Why are Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s custody battle so far from over?
The relationship between Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie began with disputes. The couple starred in Mr. & Mrs. Smith in 2004 while Pitt was still married to Jennifer Aniston. Later, Jolie admitted that their relationship first arose during the filming of this film. In 2005, Pitt and Aniston broke up, and this drama caused one of the most extensive discussions in Hollywood … For a while, the relationship between Pitt and Jolie seemed solid as a rock, and in 2006 Pitt adopted Jolie’s children – Maddox and Zahara. That same year, they reported that they were wishing their first child together, Shiloh Jolie-Pitt.
In 2008, their twins Vivienne and Knox were born. The couple secured the knot in 2014 at a ceremony at the family’s French estate, Chateau Miraval, and all the children took part in the ceremony. “It was important for us that the day passed calmly and was full of laughter,” The lovers said then. “It was such a special day that we shared with our children and a pleasing time for our family .”
A couple of years later, in 2016, Everything went awry when Jolie filed for divorce. Like many other famous couples, the actress cited “irreconcilable differences.” And now, after the divorce, the actors found themselves amid a bitter struggle for custody of children, which is still far from over.
The custody battle is moving at a snail’s pace. A reference close to the case said that Pitt complained to pals about “the drama in the courtroom,” and he thinks that Jolie “will never agree to joint custody and will wait until the children are 18 years old.” The older children Pax and Maddox have already become adults, but Zahara, Shiloh, and the twins Vivienne and Knox are also. The insider also revealed that “Brad won’t give up the fight,” but Jolie hopes that by the time her kids turn 18, they “want nothing to do with their dad .”
