According to new reports, Brad Pitt has won joint custody of his children with Angelina Jolie after the actress’s request for the little ones to testify was rejected. Fans know the two Hollywood stars have been engaged in a legal war since their divorce in 2016, but it looks like the 5-year lawsuit may have just ended. Or is it?
As previously mentioned, this comes after Jolie said in a filing that the judge hearing their case prevented the children from testifying in court, which she claimed was “ unfair. ”

She stressed that it was ‘wrongly ruled out’ [Angelina’s] evidence relevant to the health, safety and welfare of the children, evidence crucial to her cause. ‘
Apparently, Judge John Ouderkirk has ruled in favor of Brad Pitt, significantly increasing his time with his descendants.
The ruling was reportedly based on many testimonials from therapists and childcare professionals, as well as other people who spent a lot of time with the five underage children.

You probably remember that the divorce took place 5 years ago when Angelina accused Brad of child abuse.
According to her, he hit their son, Maddox, who was only 15 at the time, while on a private jet.
That said, she argued at the time that she decided to end the marriage because of “ the health of the family. ”
Now, however, a source tells HollywoodLife that ‘Brad’s only goal is to be able to see his children. His priority is what’s best for them and spending more time with them. Angelina’s priority is to avoid spending time with Brad. ‘
Due to the involvement of young people, the details of their lawsuit have been largely kept secret for the past 5 years.
But if you thought that the legal battle was over after this ruling, you would be wrong.
After all, in her complaint against Judge Ouderkirk, Angelina promised to appeal if Brad was given joint custody!
