Next month will be the six-year anniversary of Angelina Jolie who shocked the world by filing for divorce from Brad Pitt.
But despite being declared legally single in 2019, the ancestors still aren’t ahead in coming to a custody agreement for their children—even as they reach college age.
A source familiar with the legal battle told The Post, “It appears that Angelina has determined that Brad should never receive 50/50 custody.” “And there are some who say she won’t rest until the kids are legal adults, so Brad will never be placed in shared custody.”
The latest in this seemingly never-ending war is the salvo. “Angelina makes a constant stream of attacks on Brad. And she intentionally sold her disputed portion of her vineyard to a buyer she knew she didn’t want,” admits a friend of Pitt’s. Is.
Pitt, 58, has been on red carpets around the world lately as he prepares to open his latest film, “Bullet Train,” this weekend, but apparently he can’t escape Jolie’s long reach.
In legal papers in June, 58-year-old Pitt claimed that 47-year-old Jolie deliberately tried to harm “his interests of the peak Miraval wine brand by selling it to Russian businessman Yuri Scheffler, the founder of Stoli Vodka”.
Pitt said that they have agreed to never sell their respective shares without each other’s permission. He also asked for trial by jury.
“It’s her baby, she’s very proud of it, and she’s put all the profits from the business into the vineyard and Miraval studio,” said a Hollywood friend.
“Unfortunately, Angelina sold her share, which was contrary to their agreement, to someone they had both previously turned down,” the friend said, as Pitt had not previously asked for a deal with Stoli. .
And then came the recent news that Jolie’s lawyers sent process servers to the SAG Awards in February, hoping to catch Pitt off-guard with a subpoena for Miraval cases at the event. (He did not appear.) According to informed sources, this was another example of Jolie trying to make public view to make the situation worse.
In April, Page Six reported that Jolie had reportedly launched “a desperate fishing expedition” by suing the FBI under the name “Jane Doe” for an alleged 2016 private-seed involving Pitt and her son Maddox. Find out more about its investigation into the jet dispute incident. And why his agents didn’t charge the actor.
An anonymous call to officers was made, which triggered an FBI investigation, which closed on November 22, 2016, with no charges. A few days later, Jolie filed for divorce.
Page Six is also reported that, behind the scenes, things got tense earlier this year, when Pitt’s legal team believed Jolie’s lawyers had hired a court-approved child psychologist from the California Attorney General. the office of the P.O. on the basis of his belief that the doctor had taken the side. With Pitt, concluding that Pitt should have 50/50 custody of the children.
Psychologist Stan Katz, who spoke to the Jolie-Pitt minor children for the custody case, is currently subject to a non-criminal investigation by the California Attorney General’s office, according to a filing presented in the Superior Court of California and seen by Page Six.
Katz is believed to have never complained about him in a career spanning 30 years. A source close to Pitt called the report “annoying” of Jolie.
Although another insider with knowledge of the issues insisted that Jolie had nothing to do with the investigation, a highly placed legal insider told Page Six that only one or both parties involved in the case could complain. Huh. A friend of Pitt’s confirmed that it was not the actor.
The filing stated that: “The court found that the petitioner (Jolie) filed a notice of non-opposition and the defendant (Pitt) took no position.”
Katz declined to comment. We reached the AG’s office. The scope of the investigation is not known, and it is not clear whether the investigation is still ongoing.
Page Six revealed that after several years, Pitt was given joint custody of their minor children in May 2021.
However, Judge John Ouderkirk was later disqualified from the case for not adequately disclosing business relationships with Pitt’s lawyers – so it was back to square one, and the former still made it through to custody. are fighting for.
Another source familiar with the matter revealed: “Everything is at a standstill. Last year was a real rollercoaster. Brad was given 50/50 custody in a lengthy, detailed judicial decision. The appellate court then set aside the decision on the grounds that it had nothing to do with the essence of the case.
“It was an internal dispute between judges and private judges in California, nothing to do with the custody agreement. It was a technicality. It’s not clear where things stand now.”
Meanwhile, Pitt is not believed to be close to himself and Jolie’s eldest son, Maddox, who turns 21 on Friday.
When asked how often the actor gets to see other kids, a source familiar with the matter said: “He gets to see them, but he still doesn’t have 50/50. But he tries to figure it out. doing. “
Representatives for both Jolie and Pitt were not available for comment.
X has six children. Maddox currently studies biochemistry at Yonsei University in Seoul, South Korea. 18-year-old Pax is believed to have continued her schooling, and 17-year-old Zahra Spelman is about to attend college.
Jolie announced in an Instagram post that Zahra will be attending the Historically Black College in Atlanta this fall.
“Zahra with her Spellman sisters!” The “Eternal” star captioned an image of her daughter surrounded by fellow Spelman students.
Daughter Shiloh, 16, shows off her hip-hop dance moves in a viral clip set on Doja Cat’s “Vegas” in June.
Pitt joked about it at the “Bullet Train” premiere: “I don’t know where he got it. I’m Mr. Two-Left-Feet here.” He also said that Zahra’s acceptance into college “brings tears to my eyes.”
It’s a new side to the Oscar winner, who shares 14-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox with Jolie, because he’s been so protective of his kids before that he’s rarely talked about them.
Pitt has been on the “Bullet Train” promo trail for the past month, traveling to Paris, Berlin and London.
In Germany, the actor walked the red carpet wearing a skirt he co-designed with Hans Nicolas Mott.
When asked why she wore the skirt, Pitt told Variety: “I don’t know! We’re all going to die, so let’s mess this up.”
The Hollywood Friend said the answer is simple: “Brad travels regularly, but it was his first big event for a few years and he had a lot of fun with it.”
But “fun” doesn’t mean romance right now. Pitt “is not currently dating anyone,” said Hollywood friend. “He’s been on dates over the years, but he’s not currently dating anyone.”
Instead, Pitt is spending time exploring his art, architecture, and hanging out with friends. He will appear alongside Margot Robbie and Olivia Wilde in the Damien Chazelle-directed drama “Babylon”, which opens on Christmas Day.
“He’s in a good place,” said Hollywood dude. “He had a good break in Europe. He seems refreshed and relaxed.”
