TMZ reports that, sources close to Brad said that Angelina won’t be able take his kids away from him.
Yesterday the news that Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt exploded all over the Internet and especially the fact that she wants sole physical custody of the children … she wants a judge to give him visitation, but that’s it. Obviously Brad is NOT ok with it and he’s ready to fight for his kids.
Sources to TMZ confirm that Brad said: “There’s no chance that’s going to happen.” Pitt wants joint custody. He won’t interfere with Angelina’s ability to be a co-parent, but he won’t allow her to thwart him. This is a sign that the whole thing might become a fierce legal battle between the two stars.
He also added that Angie is “great mother” and doesn’t want to hurt her in this hard time. TMZ writes that Brad and Angelina haven’t gotten along for months now and have had talks about divorce several times already, so this wasn’t a shock. But he’s still devastated, by the demise of his 12-year relationship.
Angelina claims that Brad was drinking and smoking weed, has serious anger problem and has put the kids in danger. Brad sources, according to TMZ, insist that he’s never put his kids in danger.
In a statement, Pitt said: “I am very saddened by this, but what matters most now is the wellbeing of our kids. I kindly ask the press to give them the space they deserve during this challenging time.”
Angelina’s longtime manager Geyer Kosinki told E! News: “Angelina is doing what’s best in the interest of taking care of her children. She appreciates everyone’s understanding of their need for privacy at this time.”
