Peace is over, guys – the former couple are back at war

We finally thought we’d reached a new chapter in the endless tale of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s messy divorce – one in which they were actually settling their differences.

But last week, Ange re-drew the battle-lines, as she lashed out at Brad for stopping her from living abroad, and also spoke about the “pain” and “harm” she’s experienced over the past decade.

Unsurprisingly, we’re told that Brad’s “beside himself with rage” – and he’s ready to “fight back”.

According to an insider close to Brad, 55, the actor was “totally caught off guard” by Angelina’s explosive interview with Harper’s Bazaar, in which she not-so-subtly blamed him for keeping her in LA.

“I would love to live abroad and will do so as soon as my children are 18,” the 44-year-old said. “Right now, I’m having to base where their father chooses to live.”

She also hinted at the strain she’s been under, saying she has “invisible” scars in addition to the “visible” as a result of her mastectomy and hysterectomy.

“The invisible ones are harder to wrestle with,” she said. “Life takes many turns. Sometimes you get hurt, you see those you love in pain, and you can’t be as free and open as your spirit desires.”

Our source tells us that Brad was “absolutely livid” when he read her comments.

“He couldn’t believe she’d go so public,” we’re told. “What upsets him the most is that she’s airing all this highly personal stuff for everyone to read, including the kids. He’s convinced that Ange is trying to smear his name and says he’s bent over backwards to accommodate her.

"He can point to countless times when she took the kids for long stretches abroad, but he doesn’t think it’s right that they should live their lives on the road.”

The former couple have been at war over custody of their six children – Maddox, 18, Pax, 15, Zahara, 14, Shiloh, 13 and 11-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox – ever since splitting three years ago.

And while it seemed they’d reached a breakthrough over the summer, with Angelina reportedly allowing Brad to look after the kids while she was away filming, we’re told relations are now more strained than ever – and Brad’s not taking it lying down.

“He’s lawyering up again and figuring out where he can hit back with his own side of the story,” we’re told. “As far as he’s concerned, this is a declaration of war from Ange - all bets are off."
