Angelina Jolie is reportedly having a hard time managing her duties after her split with Brad Pitt. The 41-year-old actress filed for divorce from him on 19 September 2016 citing irreconcilable differences.

A source told Radar Online: "What's happening here is that Angie is not in a good place right now, and she's starting to crack."

"Six demanding kids, a move, tons of projects in the works and so much more — all on her own. She wants more help from Brad, but he's convinced her only motivation is money and has had enough of groveling for scraps when it comes to supervised visitation," the insider added.

"Truth is though, he's the only person who could lift her out of these stressful patches, so it's no surprise she's missing his support and offering this olive branch," the source shared.

Recently, during an interview with Vanity Fair, the Maleficent actress talked about the couple's separation. She said: "It's just been the hardest time, and we're just kind of coming up for air. [This house] is a big jump forward for us, and we're all trying to do our best to heal as our family....things got bad...I don't want to use that word...Things became 'difficult.'"

Jolie also detailed how their children, Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, and twins Vivienne and Knox are dealing with the changes. She said: "[Our lifestyle] was not in any way a negative. That was not the problem. That is and will remain one of the wonderful opportunities we are able to give our children...They're six very strong-minded, thoughtful, worldly individuals. I'm very proud of them. [They're] very times they needed to be. We're all just healing from the events that led to the filing...They're not healing from the divorce. They're healing from some...from life, from things in life."
