Brad Pitt May Have 'Bombshell' Angelina Jolie Recordings

If Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's divorce case goes to court, it could get ugly. A source told The Sun, "We believe audio tapes exist of Angelina that would be absolutely dynamite against her if they were to be made public." The source claimed Pitt and his legal team would consider using the audio in a potential trial after Jolie's lawyers claimed they planned to "prove" Pitt was abusive. Still, the Pitt source says the actor is reluctant to pull out the big guns for the sake of their kids.

"Nobody wants to play dirty like that—it's not good for the children—but Angelina and her team seem absolutely hell-bent on trying to discredit Brad in order to stop him getting joint custody," the source said. "Yes, there was an argument on a plane between him and Maddox, but that's it. Brad has made it obvious that he wants to come to a mature arrangement and stop throwing dirt at each other."

As Nicki Swift previously reported, the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services cleared Pitt, 52, of child abuse allegations after exhaustive investigations found no evidence of abuse on the plane or of a pattern of abusive behavior. When that news was announced, Jolie's rep told TMZ, "Angelina said from the beginning that she felt she had to take action for the health of the family and is relieved that after their 8-week involvement, the DCFS is now satisfied the safeguards are put in place that will allow the children to heal."

The investigation's findings will likely help Pitt in his case for joint custody of Maddox, 15, Pax, 13, Zahara, 12, Shiloh, 10, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 8.

However, insiders also told TMZ that Jolie, 41, "feels the kids would be at risk if Brad gets joint custody, and if he doesn't drop his claim she'll present evidence to the divorce judge that Brad has committed abuse."

The FBI, who previously interrogated Jolie, is still investigating the incident on the flight.
