Not Letting Go! Brad Pitt files for joint custody of children amid divorce from Angelina Jolie
Brad Pitt isn’t letting his kids go without a fight.
The 52-year-old actor has filed for joint legal and physical custody of his six children with wife Angelina Jolie, according to paperwork filed with the Los Angeles County Superior Court.
Jolie requested sole custody of Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and 8-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne when she filed for divorce in September.
Pitt filed for custody of all six children, including Maddox, who recently refused to see his father after an alleged violent incident on a flight.
“While this was not his best moment, it’s being inaccurately described,” a source said. “He certainly could have behaved better, but there was no physical abuse.”
Jolie filed for divorce on Sept. 19, citing irreconcilable differences. No permanent settlement has been announced.
