Pitt-Jolie di­vorce case drags on

Toronto Star - - ENTERTAINMENT & LIFE -

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.
