The 53-year-old actor’s lawyers filed a motion this week asking a judge to seal records regarding Pitt’s children with Jolie, claiming the 41-year-old actress has “exposed” their six kids in their ongoing divorce.
“[Angelina] exposed the children by making public the names of their therapists and other mental health professionals,” Pitt’s attorneys claim in new court documents obtained by E! News.
“[Angelina] appears to be determined to ignore even agreed upon standards relating to the children’s best interest and she is attempting to clear the way to put in the public eye any allegations she can, without regard to the impact on the minor children.”
“[Angelina] apparently has no self-regulating mechanism to preclude sensitive information from being placed in the public record, or she has other motives,” the lawyers suggested.
Jolie has filed unsealed documents, including her temporary custody arrangement with Pitt, since their split, according to TMZ. Pitt’s request for an emergency order to seal documents pertaining to the divorce was denied earlier this month.
“Angelina has consistently made public statements and public filings throughout this process. [Brad] has not,” a source told People at the time.
“He wants to do what is in the best interests of his children, and his entire family, including her, frankly. And that is to keep this private,” the insider added.
Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt in September after two years of marriage and a decade together. The pair share 15-year-old Maddox, 13-year-old Pax, 11-year-old Zahara, 10-year-old Shiloh and 8-year-old Vivienne and Knox.
