Angelina Jolie, who parted ways with Brad Pitt in 2016, has filed new documents in court alleging domestic abuse during their ongoing divorce proceedings. The filing says that their children could freely speak out in court in their divorce hearings.
ANGELINA JOLIE ACCUSES BRAD PITT OF DOMESTIC ABUSE
On March 12, Angelina Jolie detailed the allegations in court. According to reports, she is willing to provide “proof and authority in support” of the claims. The court documents indicate that the actress will provide testimony herself, along with that of her minor children.
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt share six children – Maddox, 19, Pax, 17, and Zahara, 16, Shiloh, 14, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 12.
“Over the past four and a half years there have been a number of claims made by Angelina that have been reviewed and not substantiated. The children have been used by Angelina to hurt Brad before and this is more of that behavior. This leaking of documents by her fourth or fifth set of lawyers has been done to hurt Brad,” Us Weekly quoted a source as saying.
ABOUT ANGELINA JOLIE AND BRAD PITT
Brad Pitt started dating Angelina Jolie after meeting her on the sets of Mr. and Mrs. Smith in 2004. They separated in September 2016 after two years of marriage and were declared legally single in April 2019, after their lawyers asked for a bifurcated judgment, meaning that two married people can be declared single while other issues, including finances and child custody, remain. Their divorce has not been finalised yet. The actress had cited irreconcilable differences as the cause for their split.
