The custody battle between ex-spouses Brad Pitt, 57, and Angelina Jolie, 46, is now before the California Supreme Court. Pete has filed an application with the California Supreme Court to challenge an earlier ruling in the protracted court battle, as Fox News and USA Today reported on Thursday, citing court documents.
Jolie won in July when an appeals court granted her request to impeach Special Judge John Oderkerk. Oderkirk had violated his “moral obligations,” the court’s decision was quoted by US media at the time. There will be doubts about the judge’s own impartiality. He did not disclose other working relationships to Pete’s attorney. Ouderkirk had previously agreed to extend custody rights to Pitt — and upset Julie.
In the long-running dispute over custody of the ex-couple’s six biological and adopted children, Jolie and Pitt turned on the private judge together four years ago. Pitt’s lawyers are now protesting Ouderkirk’s removal from office, as this would also overturn a previous custody decision in Pitt’s favour. Pete Tudor attorney J. USA Today With.
After a long relationship, the actors married in 2014. Two years later, Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt, which became official in 2019. She claimed custody of the six children, who are now between 13 and 20 years old. Since then, negotiations have continued in court over the division of custody and funds. At twenty, eldest son Maddox is no longer a part of the suit.
