Angelina Jolie Accused of Turning Children Against Brad Pitt

Angelina Jolie has been accused by her former security guard, Tony Webb, of attempting to turn her children against ex-husband Brad Pitt during custody visits. Webb, who headed Jolie's security detail for two decades, claimed that Jolie instructed the children not to speak to their father during these visits.

Webb alleged that Jolie required him and his contractors to sign non-disclosure agreements (NDAs) relating to personal and professional details of her and her family's life. When two contractors were preparing to give evidence in a family court case, Jolie's personal assistant, Michael Vierra, reminded them of their NDAs and threatened to sue them if they testified.

One contractor, Ross Foster, who worked security on Pitt and Jolie's 2015 film "By The Sea," pledged to testify if subpoenaed by the court, despite the NDA. Foster claimed that he overheard Jolie encouraging the children to avoid spending time with Pitt during custody visits.

Webb's company was fired by Jolie after two employees testified, and he now works for Pitt. Pitt's lawyer, John Berlinski, accused Jolie of using NDAs in an "improper manner" to "silence her security detail and prevent them testifying truthfully in court about what actually happened behind closed doors."

In response to the new claims, Jolie's lawyer, Paul Murphy, accused Pitt of trying to "cover up his deplorable actions." Murphy stated that Pitt's attempt to equate common NDAs for security personnel with his own demands for an expanded NDA to ensure the continued cover-up of his actions remains shameful.

The allegations are part of the ongoing dispute between Pitt and Jolie over the Miraval winery they once owned together. The couple separated in September 2016 and have been involved in a long-running custody battle. Jolie claimed in a recent motion that Pitt had a "history of abuse" towards her before the 2016 plane incident that led to the end of their marriage.
