Brad Pitt Reportedly Reached Out To Angelina Jolie To Try To Settle One More Time Before Trial
Brad Pitt cannot wait until his custody war with Angelina Jolie is over. The World War Z star reportedly reached out to Jolie in a last-ditch attempt to settle the custody issue out of court. Instead of trying to come to an agreement, Jolie refused and the two are scheduled to battle it out before a judge next month.
“He reached out hoping to pursued Angie that the hearing will cause lasting psychological damage to their children,” an insider dished. “There will be not winners, no matter what the judge decides.”
Pitt has been trying to win joint custody of the kids ever since Jolie filed for divorce in 2016. The two were together for over a decade and have six children: Maddox, 17, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, and 8-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox.
There is no telling what the judge will decide next month, but there is a good chance that Pitt and Jolie will end up splitting custody. Pitt has done a lot over the past two years to prove that he is a capable father. He also won a small victory this past summer when a judge ruled that he should have easier access to his children.
Whatever happens, we can only hope that the kids make it through without suffering any psychological damage.
A source in the Jolie camp, meanwhile, told Us Magazine that she is working to resolve things out of court as well. The insider says that Jolie does not want a judge to decide what happens to her children and is open to reaching a settlement.
The actress, however, is not willing to give Pitt joint custody and will settle for nothing less than primary control over the kids. Unless she changes her stance soon, the case will go to trial on Dec. 4.
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have not commented on the reports surrounding their bitter custody war. It will likely take a judge a few weeks, if not longer, to decide how to handle the custody arrangement.
