No dirty laun­dry here

The Star Early Edition - - WORLD -

BRANGELINA fans must be fum­ing and curs­ing un­der their breaths at news that Hol­ly­wood pair Brad Pitt and An­gelina Jolie have de­cided to keep their splitville doc­u­ments un­der lock and key.

Di­vorce cases are usu­ally marred by mud­sling­ing, with cou­ples throw­ing ev­ery bit of in­ti­mate and em­bar­rass­ing in­for­ma­tion about their soon-to-be exes out into the open.

Think Johnny Depp and Am­ber Heard, whose di­vorce hogged head­lines last year, with Heard ob­tain­ing a re­strain­ing or­der, ac­cus­ing Depp of do­mes­tic vi­o­lence.

Then there was for­mer Bea­tle Paul McCart­ney and Heather Mills, whose di­vorce was mud­died with al­le­ga­tions of phys­i­cal and drug abuse, with McCart­ney dis­miss­ing Mills as a nut case. Their set­tle­ment was also made pub­lic.

But the Brangelina pair want none of their dirty laun­dry aired in pub­lic.

They must be com­mended for do­ing all they can to en­sure their split does not have a dam­ag­ing im­pact on their six chil­dren.
