Angie, please don’t take the kids

The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) - - News -

HOL­LY­WOOD star Brad Pitt has told friends he fears his es­tranged wife An­gelina Jolie will take their six chil­dren and move to Lon­don.

Hos­til­i­ties be­tween the cou­ple erupted again last week when the Tomb Raider star lodged court pa­pers say­ing Pitt had not paid any “mean­ing­ful’’ child sup­port since their break-up two years ago — a claim he stren­u­ously de­nies.

Pitt main­tains he has paid Jolie more than $1.7 mil­lion to sup­port their chil­dren and lent her nearly $11 mil­lion to buy a home.

Sources close to both sides say the pair have been at log­ger­heads for months.

“They can’t agree on any­thing,’’ a friend said. ‘‘They’re at each other’s throats again.’’ The source added: ‘‘It’s no se­cret that Angie would like to get full cus­tody of the chil­dren and move abroad.

“Although she has phys­i­cal cus­tody, she can’t move with­out Brad’s con­sent. Brad does not want to have to fly eight or nine hours each time he wants to see his chil­dren.’’ Pitt’s lawyers called Jolie’s child sup­port claim a ‘‘thinly veiled ef­fort to ma­nip­u­late me­dia cov­er­age’’.
