Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were together for 12 long years and were considered as one of the most talked-about power couples in Hollywood, even the subject of latest news. The two are parents to six children, three of whom were adopted from different countries such as Cambodia, Ethiopia and Vietnam.
Two months ago, Angelina Jolie petitioned to end their 2-year marriage last Sept. 20 and sought for sole physical custody of their six children, with Brad Pitt getting visitation. Moreover, the two reached a temporary custody agreement that allowed Pitt to visit his children.
But Jolie wants him to have his visitations monitored while the L.A County Dept. of Children and Family Services (DCFS) do their investigation. This is regarding what happened with Pitt’s confrontation with his 15-year-old son, Maddox in mid-September.
Custody has been their major issue so far after the actress filed divorce, if the latest news is to be believed. Jolie is ready and willing to fight Pitt in court over the custody of their children. Alleged sources said that Jolie is gearing up for a major battle over their six children and wants the family to be repaired.
She expressed that she wants to resume a “normal” parenting regime, but then she will continue to fight for the sole physical custody of their children. Jolie also believes that Pitt has abuse and anger issues that must be addressed. Yet the actor strongly denied any allegations involving abuse of his and Jolie’s kids.
The latest news said that Pitt filed legal documents asking for joint custody of their children last Friday. Pitt’s filing does not include any details about his divorce from Jolie. He also cited Sept. 15 as their date of separation. Brad Pitt also said in an entertainment source that he is trying to get as little attention as possible to resolve the situation – that he is not fighting anyone but simply want his rights to his children.
