Angelina Jolie Hired One of the Most Powerful Black Women in the World to Handle Her Divorce

Angelina Jolie Hired One of the Most Powerful Black Women in the World to Handle Her Divorce

Nice knowing you, Brad.

Published September 30th

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's divorce is getting uglier by the minute, so the mom-of-six decided to reach out to one of the most famous "fixers" in the world to handle it.

No, we're not talking about a girl's night out with Kerry Washington, who plays crisis manager Olivia Pope on Scandal. According to reports, Angie has hired the real-life Pope, Judy Smith, to do some damage control around her split — and possibly set the stage for her political career in the near future.

"Judy has been asked to consult with those working with Angelina on divorce negotiations," a source close to the situation tells People. "Judy and her firm have a long history of handling issues that have unfortunately garnered too much attention in the public eye, and she knows how to push towards resolutions that are swift and discreet."

Considering Smith's track record — she helped Paula Deen, Michael Vick, Monica Lewinksy and countless others move on from potentially career-ending scandals — we have doubt this divorce will also be "handled" in no time.

Just hope Brad Pitt knows what's coming.
