Angelina Jolie Parts Ways with Her Lawyer in Brad Pitt Divorce Case

Angelina Jolie has released a statement confirming that she’s switching lawyers in her divorce from estranged husband Brad Pitt.

Angelina has decided to change counsel to Samantha Bley Dejean, as Samantha’s expertise is the protection and best interest of children,” Angelina‘s spokesperson told People in a statement.

Previously, Angelina was working with divorce attorney Laura Wasser.

Angelina appreciates Laura’s cooperation in transitioning the case over the past several weeks,” Angelina‘s spokesperson added.

Brad and Angelina share kids Maddox, 17, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, and 10-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox. They reportedly agreed to a custody deal last week.

    I like this new lawyer. She’s doing great. She’s totally on Angie’s side. Good for her and the kids.

  • cee

    Wassers office did too much leaking, especially to TMZ and Page Six. Get ready for another Angie smear campaign. Angie do your thing girl! You look amazing and the kids look happy.

  • Gemini675

    Understandable that Angeljna requires a more specialist lawyer.

  • neer

    SPECIALIST LAWYER is what AJ really needs.

  • Redy

    She is disgusting

  • Pimpcessa

    Lol. all you Jolie LOONS were told this weeks ago, but you decided it was a lie and Laura wasn’t going anywhere…. HAHAHAHAHA. NOW do you believe Wasser left her because she’s a venomous bitter ex that’s trying to alienate Brad from the kids? It will be interesting how many times coming up we will read about the judges admonishment of her behavior. She’s going to fight 50/50 custody with the last breath in her body. It will take years and she will go broke fighting for custody of kids that will be moving out to live their lives in the end. But she won’t have let Pitt win without a scorched earth fight!

  • Estefan M

    There’s been so many rumors over the years that Angelina throws tantrums when she doesn’t get what she wants…sounds like her lawyer has just confirmed that the rumors are true.

  • Pimpcessa

    Yeah because Wasser isn’t good enough? the woman is the MAESTRO of divorce….if the parents want to remain civil and love their kids more than they hate their ex.

  • Gemini675

    As Mindy said, for the protection of the children.

  • Pimpcessa

    No. Angie wants a barracuda to fight Brad, and Wasser felt she was in the wrong and putting everyone through unnecessary stress….INCLUDING THE KIDS! I think we’re going to see a lot more admonishments from the judge towards Jolie in the near future.

  • Sidewithkids

    Really? When? Since they just said she still has them. Lol.

  • Pimpcessa

    The FBI, the courts and therapists have concluded Brad is not a threat to his kids. Looks like Jolie might be the biggest danger these days. And she does it while buying their affections with daily shopping sprees and a no rules home. What kid WOULDN’T prefer to live with her over living with a dad that has rules? She hasn’t figured out that being her kids “bestie” is not how you raise your kids.

  • Pimpcessa

    At this point Brad gets “no less than 4 hours every other weekday and no less than 12 hours every other weekend day”. UNTIL the permanent custody deal is worked out. She’s losing more custody every time she goes to court. HAHAHAHA

  • plez

    So the TMZ story was mostly correct.

  • Pimpcessa

    YEP!

  • Pimpcessa

    BOOM! Sad for the kids though.

  • Sidewithkids

    Actually what happened was Wasser wasn’t on her client’s side and leaking info to Brad’s side. There should be no way his team leaks court docs. Wasser allowed that to happen. Angie’s smart getting a new lawyer. Brad stans just mad b/c after two years she still has the kids. Lol. What he got? Oh, the Golden Globes celebrities cheering for him. Lol. I’m sure she’s fine w/ him having that.

  • tboz

    They just did one Saturday morning.

  • mahbelle

    awwww the loons must be so upset. when one of the most powerful divorce attorneys quit a bitch, it’s for a very very very good reason. angelina is a primo bitcho psycho

  • Pimpcessa

    Lol. and here comes the spin doctors….

  • mahbelle

    you keep telling yourself that.

  • Sidewithkids

    She needed a lawyer on her side. Wasser was ready to give in to Brad’s demands even though the kids still don’t want to see him. How do you allow court docs to be released? That’s not how you represent your client.

  • Pimpcessa

    If Wasser was truly guilty of that Jolie would have her license revoked, and you know it!

  • tboz

    Wasser was not doing anything but leaking to Harvey and I can guarantee Angie found out. Plus the other lawyers have convinced her and shown her more in a month than Wasser has in two freaking years.

  • Pimpcessa

    She loses more custody every time she goes to court. LOL

  • Sidewithkids

    Then how did it happen P? How they get the court docs? You know it was Brad’s side that leaked them. So how they do that if Wasser did not allow it?

  • Seriously

    The loons are here! The loons are here! I love you guys. So many shades of crazy…just like your Queen.

  • Pimpcessa

    Those docs were public. Because of Angie.

  • Alen

    Does she think people are dumb? TMZ said weeks ago Wasser had enough of Jolie and quit. Her publicist denied. Now they’re trying to make it seem as Jolie has fired her? She’s an arrogant joke.

  • Tiffany C.O

    That don’t surprise me. This woman is as fake as they come.

  • mahbelle

    I find it HILARIOUS who angie’s lunatic stans are spinning this. HILARIOUS!!!!! Like they know what kind of lawyer she needs. Their delusions are massive.

  • Pimpcessa

    You have NO idea how his kids feel about him. We do know she’s alienated Brad from them and the judge admonished her for it!

  • mahbelle

    BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA Wasser is one of the best of the best.

  • Pimpcessa

    Lol. They are kinda special aren’t they? Kinda like watching a short bus of window lickers driving by….

  • Sidewithkids

    How are court docs public, relaying info about the kids whereabouts? That’s not public, Brad’s team made it public. His own kids he says he cares about. That’s messed up. As a father you protect your family, you don’t hurt them.

  • mahbelle

    And how do you know who great this lawyer is doing and why do you like her? Delusional one thinks she knows what’s best for her imaginary BFF St. Angie Ho.

  • Tiffany C.O

    The children will suffer because of her actions

  • William Bradley & The Jolie

    Yep

    And these are the same lawyers that walked her right into a media firestorm with that stunt filing.

  • mahbelle

    Oh really? And you know this how? You have “inside information” on their acrimonious divorce (acrimonious thanks to crazy st angie ho

  • Sidewithkids

    I know therapists are still needed when he’s w/ the kids. I know Maddox doesn’t want to talk to him or be around him. I know the kids want to be w/ Angie more so than Brad. Why that P? After two years, why he still need therapists to be around when he’s w/ the kids?

  • William Bradley & The Jolie

    LOL

    HYPOCRITES

    Everything was rah, rah, Wasser’s the best. She’s going to take it to Brad.

    Now, all of a sudden, folks have issues with Wasser.

    Some of us told you from the beginning.

    But the spinning is funny.

  • mahbelle

    How do you know the kids want to be with The Witch more than they want to be with Brad. Did they tell you that? No one knows if therapists still have to monitor Brad’s visits anymore BUT we do know The Witch was admonished by the court to stop with the parental alienation. And she wouldn’t, thus Wasser quit her bony ass.

  • mahbelle

    I think I hear heads exploding LOL

  • Sidewithkids

    Who do u think leaked the TMZ story? You think that was Angie? Lol. Washer and that man over the show are friends. Come on, putting on your thinking caps. I know you all like Brad but let’s not become completely stupid to how things work. If Wasser was doing her job those court docs would not have been shown to the public. Did we see Affleck and Garners? What about GP and the man from Coldplay? No. We did not.

  • Sidewithkids

    Lol.

  • mahbelle

    As P said, Brad has gained more visitation and Angie keeps shooting herself in the foot.

  • Sidewithkids

    It is tho. Lol.

  • Leopards skin

    You don’t know what she did. Easy for you to judge. Besides, isn’t Wasser just a divorce lawyer?

  • mahbelle

    oh honey, no. the delusion is deep with you . yes, let’s NOT be stupid as to how things work. PARENTAL ALIENATION. Wasser QUIT. Get that through your head.

  • Sidewithkids

    How they suffering? You all just make stuff up. Kids doing great. Two years w/o their Dad in their home.
