Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s Custody Battle Heats Up With Bodyguard Testimony

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s highly publicized divorce continues to be a contentious one, with the latest battleground being their custody agreement and a French vineyard. New details have emerged from a former bodyguard’s testimony, potentially shedding light on the ongoing dispute.

Bodyguard Claims Attempted Witness Tampering

Tony Webb, a former security guard who worked for the couple from 2000 to 2020, is now providing services to Brad Pitt. According to court documents filed by Pitt’s lawyers, Webb alleges that Angelina Jolie’s former assistant, Michael Vieira, attempted to influence his testimony regarding the couple’s children.

Webb claims Vieira pressured him to dissuade two security contractors from testifying in the custody case. These contractors, who reportedly had non-disclosure agreements (NDAs) with Jolie, allegedly planned to testify despite the agreements. One contractor, Ross Foster, went a step further, stating his intention to reveal details about conversations overheard between Jolie and the children, where Jolie may have discouraged contact with Pitt.

A Long and Winding Road to Custody Resolution

Jolie and Pitt, who were together for several years before marrying in 2014, share six children, three biological and three adopted. The couple’s tumultuous divorce began in 2016, and custody arrangements have been a major point of contention ever since.

While the divorce itself was finalized in 2019, custody agreements remained unresolved. In 2021, Pitt was finally awarded joint and legal custody of their five minor children (Maddox, Pax, Zahara, and Vivienne are no longer minors). However, reports suggest a strained relationship between Pitt and some of the older children.

French Vineyard Adds Another Layer of Complexity

Further complicating matters is the ongoing legal battle surrounding Chateau Miraval, a French vineyard co-owned by the former couple. Details regarding the ownership and future of the winery remain unresolved.

Looking Ahead: Will the Latest Revelations Impact the Custody Agreement?

It remains to be seen how these new allegations will impact the ongoing custody battle. The claims of attempted witness tampering could potentially influence the court’s decision, particularly if the contractors’ testimonies corroborate Foster’s account.

This latest development highlights the complexities surrounding Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s divorce, a situation that continues to capture public attention.
