UPDATE: Brad Pitt Asks For Joint Custody

November 7, 2016
Actor Brad Pitt is asking a judge to grant him joint custody of his six children in his split from Angelina Jolie, according to divorce papers that were filed Friday. This filing was his response to Jolie Pitt's Sept. 20th petition to end their two-year marriage.

The AP has been following the celebrity break up paperwork and notes that Jolie sought sole physical custody of their six children, after Pitt allegedly got drunk on a plane and was abusive towards their 15 year old Maddox in September.

Brad Pitt has not publicly commented on the request but reports say courts in California generally favor awarding joint custody.
