Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt Set Court Date for Child Custody Showdown

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt will meet in court on Dec. 4, to battle over custody of their six children.

Jolie is seeking full custody of the kids, while Pitt wants joint custody. The trial is expected to last two to three weeks, TMZ reported.

The couple split in September 2016, after two years of marriage. Jolie filed for divorce the same month. Pitt and Jolie filed documents requesting a judge give them until June 2019 to solidify the terms of their divorce, TMZ reported.

Jolie was in danger of losing custody of the children because of her poor relationship with Pitt. The court got involved and ordered Jolie to allow Pitt easier access to the kids, People reported.

Jolie also claimed Pitt wasn’t providing child support funds. Pitt’s lawyer countered that claim, citing millions of dollars given to Jolie as a loan, and other funds for the benefit of Jolie and the children, People reported.

Pitt and Jolie’s six kids range in age from 10 to 17. Three were adopted, one each from Cambodia, Ethiopia, and Vietnam, and the three others are the former couple’s biological children, The Sun reported.
