Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie release first joint statement since filing for divorce
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have released a statement confirming their divorce and custody agreement will be sealed to protect the privacy of their children.
The high profile couple, who were together for 11 years, have been actively pleading their cases in the court of public opinion in recent months, in particular when it comes to their proposed custody arrangemens.
Pitt was the subject of an FBI investigation regarding abuse allegations about an on-air incident with their oldest son Maddox (15), but charges were not pursued. And just last week, Jolie's lawyer Laura Wasser said that her ex was "terrified that the public will learn the truth".
But the couple have said they're not putting on a united front in their first joint statement since divorce proceedings began.
"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," they told Us Weekly.
"The parents are committed to act as a united front to effectuate recovery and reunification."
