Two years after Angelina Jolie initiated the process of her divorce from Brad Pitt, the famous couple known as ‘Brangelina’ is still involved in a contentious legal process .
After almost 12 years of relationship, the actors have not been able to reach an agreement on the custody of their six children : Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh and the twins Vivienne and Knox.
According to reports from various media, Angelina Jolie is “furious” because she wants to take the children to London, where she will film ‘Maleficent 2’, but no agreement has been reached in court.
“They are deciphering how it would work (custody), but she (Angelina) is not happy, ” a source told The New York Post.
According to Us Magazine, Angelina has put up “resistance to a custody agreement because she resents that Brad Pitt forced her to settle in Los Angeles” with the children so that they are close to both of them.
While Angelina Jolie wants to take the children to London, Brad Pitt put together his work schedule this summer around his six children. The actor chose to stay in Los Angeles, California, filming the movie ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ to spend time with the kids, according to Us Magazine.
Although the process to elucidate the custody of the couple’s six children has been delayed, at least the actors have agreed to negotiate. It was not always like that.
In the divorce suit filed by Angelina on September 19, 2016, the protagonist of ‘Lara Croft’ claimed that she separated from Brad “for the well-being of the children.”
After the divorce lawsuit, it transpired a confusing incident where Brad Pitt allegedly assaulted his eldest son Maddox aboard a private plane on his return from a trip to Europe. The authorities investigated , but found no evidence to support the allegation.
Last year, Brad talked about divorce. He recognized that work kept him away from his children and that after the separation he had begun a process of introspection. Who left the drink and who sought psychological help, according to GQ magazine.
In that balance of priorities, Brad settled in Los Angeles to participate in the process of raising their children.
Since he began the relationship with Angelina, Brad was interested in having a family. Before the birth of Shiloh in 2006, the first biological daughter of the couple, gave his last name to Maddox and Zahara , the two children that his then companion had adopted. In 2008, he also adopted Pax.
Angelina and Brad procreated Shiloh (12 years old), and the twins Vivienne and Knox (9). His adopted children are Maddox (16), Pax (14) and Zahara (13).
Given the differences between the actors, it remains to be seen where the children will spend the summer (in Los Angeles or London) and how this story of love and indifference from one of Hollywood’s most beloved couples will finally end.
