Angelina Jolie asked kids to 'avoid spending time' with dad Brad Pitt, security guard claims

| @indiablooms | 11 May 2024, 12:26 am

Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie has allegedly asked her children with ex-husband Brad Pitt to “avoid” their father during visits, a security guard who worked for the couple has claimed in new court documents obtained by People.

The allegation comes amid the ex-couple's ongoing legal battle over their French winery Chateau Miraval.

Lawyers for Pitt submitted to L.A. Superior Court a declaration from security company owner Tony Webb, who worked for Jolie, from 2000 to 2020; where he claims to have been fired by Jolie, but still currently works for the actor.

In his 12-page statement, Webb claimed an aide working with Jolie named Michael Vieira called him and tried to enlist his help to dissuade two bodyguards who had worked for Jolie via Webb’s company SRS Global from testifying in her separate custody battle with Pitt over their children.

Most of their children have now reached legal age: Maddox, 22, Pax, 20, Zahara, 19, Shiloh, 17, and 15-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.

“During the call, Mr. Vieira told me that he had heard that two contractors who had provided personal security for Ms. Jolie through SRS Global might be testifying in the family court case,”  Webb's statement read as reported by The People. “Mr. Vieira then asked me to stop these two individuals from testifying.”

“I understood that Mr. Vieira was making this request on behalf of Ms. Jolie. I explained to Mr. Vieira that I had no power to stop them because they were independent contractors and not employees,” he continued.

“Mr. Vieira then told me that his call should serve as a reminder that those individuals had entered into non-disclosure agreements with Ms. Jolie and that I should remind them of that and tell them that if they testified in the family law case, Ms. Jolie would sue them,” according to Webb as reported by People.

“One of the two individuals, Ross Foster, specified that he intended to testify regardless of the NDA, if he received a court subpoena,” Webb added.

He further claimed in his declaration, “When Mr. Foster told me this, he also told me that if asked, he would testify about statements he overheard that Ms. Jolie made to the children, encouraging them to avoid spending time with Mr. Pitt during custody visits.”
