Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie?s divorce seems to be getting nastier. As per a new update, the Maleficent star is seemingly using their kids? therapist in their custody battle.
The world was shocked when news of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie?s divorce broke last September. They began dating in 2004 and got married in 2014.
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie custody war continues
What stunned fans about their split were the actress? child abuse allegations. As per the mother-of-six, her husband physically and verbally abused their eldest son Maddox at a family trip.
Since then, the two have been embroiled in a high-profile battle on who will get their six children.
Child therapist siding with Angelina Jolie?
Insiders have claimed that Brad Pitt has been cooperating with rules imposed by his estranged wife. Now, the Fight Club star?s lawyers are accusing Angelina Jolie of not following the said visitation agreements.
The new complaint is based on a temporary custody deal that the father-of-six signed months ago. As per the deal, the therapist of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie?s kids will ?call the shots.?
However, the therapist has seemingly been partial towards the actress. TMZ detailed an email sent last Wednesday morning by attorney Lance Spiegel. He said that his client has been ?complying with every aspect of the child therapy process.? However, they noticed that “the therapy team has ignored or disregarded issues that [Brad] has raised.” This included the actor?s request to spend more time with them this holiday season.
Mother-of-six stands firm
The plea was reportedly turned down by the 41-year-old actress. Her legal rep, Laura Wasser, firmly explained that her client is just following the orders of the child therapist.
The lawyer said that Brad Pitt is ?ignoring what therapists feel is best for the kids.? She also added that the rules are actually based on ?how the kids are feeling.”
In relation to this, there have long been rumors that the actor?s previous visits did not go too well. According to insiders, the children usually get very emotional when he is around. This is a likely reason why Angelina Jolie?s camp is standing by their strict visitation schedule.
