IT'S WAR? Angelina Jolie's lawyer set to quit after her "venomous" demands in divorce with Brad Pitt, say reports
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's divorce is one of those nasty situations that fans and followers of the couple - who had been left pretty much heartbroken after the news had come out - will be wishing that it gets over already. The situation has turned into such a mess that Jolie's lawyer has almost quit the case since the actress is being ‘ridiculously unreasonable.’
Taking a turn for the worse, Jolie and Pitt's divorce and child custody battle has been going on for quite a while now. And as sources have revealed to TMZ, Jolie's lawyer - Laura Wasser - is reportedly getting ready to quit the case because it has turned “too venomous” - something she has already made known to the actress.
However Angelina’s spokesperson, Mindy Nyby, claims that Wasser is still very much leading the divorce proceedings.
In a statement released to Entertainment Tonight, Nyby said: "I just spoke with Laura. The TMZ story is not true and she is not quitting now or in the future."
Inside sources also revealed that Jolie herself is leaving no stone unturned to snap all ties that her six children - whom she shares with Pitt - have with their father. The six children are Maddox, 16, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, Knox, 10, and Vivienne, 10. TMZ was also told that there has been a lot of screaming on Jolie's end, and that “she’s fueled with anger and has gotten ridiculously unreasonable.”
The news of Wesser quitting the case has been a pretty big deal too, considering she's pretty well known in her profession as a divorce attorney. But at the same time, her forte lies in promoting settlements and co-parenting - and by the looks of Jolie's alleged demands, this wasn't exactly a match made in heaven.
As per TMZ's reports, the actress has already hired another law firm to take over the case for whenever Wesser officially resigns from the case, even though the divorce is nowhere even close to see a settlement, and the current situation is more like an “all-out war.” But no matter how desperately Jolie doesn't want her kids' father to be a part of their lives, Pitt has been reportedly all about his kids in the custody battle and divorce. The kids have been his main priority.
Back in June, sources told Entertainment Tonight that Pitt “is focused on two of the most important things he should be focused on, and those are his children and his work. Being a father is his number one job, and he knows that. He will always be there for those children.” Insiders also shared that his commitment towards his kids is so intense that he doesn't intend to fall in love again.
