With celebrity divorce lawyer Laura Wasser, who has dealt with the divorces of Johnny Depp, Ashton Kutcher, Christina Aguilera and Heidi Klum, already at her beck and call, Angelina has reportedly taken her divorce proceedings to the next level, hiring two more expert lawyers in her battle against Brad Pitt.
According TMZ, the 41-year-old actress has hired Bert Fields and Pierce O’Donnell, who were both recently named on the 100 Most Influential Lawyers in America by the National Law Journal.
This news comes after a frenzied few weeks ever since news broke about the Hollywood glamour couples’ split. With allegations aplenty, Brad, 52, has been at the centre. Amongst the claims, it is believed Angelina told the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family services that Brad had become violent with adopted son, Maddox, 15, whilst drunk on a private jet.
Angelina has been granted full custody of Maddox, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Knox and Vivienne, eight, in a 3 week temporary custody deal. In the meantime, Brad will be permitted visitation rights when accompanied by a therapist.
The actors married in 2014, after starting their relationship in 2006 when they met on the set of action thriller Mr and Mrs Smith whilst Brad was married to first wife, Jennifer Aniston.
