After four years since one of Hollywood's hottest couples separated, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are reportedly once again embroiled in a legal battle, this time because the actress wants to take their children to live abroad: "He's left with no other option but to dig in and fight back hard," revealed a source close to the actor to US Weekly.

"Unfortunately, the individuals hurt most by Jolie’s transparently tactical gambit are the parties’ own children, who continue to be deprived of a final resolution to these custody issues," said one of Pitt's lawyers.

The trial to agree to the custody of the children will take place in October, although the legal situation is not decided, Angelina Jolie made it clear that she wants to move with her children to Richmond, a town in south London.

On one occasion, Angelina Jolie had openly declared that she would like to live abroad with her children, but that for the moment she had to take into account where their father lives.

The couple's legal battles

The couple had a 12-year relationship and when they were married for two years the actress from Salt filed for divorce on the grounds of violence by Pitt towards one of their children, alleging "irreconcilable differences."

By April 2019, Angelina and Brad were officially single again, but in terms of custody of their children: Maddox, 19; Pax, 16 years old; Zahara, 15; Shiloh, 14; and twins Knox and Vivienne, 12, that is an agreement that has yet to be resolved.

Angelina Jolie argues, in one of her many allegations, that the actor from Troy has a problem with alcohol. 

A few months ago, the actress from The Tourist revealed in an interview for Vogue India that her separation with Pitt was rather "for the welfare of her family." For her it is still the right decision and that despite the lies that the media handles, she will always remind her children of the truth.
