Kids’ custody drama stretches after Pitt files for review of the verdict
Once upon a time, we were smitten by Pitt and Jolie’s romantic relationship. However, things took a sharp turn and they publically split when Jolie accused him of abusing one of their children.
Pitt and Jolie: From being the enchanting couple to the fighting couple
The two came close while filming ‘Mr. & Mrs. Smith’ in 2004. After 10 years of dating and living together, they decided to marry in 2014. Sadly, their marriage hit a rough patch and ended in mere five years. The celebrity couple shares six kids, Knox, Zahara, Shiloh, Vivienne, Maddox, and Pax, out of whom five are minors.
Private judge: The point of argument
Recently, ‘Once Upon A Time’ actor’s attorneys have lodged a petition with the California Supreme Court a month after the court ruling of removing John Ouderkirk, the private judge from the case.
Pitt’s lawyer, J. Boutrous Jr. told “Hollywood Life” that the verdict is unfair and said, “We are seeking review in the California Supreme Court because the temporary judge, who had been appointed and repeatedly renewed by both sides, was improperly disqualified after providing a detailed, fact-based custodial decision, following a lengthy legal process with multiple witnesses and experts”.
It doesn’t seem like Pitt and Jolie’s battle for the custody of their five kids will settle in the coming days. The new twist has been added by Pitt in the long-lasting drama. Jolie’s lawyer attacked the review petition by Pitt, saying Brad is “clinging to this private judge who exhibited bias and refused statutorily required evidence”.
