Brad Pitt is feeling a lot better these days. The actor was just spotted in London enjoying a ride in the park after reports surfaced that he won a major victory in his custody battle with ex-wife Angelina Jolie.
The actor is staying overseas while Jolie is busy working on her next movie, Maleficent 2. The actor was seen riding a bike outside of his hotel and looked like he was enjoying his time alone. He donned a white hoodie and dark pants for the outing, completing his look with a newsboy cap.
The sighting comes days after reports surfaced that a judge ruled in Pitt’s favor in regards to his custody battle.

According to Us Magazine, a court ordered Jolie to give Pitt better access to his children this summer, which is one reason he is staying in London at the moment. The court ruled that it wasn’t good for the children to be away from their father for extended periods of time.
The judge also said that it is important for the kids to “have a healthy and strong relationship” with Pitt and Jolie.
In light of the ruling, Pitt and Jolie agreed to a new custody arrangement, which was put in place for the summer. Pitt’s six children – Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Knox and Vivienne – will spend half of their time with him and the rest with Jolie.
The estranged couple will reconvene in court in mid-August. In the meantime, Jolie still has physical custody over the brood but has to allow Pitt access whenever he wants.
Jolie is also required to give Pitt the cell phone numbers of the kids so they can text him. She is not allowed to review the texts.

Jolie originally filed for divorce in the fall of 2016. She and Pitt had only been married for 2 years at the time of their split, though they had been together for over 12 years. Jolie released an official statement in regards to the court documents. The actress says that the documents are false and that the court proceedings have been done in private to avoid such leaks.
Angelina Jolie admits that some of the information is correct, but that only select portions of the proceedings were leaked to the public. The actress slammed the person who leaked the documents for picking portions of the documents to “create an inaccurate and unfair picture of what is really happening.”
Brad Pitt has yet to comments on the leaked court documents.
