An interminable divorce. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie separated in 2016, after eleven years of love. The couple have since started divorce proceedings … which are still not finalized. Indeed, the two actors do not manage to agree and the revelations follow one another. On April 2, it was Jon Voight, Angelina Jolie’s father, who spoke to The Sun about Brad Pitt’s alcoholism. “He had problems with alcohol and I hope he controls his sobriety,” he first said before admitting to “praying” for his ex-son-in-law. What about her daughter’s divorce? “I have no comment to make on this subject at the moment,” said Jon Voight before mentioning his grandchildren Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Vivienne and Knox. “I just wish them happiness. I hope they do the best they can,” he said. Faced with questions from journalists about his relationship with his family, the 82-year-old actor wished to indicate again that he “does not want to talk about it”, he concludes.
Hostilities continue. Angelina Jolie recently filed in court documents denouncing violence allegedly shown by Brad Pitt. But that’s not all. To support her point, she asked her children to testify. Thus, on March 18, US Weekly recounted the testimony of 19-year-old Maddox Jolie-Pitt. In it, it seems that the young man mentions an “altercation dating from 2016”, indicating that “during a trip in a private jet, my father became verbally and physically violent towards me”, reports the media. Words that devastated Brad Pitt. “Brad and his camp never attacked Angelina, but the actor’s camp believes this story was calculated to sway opinion ahead of their custody trial verdict,” a relative told Page Six before affirming: “He has the impression of being more and more isolated from his children and is devastated by them”. As Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have been fighting a merciless battle for the past few years, will they finally come to an agreement?
“Hollywood’s most expensive divorce”
Kelly Chang Rickert, a divorce lawyer, spoke to the Daily Mail on March 30. According to her, the divorce proceedings between Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie could still continue for several years and would thus become the most expensive divorce in Hollywood. “I think this could become one of the most expensive divorce proceedings in Hollywood history in terms of legal costs,” she said before adding: “Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt pay between 1,000 and $ 1,500 an hour. They also hired a private judge who charges between $ 900 and $ 1,000 an hour. It probably costs them $ 10,000 a day, “concludes the lawyer.
