Did children want to testify against Brad Pitt?
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were once Hollywood’s dream couple, now their separation is turning into a mud fight. And their children also seem to be involved. This is to prove a newly emerged document. Accordingly, three of them actually wanted to burden their father.
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are apparently still in a custody battle. Now, according to “Us Weekly”, an allegedly newly surfaced document is said to show that it could have been worse for Pitt. According to the report, his ex-wife’s attorneys reportedly filed a paper in December 2020 claiming three of the ex-couple’s six children wanted to testify against him.
Pitt and Jolie, who separated in 2016, are parents of Maddox (19), Pax (17), Zahara (16), Shiloh (15) and twins Knox and Vivienne (12). The children who are involved in the custody battle are old enough to understand what is going on, “Us Weekly” quotes from the document. “The process will inevitably affect them emotionally. Three of the children have asked to testify,” it should say, among other things.
What is the role of the judge?
The document is believed to be part of Jolie’s attempt to exempt Judge John Ouderkirk from the case over his alleged links to Pitt’s legal team. In May, according to court documents available to the British Guardian, she announced that the judge had, to her detriment, refused to give evidence to her eligible children. A statement by the children Pax, Zahara and Shiloh was possible because a court code made this possible for children over the age of 14, according to the document.
The filing, which was filed in a California appeals court, said: “Judge Ouderkirk has denied a fair trial to Ms. Jolie and provided evidence relevant to the health, safety and welfare of the children, which is critical to her case are wrongly excluded. “
Pitt’s attorneys have already responded, stating that Ouderkirk has “conducted a comprehensive trial in a thorough, fair manner” over the past six months and, after hearing experts and witnesses, “made a preliminary decision and order”. In the future, the couple will apparently share half of the custody of their children. The court is said to have determined this in a preliminary ruling, as several US media reported unanimously. Jolie has reportedly already announced plans to appeal.
