The 'Maleficent' star submitted new court documents for alleged incidents of domestic violence involving Pitt


Entertainment Desk March 18, 2021

Angelina Jolie has submitted new court documents in relation to alleged incidents of domestic violence involving her ex-husband, Brad Pitt, reported US Weekly. The complaint submitted on Friday indicated that both, the Maleficent actor and her children are willing to offer “proof and authority in support” of their claim against Pitt. As per the documents, Jolie, 45, has decided to testify against the War Machine actor, with the former couple’s children – Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Konx and Vivienne – having agreed to freely speak in the divorce hearing.

Family law expert Evie P Jeang told the publication, “If Angelina has the documents to prove her claims of domestic violence towards her and their children, they can be submitted as supplement to prove in trail.” She added “These documents can be used additional to what Jolie has already submitted to strengthen her case.”

A source close to Pitt revealed that the filing from Jolie is nothing more than a way to hurt the actor. “Over the past four and a half years, there have been multiple claims made by Jolie that have undergone the reviewing process,” said the source. “Their children are only being used by Jolie to nonetheless hurt Pitt, but even more by teaming up with the kids. The leaking of documents is the fourth or fifth set by her lawyers that is only going to hurt him more.”

The former Hollywood sweethearts started dating after meeting on the sets of Mr and Mrs Smith back in 2004. They parted ways in 2016 after two years of marriage and were officially declared single in mid-2019. Although their divorce has still not been finalised, Jolie cited irreconcilable difference to be the real reason behind their separation.
