Brad Pitt bids to keep custody battle private

BANG Showbiz

BRAD Pitt is set to go to court in a bid to keep his custody battle with Angelina Jolie private.

The 52-year-old actor split from the Oscar-winning actress earlier this year, and is now poised to fight for custody of their six adopted children.

The 'Fury' actor has requested an emergency hearing and Brad intends to ask the judge to seal all documents related to his and Angelina's custody battle, according to the gossip website TMZ.

Angelina - who has children Vivienne, eight, Knox, eight, Shiloh, 10, Zahara, 11, Pax, 13, and Maddox, 15, with her estranged husband - reportedly filed the documents because she was worried Brad was trying to change their temporary agreement.

The 'Maleficent' star was said to be concerned that Brad would seek to have un-monitored visits with the children, and Angelina is also reported to have consulted with her therapist on the matter, who said it's too early to sanction such a scenario.

However, Angelina is open to Brad having solo visits provided it is signed off by the therapist.

But Brad is said to view the situation very differently, with sources close to the Hollywood star claiming Angelina has exposed their children to unnecessary stress.

The actor is also baffled by his estranged wife's decision to file for a private agreement, only to subsequently make it public and cause further strife to their young children.

Brad never had any intention of making their private agreement known to the public, according to TMZ, which says he thinks Angelina's recent behaviour is proof she is a bad parent.

The emergency meeting has been scheduled for today (07.12.16) and will afford Brad the opportunity to make his point.
