Brad Pitt Reportedly Concerned Custody Battle Will 'Damage' Kids

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt to go head to head in custody battle

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt to go head to head in custody battle

Exes Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are working toward settling custody of their six children.

According to multiple reports, a source close to the Oceans 11 actor has said he's concerned the hard trial could have longterm effects on his kids.

After first separating from her husband on September 15, 2016, the Oscar victor filed for divorce from on September 19, citing irreconcilable differences. Entertainment Tonight notes that the two reached an interim agreement in August of this year.

Furthermore, they plan to not only finally to agree about custody (recall that Jolie insisted on sole custody, while pitt at the joint), but also to solve the issue of division of property. Jolie and Pitt did not sign a prenup when they got married, which makes everything more complicated.

While Pitt's fears that the ongoing court battle could damage their kids, that hasn't stopped the last two years of leaks to the media.

In the meantime, Jolie, and pitt try to escape from all this judicial red tape: actress spends time in South Korea with their sons Maddox and Paxon, and pitt is starring in the new film by Quentin Tarantino, along with his colleagues Leonardo DiCaprio and Margot Robbie.

Pitt denied claims he physically abused the then 15-year-old, and while he was investigated and later cleared by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the damage to his reputation was done.

But days later, the Fight Club star argued he had "loaned" his estranged wife $8 million to help her purchase her current house and contributed over $1.3 million "in bills for the benefit of [Jolie] and the minor children".

The messy battling looks to continue as the pair head toward court.
