Reports say that Angelina Jolie has hired two expert lawyers to work for her on her divorce from Brad Pitt case.
The 41-year-old actress has reportedly sought the help of legal professionals Bert Fields and Pierce O’Donnell – who has been named one of the 100 Most Influential Lawyers in America by the National Law Journal – to assist her in her legal battle against the Fury actor, according to TMZ.
Angelina’s additional entertainment lawyers, who will be led by Laura Wasser, have been recruited to ensure she reaches a settlement she wants.
The Maleficent actress – who married the Hollywood hunk in 2014 but filed for a divorce last month – has allegedly stated she doesn’t want her partner to be prosecuted for child abuse allegations, and has threatened to go “radio silent” and not cooperate with law enforcement if a case against Brad is made.
This news comes after the 52-year-old actor was claimed to have allegedly mistreated his 15-year-old son Maddox after a confrontation whilst drunk on a private jet.
However, it is believed the brunette beauty – who has Maddox, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Knox and Vivienne, eight, with Brad – previously told the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family services Brad struck Maddox in the face, although it Angelina allegedly doesn’t want to punish the father of her children but is focused on protecting her brood.
Other sources have come forward to claim Brad had instead supposedly lunged at Maddox, but Angelina interrupted.
Meanwhile, Angelina has been granted full custody of her children in a temporary custody deal with Brad, which will see Angelina have full physical custody of her children for three weeks until new recommendations can be settled, whilst Brad will be permitted visitation rights during the temporary period when accompanied by a therapist.
The news comes just days after it was reported that Brad was waiting to file his response to Angelina’s divorce petition until the couple had come to an agreement about the custody of their children.
