Actress Angelina Jolie and actor Brad Pitt, one of Hollywood’s most glamorous and powerful couples, will use a private judge to keep their divorce out of the view of the public, the couple said in a statement to CNN on Monday.
Jolie and Pitt reached an agreement to keep all divorce documents and proceedings under seal in order to “preserve the privacy rights of their children and family,” the couple said in a joint statement.
“The animosity between this high-profile couple seems to have subsided a bit. I like the approach of sealing the file and having a judge arbitrate the divorce in privacy. This will go a long way in protecting the privacy interests of their children, and assuming Brad and Angelina participate in the process in good faith, it should go a long way in ensuring a dignified and graceful divorce. “
