Angelina Jolie is doing everything she can to prove that her estranged husband Brad Pitt is an unfit father. A new report claims that the Girl, Interrupted star has hired a team of private investigators to spy on her ex while she is in the U.K. shooting the Disney sequel, Maleficent 2.
According to Radar Online, Jolie wants updates on Pitt’s every move, so she recruited a group of confidantes who are highly connected to keep tabs on the Fight Club star. The shady tactic is part of a vicious custody battle that got even nastier this week when Jolie’s attorney filed a motion with the court claiming that Pitt hasn’t paid child support since they split in September 2016.
Jolie has gotten so hostile that her own attorney, Laura Wasser, reportedly wants to quit. And, it looks like she may be stepping away from the case since it was Samantha Bley DeJean who wrote Jolie’s most recent court filing, not Wasser.

However, Jolie has denied that Wasser is quitting her divorce case.
The 43-year-old reportedly wants to “step things up” even though she is already receiving a flood of information about Pitt’s movements. Insiders say that hiring private investigators is Jolie’s latest tactic to find out who Pitt is hanging out with, and she wants dossiers of information that she can use in the divorce and custody settlement.
“It’s nearly two years since Angelina filed, and she is still refusing to back down when it comes to finalizing a divorce and custody settlement with Brad,” an insider claimed. “Brad is renowned for his relaxed persona, and Angelina is exactly the opposite – a real perfectionist.”
The source went on to say that Jolie basically wants a packet of information that she can use as ammunition against Pitt in court. When they finalize their divorce and custody terms, Jolie wants it to be clear that Pitt is not up to being a dad.
Jolie is preparing for a “really bitter war” when it comes to splitting assets and determining custody. However, some of her friends believe that hiring private investigators is an “over the top” idea that would look “terrible” in court if she attempted to present evidence from one of her spies.

A judge has already told her to ease up and let Pitt have a positive relationship with their children, so if she walks into court with a dossier from a PI full of information against him, it could end up doing her more harm than good.
This summer the kids have gone back and forth between Jolie, who is shooting in London, and Pitt, who is shooting the new Quentin Tarantino movie in Los Angeles.
Insiders say that Angelina Jolie isn’t going to get anything on Brad Pitt at this point because he has been working hard instead of “drinking, smoking weed, or womanizing.”
