According to new reports, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie will be in court on the 4th of December to settle their differences regarding the custody of their six kids. Multiple publications confirmed the news through documents filed in the LA County Superior Court yesterday.
TMZ claims their battle won’t be pretty, with Angelina demanding full legal and physical custody, whereas Brad is yearning for a 50/50 split. However, a source who spoke with E! News claimed that rumor may be just that: a rumor.
An insider who spoke with E! News earlier explained, “Angelina is not seeking sole custody of the kids.” The outlet claims Angelina is more than happy to share custody.
Either way, Angelina and Brad have plenty of time to work things out, as LA Judge John W. Odenkirk is assigned to the case all the way until the 30th of June, 2019.
As it was previously reported, Jolie and Brad have been at each other’s throats ever since splitting up in September 2016, in what was one of the most disappointing as well as surprising breakups in recent memory.
Supposedly, an incident occurred on an airplane involving Brad and their oldest son, Maddox Jolie-Pitt. However, following an investigation, officials revealed no abusive behavior had occurred.
Regardless, Brad agreed to visit with his kids only when a psychologist was present, and also complied with drug and alcohol testing. In 2017, Jolie and Brad traded a few public shots at each other but eventually agreed to keep their divorce out of the public’s eye as much as possible.
Moreover, in March, Brad agreed to stop drinking alcohol. These days, Jolie has been working as a visiting professor at the London School of Economics, whereas Brad has continued working in films, including Fury among others.
Brad and Jolie’s split was a surprise to many. For many years, they were regarded as one of Hollywood’s most revered couples, other than Justin Theroux and Jennifer Aniston; Anna Faris and Chris Pratt; and Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith. As 2018 comes to a close, only Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith remain a couple out of those just listed.
