Private divorce for Brad and Angelina
BRAD Pitt and Angelina Jolie have agreed to handle their divorce privately.
The Hollywood stars – who announced their split in September – have confirmed they will keep the precise details of their divorce confidential by using a private judge, and have also insisted they will work together to reunify their family.
A statement obtained by PEOPLE magazine read: “The parties and their counsel have signed agreements to preserve the privacy rights of their children and family by keeping all court documents confidential and engaging a private judge to make any necessary legal decisions and to facilitate the expeditious resolution of any remaining issues.”
Pitt and Jolie – who are parents to Maddox, 15, Pax, 13, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Knox and Vivienne, eight – are eager to ensure that their separation does not have a damaging impact on their children.
Pitt and Jolie – who filed for divorce on the grounds of irreconcilable differences – have clashed in filings in Los Angeles Superior Court. However, both parties recently agreed to seal records concerning their children.
Meanwhile, news of their agreement comes after the 53-year-old Pitt made a surprise appearance at the Golden Globes on Sunday.
He was greeted with huge cheers when he presented an introduction package for Best Motion Picture – Drama nominee – and eventual winner – Moonlight, which was produced by his own company Plan B. – Bang Media
