Angelina Jolie reportedly plans to continue to fight for custody of her kids amid her divorce from Brad Pitt, according to TMZ.
On Friday, Pitt filed legal documents reportedly seeking joint custody of his six children with Jolie ― Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Vivienne and Knox. According to sources who spoke to TMZ, the “Salt” actress is ready to fight for custody “until he gets his s**t together.” The sources claim Jolie only wants to give Pitt monitored visitation.
TMZ also reports that Jolie would like to repair the family’s relationship so she and her estranged husband can get back to a “normal” parenting routine. Until then, TMZ notes, Jolie will fight for sole custody as she reportedly believes Pitt has anger issues and problems with substance abuse.
The Huffington Post has reached out to representatives for both Jolie and Pitt for comment and will update this post accordingly.
The former couple’s children have been a huge focus in their divorce negotiations after an alleged altercation took place between Pitt and his eldest son with Jolie, Maddox. According to reports, the alleged incident of child abuse took place while the family was traveling on their private plane.
Pitt has denied abusive behavior toward his children, but the alleged altercation is currently under investigation by the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services. The investigation was reportedly expanded to look at multiple alleged incidents with some of the other kids and Jolie herself.
Earlier this month, Jolie and her kids were also reportedly interviewed by the FBI in regards to the alleged plane incident. Sources told TMZ that FBI agents were there to determine whether or not there was enough evidence to support the claims against Pitt to warrant a full investigation.
Jolie filed for divorce in September, citing irreconcilable differences. In her filing, she requested sole physical custody of the couple’s children. By the end of September, Jolie was reportedly granted full custody for a temporary three-week period, while Pitt was granted temporary visitation rights.
Sources close to Pitt told TMZ that the custody agreement relies heavily on the DCFS’ conclusion. The sources believe the agency will deem Pitt fit to parent.
