Pitt’s request to seal custody document denied

Los Angeles, Dec 10 (IANS) Actor Brad Pitts emergency request to seal custody documents related to his divorce from Angelina Jolie was denied by a judge at a hearing in Los Angeles Superior Court on Wednesday.

However, the actor is continuing his push to keep the custody fight private, and a hearing on whether to seal the entire case has been set for January 17, 2017, a Pitt source told usmagazine.com

On Wednesday, the actor sought to make custody details relating to their six children private, after Jolie’s lawyer filed paperwork outling the pair’s temporary, voluntary arrangement with the court this week.

Pitt, 52, is seeking joint physical custody of their children, Maddox, 15, Pax, 13, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 8, who are living with Jolie in Los Angeles.

A source close to Jolie explains that the actress, 41, wanted their parenting agreement on the legal record because Pitt allegedly strayed from the terms in multiple ways: by trying to increase the number of visits with the children, attempting to change the location of visits and seeking to include another therapist in the process.

Jolie wants Pitt to “heal the relationship with the children,” but within the recommendations established by therapists and previously agreed to by both stars, the source adds.
