battle with ex-Brad Pitt, GLOBE outrageously reports.
Sources say the 43-year-old, who plays an evil sorcerer in Disney's Maleficent, is 'using magic to ward off stress'.
'This is her way of protecting herself against haters,' a snitch tells GLOBE. 'Ange likes to have these quiet moments where she spends time by herself and channels energy.'
However, the Jolie insider insists to GLOBE that the actress is not practising 'dark magic.'
'She's resorting to healing spells and voodoo in a desperate bid to relieve stress,' they say.
'It's not that she means ill will towards enemies.'
'She's sliding back to the magical traditions of voodoo to calm her nerves. She does a lot of chanting and meditation.'
According to GLOBE's insider, the actress spends some time each day 'sitting in a quiet room' to get in touch with her spiritual side and sometimes says incantations.
'It's all about shielding herself from harm and helping her get through this difficult time,' adds the insider.
Angelina Jolie is yet to respond to GLOBE's report.
