The friends star in 2009 film Tourist and also share the same divorce lawyer
Angelina Jolie is being consoled by her former co-star Johnny Depp in the wake of her split from Brad Pitt, it’s been claimed.
The mum-of-six, 41, and Johnny starred together in romantic thriller Tourist back in 2009 and are said to have remained friends ever since.
The pair also share the same divorce lawyer, Laura Wasser, who represented Johnny through his divorce from estranged wife Amber Heard.
Johnny, 53, reportedly recommended Laura, who has worked with a string of high-profile celebrity clients in the past, to Angelina after the actress was there to support him during his bitter break up.
“Angelina idolised Johnny for years before she worked with him on The Tourist, and then the pair of them really hit it off on set,” a source claimed to The Sun.
Over: Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie
“There’s no suggestion that their closeness played any part in Angelina and Brad’s split. But they have been speaking about the situation, and Angelina hired Johnny’s lawyer to represent her based on the advice that he has given her.
“Her friends are now speculating about what could happen between them if she and Brad are not reconciled and their divorce goes through.”
Meanwhile, Hollywood star Brad – who is said to be ‘wrecked’ by the fact he hasn’t been able to see his kids – is at the centre of claims he clashed with 15-year-old son Maddox on board a private plane days before his wife filed for divorce.
TMZ reports that although the FBI is investigating the incident between Brad, 52, and Maddox, the case is likely to be dropped as conflicting accounts make it impossible to prove what happened.
And according to the website: “DCFS [Department of Children & Family Services] social workers saw no evidence of injuries on Maddox and no one filed a police report after the incident.”(L-R) Actress Angelina Jolie, Maddox Jolie-Pitt and actor Brad Pitt
Sources close to Brad have previously insisted that allegations of abuse against him are “exaggerated and fabricated” with sources close to the actor hitting out at the “smear campaign” against him.
A source told: “These claims are exaggerated and fabricated.
“It’s unfortunate for the whole family that people are insisting on continuing this endless smear campaign against Brad that hurts everyone.
“Hopefully people can move on and leave them all alone to work this out.”
Maddox was adopted by Angelina from Cambodia when he was only a few months old in 2002 and Brad, who started dating Angelina a few years later, adopted him in 2006.
The couple also have children Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Knox and Vivienne, eight together and all six children were onboard the flight when the row broke out.
