The Hollywood star Brad Pitt just scored a huge victory in his ongoing custody battle with his ex-wife Angelina Jolie, as he has been awarded significantly more time with his children.
The source told Insider that a private judge hired by Pitt and Jolie made the decision to award him more custody after months of witness testimony. A different source added that Jolie plans to continue her legal fight, which has been ongoing since they split back in 2016.
“Pitt has always been seeking the opportunity to have more time with his children and prioritized their well-being while the other side did everything to try and stop that,” said a source familiar with the matter. “The decision was based on extensive testimony from people who spent time with the kids and by highly respected professional evaluators.”
The insider went on to say that the judge concluded that Jolie’s testimony “lacked credibility.”
Pitt and Jolie have six children: Maddox, Zahara Marley, Pax, Shiloh, Vivienne, and Knox. While Maddox is no longer part of the custody battle since he is over 18, the other five are still being battled over in court by their parents.
Jolie filed for divorce back in 2016 days after a fight broke out on a private jet flight that their family was taking from France back to Los Angeles. Though Pitt was accused of being abusive to their 15-year-old son on this flight, an investigation by child welfare officials and the FBI found no evidence of this, and he was never charged.
“In response to allegations made following a flight within the special aircraft jurisdiction of the United States which landed in Los Angeles carrying Mr. Brad Pitt and his children, the FBI has conducted a review of the circumstances and will not pursue further investigation. No charges have been filed in this matter,” the FBI said in a statement at the time.
Fox News reported that Jolie claimed in a court filing this week that Judge John Ouderkirk, who she has previously tried to disqualify from the divorce case, declined to hear evidence that she alleges is relevant to the children’s safety before he issued a tentative ruling. She did not elaborate any further on what this evidence may be.
“Judge Ouderkirk denied Ms. Jolie a fair trial, improperly excluding her evidence relevant to the children’s health, safety, and welfare, evidence critical to making her case,” she stated in the filing in California’s Second District Court of Appeal.
