Pri­vate di­vorce for Brad and An­gelina

The Star Early Edition - - NEWS -

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
