While Angelina Jolie’s team has been busily painting her as the mother of the year to Brad Pitt’s dropkick dad, the actress is secretly ringing her estranged hubby!
American magazine Star reports that Ange is “totally schizo” over Brad and has been “calling him, telling him she still loves him and misses him”.
“Then, in the next breath, she lashes out and says she wants nothing to do with him. She starts cursing out and telling him he’s ruined her life,” says the insider. “Brad will sometimes humor Angie when she’s flying off the handle, and sometimes they’ll talk for literally an hour. They’ll stay cordial for the most part, but invariably, Angie loses it and starts ripping into him… and eventually calls back to apologise.”
Angelina’s frenzied phone-call habit is in stark contrast to her publicity and legal team’s carefully planned strategy to ensure she is seen in the media as a role-model mum who should retain custody of their kids.
Those closest to Brad and Ange tell Star that both are being plagued by anxiety and sleepless nights after the dust from their dramatic split in September begins to settle. It’s believed Ange, 41, is struggling with being a single parent to their six children, while Brad, 53, is coming to terms with losing his whole family in one fell swoop.
“He just doesn’t know what to make of Angie anymore,” says a source. “He’s caught between whatever feelings of love he still has for her, and is being driven away by her mood swings.”
