Brad Pitt Wins Joint Custody Of Kids After Nearly 5-Year Battle with Angelina Jolie

Brad Pitt has been granted joint custody of his children with Angelina Jolie following a nearly five-year battle.

According to Page Six, a source close to the issue said it was a “tentative decision,” adding that Jolie is continuing her legal fight.

The AP reported that the judge in the case “refused to hear the minor teenagers’ input as to their experiences, needs, or wishes as to their custody fate,” citing a California code that says a child 14 or over should be allowed to testify if they want to.

The custody arrangement is in regards to the couple’s five minor children — Pax, 17, Zahara, 16, Shiloh, 14, and twins, Vivienne and Knox, 12. Eldest son Maddox is now 19 and not subject to any custody decisions.
