Amid custody battle with Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie parts ways with high priced divorce attorney Priya Sopori

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie may have split back in 2016 but their divorce is yet to be finalised as the major bone of contention is the custody of their six children - Maddox, 19, Pax, 16, Zahara, 15, Shiloh, 14 and 12-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox. While Pitt is contesting for 50/50 custody of their kids, Jolie is not of the same opinion.

According to Daily Mail, Angelina has yet again parted ways with a lawyer post letting go of Laura Wasser in 2018. The high-priced divorce attorney in question is Priya Sopori, a Los Angeles-based former federal prosecutor working with the 45-year-old actress' lead lawyer Samantha DeJean. Sopori was out after filing a Notice of Withdrawal of Attorney of Record with LA Superior Court. It isn't known whether it was Jolie who fired Sopori or if the lawyer quit the high profile case herself. A source close to the Maleficent: Mistress of Evil star shared with Daily Mail that Angelina has "fought tooth and nail' in order to get what she wants in this divorce and will not back down especially when it comes to her children.

"She's paying her legal team a fortune, so if she believes one of her lawyers needs to go she won't hesitate to pull the trigger," the source added. As of now, DeJean is the only lawyer representing Angelina in her custody battle against Brad.

Back in 2018, Laura, who has represented the likes of Johnny Depp, Ryan Reynolds, Ashton Kutcher and Kim Kardashian amongst many others, had reportedly stopped working for Jolie when her legal fight with Pitt apparently became too "venomous and nasty," which was not a good fit to Wasser's "more gentle conciliatory approach."

Anonymous : Guys why are you so mean to a humanitarian actress. U guys are just haters. I bet U guys have children and you guys wouldn't like it if the court would take away your kids. She is their mom adopted or not she will always be their mom. She loves her children she doesn't have them just for money. If she had them just for the money they would be locked up in a room and they wouldn't look happy and healthy. SO guys keep Ur opinions to Urself . If U have nothing nice to say then just shut ur mouth. CUZ I bet if that was U people were talking about U wouldn't like it and U don't know hat she has been through or what she is going through. U don't know how she feels. U guys are probably living a happy life with ur husbands but why don't U guys look at it from a good point of view. Look how she takes care of all six of her children by herself. When I looked at these post all I saw was people talking bad about her when all she has done is good. She is the #1 Humanitarian actress why don't U guys say anything good about her huh. Oh I know Because U guys are jealous that she actually has a rich life and is much more beautiful than u guys.

Anonymous : It takes two people to have children. Humanitarian should start with her own children first. Teaching children to hate half of themselves is child abuse. I'm sorry she can't teach you to share. If you were in school with other children you would have learned that. Then teach your mom a lesson she didnt learn. Angelina had a mom who didnt share Angelina and her brother with their dad. Conscious co-parenting is the way of the future. I thought Jolie was capable of that.... Being the humanitarian she touts herself as... Hope the kids get to see their grandparents before it's too late. Put the World Back Together song written by Cornbread Harris. Check it out on Youtube. Could be your family theme song... Humanitarians and all.
