The custody battle between recent divorced couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt continues. As we recall, Jolie filed divorce from Pitt last September 19 and sought full custody of their six children because she claimed that Pitt has come “physical” with their son Maddox.
Since then, Pitt has not backed out for his children and wanted joint custody of their kids. Currently, the two are under a temporary custody arrangement, and still negotiating an official agreement, according to Hollywood Life. Pitt has already visited his kids twice since the split but it is still unclear whether or not he reconciled with his son Maddox.
The custody battle has been chaotic and dramatic for both parties because even officials from FBI and Child Services are included, but now the kids itself is on the tangling situation. OK! Magazine has reported that their oldest biological daughter Shiloh, 10, together with 12 year-old-brother Pax, have stated their own opinion on the matter. They reportedly asked to live with their dad, Brad Pitt.
A source claimed that Shiloh and Pax would “prefer to live with their father” and that the two “always had a strong bond and both of them have long felt more compatible, emotionally, with Brad.”
Now that the children has weighed in on the situation, it will become unclear what will be the decision for Jolie, since some of them are against on what she is asking for – that all of them should stay with her. This could be a big game changer for Pitt and an advantage for him. Maddox still has chosen to stay with her mother while other children have not yet spoken up.
We all wish this could be over but this custody battle is obviously far for being settled, as everyone’s opinion crosses others. Pitt has already sent in legal papers for the first time after Jolie filed the divorce, so we may hear soon as the negotiations continues.
