However, It has been recently reported that the actor is hiding the truth from the public.It is said that Brad Pitt is afraid that people would come to know about his real self.

The Wrap reported that the papers filed by the actress' lawyer Laura Wasser on Jan 3 made him fear the truth will come out. "Likely terrified that the public will learn the truth, Respondent is now casting blame at Petitioner for the consequences of his own actions," the report said.

The "Benjamin Button" star is reportedly terrified that people will find out what he is really like. Jolie's lawyer further accused the actor of not following the child custody norms agreed by both the stars earlier. Wasser added that Pitt is desperately trying to hide the truth from the public as it will damage his reputation.

Jolie's lawyer accused Pitt's lawyer for filing papers to accuse the actress and also claimed that Pitt and his lawyer have used this as their strategy to redirect Pitt's participation in the issue, affecting their children.

The 'Allied' actor was accused of striking their eldest son, Maddox, during a plane trip. Though, last November, the Department of Children and Family services cleared him from the charges. Entertainment Tonight reported that Jolie mentioned her side of the issue in the recent document filed in the court. Jolie stated that her ex-husband has been determined on sealing the divorce documents.

The situations is turning ugly each day with Pitt and his lawyer Lance Spiegel requesting to seal the divorce documents filed last Dec. 21, and Jolie's lawyer consistently slamming the 'Benjamin Button' actor for engaging in such actions.

The 53-year-old-actor complained that his estranged wife, for the sake of her benefit, has been disregarding the privacy rights of their children as she revealed the names of their children's therapists.
