The inner circle allegedly helping Angelina Jolie smear Brad Pitt

THE public sniping against Brad Pitt has simmered down now that Angelina Jolie’s political advisers have gone back to England.
Lady Arminka Helic, a Bosnian-born member of the UK House of Lords and a former adviser to Britain’s ex-Foreign Secretary William Hague, and fellow former Hague aide Chloe Dalton have been behind Jolie’s campaign against Pitt after she filed for divorce, multiple sources tell The New York Post.
One source said, “They have been calling all the networks and news outlets, placing stories that he was cheating, drunk, on drugs, out of control and abusive, which Brad denies.”
A second source added, “Their last move was to urge news outlets to obtain the video of Brad allegedly losing his s**t on the tarmac. But that video didn’t surface, or doesn’t exist.”
The first source continued, “They were with Angelina in LA as she filed for divorce, and advised her how to handle things last week, which was basically a scorched-earth approach.”
But other insiders insist that Helic and Dalton are focused on humanitarian work, which is how they met Jolie.
Helic, who fled the Bosnian War as a refugee in the 1990s, served as a special adviser to Hague and persuaded him to launch the UK’s global sexual-violence initiative, which was backed by Jolie.
Helic was nominated to the House of Lords in 2014, taking the title Baroness Helic, and also manages Jolie’s charity.
But while Helic and Dalton have been advising Jolie on her international humanitarian work, it has been claimed that their relationship goes beyond that, and the pair plays a prominent role in her life, counselling her on everything from child care to travel.
Helic and Dalton could not be reached, and a rep for Jolie didn’t get back to The New York Post.
Pitt has hired divorce lawyer Lance Spiegel, who recommends mediation in high-profile celebrity cases — so perhaps he may bring some peace to the Jolie-Pitt hostilities.
