Brad Pitt will fight for joint custody

22 September 2016, 15:26

Los Angeles - Brad Pitt wants joint custody of his children.

The Fight Club actor's estranged wife Angelina Jolie has sought joint legal, but sole physical, custody of their six kids, 15-year-old Maddox, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Knox and Vivienne, eight, in her divorce petition - which was filed on Monday - but the 52-year-old star isn't going to agree with her request.

A source told TMZ Brad insisted: "There's no chance that's going to happen."

The insider claims Brad thinks Angelina, 41, is a "great mother" and he doesn't want to interfere with her ability to co-parent or hurt her in the divorce, but he won't allow her to "thwart" him.

It has been claimed the Changeling star filed for divorce due to her concerns about how Brad parented the kids, as well as worrying he has an anger problem and indulges too heavily in alcohol and marijuana consumption.

However, sources insist the Big Short star has "never" put his offspring in danger.

Brad has admitted he is "very saddened" by the demise of his 12-year relationship.

In a statement, he said: "I am very saddened by this, but what matters most now is the wellbeing of our kids.

"I kindly ask the press to give them the space they deserve during this challenging time."

Meanwhile, representatives for Angelina - who tied the knot with Brad in 2014 - said she filed for divorce for the sake of her kids.

Her longtime manager Geyer Kosinki told E! News: "Angelina is doing what's best in the interest of taking care of her children. She appreciates everyone's understanding of their need for privacy at this time."

Whilst entertainment attorney Robert Offer added in a statement: "Angelina has filed for dissolution of the marriage. This decision was made for the health of the family. She will not be commenting, and asks that the family be given its privacy at this time."
