Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were hammering out their differences in private … until she decided to switch tactics and go public with their child support battle, which Pitt believes is doing harm to their children.
According to our sources, Brad and Angelina had been quietly working through custody and support issues for months and both sides had agreed to keep things quiet and work with a private judge on the specifics.
But we’re told once Angelina parted ways with celebrity divorce attorney Laura Wasser, her new legal team began a “full court press” in the media and made everything public.
Our sources say Brad Pitt felt he was forced to respond to their attacks, even though he thinks a public battle is “terrible for the kids,” some of whom are now old enough to read about these kinds of things on social media.
We’re told Brad believes the whole thing should remain private and finds the public battle to be “disgusting.” Our sources say Brad is hoping Angelina sees how this is hurting the kids and stops the public fighting.
