Brad Pitt has lawyered up!
As we previously reported, Angelina Jolie hired celebrity divorce attorney Laura Wasser to represent her in her messy split from the Fight Club actor. Well, it now appears that the 52-year-old has his own high powered lawyer as it's said he's added family law attorney Lance Spiegel to his legal team.

Now we can't say we're entirely surprised Pitt has turned to Spiegel for his expertise as it's been reported that the A-lister is planning to fight for joint custody of his children amid the troubling child abuse accusations. After Miz Jolie filed for sole physical custody of the twosome's six kids, reports began to surface of an incident where the World War Z star allegedly became verbally abusive and physical while with his family on a private plane. Yikes!
Not to mention, Brad is supposedly taking these allegations against him "very seriously" and is reportedly cooperating with the investigation in order to make this whole thing easier on his kiddos. An insider dished to Us Weekly:
"He has cooperated [with the investigation]. He certainly wants what's best for his kids and for them to be in the best environment and he'll do anything that will put them in the best position."
Fair, fair! The source continued:
"Angelina is a good mother. Brad appreciates and respects her, and knows she's a good mother. He knows that it's important to do what's right for the kids, whatever that is going to be. … These reports about abuse on the plane are exaggerated or fabricated."
Hmm, very inneresting. Nonetheless, we doubt we'll get the full story about what went down until the reported investigation against Brad is completed.
