The divorce battle continues between Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt and both have also brought new accusations against each other.
Much of their dispute is focused on the contention on what type of custody would the court decided for their six kids – Maddox, 15, Pax, 13, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and the twins Vivienne and Knox, 8.
The 41-year-old “Salt” actress accuses her estranged husband, Brad Pitt, that her image is being maligned by the “Ocean Eleven” actor by branding her selfish when she disclosed custody-related documents to the media that specifically exposed the names of the kids’ therapists and other mental health professionals to the public.
In Pitt’s latest court filing, he alleged that the documents presented by his former wife in public is proof that she is neglecting their children’s safety and privacy to the public for her own benefit.
The 52-year-old “Troy” actor even mentioned that Angelina Jolie is apparently having no self-mechanism to protect such sensitive information that would probably drag the kids’ privacy to public humiliation.
Brad Pitt’s documents also stated that Jolie had other motives because she seems to be willing to expose court-related documents which would be detrimental to their children. It was even worse when those documents inevitably made it to the public.
Jolie felt bad about the accusations of Brad Pitt as it puts her in a bad light not only in the eyes of the public but most especially her kids.
Pitt’s real motives according to Jolie’s lawyer
Sources close to Angelina Jolie are also claiming that the accusations of Brad Pitt are merely meant to turn the tables on the “Original Sin” actress.
In response to Brad Pitt’s filing, Angelina Jolie also responded on January 4 where she pointed out that her ex-husband’s reason for his request to conceal such court documents is really to deflect the issue away from him and turn it against her.
According to the lawyer of the “Maleficent” actress, Laura Wasser, she already has an idea as to Brad Pitt’s real motive to request for keeping the court documents in private.
She said that given the detailed investigations by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) into the allegations of his abuse, he wanted to divert the issue on Angie instead.
It can be recalled that the divorce between the couple happened due to Brad Pitt’s allegedly abusive behavior against their eldest son, Maddox during their family trip to Europe last September.
The incident prompted Angelina to immediately file for divorce against Brad Pitt, which turned a bit ugly when they started disputing the legal custody of their children – Jolie wants sole physical custody while Pitt wants joint custody agreement.
Whether Brad Pitt’s supposed motives are true or not, only he can know for sure since it seems that the Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services has absolved him from allegations of abuse against Maddox.
But according to alleged reports, Brad Pitt’s clearance from such incident does not guarantee that he did not do anything wrong.
Sources say that the Maddox is clearly traumatized for what has happened during their trip. But Angelina Jolie is strangely keeping mum on the issue and refuse to reveal what really happened during their flight back home from Europe.
Pitt’s 5-hour visit with the kids
Meanwhile, Angelina Jolie has come to realize the importance of confidentiality and now knows that it is the best way to keep the well-being of her kids.
Last December 2, 2016, Jolie has been granted temporary custody of all their kids while Brad Pitt has been granted weekly therapeutic visits. The therapists believe that it is best to consider the interest of their children on the issue as well.
According to reports, Brad Pitt has had weekly visits with the kids since October 8 last year.
Due to his request, Jolie finally allowed and made a custody agreement in which Brad Pitt has been granted a 5-hour weekly therapeutic visit with their children.
