Brad Pitt secured joint custody of his children with Angelina Jolie following a lengthy court battle. Jolie filed for divorce in 2016 and the couple have since been engaged in a no-holds-barred legal battle for custody of the Minorren children Pax, 17, Zahara, 16, Shiloh, 14, and twins Vivienne and Knox. 12 years old. The older Maddox, 19, is naturally excluded from the custody decision. The joint custody – according to the US press – would in any case be provisional and it is likely that Angelina Jolie will appeal.
