Just yesterday, the world became utterly shocked when it was reported that Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from her husband Brad Pitt. Memes were created and everyone was left in awe over the news of their separation. Angelina came out swinging against Brad, claiming that he had substance abuse issues and didn’t care for the way he parented their six children. Now, he’s hitting back – saying that he won’t stand for having just visitation while she takes physical custody of their brood.
TMZ reports that their Brad sources have claimed that there is no way he would be on board with her getting sole physical custody of the kids. A spy revealed, “There’s no chance that’s going to happen.”
Reportedly, the actor wants joint custody of the couple’s children. Despite that, he has no intentions on interfering with Angelina’s co-parenting ability, but he won’t allow her to keep the kids from him. This is very likely going to blow up into World War 3 as the two fire back and forth at one another during the divorce and custody battle. It already has the potential to be a long battle over their finances because of their property splits and custody issues, but her asking for physical custody of the children is likely to be the first blow in a long series of arguments.
Sources close to Brad say that divorce had become a topic of conversation in recent months, so he isn’t exactly as shocked as the rest of us were when the news broke. Brad and Angelina have not gotten along with one another in months, so they brought up the topic of divorce as a solution to their turmoil.
Another source close to the couple said that the duo seemed happy during their last family outings together, so we’re not sure what to believe.
On July 4, they were spotted at a local supermarket shopping for a BBQ grill before their holiday festivities.
“Brad and Angie were great. They seemed very happy and chatty,” an onlooker tells PEOPLE, adding that their children Shiloh, Knox and Vivienne tagged along. “They had a disagreement and Brad lectured them on how to behave in public. Brad often comes in with his kids and seems like a great dad.”
Less than a week later, the duo made a stop inside a Jamba Juice with their daughter Shiloh, where a source tells PEOPLE “they were very cuddly.”
“Brad kept hugging Angie from behind. It was on the earlier side, so it was obvious that they were having a good morning,” adds the source. “They looked very happy. They were both very polite and sweet.”
