Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have finally reached an agreement in their deposition. However, before this settlement, rumours made rounds that the actress almost lost her battle against her ex-husband.
Apparently, Jolie made sure that her court documents didn’t include the expert testimony of psychologist Dr. Robin Deutsch, as well as her videotaped deposition. The actress argued that the psychologist failed to adhere to legal ethical and procedural requirements.
Angelina Jolie Hiding Something?
The insider added that the psychologist’s testimony could’ve revealed Jolie’s deepest and darkest secrets. And she didn’t want this to happen. Who better to testify than a child psychologist! Angelina was probably concerned that they will pivot the case in Brad’s favor.
Before they resolved their custody battle, Jolie tried to pit her children against their dad. In March, she said that her kids are willing to testify against her dad. However, it was only Maddox who has given a testimony.
The divorce is said to have occurred days after an alleged fight between Pitt and his eldest son Maddox on a flight from France to the US, however no charges were ever filed.https://t.co/p5ttaYUMxl

Angelina Jolie criticized by family lawyers
Additionally, Jolie was criticized for pushing her kids to testify against the Once Upon A Time In Hollywood actor. Peter Walzer, a Los Angeles-based family law attorney, as well as Daniel Nottes, a New York-based family law attorney, said that Maddox shouldn’t have been allowed to testify against his dad.
After all, testifying in court against a parent can be very traumatic for the child. And Jolie allowed this to happen in her desire to get full custody of her children. Nottes said about Jolie–
“To spend all this money on continuing to pursue the case, and to try to put the kids on the stand, all that is just wrong. I think it’s an act of grasping at straws and a last resort. It seems to me like a very long Hail Mary play.”
