Brad Pitt enlists Charlie Sheen's lawyer amid divorce from Jolie

Actor has enlisted the help of lawyer Lance Spiegel for his divorce from actress Angelina Jolie.

Pitt has engaged Spiegel, who has earlier represented high profile celebrities like Michael Jackson, Eva Longoria during her divorce from NBA athlete Tony Parker, producer Mike Fleiss, Russell Simmons, Heather Locklear and even Charlie Sheen, reports eonline.com.

The news comes after previous reports explaining that Pitt was questioned by the Department of Children and Family Services in Los Angeles County about allegations that he was involved in an incident with a child on a private plane travelling from Europe to L.A.

Law enforcement sources have shared that the investigation is being looked into by only DCFS and not the FBI or LAPD as some outlets have claimed.

Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt on Monday, after being together for more than a decade.

Citing irreconcilable differences, Jolie is also seeking physical custody of her six children with Pitt --Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and 8-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.

She's asked for joint legal custody, however, as well as visitation for Pitt.
