Going forward, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie will handle their divorce in a private forum.
The joined statement comes after Angelina agreed last week to keep the case sealed upon Brad’s request. He claims he wants it sealed in order to protect the children, but there were rumors that Angelina just thought Brad was “terrified that the public will learn the truth.”
The statement was obtained by CNN and it says: : “The parties and their counsel have signed agreements to preserve the privacy rights of their children and family by keeping all court documents confidential and engaging a private judge to make any necessary legal decisions and to facilitate the expeditious resolution of any remaining issues. The parents are committed to act as a united front to effectuate recovery and reunification.”
Angelina filed for a divorce from Brad in September 2016, citing irreconcilable differences, after an on-flight incident involving the actor and their son Maddox. She has been given sole custody of their six children, while he has been given “therapeutic visits”.
Brad was investigated by the FBI and Department of Children and Family Services, but concluded no further action was needed and he was not charged.
