Brad Pitts inner circle is blasting his ex-wife Angelina Jolie’s claims he sought out Harvey Weinstein for help despite her telling him the film producer assaulted her.

Earlier this week, The Guardian published an interview with the Eternals actress where she discussed her divorce from Brad along with an alleged assault by Harvey.

Angelina met Harvey after being cast in the Miramax movie Playing By Heart when she was only 21. She claims the movie producer made “unwanted advances on her in a hotel room.’

She said, “I had a bad experience with Harvey Weinstein in my youth, and as a result, chose never to work with him again and warn others when they did.”

In the recent interview, Angelina described the incident as “beyond a pass” and said, “it was something I had to escape.” Angelina warned her first husband Jonny Lee Miller about Harvey. She said he “was great about it” and listened to her concerns. Many years later, she was approached to star in The Aviator with Leonardo DiCaprio but she declined due to Harvey’s involvement.

“I said no because he was involved. I never associated or worked with him again. It was hard for me when Brad did,” she revealed. Pitt again worked with Quentin Tarantino in Inglorious Basterds, which was produced released by The Weinstein Company. In 2012, Angelina claims Brad asked Harvey to help him release his film Killing Them Softly.

Sources close to Brad are responding only hours after the article was published. The insiders said he never "teamed up" with the producer for Tarantino's film but rather The Weinstein Company simply distributed it.

As Radar previously reported, Angelina's sit-down comes as she is still fighting her ex in court over custody. Recently, she scored a victory when a higher court granted her motion demanding the judge presiding over the case be disqualified. She accused him of failing to disclose his ties to Brad's lawyers.

Before the judge was disqualified he awarded Brad joint custody of their children. However, since the judge was kicked off his order was vacated.

Earlier this week, the actor filed a petition asking for a review of the decision. He believes the kids should be with him half the time despite Angelina's objections.
