Actress-filmmaker Angelina Jolie has filed new documents to furnish proof to substantiate domestic violence allegations against her ex-husband, actor Brad Pitt. The ex-couple’s divorce and custody case for their children took a new turn after Joulie made fresh claims about being in possession of evidence against Pitt.
The Maleficent actress reportedly submitted documents in the court and mentioned that she and her children are willing to offer 'proof and authority in support' of their claims of domestic violence against Brad.
Jolie agreed to provide testimony, along with the "testimony of minor children", Maddox (19), Pax (17), and Zahara (16), Shiloh (14) and twins Knox and Vivienne (12). A report in US Weekly said their children could freely speak out in court.
"If Angelina has more documentation to prove domestic violence towards her or the children, she can submit it as a supplemental offer to prove in trial," an American family law expert told the publication.
"She can say these are the documentation in addition to what she already presented. This could mean it's a more recent instance (of domestic violence), or further documentation related to what was presented before," the expert added.
The report quoted a source close to the publication and said, “Over the past four and a half years there have been a number of claims made by Angelina that have been reviewed and not substantiated."
“The children have been used by Angelina to hurt Brad before and this is more of that behaviour. This leaking of documents by her fourth or fifth set of lawyers has been done to hurt Brad,” they added.
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were legally divorced in 2019 and were separated in 2016 after more than a decade together.
