Every move of the estranged couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have been scrutinized by the media ever since the high-profile divorce. Their children have also received the harsh end of it, like rumors surfacing of the adopted kids to be taken away.
Up to what lengths will Angelina and Brad take their custody battle?
Angelina Jolie Hiding From Brad Pitt?
Recently, the Maleficent actress was allegedly hiding out in a secluded hotel in Los Angeles with the couple’s brood, 15-year-old Maddox, 13-year-old Pax, 11-year-old Zahara, 10-year-old Shiloh and 8-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne. The report by Hollywood Life says the 41-year-old actress comes in and out of Hotel Bel-Air through the back entrance.
Angelina, in an effort to avoid the spotlight, reportedly enjoys keeping a low profile with her family in the secluded hotel. While the report did not state the reason behind the purported “hiding” of Angelina from Brad, it was mentioned that Angelina was seen coming out from the hotel 24 hours after Brad was making provisions with the court where he was denied by the judge to seal court documents.
It was reported that Brad made an appeal to the court to seal information surrounding the couple’s custody dispute. In the 52-year-old actor’s sworn declaration, he stated that he fears the minors will suffer “irreparable damage” if the court documents will not be sealed. However, Brad’s petition was denied by Los Angeles Superior Court Richard J. Burge.
Angelina’s attorneys viewed Brad’s request as a “thinly veiled attempt” to protect himself from embarrassing information that might be exposed.
Meanwhile, another report questioned the credibility of the webloid’s article and claimed that Angelina is definitely not hiding from Brad and that they were only in the hotel for some R&R. In fact, Angelina and the kids have a rental home where they are residing in since the divorce.
Children Sandwiched in Custody Battle
The kids have been the epicenter of the former A-list Hollywood couple’s divorce’s wrath. There were even previous reports that Angelina and Brad’s adopted sons Maddox and Pax will be taken away from them as their biological parents wanted to have their sons back. The two were adopted when they were still a child. However, the reports were nothing but a product of Hollywood’s rumor mill.
While the custody battle goes on, Angelina is discovered to be house-hunting in LA to let the youngsters “remain close” with their father.
At the end of the day, it seems the last say on who the children will choose to be with is left by Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt to their kids as the two is known to always putting the children’s best interest above everything.
