Brad Pitt is reportedly 'sickened' by how his estranged wife Angelina Jolie has publicized their child custody battle
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are going through a seriously difficult time and even though the pair reached an interim custody agreement, Brad Pitt is reportedly "sickened" by Angelina Jolie and her legal team for letting their child custody battle play out in public.
As reported by ET, a source shared, "He wants this settled out of sight" referring to Brad Pitt who is currently in Los Angeles with their six children Maddox, 16, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12 and twins Knox and Vivienne, 10. "He knows this isn’t fair to the children. He’s saddened that they have to be a part of this [public fight]," the source went on to add. This is just the beginning for Brad and Angelina as they have to continue their divorce process.
"There’s a long road ahead," the source shared before adding, "There is still a lot of sorting out to do".
Another source shared that earlier on this week, Jolie and Pitt had a planned custody hearing even though it was no longer required after their interim agreement. "The interim arrangement was agreed upon by both parties after it was recommended by their custody evaluator," the source revealed. "There was no longer a need for the hearing," the source continued. Currently, there no details on the specifics of the agreement.
"Angelina is enjoying the last few days of summer before school starts. She is helping the children heal with their father. Angelina loves her children and wants the best for them. The trouble is she feels the best scenario for the kids is for her to have sole custody. She is prepared to do what it takes to get what she wants. .... Everyone involved has tried to explain to Angelina that having two parents in their children's lives is healthier in the long run, but she does not see it that way," another source added.
"Brad and Angelina have been encouraged repeatedly to settle this divorce amicably for the children's sake, but Angelina's expectations have actually slowed the process and have affected everyone involved," the source continued.
The recent court drama comes shortly after Angelina was reportedly ordered by a judge in June to help repair her children's relationship with their father. As per the court documents, Brad will get more time with his children over the summer. The couple's oldest child 16-year-old Maddox will have the choice of how much time he would like to spend with his father "because of his age and maturity".
