Andrew Morton, who has written unauthorized biography of Angelina Jolie called "Angelina: An Unauthorized Biography", said that Jolie's partner Brad Pitt "calls himself Mr. Mom." During an appearance on "Fox & Friends" on Monday, August 2, Morton claimed Jolie used her adopted kid Maddox to "bait" Pitt away from Jennifer Aniston while filming "Mr and Mrs Smith".
"Well, it's kind of playing happy family. He's a great caregiver, this Brad Pitt... So here's Maddox, this cute little kid, playing around and it draws somebody in," Morton told the show's hosts. "And in all fairness, friends of Angelina, all said it was Brad that made the [pass] in that relationship."
"Psychologically, she makes men almost compromise themselves to cheat on their girlfriends, or cheat on their wives in order to be with her," Morton further claimed. "The only man that's never rejected her is Maddox."
Morton went on to disclose that Jolie was abandoned by her mother Marcheline Bertrand. The controversial biographer said, "In a way [abandonment] explains so much: the cutting, the drugs, the kind of bi-sexuality, an awful lot in her life is explained in those formative months. Her mother took it out on Angelina because she looked like [Jon] Voight."
According to Morton, the abandonment led Jolie cutting her "neck... thighs... breast with a knife" later in life. He stated, "It's weird but for someone like Angelina, who's in this psychological trauma, it's a release and that's one of the central aspects of the book. She went through a bit of a depression, suicidal thoughts and on one occasion, she said she hired a hit-man and she was going to pay by installments."
"Angelina: An Unauthorized Biography" itself has been released on Saturday, July 31, earlier than the scheduled date, August 3. St. Martin's Press decided to publish the book before August because details of the tome have been leaking so furiously.
