Jolie and Pitt carrying out divorce proceedings in private

Estranged couple Angelina Jolie Pitt and Brad Pitt issued a statement on Monday, January 9 expressing their plans to work together for the privacy of their children amid their controversial divorce.

In their joint statement, Pitt and Jolie said, “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.” This is the first joint statement that Pitt and Jolie released since Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt back in September 2016 “for the health of the family.”

Authorities conducted an investigation into claims that Pitt was abusive towards his 15-year-old son Maddox Chivan during a private flight from France to the United States in September. The FBI cleared Pitt of any wrongdoing. Pitt and Jolie were married for two years after being a couple for a decade.
