Angelina Jolie Basically Just Hired Olivia Pope To Join Her Divorce Team
If you were somehow under the impression the Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt divorce was going to be amicable HAHAHAHA it’s not. It’s really not. Jolie hired crisis manager Judy Smith, the inspiration for Kerry Washington’s character Olivia Pope on Scandal.
Jolie’s team has retained the help of legendary crisis manager Judy Smith, amid the actress’ ongoing divorce with Brad Pitt. …“Judy has been asked to consult with those working with Angelina on divorce negotiations,” a source close to the situation tells PEOPLE. “Judy and her firm have a long history of handling issues that have unfortunately garnered too much attention in the public eye, and she knows how to push towards resolutions that are swift and discreet.”
So naturally, Brad Pitt’s airplane meltdown, which resulted in him being investigated for child abuse, was leaked to the media. But wait, there’s more!
And with the latest addition of Smith, Jolie is quickly creating a powerhouse team in her ongoing split from Pitt. Celebrity divorce attorney Laura Wasser is also representing the actress.
If you don’t know who Laura Wasser is, you should by now. She was Johnny Depp’s lawyer. She wasn’t Amber Heard’s lawyer, so despite every piece of irrefutable evidence that Depp abused her, Amber Heard walked away with $7M of Johnny Depp’s $400M fortune. $7M that she couldn’t even keep, because Wasser forced her hand. Long story short, Jolie ain’t fucking around with Brad Pitt. I would say Jennifer Aniston’s nipples are hard over this news, but that’s probably just the cocaine.
