But now that the divorce is officially happening and there is no rumour this time, reports carrying reasons behind this are doing rounds of media. Reportedly, Angelina was miffed with Brad’s temper issues and his way of parenting. Apparently, Pitt was also in substance abuse and his wife Angelina thought it would be a negative impact on kids.
Not only this, Angelina reportedly hired a private detective to know if Brad is fooling around in sets or no. When Angelina got a whiff of Brad’s affairs (particularly the one with French actress Marion Cotillard); she decided it was the final straw.
