Brad Pitt 'granted joint custody of kids' with Angelina Jolie after months-long court trial in nasty divorce

BRAD Pitt and Angelina Jolie have reportedly been awarded joint custody of their five kids.

The decision comes after the Hollywood exes have been duking it out in a nasty custody battle over the last five years.

A source told Page Six: “There was a significant change made in the custody agreements based on an extremely detailed decision made by the judge.

“Brad was just trying to have more time with his kids – and it has been clear that Angie has done everything possible to prevent this.”

The insider added: “This trial lasted for several months and there were a f*** ton of witnesses, experts, therapists and other people who have been with the kids and around them, and the decision was based on this."

Angelina and Brad share six children – five of which are minors – including Maddox, 19, Pax, 17, Zahara, 16, Shiloh, 14 and twins Vivienne and Knox, 12.

On Monday, the Maleficent actress, 45, submitted documents to California's Second District Court of Appeal in a bid to disqualify Judge John Ouderkirk from ruling over the case.

Angelina alleged that Ouderkirk "refused to hear the minor teenagers testify to their wishes in regards to their 'custody fate.'"

She said she's being denied a fair trial in the process.

Her lawyers alleged that the judge "failed to adequately consider… input as to their experiences, needs, or wishes."

The former golden couple of Hollywood split in 2016 after 12 years together, with the Tomb Raider actress citing “irreconcilable differences” on the divorce papers.

It was previously revealed Angelina and Brad, 57, have "each spent $1MILLION" in their bitter five-year divorce battle and custody war over their six kids.
