The insider revealed the "Once Upon A Time In Hollywood" actor's feelings in all of this. "Brad has just started to feel like his life was back on track after three years of hell and he was hoping the divorce would be finalised by May. So this latest curveball has got him questioning what else he could possibly do to prove the kids are his number one priority," the source said.
