Brad Pitt is reportedly "in bad shape" two weeks into his divorce from Angelina Jolie.

The Oscar-winning actress (42) filed for divorce from the superstar actor (52) two weeks ago and what has followed has been a mess of allegations from alcohol abuse to an alleged "confrontation" with their eldest son Maddox (15) on their private plane.

The FBI were considering investigating the incident, while the LAPD and a team of top lawyers and spin doctors have all been working behind the scenes as his estranged wife reportedly launched a "smear campaign" against him.

"He’s been leaning heavily on his family and speaks to his parents and close friends and his manager constantly. His mom has been talking to him constantly," a source told Us Weekly.

The Maleficent star filed for sole physical custody of their six children - Maddox, Pax (12), Zahara (11), Shiloh (10) and twins Knox and Vivienne (eight) - and while both parents have temporary joint custody, the kids are currently living full-time with their mother.

His first visit will reportedly be supervised by a therapist, while both have agreed to undergo counseling both personally and as a family.

"He will cooperate in whatever way he can. He loves those kids more than anything," the insider added.

Pitt will allegedly be investigated by Children's and Family Services for the mid-air incident.

Those in the A-list couple's inner circle are saying the split didn't come as a surprise as they were spending more and more time apart.

"They agreed to meet on their anniversary in LA, they both had to be there for work commitments anyway," a source told heat.

"They chose the Beverly Hills Hotel because it's just around the corner from their house, not because it's especially romantic."

She is said to have filed the papers immediately after the meet-up as they couldn't work out their differences.
