Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt divorced nearly five years ago, but the drama surrounding them hasn't cooled down. According to media reports, the actor plans to prove his superiority over his ex-wife, leveraging his undeniable "popularity."

At one point, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were considered an exceptionally well-matched couple in Hollywood. Whenever they appeared together, they always sparked immense emotions. Although the couple tied the knot in 2014, just two years later, news of a crisis in their relationship surfaced in the media.

Their divorce turned out to be exceptionally tumultuous. The public airing of their dirty laundry lasted for several years. There was no shortage of numerous conflicts or accusations of abuse against Pitt. Although a lot of time has passed since the divorce, the media still provides further updates about the struggles of the former spouses, including the fight for child custody. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are parents to six children, who stayed with their mom after the divorce.

Brad Pitt will beat Angelina Jolie in the "popularity contest"

Despite the passage of time, the atmosphere between the star duo remains heated. According to media reports, the conflict between Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt may also involve people from the film industry. They will have to pick a side to work with. A source from the "In Touch" portal claims that the former spouses' "popularity" battle may be won by the actor, who supposedly has significant connections.

Brad has so much power in Hollywood, which is one thing that’s tough for Angelina to compete with him over. She does have a few friends and allies, like Salma Hayek and Ellen Pompeo, along with a handful of studio bosses, but for the most part, she’s not winning any popularity contests in Hollywood, whereas Brad’s the golden boy - claims the source quoted by "In Touch."

According to the source, Brad Pitt plans to "go out of his way" to make his ex-wife uncomfortable. The "popularity contest" is said to be his strong point.

Brad’s always going to have more sway socially, and he’s gleeful about wielding that power against Angelina. When Oscar season rolls around, she’s going to have to hit all the events because the buzz is she’ll be nominated for her new biopic [Maria], and you can count on Brad being there too if only to rub it in her face how well-loved he is - shares the source.
