The actor files a response in order to see his six children more.

Brad Pitt has responded to Angelina Jolie’s divorce filing, fighting his soon-to-be ex wife for joint custody of the couple’s six children.

Angelina filed for divorce from the 52-year-old actor in September after an alleged incident on a private plane between him and their 15-year-old son Maddox.

The Maleficent star also filed for sole custody of their children, only allowing Brad visitation rights. The couple are also parents to Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and 8-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.

According to the New York Post, Brad, who has strongly denied any allegations of child abuse against his eldest child, filed legal paperwork on Friday asking for joint physical and legal custody, meaning the war between Hollywood’s former golden couple is set to continue and possibly heat up!

“There has been a lot of damaging information leaked about Brad from Jolie’s camp, but in the past month, things have quietened down,” a source told the publication.

“Now he is challenging Jolie and asking for joint custody of the kids, there is an expectation that there will be more attacks from her camp.”

Brad and Angelina had been together for 12 years and married for two after meeting on the set of Mr. & Mrs. Smith in 2004.

The FBI have previously spoken to the 41-year-old actress in relation to the alleged altercation between Brad and Maddox to determine whether there is enough evidence to warrant an official investigation into the matter.

“The agents wanted a breakdown of everything that happened from when the plane took off to when it landed,” a source told Us Weekly last month.

“They’re looking into charges of assault.”

Despite the investigation it’s since been claimed that Angelina doesn’t want Brad to be prosecute, with TMZ reporting she threatened to go “radio silent” if the Fury star is charged.

Last month it was revealed that Brad had been reunited with his kids for the first time since Angelina filed for divorced, including Maddox.
