Angelina Jolie Fires Her Divorce Attorney Laura Wasser
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s divorce has been anything but messy, which is why Angelina has decided to cut ties with high-power attorney Laura Wasser. Now she is working with attorney Samantha Bley DeJean.
Samantha filed Angelina’s latest court filing earlier this month, where she accused Brad of not paying any “meaningful” child support for a year and a half, which Brad’s lawyer denied in his own court filing.
“Angelina decided to change counsel to Samantha Bley DeJean of Bley and Bley, as Samantha’s expertise is the protection and best interests of children,” a statement reads. “Angelina appreciates Laura [Wasser]’s cooperation in transitioning the case over the past several weeks.”
A source told Entertainment Tonight that “Angelina put Samantha in the lead of the case a month ago and over the last month the case has fully transitioned to Samantha. Samantha’s expertise is the protection of children and over the last few weeks she [Angelina] has really come to rely on Samantha’s counsel.”
