Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt Release First Joint Statement Amid Divorce: We're 'Committed to Act as United Front'

By
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have put out a joint statement, sharing that they've both signed agreements to keep all of their court documents private.
"The parties and their counsel have signed agreements to preserve the privacy rights of their children and family by keeping all court documents confidential and engaging a private judge to make any necessary legal decisions and to facilitate the expeditious resolution of any remaining issues," the statement from the actors reads. "The parents are committed to act as a united front to effectuate recovery and reunification."
The joint statement marks the first released statement from Jolie and Pitt together since news broke that the Maleficent actress filed for divorce from Pitt on Sept. 19. Since the split, the estranged exes have been in a legal battle over custody of their six children -- Maddox, 15, Pax, 13, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 8.
In court documents obtained by ET on Wednesday, 41-year-old Jolie slammed Pitt, saying that her estranged husband is insistent on sealing divorce docs pertaining to custody because he's "terrified that the public will learn the truth."
In a previous motion, 53-year-old Pitt accused Jolie of disregarding their children's "privacy rights when she believes it may benefit her," claiming that the actress "exposed the children by making public the names of their therapist and other mental health professionals."
Pitt made a surprise appearance at Sunday's Golden Globes to present a clip from Moonlight, where he was clearly well-received by a cheering audience -- most of all, his Ocean's Eleven co-star, Matt Damon. Pitt's production company, Plan B Entertainment, helped to produce the critically-acclaimed film.
