Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s divorce drama continues, with a new report claiming Pitt may have found a trump card that will help him win custody of their six children. According to Radar Online, back in 2014, Jolie invited 22-year-old Joel Davis to a United Nations conference about ending sexual violence, but he wasn’t the activist he claimed to be.
It turns out that behind closed doors, Davis was having sex with a 13-year-old boy and also begged undercover FBI agents for sexual pics of kids as young as two years old. With Jolie having an association with a pervert that police arrested for child sex crimes, Pitt apparently is afraid that she may have exposed their kids to him.
“To think that Angie has been associating with a guy like this was enough to make Brad pick up the phone to his lawyers!” says an insider. “His friends are urging him to really play this up as part of his bid for full custody.”

The source added that Pitt only wants what is best for his children – Maddox, 16, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, Knox, 10, and Vivienne, 10 – and he is willing to “battle this out in court.”
Earlier this summer, a judge warned Jolie about keeping Pitt out of the kids’ lives, and he even said that she could lose custody if she didn’t agree to let her ex have supervised visits while she filmed Maleficent 2 in London.
When Pitt and Jolie split back in September 2016, it looked like he was to blame for the shocking divorce filing and her request for full custody. Rumors of substance abuse and infidelity – plus an investigation by the FBI and the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services – tarnished Pitt’s reputation, and he was facing the biggest scandal of his career.

But, Pitt denied the infidelity accusations and both the FBI and CFS cleared him of any wrongdoing against his son Maddox. He did admit to problems with alcohol, but since his split, Pitt has found sobriety. He turned inward, started therapy, and enjoyed plenty of solitude to “strip down to the foundation and break out the mortar.”
Now, he is a new man with a still-successful career, and he is confident that he and Jolie will soon reach an agreement in their divorce and custody battle. An insider says that after the dramatic year they have had, Pitt wants to keep things calm in the future.
Brad Pitt reportedly now has more clarity, and he has gotten through a dark time and “is in a much better place.”
