Brad Pitt Files for Joint Custody of His Children With Angelina Jolie
Brad Pitt has filed his response to Angelina Jolie’s divorce filing, and he is fighting her for shared custody of the kids.
Jolie slapped Pitt with her divorce filing in September following an alleged incident on a private jet between Pitt and their eldest son Maddox.
The actress is demanding sole custody of their children Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and 8-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne, and wants to only allow Pitt to have visitation rights.
But on Friday night Pitt, who strongly denies allegations of abuse, filed his first legal paperwork asking for joint physical and legal custody — meaning their divorce war will continue, and even possibly intensify.
A source told the New York Post, “There has been a lot of damaging information leaked about Brad from Jolie’s camp, but in the past month, things have quietened down. Now he is challenging Jolie and asking for joint custody of the kids, there is an expectation that there will be more attacks from her camp.”
