Brad Pitt’s Friend SLAMS Angelina Jolie And Defends Brad
Melissa Etheridge has slammed Angelia Jolie, accusing the 41-year-old and her legal team of mishandling the bitter divorce row between the actress and Brad Pitt.
The 55-year-old musician revealed she was ‘ heartbroken’ for Pitt after allegations surfaced her had verbally and physically assaulted his kids. She labelled the allegations ‘ completely unfounded.’
“It breaks my heart that anyone would take something as personal as your marriage and your relationship and your rights to your children and do it as purposefully as I see it’s being done,” Etheridge told SiriusXM radio show.
The veteran rocker revealed she’d witnessed a ‘nasty’ side of Jolie, after the actress started up a relationship with Billy Bob Thornton, who at the time was engaged to actress Laura Dern.
'I was around when Angelina was not doing nice things with Billy Bob to Laura Dern. I went through that on a personal level, and then to know the side of Jennifer and Brad,' she said.
'I helped Laura move out of her house with Billy Bob — I like broke into their home to get their stuff out because it was so nasty,' she continued.
Etheridge says despite being a longtime friend of Pitt’s she lost contact with the star a few years ago and she said she’s not alone.
‘There are a lot of us who haven’t seen him in 10 years, it was hard then. We all lost a friend,’ she said.
US Weekly revealed this week the estranged couple have reached a temporary three-week agreement, which sees Jolie being given full physical custody of the children. The magazine states Pitt will be able to visit his children, if he continues to undergo therapy and drug and alcohol tests.

A source told the magazine Pitt is 'still totally crushed' and he can’t believe ‘what his life has become.’
'He’s been leaning heavily on his family and speaks to his parents and close friends and his manager constantly. His mum has been talking to him constantly' a source told the magazine.
Pitt and Jolie meet on the 2005 movie Mr & Mrs Smith and were together for 12 years.
