American actress, Angelina Jolie has released a second statement regarding her divorce from Brad Pitt and their custody battle.

Angelina had filed for divorce the health of her family and the safety of her children.

When the news of the separation broke, her attorney, Robert, released this statement:

“Angelina has filed for dissolution of the marriage. This decision was made for the health of the family. She will not be commenting, and asks that the family be given its privacy at this time.”

According to Elle, Pitt was cleared of child abuse allegations, following the investigation by the Los Angeles county department of children and family services into an incident involving his eldest son, Maddox, on a private plane on September 14.

In a statement released on her behalf by a spokesperson, Jolie said that the safety of her children is her primary concern.

“The job of the DCFS is to make sure the children are in a safe and secure situation.

“As we said earlier this week, childcare professionals encouraged a legal agreement accepted and signed by both sides that was in the best interest of the children.

“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.”
