A long-serving member of the Pitt-Jolie staff told The Sun's Dan Wootton: 'The three are in cahoots together and it’s Brad who loses out.

'I’m sure that they find it intoxicating because when she wants to be Angie is incredibly intoxicating.'
MailOnline has contacted representatives for Brad, Angelina and Baroness Helic.
Angelina, 41, has reportedly been relying on the advice of her two close friends in London who reportedly told her she could become Secretary General of the U.N.
TMZ alleged that the pair even advised Angelina to involve the L.A. County Dept of Child and Family Services officials regarding Brad's alleged altercation with son Maddox on a private jet, a case which has since been closed by the DCFS and FBI.

A source told The Sun that Angelina went from making decisions with Brad to making them with her advisers Helic and Dalton.

Set up in London in the spring of 2015, JPDH works on issues from women’s rights to refugees, health, education and violence against women.
Lady Helic and Dalton are said to be paid £300,000 a year — thought to be around triple what they were previously paid as special advisers to Hague.
A source said: ‘They are the brains behind Angelina’s damehood and her honorary professor title at LSE.’

It was reported by TMZ he either slightly struck or tried to strike their eldest son Maddox, who she adopted before she met Pitt.
The FBI and the DCFS became involved and launched an investigation. Both investigations have since ended.
Jolie's rep said the actress was 'relieved' that the investigation had concluded.
'Angelina said from the beginning that she felt she had to take action for the health of the family and is relieved that after their eight-week involvement, the DCFS is now satisfied the safeguards are put in place that will allow the children to heal,' the statement read.
Angelina still has primary custody of the children.
