The actor’s lawyers have filed a motion asking a judge to seal records regarding the six kids—Maddox, 15, Pax, 13, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and 8-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne. The attorneys had earlier this month filed a request to seal the entire case and were denied. However, the judge had said at the time requests to seal specific documents would be considered, especially since the children were all minor, Reuters had reported.
In their new filing this week, Pitt’s lawyers allege Jolie and her attorneys have compromised the kids’ privacy through court filings to try to undercut the actor in the couple’s custody battle, NBC News reported Thursday.
His lawyers say the publication of the names of the children’s “therapists and other mental health professionals” in the documents violated a previous agreement to protect the children’s privacy and that Jolie “appears to be determined to ignore even agreed upon standards relating to the children’s best interest,” NBC News said.
Jolie has not commented.
Earlier this month, she and Pitt reached a temporary custody agreement, under which the kids will remain in her custody while the actor will continue to have “therapeutic visitation” with them and also take part in weekly individual therapy sessions with them. Pitt will also have to submit random drug and alcohol testing.
