The actress and director recently filed documentation, detailing the incidents with her ex-husband, and revealing that she is prepared to offer “proof and authority” in support of the controversial claims.

Documents also indicate that she would be providing her testimony, and the testimony of all of their children, 19-year-old Maddox, 17-year-old Pax, 16-year-old Zahara, 14-year-old Shiloh, and 12-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne, would also be available for the ongoing legal case.

It had been previously reported that their eldest son Maddox got into an altercation with Brad in 2016 during a flight, which led Angelina to file for divorce in September of that year, however the accusations were later dismissed.

The former Hollywood couple split up five years ago and have been enduring a legal battle over the custody of their children.

While Angelina has admitted that “the past few years have been pretty hard” for her, another source commented on the recent documents, explaining that her proof of domestic violence “is just another case of Angelina changing the narrative when it suits her.”

Maddox is said to have a much better relationship with Angelina, as he “doesn’t really see himself as Brad’s son,” however it’s expected that the testimonies collected in court from the actress and their kids will set the custody agreement.

A close source to Brad Pitt stated that this is an attempt to hurt him, adding that “there have been a number of claims made by Angelina that have been reviewed and not substantiated.”
