Angelina Jolie’s and Brad Pitt’s divorce has long been one of the tabloid’s favorite topics. Mainly because of their custody struggle. In May of this year, everyone thought the case was finally over after a court ruled on Jolie and Pitt’s alternate parenting. However, Jolie quickly missed a counterattack.
It showed that Judge John W. Ouderkirk, who decided the case, had business ties to Pitt’s lawyers that he had not disclosed. The judge was disqualified so his ruling was suspended and Jolie is now fully custody of the children. Pitt only has the right to visit them.
The actor filed a motion to invalidate this decision, which was also met with Jolie’s retort. As reported by Page Six, Jolie accused her former partner of trying to use her fame to get special treatment in their custody battle.
“This kind of game, a desperate attempt by a celebrity seeking special treatment, is not what court resources are for. There is no problem here that meets the stringent court standards,” Jolie’s lawyers wrote.
It is worth mentioning that this is not the only dispute between experts. Pitt recently instituted legal proceedings against Jolie. He wants to stop her from selling half the shares of their $ 164 million French estate. He accused Jolie of not giving him the option to buy her part of the shares.
