Angelina Jolie doesn't want Brad Pitt to be prosecuted for child abuse allegations
Angelina Jolie reportedly doesn't want Brad Pitt to be prosecuted for child abuse allegations.
The 41-year-old actress has reportedly threatened to go "radio silent" if the 'Fury' actor - who was claimed to have mistreated his 15-year-old son Maddox after a confrontation whilst drunk on a private jet - is charged, according to TMZ.
And it has been reported the 'Maleficent' actress - who married Brad in 2014 but has recently filed for a divorce against the Hollywood hunk - has allegedly told law enforcements she will not cooperate if a case against Brad is made.
However, it is believed the brunette beauty - who has Maddox, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Knox and Vivienne, eight, with Brad - previously told the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family services Brad struck Maddox in the face, although it Angelina allegedly doesn't want to punish the father of her children but is focused on protecting her brood.
Other sources have come forward to claim Brad had instead supposedly lunged at Maddox, but Angelina interrupted.
Meanwhile, Angelina has been granted full custody of her children in a temporary custody deal with Brad, which will see Angelina have full physical custody of her children for three weeks until new recommendations can be settled.
According to TMZ the 52 year old will have visitation rights during the temporary period, but his initial visit must be with a therapist present. The therapist will then be able to decide whether or not the actor can visit his children unsupervised for subsequent visits.
On top of the monitored visit, the 'Fight Club' star will also be subject to random drug and alcohol testing, although TMZ has reported his first testing came out negative for having any substances in his system.
The news comes just days after it was reported that Brad was waiting to file his response to Angelina's divorce petition until the couple had come to an agreement about the custody of their children.
A source said previously: "Lawyers are trying to work out details of the custody agreement. Brad is waiting to file a divorce response until the agreement is in place."
Angelina has requested sole physical custody and joint legal custody, but Brad is fighting for complete shared responsibility.
