Pitt-Jolie divorce case drags on
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are no closer to resolution of their divorce, but Pitt’s first court filing in the case underscores what it’s been all about since their split stunned Hollywood: custody of their six kids.
Where Jolie checked the box to seek sole physical custody in her September divorce petition, Pitt’s recent filing in response checked the box for joint custody.
The pair have been together for 12 years but married for only two years. Their children range in age from 8 to 15. At the moment, under a temporary arrangement, the children are living with Jolie in a Malibu rented home.
Meanwhile, a probe by the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services continues into what happened on a private flight from France to the U.S. in midSeptember.
Did Pitt verbally or physically abuse his oldest son, Maddox, 15, when the boy defended Jolie during an argument? So far, there are no conclusions from the department, which is barred by law from commenting and hasn’t even officially confirmed there is an investigation.
Both stars have kept a low profile since the divorce was announced, but Page Six says Pitt will walk the red carpet at the Westwood, Calif., premiere of Allied, his spy thriller with Marion Cotillard that opens Nov. 23.
