There have obviously been a ton of rumors about why Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are getting divorced, ranging from plausible to ridiculous but still plausible. This one might make the most sense out of all of them: Brad really was worried about how Angie’s UN work would affect the kids. In the past 15 years, Angie has been super involved with the UN’s work with refugees, first as a Goodwill Ambassador and now as a Special Envoy to the Commissioner. Big words are hard, but this basically means that she travels to all the places on earth where you’re least likely to find a decent spin class.
This is all well and good, but you might also remember that Angelina happens to be a mother of six. Apparently, she’s taken the kiddos to some pretty sketchy areas, including Lebanon and Iraq. Yikes. We’re not like, experts on the Middle East or anything, but they warn you about rockets enough when you go on Birthright that keeping the kids out of Lebanon might be smart.
Brad was mad about all of that, but sources say that Angelina isn’t done and has aspirations to be the head of the UN. This is probably a pretty lofty goal, but she’s crazy so who knows, she could do it. Either way, she should probably try to keep the kids out of war zones from now on.
