Angelina Jolie: Having Brad Pitt-Related Tattoos Removed?
It’s been just over a month since Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from Brad Pitt, and she’s certainly not dragging her feet when it comes to unburdening herself of all vestiges of her marriage.
With the exception of her kids, Angelina is cleansing her life of everything that might remind her of Brad.
It’s a full-blown un-Braddening and everything must go – including the “permanent” reminders of their love etched into Angie’s skin.
Yes, according to Radar Online, Angie is already looking to remove both tattoos that she got in honor of Brad.
“She’s got Brad’s birthplace co-ordinates on her arm, plus a romantic design they both got for each other in Cambodia, and she wants them both gone,” an insider tells Radar.
Jolie is reportedly intent on getting the tatts removed or covered as quickly as possible for fear that she’ll weaken if she waits:
“She’s a cold-hearted machine right now and not letting herself weaken,” says the source.
The insider points out that this isn’t the first time Angie has been forced to have some ink removed following an ill-fated relationship.
Some of our younger readers might not even be aware that in the bygone pre-Brangelina days, Jolie was married to Billy Bob Thornton.
During their brief two-year marriage, Angie got two Billy Bob tatts, including one very near her lady parts.
Not surprisingly, she was quick to get them removed after the romance went south.
“She’s vowed to never ever get another romance-related tattoo again as this isn’t the first time she’s had to go through this,” says the insider.
Yeah, that’s probably for the best.
Of course, the tattoos are just a symbolic way of severing ties with Brad.
Of greater interest are the more concrete ways in which she’s cutting the actor out of her life, particularly the methods involving the couple’s six kids.
Yes, sources say the Brad vs. Angie custody battle is shaping up to be one for the ages.
Jolie reportedly wants full custody, and insiders claim Brad wasn’t allowed to see the kids for a full three weeks following the couple’s separation.
We suppose that’s not surprising, considering Brad was investigated for child abuse after Jolie filed for divorce, and her decision to end the marriage was reportedly prompted by a confrontation between Pitt and the couple’s oldest son, Maddox.
Still, it’s rare to see such scorched-earth tactics in such a high-profile divorce.
We guess Angie is proving once again that she’s not your typical Hollywood starlet.
