According to new reports, Hollywood actress and movie director, Angelina Jolie is “ready to offer proof of domestic violence testimony” as her divorce from Brad Pitt heads to a court trial.
The Hollywood star once reportedly accused her ex of getting physical with their teen son Maddox in a 2016 argument on a private jet, but sources close to Brad had denied it ever happening.
UK’s The Sun is reporting that Angelina, 45, filed court papers on March 12 to “offer proof and support” of “testimony regarding domestic violence.”
Angelina and Brad are parents of Maddox, 19, Zahara, 16, Pax, 17, Shiloh, 14, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 12 and the report says she also offered “proof” in support of their minor children testifying at trial.
Angelina’s filings also include “intent to offer video recording of the deposition,” which is the testimony, of Brad, 57.
The Tomb Raider actress filed for divorce from Brad in September 2016, citing irreconcilable differences, after two years of marriage and 12 years together.
The couple has been divorced since 2019 but the impending trial is to determine possession of their children and to divide their estate.
A source previously told The Sun that Brad wants peace and is cautious of the custody battle going tiresome.
The insider said: “He’s still desperate for all the ugliness to end, even though it’s like pulling teeth seeing eye to eye with Angelina about virtually anything these days.
“Brad’s big concern in all this is making some sort of peace, for the kids’ sake as well as his and Angelina’s.
“This ugliness has gone on way too long and it’s his greatest wish for them to resolve as much as possible outside of the courtroom.”
The insider continued: “Whatever gets decided by the judge, they’ll be co-raising the kids for the rest of their lives.
“He’s willing to be the bigger person, and it’s a positive sign that he’s spending time with Angie again, for sure.”
