In a blockbuster exclusive, sources told RadarOnline.com that Angelina Jolie plotted to drag Aniston into her explosive divorce battle with Brad Pitt.
"Angelina intended to have her legal team subpoena and depose Jen," an insider revealed. "She wanted to have her grilled regarding Brad's past drug and alcohol abuse."
The cutthroat Tomb Raider star also threatened to have her attack dogs give Aniston the third degree about whether Pitt had anger issues.
"It was a devious and ruthless move on Angie's part," dished the insider.
But Pitt, 52, headed off Jolie, 41, by voluntarily agreeing to a temporary agreement with the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services .
As Radar reported, according to the agreement, which lasts only until Oct. 20, Jolie gets full physical custody of their six kids, Pitt gets visitation — but in the initial visit, a therapist has to be present — and he is subject to random drug and alcohol testing.
Celebrity divorce attorney Raoul Felder told Radar: "Brad was in an impossible situation. No matter what happened, there was nothing positive in it for him."
"The charges that have been made against him may or may not be based in fact. We still don't know — and Angelina's played him like a violin," added the lawyer.
"Angelina was vicious! She let Brad know in no uncertain terms that if he chose to go to court, it would get dirty," said a source.
