Angelina Jolie apparently needs to find a new divorce attorney after well-known power lawyer Laura Wasser is apparently planning her exit from the actress’ side in her divorce proceedings against Brad Pitt.

This news comes out this morning according to TMZ, where a source claims that Jolie’s “out for blood” style of fighting through the divorce has left Wasser feeling like things have gotten “too venomous” to continue working on her behalf.

The source paints Angelina out to be the bad guy here, noting how she is supposedly also “fueled with anger, and has gotten ridiculously unreasonable,” as divorce proceedings have wore on.

But whether or not that’s true, there’s a more simple fact at play: Wasser, a very successful attorney to many celeb clients, has made her name in divorce circles by working hard to promote co-parenting and amicable financial settlements.

If that’s not what Jolie wants — and it appears that, no, it’s definitely not what she wants — then Wasser just isn’t a good fit, and it’s likely better for both if they move on from each other.

Regardless, word has it that Angelina is already prepared to hire another law firm after Wasser officially leaves. The divorce from Pitt isn’t really close to a settlement yet, either, so we can be sure we’ll be hearing more about this as it winds the legal path.
