In case you missed it, the court has recently granted Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie the interim joint custody of their children Zahara (16), Pax (17), and twelve-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox following a contentious custody fight that lasted months.
To add to this, the court ruled that the ‘Once Upon A Time In Hollywood’ actor will share no custody over his 19-year-old son Madoxx as he’s no longer a minor.
The court decision has left Angelina “bitterly disappointed” After her former husband, Brad Pitt, had been handed joint custody, to which she said that “she’ll never forgive him.”
Brad and Jolie announced their engagement in 2012 and tied the knot in 2014. According to the source, the couple has been in and out of the courtroom following their split in September 2016.
Meanwhile, an insider told Entertainment Tonight that all Pitt ever sought was his kids’ shared custody, and he’s happy that Judge John Ouderkirk has ruled in his favor, and he can’t wait to spend time with his children.
Angelina had allegedly sought to overrule Judge Ouderkirk’s judgment this week. Yet, the World War Z star revealed he intends to see this through and has blasted his ex-wife in a statement from his legal advisers.
Angelina made an appeal to judge Ouderkirk to dismiss the case and has also asked for a brief halt to the case hearings while she pursues other legal actions.
Brad criticized the plan by saying her antics won’t do his children well.
In the statement from his attorneys, Brad stated that “Any delay would only work grave harm upon the children, who will be further denied permanence and stability.”
During an interview with British, Vogue Angelina voiced her pain by saying, “The past few years have been pretty hard. I’ve been focusing on healing our family. It’s slowly coming back, like the ice melting and the blood returning to my body. I’m not there yet. But I hope to be. I’m planning on it.”
The United Nations special emissary tried to pull Judge John Ouderkirk from the case in August 2020, arguing that he failed to disclose his professional relationships and business contacts with Brad and his lawyers.
In May, she asserted that John Ouderkirk had not allowed kids to testify.
The actress’s team argued in case documents filed on May 24 that Judge Ouderkirk has denied them a fair trial and has unfairly omitted the evidence relating to children’s welfare, safety, and health.
Since the current verdict is temporary, the actor knows that her former spouse would attempt to challenge the ruling, but expresses that he’s done letting her take control, and would only welcome her if she wishes to be civil in her ways.
