Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie reportedly disagreed over one another's parenting styles.

Angelina filed for divorce from 'Fury' actor Brad on Monday (20.09.16) and it has now been claimed they problems handling their "boisterous" and "hard to handle" children, Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and eight-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.

Brad, 52, believes Angelina, 41, is far too soft with the kids and lets them do whatever they want, something she resented.

A source told DailyMail.com: "The children can all be a nightmare apart from Maddox. He's really, really sweet and nice. Angie believes everything the children tell her. They can do no wrong in her eyes, everything they say becomes the gospel truth.

"They're very hot and cold with all the staff. They're very physical and boisterous and hard to handle - especially because there's six of them. The eleven year old [Zahara], is the one who instigates it all.

"One of the team threw a towel which accidentally hit Vivienne and caused her to trip up. Then Zahara was instructing her what to tell Angie - to say she was eating a biscuit at the time and nearly choked because of it."

The claims come after a source revealed Brad has "always been a stricter" parent than his wife.

Of their different parenting styles, an insider recently said:

"Brad has always been stricter. He has wanted the kids to have more structure.

"Brad will get frustrated sometimes and yell at the kids. Angelina always had a more relaxed attitude when it came to the kids. She definitely never yells."

After deciding to end her two-year marriage to Brad, Angelina - who has been in a relationship the Hollywood heartthrob for 11 years - has requested sole physical custody of their children but is seeking joint legal custody and is allowing Brad to have visitation rights.

Angelina's manager previously revealed the actress decided to file for divorce as she feels it is in "the best interests" of her children.

Her long-time associate Geyer Kosinki said: "Angelina is doing what's best in the interest of taking care of her children. She appreciates everyone's understanding of their need for privacy at this time."
