Pitt is staying for the kids: friend


HE claims to have predicted their relationship. But Brad Pitt’s psychic now says the Hollywood star does not love Angelina Jolie.

Ron Bard insists the actor feels “boxed in” but will not leave her for the sake of their six children – and because it would harm his image.

Mr Bard made his startling claims on Thursday as he spoke in depth for the first time about his friendship with Pitt.

He insists that the 50-year-old actor is still in love with his first wife, Friends star Jennifer Aniston, 45.

But he believes Pitt has already secretly married Miss Jolie, 39, and the couple will have another three children. Pitt was introduced to the psychic by Miss Aniston in 2004. Mr Bard, 54, claims he told the actor in 2005 he would meet someone who would “change your whole life” while filming Mr & Mrs Smith. That year, Pitt left Miss Aniston for Miss Jolie.

But asked whether the couple are still in love, Mr Bard said: “At the end of the day, whether [Pitt is] in love or he’s not in love is not the question, the question is he’s a man who made a commitment to six children and he’s keeping his commitment to those six children. Whether he loves her or not, [that’s] another story.

“Brad’s the type of guy who finds his happiness within his own soul, he does what he thinks right, he’s a man’s man.”

“I think [Miss Jolie is] very clever, I think she’s boxed him in, but he doesn’t care about that because I think he loves the children more than the relationship.

“If you”re a big star and you leave someone like Jennifer Aniston the world trashes you for years, now you leave six kids? What’s your image… you”re stuck. Looking at it... I think you have six kids with someone there’s a certain amount of love.

“It’s got to a point with celebrity, not Brad but just to make a general statement, a celebrity has to think of their image.”

Mr Bard said that, despite his claims, he believes the couple will have more children: “You can bet on it, for sure. I think we”re going to hit nine.”

Pitt and Miss Jolie announced their engagement in 2012 and in a magazine interview earlier this year, Miss Jolie said of her relationship with Pitt: “I never thought I”d have children, I never thought I”d be in love, I never thought I”d meet the right person. Coming from a broken home you kind of accept that certain things feel like a fairytale, and you just don’t look for them.”

The pair have not announced wedding plans but Mr Bard believes the ceremony may have been carried out in secret – or if not, it will be “pretty soon, in the next few months”.

Despite saying he foresaw the Brangelina relationship, he denies rumours he advised Pitt to leave Miss Aniston.

He said: “The elegance and beauty of the soul (of Brad when he was with Jen) was just so on the money, so I think he was great where he was, the fact that he turned to the left turn that was completely his own decision.

“I only asked questions: “if this, if this, if this, if that…” I didn’t say “divorce Jennifer so you can go with this hot chick”.

“I just brought clarity and then people make their own choice. I don’t think he ever disliked her, I don’t think he ever had a bad bone in his body for Jennifer. I think he always loved her, I think he still loves her, but there’s a lot of water under that bridge.”

Representatives for Pitt and Miss Jolie did not respond to requests to comment on Mr Bard’s claims on Thursday. - Daily Mail
