Brad Pitt hires Charlie Sheen’s lawyer to take on Angelina Jolie

Brad Pitt hires high-profile divorce lawyer

The Brangelina war wages on.

According to E! News, Brad Pitt is enlisting the help of Lance Spiegel to square off against Angelina Jolie in what many are predicting will be a nasty, bitter battle.

Lance is a prolific, high-powered attorney with a wealth of experience in star splits. He has represented Michael Jackson, Eva Longoria, Heather Locklear, and most notably, Charlie Sheen.

This latest development in the divorce drama of the decade (arguably century?!) comes after reports suggested Brad was being investigated for child abuse.

On Monday, Sept. 19, Angelina filed for divorce after two years of marriage. The pair had been together for a total of 12 years.

She cited irreconcilable differences as the reason, and is seeking physical custody of her six children with Brad.

Angelina has had her lawyer and team secured since she filed for divorce earlier this week.

While addressing the divorce in a statement given to E! News on Sept. 20, Brad said, “I am very saddened by this, but what matters most now is the well-being of our kids… I kindly ask the press to give them the space they deserve during this challenging time.”

    Who cares? What makes them so special that it becomes headline news when there are actually important issues that require our attention.

    The marital state of two people is nobody’s business but theres. The squaring off of piranha like lawyers, trying to gain leverage over the other, turns divorce into a battle ground. This is NOT in the best interest of the children despite the protestations from both parents that …that will be their main focus.

    Leave them alone to sort out their own affairs …..no pun intended.

    Just as an aside…it is hardly likely that Brad was beating the heck out of his child on a flight for all to see. Think about the number of times when you have felt like giving your child a warning slap. I’m not condoning violence against children, but there is a difference between abuse and discipline.

    Doesn’t Brad see that hiring a pit bull as a lawyer is going to result in an antagonistic and difficult relationshup between him and the mother of his children?

    who cares what they do, the only reason every body is making so much about this is because who they are, well they are no different than you or myself, and what was there down fall was all the different kids she wanted around her, this should have been really thought about real good before doing this, so i really do not care what they do.

    Yup, this story just sold 10x more tabloid magazines. Possibly adultry, child abuse aligations, etc…. In the middle: a bunch of kids that likely have no idea what is happening and will have this memory to tarnish their thoughts of childhood.
