Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s separation is no longer just about them. As their divorce progresses, the split has turned into a battle of who will be with their six children; and apparently, more controversies.
The latest news about estranged couple Brangelina reveals a judge has declined Brad’s request to seal details about the custody dispute. According to Angelina’s lawyers, the 52-year-old actor’s request was a “thinly veiled attempt to shield himself” from embarrassing details that might come out and not really because of the children’s sake.
Brad Pitt Rejected by Judge
The World War Z actor had filed an appeal to airtight details about the custody dispute with ex-wife Angelina. However, Los Angeles Superior Court Richard J. Burge denied the request as the filing allegedly did not meet the requirements and the judge refused to see the expedited petition.
As per Brad’s sworn declaration, he is concerned that if the “court records are not sealed,” it might cause “irreparable damage” to their six children’s privacy rights. Meanwhile, the Maleficent actress’ attorneys wrote that Brad really just wanted to protect himself against embarrassing details when the actor seeks for increased visitation.
Will The Kids Be With Angelina Jolie Alone For Christmas?
For the festive season, the decision on who the kids will want to spend their Christmas with will be up to the kids themselves. Latest news reveals the children’s psychiatrist will purportedly not force the children if they chose not to be with their father.
Previously, it was uncovered that the children did not want to spend Thanksgiving with Brad. With that, Brad allegedly decided not to press anything to the children to let them decide on their own.
Meanwhile, the 42-year-old actress has never left her children’s side since filing the divorce last September. Production of her next film was even delayed as the Tomb Raider actress wanted to make sure the kids to heal.
Currently, Brad Pitt is allowed therapeutic visitations while all six kids, Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh and twins Knox and Vivienne, are with the Angelina Jolie.
