Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt shocked everyone last year when they announced their decision to end their marriage. The marriage did not end in good terms and actually ever since the divorce filing Angelina and Brad have been involved in quite an ugly divorce battle. The battle continues now with a new court filing from Angelina’s camp.
So, a lawyer for the famous actress filed some new court documents in response to Brad Pitt’s intentions to keep the privacy of the divorce proceedings. After agreeing with Brad’s request, the actress decided to slam her estranged husband in her new court filing. Angelina denied Brad’s accusations that she revealed some sensitive information regarding the couple’s six children.
Angelina claimed that the reason why Brad wants to seal the divorce proceedings is actually linked to the fact that he is “terrified that the public will learn the truth.” “There is little doubt that [Brad] would prefer to keep the entire case private, particularly given the detailed investigations by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Dept. of Children and Family Services into allegation of abuse,” the court documents said.
From this statement it is unclear if there are still some ongoing investigations from the two departments against Brad or if they have been concluded. However, a source claimed that the actor has really been cleared of the claims and there are no new allegations against him.
“It’s nice to see that she has finally come around to supporting the sealing of documents weeks after he requested this action,” an insider said according to People. “Considering that both the FBI and child services thoroughly investigated this matter and cleared the father, this line of attack doesn’t make much sense.”
Another source claimed that although Brad may have been cleared of the allegations, the children were deeply affected by his conduct. “The kids are traumatized,” the insider said, adding that Angelina has been trying to protect her children with her decision of not revealing what happened during the highly famous plane incident. The source said that Angelina’s only interest is to protect her children.
