Rumour has it that Brad Pitt is in possession of some 'dynamite' audio recordings about his estranged wife Angelina Jolie and if they are made public it might serve a major blow to the actress's custody battle. However, the authenticity and existence of the concerned clips were questioned by a gossip debunking website as they claimed that the rumours about the recordings were false.
Reinforcing the facts, a report by Gossip Cop quoted a source close to the World War Z actor saying that he has "no idea where this came from," and further assured that it was "certainly not from a legitimate Brad source."
The original news was reported by The Sun on Friday (11 November) and it claimed that the alleged audio recordings "would be absolutely dynamite against [Jolie]" if they are released.
While stating the gravity of the situation the report also mentioned how the six children of the estranged couple might be affected if the rumoured recordings are made public.
"We believe audio tapes exist of Angelina that would be absolutely dynamite against her if they were to be made public," a source close to the estranged Hollywood couple told the newspaper.
Shedding further light on the rumoured tapes, the source added, "Nobody wants to play dirty like that — it's not good for the children — but Angelina and her team seem absolutely hell-bent on trying to discredit Brad in order to stop him getting joint custody."
"Yes, there was an argument on a plane between him and Maddox, but that's it. It's not abuse. Brad has made it obvious that he wants to come to a mature arrangement and stop throwing dirt at each other."
While the contents of the concerned tapes have not been disclosed, rumours about it seem to be timed after the Allied actor was cleared of all abuse allegations by the Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services. According to a report, the 52-year-old actor was found innocent in the child abuse allegations that were filed following his altercations with 15-year-old son Maddox on a plane.
Following this news, the Maleficent actress's team shot back saying that Jolie has more evidence to prove that Pitt committed abuse against his teenage son.
A representative for the actress told TMZ on Wednesday, "Angelina said from the beginning that she felt she had to take action for the health of the family and is relieved that after their 8-week involvement, the DCFS is now satisfied the safeguards are put in place that will allow the children to heal."
The mother-of-six filed for divorce to end her 2-year-old marriage with Pitt on 19 September, and following the announcement, the actress sought sole custody of her children – three adopte and three of her own. Earlier an official statement shared by her team claimed that the separated couple has reached a custody agreement.
"In accordance with this agreement, the six children will stay in their mother's custody, and the children will continue therapeutic visits with their father."
