Power couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were making headlines the past few weeks thanks to breakup rumors spread by UK’s The News of the World. After getting tired of denying these allegations, Brad and Angie have done a big step against the paper: they’re going to court.
Hollywood’s most powerful pair are filing legal action against the British tabloid, after claiming that they had met with a divorce lawyer and are on the process of dividing their properties and custody of their six kids, Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Vivienne and Knox.
The heads of the Jolie-Pitt family filed a complaint at the London High Court to proceed a case against the paper, says their lawyer Keith Schillings.
“The News of the World has failed to meet our clients’ reasonable demands for a reaction of and apology for these false and intrusive allegations which have now been widely republished by mainstream news outlets,” says Schillings in a statement. “We have advised them to bring proceedings which they have now done.”
Meanwhile, the divorce lawyer which the paper cited in the divorce rumors, Sorrel Trope, says that he had never been in contact with Pitt or Jolie. “I have never met your… clients or had any involvement with either of them. The foregoing is true with respect to all other members of this firm.”
