BRAD PITT is "heartbroken" after his ex Angelina Jolie's "abuse" claim in divorce court as the actor now feels "isolated" from his children.

The former pair, who have been at odds since 2016, share six kids and continue to fight over custody.

An insider close to Brad, 57, told Page Six: “Brad is heartbroken that Angelina has gone that route. There’s a lot of emotion left after their marriage.

“He has taken responsibility for his actions and owned up to his past issues, he’s stopped drinking."

The Sun previously confirmed that Angelina, 45, filed court papers on March 12 to “offer proof and support" of "testimony regarding domestic violence.”

However, the Maleficent actress made no indication the "domestic violence" matter mentioned in the documents was related to her estranged husband.

Angelina, who shares Maddox, 19, Zahara, 16, Pax, 17, Shiloh, 14, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 12, with Brad, also offered "proof" in support of their minor children testifying at trial.

The source continued and told the outlet: “The marriage was very passionate and toxic at times and — like all couples — they had fights, but also shared many good times together.

“He has talked about his drink and drug problems during the time they were together.”

The insider added: "Brad and his camp has never attacked Angelina. But his camp feels this leak was calculated to sway opinion ahead of the conclusion of their trial.

“Brad feels like he’s being more and more isolated from his children, and he’s devastated about it.”

While Brad has never been arrested or charged for any offense during his marriage to the A-list star, soon after Angelina filed for divorce in 2016, it was reported that the Once Upon A Time in Hollywood actor was allegedly involved in an incident with their son Maddox while on a private jet.

At the time, witnesses claimed Brad was “out of control” and allegedly clashed with the then 15-year-old.

After a review, the FBI and Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family cleared Brad of any wrongdoing.

Earlier this week, Us Weekly reported that the ex couple's eldest child Maddox "testified against" his dad in court.

An insider told the outlet: “Maddox has already given testimony as [an] adult in the ongoing custody dispute and it wasn’t very flattering toward Brad.

“He doesn’t use Pitt as his last name on documents that aren’t legal and instead uses Jolie. Maddox wants to legally change his last name to Jolie, which Angelina has said she doesn’t support.”

Brad and Angelina's current trial will determine custody of their children and to divide their estate.

Back in August 2020, Brad was linked German model Nicole Poturalski, 27,when they were seen boarding a private jet together back in August.

Although, just three months later, a source claimed to ET that neither of them took the relationship seriously and decided to end it.
