Could it be true that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are struggling right now because of their children’s alleged rivalry? Could it be one of the reasons for the unending divorce rumors surrounding their marriage?


Amid the several rumors plaguing the relationship of the “Mr. & Mrs. Smith” stars, recent speculation hinted that their strength as a couple and parents is being tested. According to OK! Magazine, the two have to deal with their children fighting each other over fame. The kids are said to be jealous of one another.

According to the controversial report, Zahara was jealous and “fuming” that it was seven-year-old Vivienne who was given the chance to act with their mom in the 2014 fantasy movie “Maleficent.” Allegedly, a source also revealed that 14-year-old Maddox is as envious of nine-year-old Shiloh for having “stolen his limelight with his mom.”

The report by “OK!” also claimed 11-year-old Zahara and 12-year-old Pax are both “desperate for fame and fortune.” If this is true, the Jolie-Pitt family might really be in shambles. If the parents will not be able to handle this ruckus fast, they might end up fighting each other and call for a divorce.

Gossip Cop, however, pointed out that this is another one of the fabricated stories about the happy family. According to the magazine site, the children of the 52-year-old “World War Z” actor and 40-year-old “Lara Croft: Tomb Raider” are not jealous of each other. The site reported that a source told them that there is “no truth” to these speculations.

Apart from Gossip Cop’s clarifications, the family was recently spotted bonding on Saturday. Mail Online disclosed that the A-list couple went shopping for toys with Zahara and Vivienne in a local toy shop on Saturday.

Shopping must have been successful, because the family’s security guard was spotted coming out of the store carrying six bags teeming with toys presumably picked out by their daughters.

Do you think there is truth to the speculation about the children of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie?
