Inside Brad & Angelina's Meeting with Lawyer

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie did meet with a lawyer last month, but it wasn’t to work out details on a split.

The couple spent time with a law firm in L.A. in December, a source tells Life & Style, “where they worked out terms of a legal document similar to a prenup.”

Brad and Angie signed the document in January, which means the couple will share money, assets and custody of the kids (who would all live with Angelina in the event of their parents’ breakup).

The source says that there was no talk of a split at the meeting.

    Come on no one puts stuff like that in writing unless it is going to be in the near future. Its clear things are going south.

  • just jolie

    OMG! They are like a real life Ken and Barbie. They are what all couples aspire to being and love how they take care of everything, to let their heavenly children know that in any event, mom and dad will be there.

    They are so beautiful and they are perfect in every way. I cannot say how much respect I have for their work in charitable causes and on the screen. God really shined on these two when they were born and when they got together.

    God Bless the Jolie Pitts!

    Hoboy-Jared is pimping Lies and Sheet and I bet trolls, because they are brainless and have no logic will use this as proof of break up. L&S just basically write their own spin on the NOTW lies and Jared felt obligated(paid) to post this crap.
    .
    Meanwhile over at Sundance, Katie is alone, unpretty and w/o Tom and rags are not screaming BREAK UP!. I guess when It comes to Brad and Angie, everyone in Hollywood is distant second and does not merit any mention to rags and tabloid. It’s all Brad and Angie all the time.
    .
    Even after someone accidentally on purpose told E about their Haiti donation, because she donates quietely, it’s Brad and Angie that all is talking about. Trolls are scouring the internet for any negative news about this couple to make themselves feel better. Really sad bunch of people-the trolls are.
    .
    I will not post on this thread and will stay on the other thread. Change nind, sScratch that- I will give Jared a break and will not post and lurk for few days. I think I will check out Pittwatch instead for new pictures.

  • teri

    Love this family regardless of a breakup. I’m sure fans will agree also. They are perfect together and I wish them all the best.

  • anon

    Life and Style? Enough said. This isnt’ from their camp it’s from another anonymous source, so why would you believe this story?

  • http://aol.com Unbelievable!!

    Poor loonies! They can’t see the forest for the trees. Wake up! (shaking the loonies) Wake up I say! The fat lady has already sung and is smoking a cigar. Wake up!

  • Linda

    “That guy is really evil.He is doing all these rumors because his book didn’t sell.”

    Still, in light of all this frenzy I don’t understand why they don’t make a more official announcement telling everyone they are still together. Weak denials from “sources” or “friends” simply don’t cut it this time.

    The fact that they themselves are silent speaks volumes..

    By the way who is leaking this information???? They can’t trust anyone to keep things confidential.

    The point being that these decisions are always made at the time custody is decided and not before. You can make whatever wishes known you want but in the end it is the court that decides and that decision is always based on the best interests of the child at the time.
    .
    Courts are not bound by the wishes of the parents or guardians. The reality if that there are not usually a lot of people interested in taking custody of children that are not theirs so, despite the melodrama of Lifetime TV, there is not often a custody battle when parents die. Most times you have a problem finding people to take custody of orphaned or abandoned children.
    .
    I wonder who is designated as preferred guardian – Doug or Julie? Maybe it’s Uncle George – damn, Lake Como would be a great place to grow up.
    .
    Shared assets? Is anyone believing that? Brad didn’t even share assets with his ex-wife. They kept their incomes separate. Hmm. I smell a wedding.

  • t.m.delafonda

    I don’t know how true this may be when the rest of the article most likely has them breaking up, fighting, missing x (Brad), etc. Anyway…. Angelina and her brother, James, made a video honoring their mother’s passing three years ago, and it is beautiful. I found it on TMZ and I must say that it is poignant and very, very beautiful.

  • anne

    they’re not showing up anywhere together, so it does make me wonder. i can’t wait to find out.

  • WTF?

    THIS IS A PLOY FROM LIFE AND STYLE TO GO AND PICK UP THEIR RAG. NOBODY PICK UP THIS RAG. THERE’S A LAWSUIT THAT’S GONNA HIT THEM HARD. WTF IS ALL OF THIS? THERE WAS NO MEETING. IT WAS VERIFIED NOT BY SOME LOSER BUT BY SOMEONE WHO POST ON HERE BEFORE JARED PUT UP THE LAST THREAD. THERE IS NO AGREEMENT, THERE ARE NOT GOING TO ANY STUPID ACADEMY AWARDS, AND THERE WERE NO AGREEMENTS TO WEAR CERTAIN DESIGNERS TO THOSE AWARDS.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! tTHEY DID NOT BREAK UP!!!!JARED IS ACTUALLY POPPING UP HIS COMPETITION HOW STUPID IS HE?

  • 2+2=5

    This is stupid, JJ.

  • tmz

    TMZ posted a video. It is said that Angie and her brother make a video tribute their mother. I am not sure it is really made by Angie and her brother but it is a beautiful video.

  • anon

    These rags have no sources. We are the better sources.

  • lmao

    what next? Brad and Angelina took a piss this morning? rtoflmao!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • B

    So…pretty much Just Jared is confirming the story in it’s entirety. There’s really not much difference to this story than the original one in the News of the World publication. Their “source” also said that there was no set date for a split either, that the contract hadn’t yet come into affect. Methinks somebody somewhere is doing damage control over the fact that this wasn’t supposed to be common knowledge yet…

  • awwwwww

    a prenup? They are getting married.

  • Brad Fan

    A,/b> lawyer? that’s right, a lawyer . A lawyer specializing in cease and desist. I’m sure all of these fake news people out there will be getting a letter from a lawyer.

  • OnlyNFairyTales

    I think I’m going to try to jump on the band wagon and suck some money off Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie names. Writing about hollywood breakups that happen every day, boring.. but wedding day fairy tales where all dreams come true? BINGO. Imagine the passion and romance that sparked between them? imagine the great s*x! And the kinkier the better, because there are some sickpuppies out there still with cash to buy that will buy any bs, especially when main stream news quotes a liar. Hahahaha.
    Seriously “Fairy tales are happily ever afters that never end” – Mrs. Smith!

  • please

    Angelina is mourning her mom while the whole world goes berseck about a break up. Bless her heart.

  • uUu

    finally brad will be free of that minx.

  • groundcontrol

    Hee hee. Who else in the world gets people into such a frenzy? I am finding this hilarious. Angei has never felt the need to dignify such undignified intrusions into her life. Why sould she now? And Brad has learned to shrug these off like some pgieon poop that landed on his shoulder.
    .
    The only way I see the Jolie Pitts changing their tune and responding to scurrilous gossip like this is if they feel someone is getting hurt by this latest round of “break up” rumors. Mark my words, they are going to end up decamping to Europe full time just to give their kids a normal life.
    .
    My god. Who else generates this kind of excitement and frenzy? And who else generares this kind of money for the tabloids and gossip mongers? NO ONE. That’s who.

  • steve

    Angelina Jolie lives in a different world from tabloits. She uses her time, money,and talent for the victims of wars, hatred crimes, and natural disaters. The tabloits explores her fame to print all lies , never have any evident, to collect money from stupid people who believe their malicious stories

  • Nice

    I see it as the first steps of getting married, it true.

  • please

    The tribute to their mom is so touching.

  • tmz

    If there is such a prenup, TMZ will get it and post it. So now TMZ has nothing, so don’t believe it. According to TMZ, it is BS.

  • OnlyNFairyTales

    I’ll include a entire chapter on the lies. How misguided these two are getting hitched, notice the big rock on Jolie finger in her last appearance? OMG its huge!

  • lurkersville

    OMG since when are legal matters public? what law firm will do that and risk not only getting sued themselves but disbarred? What law firm gives and inside look? I call BS.

  • besane

    Just curious:

    In order to adopt from Haiti, do you have to be married?

    This legal arrangement (if this is true) had to be done anyway, but this actually could be that they are indeed getting married. If they want to adopt from countries where the couple need to be legally married, they would do that.

    Oh my, I don’t care if they are legally married or not, but just imagine the haters if this is indeed the case—WAAAAY other way around about Jolie-Pitt’s union, MARRIAGE! That would surely send them off the cliff.

    LOL!

  • groundcontrol

    Sorry for all my typos above but you get the drift.
    .
    I agree this is all BS but pre-nups are not filed with the court so how would TMZ get their hands on one? It would have to be stolen. The California Bar would have Harvey’s azz if it doesn’t already.

    These are the same people who promised giving an inside look at Angelina’s red velvet wedding cake when in actuality it was a picture of some wedding coordinator’s vision of what Angelina’s cake would be if she had Angelina as a client.

  • OnlyNFairyTales

    The Wedding most likely will be on the First Day of Spring. A Saturday in March. (for the stoopid FFloosers that is March 20, 2010), how sweet, they didn’t want to overshadow someone’s futile movie. Let it be sunny skies and perfect temps for the beautiful couple.

  • lurkersville

    @groundcontrol:

    And you can trust that the paper trail by the person who gave & aquired it WILL be found.

    It’s still all BS.

  • CLINIQUA

    FCK YOU JARED & JASON ENG – Ahhhh – I see Jared and Jason Eng must have worked out a new deal with the Bauer publications in the wake of the Tsunami Break Up rumor that went around the world – strike while the iron is hot – eh Jared??? Try to do as MUCH damage as possible while the revenue streams are hitting.
    .
    Oh it’s LIFE & STYLE, the other BAUER LYING TABLOID SISTER PUBLICATION of IN TOUCH, the one that said Angie cheated with a dialect coach?? Working the old good cop bad cop angle as they do. It’s got to be accurate – right???
    .
    ..and the TWO of these TABLOIDS are sister publications to the OTHER BAUER German tabloid Das Neue that printed an interview that never happened that said Angie condoned cheating. Well then Jared – it MUST be true.
    .
    NOTICE HOW JARED has the Life and style link really small and faint. Hahahahaha!!

    BYE ALL, if I’m here at all – I’ll be on the OLD THREAD. NOT THE ONE ADVERTISING THE RAG THAT RIPS THE JOLIE PITTS APART WEEKLY FOR THE LAST 5 YEARS

  • Maria from Texas

    THIS IS SUCH HAPPY TIME FOR BRAD AND ANGIE THEY ALREADY HAVE THE PRE-NUP—NEXT IS MARRIAGE, THAT IF THEY AREN’T ALREADY MARRIED. SUCK, THOSE LEMONS CHINNISTON, YOU AND YOUR WHINY RETARDS. NOW EVERYBODY IS LAUGHING AT YOU CHINNISTON. GERALD SEEMS REAL HAPPY WITH THAT YOUNG GIRL. CHINNISTON, SHE COULD BE YOUR DAUGHTER. HAHAHAHAHA–THANK YOU JARED FOR PUTTING THEM NEXT TO EACH OTHER. WHINEY, PATHETIC. PATHETC, BTC**.NOTHING WORKS WORKS FOR YOU. . THAT’S EVIL KARMA THAT YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE. DEAL WITH IT.

  • ELLLES

    Sensible, this couple always thinks of their kids first. They are in love, Angelina looks up at Brad adoringly like he is all her christmas’ at once, Brad cant stop reaching out to touch her and tenderly kisses her head repeatedly, this was just recently. It’s all there. THEY ARE HEAD OVER HEELS DEEPLY IN LOVE AND TOGETHER , that doesn’t change suddenly. Jackie collins witnessed them at the charity do and said the tabs get it all wrong.
    Whether they have gone and got a sort of pre-nup or not, & personally I think they did , as its very sensible, they are married without the paper and Brad would want to make sure the kids and angie are secure if anything happened to either him and Angie too is practical. Its sane people. It makes me think they are very solid in fact. They would have discussed this before they even got together, they had a lot to think about and just put ink to it.

  • the skank is here posting!

    i won’t blame life& sheez ,everybody claims their exclusives and they (life& sheez) need to sell their rags you know.If jj can claims his exclusives just for hits, i won’t blame him either,he needed it to make profit and make it rich. Well jj got the money from endorsers, i think that’s why he’s doing every shady tricks for web hits.Pretty much everybody is in this game, the media, ragloids,publicist,gossip authors( ie…ian freakerin),powerful agency and others. The fact that jp don’t have agents or publicist , some agencies and publicist jobs are in danger because they might gonna be out of job, i mean some of them. Seems like some people out there are in unity to bring this couple down and to let them know,they need publicist or agent. Well seem like the jolie-pitt are starting this trend ,most especially jolie is more the main target because we all she is the main influence on that. Also about humanitarian thing, bono has been doing that for a long time,but jolie-pitt make it a cool trend. Now everybody wants to be a humanitarian,even atleast for a day or two. The only question are these followers sincere or just for photo op, i guess it doesn’t matter as long as it benefits those people in need.Likewise,there was been so many adoption before by celebrities like farrow,sharon,tom cruise but it was only cool trend ,when jolie-pitt did it. Now everybody wants to adopt. Although, the jp’s did more of these as a couple, but i will give more credit to jolie because she influence him a lot. I would say brad influenced her by giving a solid foundation and direction to her and his dream of having a big beautiful family. They are not an ordinary family either, but a globe trotting,down to earth and multi- educated in different cultures and family background. While all the useless ones are here on the net pawing who’s hot and who’s not.

    Whether it is separation, divorce, wills and living wills, estate planning, no lawyer or law firm is legally allowed to leak any document concerning their clients. Please publish the name of the law firm who disclosed this information so the lawyers may be dis-barred.

  • Jess

    Tomorrow is the day Angie’s mother died for 3 years. The video on TMZ is so touching.

  • ebmo
