Hollywood’s ugliest divorce battle has come to an end, with Brad Pitt claiming victory over wife Angelina Jolie’s campaign of ‘lies and deception’.
Newly released divorce papers reveal how the actress was forced to back down from
a series of outrageous claims against her estranged husband, agreeing to make their settlement private despite initial plans to ‘drag Brad’s name through the mud’ and ‘humiliate him as much as possible’.
Sources close to Ange says her shock turnaround decision came after she witnessed the overwhelming support Brad received during his surprise appearance at this year’s Golden Globes.
The huge uproar of applause for the 53-year-old from Hollywood’s A-list led Ange to call off her vicious divorce campaign, scared that her career would be irrevocably damaged if she continued with the legal battle.
‘Brad has come out on top and couldn’t be happier,’ an insider tells New Idea.
