Actor and producer Brad Pitt, 52, and actress, producer, and humanitarian Angelina Jolie, 41, still haven’t come to the point where they can finalize their divorce. However, Pitt’s first filing on Friday, November 4 tells us what their divorce is really about: custody of their six children, namely 15-year-old Maddox, 12-year-old Pax, 11-year-old Zahara, 10-year-old Shiloh, and eight-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox.
Pitt’s filing was in response to the divorce filing Jolie made back on September 19 in Los Angeles, California. She asked for sole custody of the children; Pitt asked for joint custody. Under a temporary agreement, the children are living with Jolie in a rented home in Malibu, while Pitt has been able to see his children on scheduled, monitored visits. What’s more, the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services is continuing an investigation to find out the details of a supposed altercation that happened between Pitt and his eldest son, Maddox, during a private plane flight to the United States from France in mid-September.
