We have tried to stay away from gossip and to respect the Jolie Pitt familys privacy as much as we could during the process of the divorce and everything that has been surrounding it. There has been many different type of rumours and malicious ones and we didn’t want to post about them.
One of the rumours though, was that the reason for the divorce was substance abuse from Brads side and in this new very candid interview that Brad Pitt did for the magazine GQ Style and the Summer 2017 issue, he opens up about his problems with drinking. It’s a very open interview and well worth a read, also to get to know what he wants to do and change for the future as well as his upcoming projects.
For all the bad things been said about Angelina it’s somewhat bittersweet to finally get to know what happened and at least some of the reasons. I hope the family can continue together in the respectful way as they have so far and I wish them all the happiness in the world.

When he was on a flight to Los Angeles aboard a private plane, there was a reported altercation between Pitt and one of his six children, 15-year-old Maddox. An anonymous phone call was made to the authorities, which triggered an FBI investigation (ultimately closed with no charges). Five days later, his wife, Angelina Jolie, filed for divorce. By then, everything in Pitt’s world was in free fall. It wasn’t just a public-relations crisis—there was a father suddenly deprived of his kids, a husband without wife. And here he is, alone, a 53-year-old human father/former husband smack in the middle of an unraveled life, figuring out how to mend it back together.
Do you think if the past six months hadn’t happened you’d be in this place eventually? That it would have caught up with you?
I think it would have come knocking, no matter what.
People call it a midlife crisis, but this isn’t the same—
No, this isn’t that. I interpret a midlife crisis as a fear of growing old and fear of dying, you know, going out and buying a Lamborghini. [pause] Actually—they’ve been looking pretty good to me lately! [laughs]
