Although Zahara has made more friends on campus, it appears that her relationship with Brad, 59, has weakened. This could be because of the drama surrounding the 'Tomb Raider' star's turbulent divorce from the father of her six children.
Accustions against Brad Pitt
According to OK!, in 2016, the same year she filed for divorce, Angelina accused her ex-husband of abusing her physically and verbally as well as some of their children.
The FBI looked into the claims, but nothing much was done. The brunette beauty was not pleased with the outcome, which is one of the reasons she is attempting to pass a new law requiring domestic violence training for judges and other court personnel, as reported by Okmagazine.
The humanitarian thinks Pitt's group bought off people in the legal system to escape unharmed, according to another source.
The former couple is also at odds over their French winery, with the Hollywood hunk claiming his ex-wife violated their agreement by selling her share to a Russian oligarch. Angelina, meanwhile, thinks Brad is abusing their brand's success to further his own interests.
