Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, one of Hollywood's most glamorous and powerful couples, will use a private judge to keep their divorce out of the view of the public, the couple said in a statement. The joint statement said that Jolie and Pitt reached an agreement to keep all divorce documents and proceedings under seal in order to "preserve the privacy rights of their children and family." Attorneys for Jolie and Pitt were not immediately available for comment to Reuters. The Oscar-winning actress filed for divorce in September in Los Angeles Superior Court, citing irreconcilable differences, court documents showed. Jolie sought full physical custody of the couple's children, with visitation rights for Pitt, but did not seek spousal support. Jolie cited their separation date as Sept. 15. Jolie and Pitt, known collectively as "Brangelina," were one of the entertainment world's most visible couples, thanks to their good looks, successful films and activism. They married in 2014 after a decade together.
