Angelina Jolie is calling in the big guns to handle her divorce from Brad Pitt.
According to People magazine, boss crisis manager Judy Smith will be a consultant for Jolie’s legal team. (Jolie is filling for full custody of her and Brad’s children.) Smith, btw, is the powerhouse that inspired Kerry Washington’s character on Scandal. She’s also a producer for the series.
“Judy and her firm have a long history of handling issues that have unfortunately garnered too much attention in the public eye,” a source told People. Think Monica Lewinsky and Paula Deen. “She knows how to push towards resolutions that are swift and discreet.”
We hope so. For the sake of the kids.
