Angelina is upset with Brad's parenting style and how he is raising the kids.

If we have a look on past, we find that once Brad said it was his wife who works the hardest.  "When Angie has a day off, the first thing she does is get up and take the kids out. This is the most important 'to do' of the day," he told E! News.

"No matter how tired she might be, she plans outings for each and all. She has an incredible knack for inventing crazy experiences for them, something new, something fresh. I may be the bigger goof of the pair, but she invents the stage."

He also said he was heavily influenced by his “strict” childhood.

“I am [a disciplinarian] with the boys. Girls do no wrong so I don’t have to be,” the star, who was raised in a Southern Baptist household, explained.

“I feel like my job is to show them around, help them find what they want to do with their life, put as many things in front of them, and pull them back when they get out of line, so they know who they are.”

"When Angelina underwent her mastectomy in 2013, her health and life in general became a priority for her," they told Daily Mail.

"Her views on life changed. Suddenly she saw herself walking in her late mother’s shoes - and she was no longer that wild, fun loving woman she used to be." 

They added: "Angelina wasn’t really interested in doing any project that took her away from the children and home, but Brad was still wanting the wanderlust, adventure-filled life that first attracted him to her."

While it was also alleged Brad was worried about Angelina's slight frame, with the kids could lead to a fracture."

The couple filed for divorce in September 2016 following an incident on a plane when Brad allegedly lost control of himself and clashed with son Maddox, 16.

The Hollywood couple released a joint statement where they stated they'd agreed to settle their divorce in private.

In February 2017, Angelina spoke out about the divorce for the first time saying "we will get through this time and hopefully be a stronger family for it”.

In August 2017 it was reported that the divorce had been "put on hold" and they were even considering getting  back together after "spiritual counselling".

But in February they received court approval to continue negotiating the terms of the divorce.

In April 2018 The Sun exclusively revealed that Angelina has given Brad access to their six children and the terms of the divorce have been settled.

A source close to Angelina revealed: “The terms of the divorce are now agreed.

“They are being finalised by both legal teams, but will be filed within weeks.

“It’s a huge turnaround from where the marriage ended, especially given the claims Angelina made against Brad, but they are now on pretty good terms."

A temporary deal last year gave him visitation rights to Maddox, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 11, and Vivienne and Knox, nine.
