Brad Pitt has transformed his multi-million dollar estate into a kid’s paradise. The actor is getting ready to appear in court to end his custody battle with Jolie, and just turned his backyard into an adventure zone complete with a bouncy castle and skate park.
There is no telling how the custody battle will play out in court, but it looks like Pitt is getting ready for a major win.
Pitt has faced an uphill battle to gain custody of his six children. He was investigated for child abuse shortly after Jolie filed for divorce in 2016. The actor was then forced to undergo therapy and was only allowed supervised visits with the kiddos.
But with a court date looming, Pitt appears to have gained the upper hand in the custody war. Daily Mail released images of Pitt’s Los Feliz compound that shows a slew of kid-friendly additions. This includes a massive water slide, bouncy castle, swing set, and a skate park.
A judge will ultimately decide who gets custody of the children, but Pitt is clearly trying to impress them with all the games they enjoy. The actor bought the estate in 1994. He paid $1.7 million at the time and has purchased several surrounding properties to make it bigger.

Jolie and Pitt are scheduled to battle it out before a judge on Dec. 4. The two were on the verge of settling the custody dispute last summer, but the talks fell through and a judge has stepped in to mediate.
It will probably take a few weeks before the judge rules on the case. Once that is done, the two will have to figure out the remaining details on their divorce before they can officially move on.
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie started dating in 2005 after working on the movie Mr. & Mrs. Smith. They tied the knot in 2014.
