Angelina Jolie has become so obsessed with becoming the leader of the United Nations that it caused marital problems with Brad Pitt.
Sources close to the couple have revealed that Angelina’s political ambitions were a cause of great concern for Brad Pitt, TMZ reports.
The Maleficent star is well-known for her philanthropic work and holds the rank of Special Envoy to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.
Not only did she recently employ two advisers and get a “war room,” but Brad grew increasingly upset over Angelina’s insistence on taking her kids with her to war torn countries.
The publication reports that Brad was livid when Jolie recently took their kids to Syria to help rebuild the country.
He was reportedly happy supporting her solo charity endeavors, but taking the kids along on travels has been a bit of a no-no for him despite Jolie’s security team keeping a watchful eye over Maddox (15), Pax (12), Zahara (11), Shiloh (10) and eight-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.
“Brad was always supportive of Jolie’s solo charity work, but travels with the kids became a bone of contention for several years,” an insider told the publication.
Despite her hard work helping refugees the world over, Angelina has reportedly taken steps to exile Brad Pitt from the family home and has refused him access to their children.
“Brad has made an effort to make contact and is keen to try and improve the situation between them,” a source close to the situation told the UK’s Daily Mirror. “He’s so torn up and shattered, not only because of the divorce but because he hasn’t seen the kids and he really wants to.”
“The kids are asking to see Brad, so he is hoping to see them next week.”
