Brad Pitt wins 50-50 joint custody of kids in legal battle with Angelina Jolie


Hollywood actor Brad Pitt has won a tentative ruling granting him 50-50 physical and legal custody of his five minor children with Angelina Jolie after an extensive — and contentious — five-year legal battle.

A private judge hired by the couple issued the tentative decision May 13, with the new “modified” arrangement expected to take effect soon, sources confirmed to the Daily News.

“The most important and only reason this went so far is that he loves and adores his children, and (he) is very happy with the outcome,” one source said. “‘Relieved’ is an understatement.”

The new ruling from Judge John Ouderkirk applies only to Pax, 17, Zahara, 16, Shiloh, 14, and 12-year-old twins, Vivienne and Knox. It does not affect the couple’s oldest son, Maddox, who is now 19.
