In celebrity news, the custody battle between Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie is getting contentious. A source told that amid the celebrity divorce, Pitt is “very angry” with Jolie for being “controlling of their children” and will “do anything to see his kids and have them in his life.” Court documents show that the judge said “it is critical each of [the Jolie-Pitt children] have a healthy and strong relationship with their father and mother” and that it is “harmful” for Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Knox and Vivienne to not have a relationship with their father. The papers also state that if Jolie does not allow the children to build relationships with Pitt, she could lose full custody of them. An insider said “Brad has taken the high road through all of this; he could have gone to court much sooner to ask the judge to intervene. He was done being Mr. Nice Guy and rolled the dice.” After the custody agreement leaked, Jolie released a statement through her spokesperson on June 13 saying, “This misleading leak is not in the best interests of the children. From the start, Angelina has been focused only on their health and needs, which is why it was so important that this last court hearing be conducted privately.”
