Movie legend Al Pacino came face to face with his ex-wife recently in a bitter battle over their twin toddlers. The 63-year-old Godfather star is fighting actress Beverly D’Angelo for joint custody of the two-year-olds.
The pair met in a heated Manhattan, New York, court battle yesterday. Pacino has previously accused 48-year-old Beverly – who had Olivia and Anton through IVF treatment – of holding the youngsters “hostage”. Pacino’s lawyer Martin Wasser said, “Beverly continues to use the kids in a way that makes them hostages. She literally makes us feel that we are in the baby rental business.
Every hour that Al wants to spend with a child, she wants to be paid more money.” But D’Angelo’s lawyer Dan Klores hit back, “The conduct of Al Pacino’s attorney has been reprehensible. There should not be a mother in America who isn’t appalled by his language, deceptions and untruths. “He’s trying to make a name for himself by attacking the mother of two children.” The case continues.
