An unlikely duo? Angelina Jolie has been turning to Johnny Depp after announcing her split from Brad Pitt, a new report claims. She even hired the same divorce lawyer that he used from his own high-profile split from Amber Heard! So how did the two come together? We have all the details!
Sticking together. Angelina Jolie, 41, has been leaning on old friend Johnny Depp, 53, following her shocking divorce from Brad Pitt, 52. According to The Sun, she hired Laura Wasser, the divorce attorney who represented Johnny during his separation from Amber Heard, 30, on behalf of his recommendation. “Angelina idolized Johnny for years before she worked with him on The Tourist, and then the pair of them really hit it off on set,” sources told the publication. “The two of them have stayed in touch ever since then, and spoke regularly during the storm that surrounded Johnny’s break up with Amber.”
Wow! While we are totally surprised to hear this, it makes sense, considering how tumultuous Johnny’s own divorce from Amber was. If you remember, Johnny and Amber settled their domestic violence case in August 2016. Amber also dismissed her request for a restraining order against the actor after alleging he had physically abused her during their relationship. We are just so happy that Angie has found support during this time.
Meanwhile, Angelina has also been hiding out in a luxurious Malibu, California home to protect her six children from paparazzi. As HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY told you on Sept. 21, Angie fled to the home so Brad could have his own space to deal with during the fallout from the split. As for the Malibu compound where she’s been taking refuge? It’s a $95,000/month, 4,409 square foot beachfront property.
