Even if the FBI already ended its probe, Angelina Jolie reportedly believes that her children with Brad Pitt are still traumatized from the private jet incident that took place three months ago. TMZ reports that the 41-year-old actress’s lawyer contacted the 52-year-old actor’s legal representation, urging Brad to look for a new trauma specialist who can assist the children.
An altercation between Brad and 15-year-old son Maddox allegedly ensued on the plane. This reportedly happened a few days before Angelina filed for divorce. After several weeks of investigation, the FBI already ended its probe. However, the latest reports suggest that Angelina feels that their children are still struggling to forget what happened.
Angelina currently has the custody of the children. Supporters of the couple hope that the custody battle won’t go awry although it is highly unlikely since the Salt actress is aiming for sole custody. Recently, Brad asked for an emergency hearing to request that documents pertaining to their court case should be sealed and made private. His request has been denied.
In a declaration, Brad wrote that his concern is the children.
“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,” the statement read.
The legal team of Angelina was quick to respond that the World War Z actor’s request is “a thinly veiled attempt to shield himself, rather than the minor children, from public view.” Brad will have to wait until January 17 for the next hearing, where he will try again to have the documents sealed.
The same publication also reports that Brad’s request to spend more time with the children was similarly dismissed by Angelina’s camp. Last month, Brad agreed to a temporary custody deal which cited that the therapy team is the one that would decide on the frequency of his visits. They will base the decision on what’s ultimately good for the children.
As per one of the actor’s attorneys, Brad is reportedly frustrated by his limited access to the kids. The team asked Angelina if he could have a total of four sessions in December with the kids: one with twins Vivienne and Knox, one with middle children Shiloh and Zahara, one with the twins and the middle children, and finally, one with Maddox and Pax. If the older kids do not want to see their father, Brad would request to spend the session with his four younger children.
His request was turned down. Angelina’s lawyer, Laura Wasser, maintained that it should be the therapists who would determine the sessions based on “how the kids are feeling.” Nonetheless, it was reported that Angelina has been house hunting in Los Angeles in a bid to let her children stay close with the Allied actor once they have reached an agreement.
Meanwhile, rumors that Angelina is going broke because of her ongoing court battle with Brad have been debunked by Gossip Cop. According to a report by OK!, Angelina is running out of means to pay for the accumulating legal bills.
“Angie’s always been a big spender, but until now she’s had Brad’s money to blow. She’s going through her own money like water,” the so-called insider claimed.
The source even went on to say that the actress has private investigators whose job is to “dig up dirt on her estranged husband.” The report turned out to be inaccurate.
For the first time after she filed the divorce, Angelina was photographed in public. She arrived at the Hotel Bel-Air in Los Angeles clad in black and without her wedding ring.
