London [India], Nov. 8 (ANI
): Looks like the Brangelina
split is taking a heavy toll on Brad Pitt
as he recently pulled out of all his ' promotional commitments
' regarding his new and upcoming movie ' Allied
The 52-year-old actor who portrays the lead role Max Vatan in the forthcoming romantic thriller is reportedly refusing to do any interviews, press junkets or chat show appearances following his public divorce with Angelina Jolie
, reports the Daily Mail.
"This was supposed to be the start of a big campaign push for Brad to finally win an acting Oscar but there's too much controversy for him to risk any publicity," a source told The Sun, adding, "It also doesn't help that there were rumours he had an affair with his co-star Marion Cotillard
, which both deny."
The source claimed that loads of chat show studios are "gutted" as they had Pitt booked to come on and dozens of journalists had to "scrap" their interviews with the actor.
"They know it's important he been seen to support the film but this is a huge crisis for him and the current tactic is to lie low. If he does appear, he'll not say a word to any media and sneak in a side door," the source added.
For the unversed, Jolie filed for divorce from her husband in September following an alleged argument between Pitt and their eldest son Maddox during a flight.
The 'Maleficent' actress recently acquired custody
of all six children- 15-year-old Maddox Jolie-Pitt, 12-year-old Pax Jolie-Pitt, 11-year-old Zahara Jolie-Pitt, 10-year-old Shiloh Jolie-Pitt, and 8-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne Jolie-Pitt, while their father would continue with 'therapeutic visits'. (ANI
