Settlement Talks between Jolie and Pitt
Two years ago, Jolie and Pitt decided to work together for the betterment of their children. The two started talking after months of not being on speaking terms.
A source said,
They are in a place where they can put anger or hurt aside to focus on their children and how they plan to co parent.
I was really on my back and chained to a system when Child Services was called.
After a year, they got separated Brad opened up how they came up with the decision of working together for the betterment of their kids.
Angelina Jolie was worried that something unpredictable was happening because the jurist didn’t revealed his working relationship with Brad’s lawyer. Brad’s legal team wanted Angelina’s request to be denied calling it a trick to stretch their case.
Jolie’s lawyer said,
All my client is asking for is a fair trial based on facts, with no special favors extended to either side.
Angelina and Brad will head back to court for the child custody trial in October.
