The most-talked-about divorce conflict of the year is about to start. ? The family law attorney, who represented Heather Locklear and Charlie Sheen, as he prepares for a divorce and custody battle with Angelina Jolie has been hired by Hollywood star Brad Pitt. Lance Spiegel will represent the celebrity after joining his legal team according to a popular entertainment site.
Spiegel, 70, also represented celebrity Eva Longoria in her split and the late Michael Jackson, among other high profile customers.
Jolie, 40, filed on Monday for divorce, citing irreconcilable differences. Her legal team also includes
Hollywood lawyer Robert Offer, who has spoken to the media on his customer’s behalf. “She requests that the family be given its privacy at this time, and is not going to be commenting,” Offer added in a statement. Pitt released his own statement which read, “I ‘m quite saddened by this, but what matters now is the well-being of our kids.
It was initially reported officials in the Los Angeles Police Department and LA County Department of Children and Family Services were looking into the alleged incident, which happened on a private jet last week, days before her papers filed to stop her two-year marriage. The DCFS investigation remains said to be continuing, but an LAPD spokesman has made it clear detectives are not involved and do not have an open case on the performer.
Looks like, this legal fight will be a messy affair!
