She hadn’t been seen in public since news emerged of her shock split from Brad Pitt, but Angelina Jolie has finally resurfaced.
TMZ published a picture of the mum-of-six arriving at a hotel in Los Angeles with her children on Thursday.
Attempting to keep a low profile, the 41-year-old wore dark, oversized sunglasses and tellingly, was minus the sparkling engagement ring ex-husband Brad had given to her.
According to the gossip site, Angelina had checked into the hotel a day earlier, before Brad was denied an emergency hearing to request that their custody battle be made private.
The former couple - who announced their shocking split in September - share twins Vivienne and Knox, eight, as well as Shiloh, 10, Zahara, 11, Pax, 13, and Maddox, 15.
Brad told the court he was worried for his children.
'I am extremely concerned that if court records regarding custody are not sealed, information contained therein will cause irreparable damage to our children's privacy rights,' he said in a sworn written declaration filed Wednesday.
However Angelina's attorneys responded: 'His ... request is a thinly veiled attempt to shield himself, rather than the minor children, from public view.'
