Sources close to Pitt told TMZ that the actor is angry at Jolie for allegedly spinning stories about him being a potential risk to their kids because of anger issues and substance abuse.
Pitt reportedly said Jolie 'unleashed hell' because the entire family has become targets for the paparazzi. Over the last few days, Pitt has had conversations with Jolie pleading for her to handle the divorce 'like adults', sources told the site.
Pitt said he wanted to keep the divorce under wraps for the benefit of their children, but instead, he says, Jolie has painted him as a risky dad and asked for sole physical custody.
The Hollywood stars' home is now surrounded by photographers, while the Los Angeles Police Department patrols regularly because of the media frenzy.
Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt for 'the health of her family', two years after the couple wed at their French estate Chateau Miraval.
The actress filed papers on Monday citing irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split and asking for physical custody of the couple's six children - Maddox, age 15; Pax, aged 12; Zahara, aged 11; Shiloh, aged 10; and twins Vivienne and Knox, aged eight.
