He’s ready to fight! Brad Pitt has finally hired a divorce lawyer to start what promises to be a nasty legal battle against Angelina Jolie. She’s already demanding sole physical custody of their six kids, but Brad’s not about to let that happen! Keep reading for more on his new attorney.
Brad Pitt, 52, is finally ready to go to war with Angelina Jolie, 41, over custody of their six kids and their $400 million fortune. He’s taken on Hollywood heavyweight Lance Spiegel as his divorce attorney according to PEOPLE, as he prepares to respond to the petition she served him with on Sept. 19. The family law attorney is no stranger to working with big stars in high profile cases, as he’s repped the likes of Michael Jackson, Charlie Sheen, Eva Longoria and Russell Simmons.
It’s a good thing he’s getting some legal firepower on his side because Angelina has Hollywood’s top divorce attorney Laura Wasser repping her in the split. They already fired the first legal salvo’s at Brad by getting her reasons for the dissolution out there before Brad even knew what hit him! Her people told TMZ that, “Angelina became ‘fed up’ with Brad’s consumption of weed and possibly alcohol, and mixed with what she believes is ‘an anger problem’ [he] became dangerous for the children.” That was SUCH a bombshell coming so close on the heels of her shock filing. t was definitely something we never saw coming, with Angelina basically implying he was a bad dad.
Hopefully now that Brad has legal eagle to look out for him in the divorce, he can start getting his side of the story out and help set the record straight about the crazy child abuse allegations that supposedly caused Angie to file. So far, he’s yet to officially respond to reports that he may have drunkenly gotten verbally or physically abusive with one of their kids on the family’s private plane Sept. 14. Brad needs to hurry up and give his response to all of the negative stories that have come out about him this week, so hopefully now that he has legal representation in this fight, we’ll hear more from him!
