The divorce that both Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie stated would have the best interest of their six children in mind has reportedly turned a bit ugly, and the latest claims being made are that Jolie is compiling a “dirt file” about her estranged husband to be sure she is granted full custody of their brood: Maddox, 15, Pax, 13, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and 8-year-old twins, Knox and Vivienne.
Radar Online reports that Brad has become fearful, according to a source who is close to the 52-year-old actor.
“Brad is desperate to keep his secrets hidden. He doesn’t want Angelina airing his dirty laundry in public.”
Papers were filed on December 2 that gave details of the temporary deal granting 41-year-old Jolie physical custody of their six children. Brad can only see his kids when a therapist is present and must participate in individual group therapy sessions at least once a week. Pitt also agreed to random drug and alcohol testing.
An FBI investigation was launched after the “jet incident,” during which Brad allegedly lunged at son Maddox, which prompted the inquiry. However, Pitt was cleared of any wrong-doing and tested negative for drugs and alcohol during the abuse investigation.
Although he has been displaying appropriate behavior, Pitt urged the judge overseeing the case to seal divorce and custody documents. A blow was delivered to the Allied star when the judge denied the request.

A source spoke of Brad’s current struggles and worries, due to his former wife’s “vindictive” ways.
“Brad’s having tough times at the box office, and he knows how vindictive Angie can be,” said the source. “People know that she accused him of abuse, but they might not know he was cleared. The last thing he needs is for his image to be trashed further!”
The publication titles the report with details about a “dirt file” that Jolie has compiled regarding an alleged terrible temper, alcoholism, and drug use. In his plea to seal the records of the case, the notable actor voiced concern for the welfare of his children as opposed to seeming worried about his tarnished reputation.

The Inquisitr recently shared a passage written within the request by Pitt.
“I am extremely concerned that if court records regarding custody are not sealed, information contained therein will cause irreparable damage to our children’s privacy rights. In order to protect our children from irreparable damage. I am respectfully requesting that all custody-related pleadings be sealed.”
Whether the reason for the request also had to do with fears Brad has about his reputation being trashed, this remains to be verified. However, it seems that Jolie is not making it easy on Pitt, seeing as she and her team also opposed sealing of the documents.
As the Daily Mail relays, Pitt’s team has now accused Jolie of compromising the privacy of their children. Additionally, it became known, due to documents remaining unsealed, that Pitt’s drug testing must now take place four times per month after the actor requested more time with his children.
Brad’s lawyer responded to the opposition by Angelina’s team in regards to sealing the documents.
“The minor children should be protected from embarrassment and stigma resulting from public access to information concerning their emotional status and their relationships with their parents.”
Brad Pitt also wrote that he and Angelina have been unable to agree upon a custody schedule and that he intends to request orders to establish a schedule if one cannot be reached between the former couple.
