In the latest turn of events, Brad Pitt accused his soon-to-be ex-wife of violating their children’s privacy. Apparently, Jolie filed a stipulation in court back in October, but doing so caused the details of the kids’ health records and names of their therapists to become public.
Pitt’s court documents state that Jolie has “compromised the children’s privacy by disregarding a confidentiality agreement that was expressly designed to protect the minor children.” A psychologist who provided a witness statement said that he agreed that the documents should be kept sealed for the safety of the children.
The two are still attempting to reach a custody agreement.
Within the past week, a statement from Angelina Jolie‘s representative caused a ton of confusion about what would happen to her and Brad Pitt‘s children in the wake of their split. The newly broken-up Hollywood “it” couple are still trying to figure out the logistics of the custody of their six children.
The statement from Angelina Jolie’s representative made it seem like she would be retaining sole custody of the kids, which was a startling revelation considering Brad Pitt was being investigated for anger issues.
“In accordance with this agreement, the six children will stay in their mother’s custody, and the children will continue therapeutic visits with their father,” the statement reads. “This has been determined by childcare professionals to be in the children’s best interest.”
It continues to spell out that they are looking out for the welfare of the family. “We are not in a position to discuss the details. We hope now that it is clear that the events which led to the dissolution filing involved minor children and their wellbeing, there will be understanding of the sensitivity of the family situation,” it said.
Now, however, it’s come out that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have not agreed to give Angelina sole custody. Rather, this was just a short-term solution.
“There was no new agreement signed…it was simply an extension of the pre-existing, completely voluntary temporary arrangement they had previously agreed to,” a source stated. “It makes no sense because Pitt filed for joint custody on Friday…days after this supposed new agreement. There were absolutely not any child-care advisors of any kind imposing or in any way involved with this decision.”
Based on all the evidence, it sounds like things are still very much in flux for the divorcing couple. Hopefully they can work something out quickly and avoid dragging the argument on and on.
