Angelina Jolie is allegedly embroiled in a bitter family feud with Brad Pitt‘s mom over where the Brangelina kids will spend Christmas once again. Showbiz Spy is hyping the war angle, claiming Angie doesn’t want to spend the Holidays in the Midwest with Brad’s family -- ever. And, of course, since they are her children it may just be a simple case of mother knows best.
“As usual, Angie has no desire to spend her holidays in the Midwest, something Brad’s mom, Jane, finds rude and insulting. But Angie couldn’t care less,” a source told the celebrity gossip outlet. “They have such different opinions on everything. Brad’s parents are extremely right-wing and religious.
Jolie, of course, leans far to the left as an internationally famous human rights advocate. When she's with Brad's parents, "Angie has to bite her tongue to keep the peace..." say inside sources.
“It’s been a sore point for Brad’s mom for years... [Angelina (apparently) not wanting to let the children spend their Christmas holiday in the conservative Midwest.]"
“She loves to have all her grandkids together, but that rarely happens – and she says it’s Angie’s doing." -- not her precious Brad's.
Is Angelina Jolie really blocking her future mother-in-law's rights as a grandparent? Perhaps.
After all, she was estranged from her own father Jon Voight for years. Many of her friends and acquaintances site his being a pompous Republic windbag as a tremendous source of their father-daughter conflict.
To that end, if Brad Pitt's parents fail to respect her wishes regarding how to raise her own kids by insisting on sneaking in tons of little right-wing barbs and jabs against her politics into their casual conversations with the kids, then she may in fact have a justifiable reason to tell them to get stuffed.
It's better to have stuffed turkey for Christmas in your own home anyhow that to suffer through family drama. There's a rumor that Santa puts anyone on the naughty list who talks politics or religion with relatives who they know in advance don't have the common sense not to talk about contentious subjects during out-of-town visits.
