The 45-year-old Maleficent actress has filed documents making it clear she is prepared to offer “proof and authority in support” of domestic violence allegations against the 57-year-old Once Upon a Time in Hollywood actor, The Blast reported.
“Along with Angelina‘s testimony, there is a separate document filing concerning the testimony from the former couple’s minor children. Both Brad and Angelina must grant permission from the court to involve, Shiloh, Knox, and Vivienne, in their divorce proceedings,” the outlet reported, noting that their other children – Maddox, Zahara and Pax – could potentially testify as well, although they are adults and do not need parental consent.
Angelina and Brad filed for divorce back in September of 2016, and have been in a five-year-plus long battle over the custody of their children and division their estate. They have yet to agree to a formal custody agreement and final judgement.
After Angelina filed for divorce, it was reported that Brad was under investigation for alleged child abuse regarding an incident involving Brad and their son Maddox while on a private jet. A formal investigation was launched, ending with him being cleared of any criminal wrongdoing.
“Although there was never any official action taken against Pitt over the allegations, they could still be rehashed in court as Angelina Jolie continues to negotiate the terms of their divorce,” The Blast notes.
Brad is fighting for split custody, while Angelina is fighting for physical custody.
