Brad Pitt Wins Joint Custody of Children With Angelina Jolie | 22 Words

It has been confirmed that Brad Pitt has won joint custody of his children with ex-wife Angelina Jolie.

Here's the full - and very eventful - story...

Now, Hollywood icons Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie first met on the set of Mr & Mrs. Smith in 2005...


And although Brad was married to Jennifer Aniston at the time, the pair hit it off from the get-go and it didn't take long for things to become official... and serious.

After a long and serious relationship, they tied the knot in 2014...


And quickly amassed a huge brood of children - some through adoption and some through birth.

Although the pair both adopted their kids ...


Angelina adopted them first - which has led some to suspect that the relationship may have been a little more strained than it seemed.

In 2016, Brangelina broke the world's heart by announcing their separation and divorce.


And though the couple remained fairly private, it's clear there was a lot of ill-feeling between the pair.

Some even believe that the kids were part of the couple's issues.


Many think that Brad never wanted to be a father to such a large brood, but went along with it because of his love for Angelina.

And now, it seems like the kids are stuck in the middle.


And they've remained pretty tight-lipped about the goings-on in the divorce.

Divorce is never easy on the kids...

But Brad and Angelina are trying their best to co-parent.

And in spite of some dramas, the family seemed to be working through it.


Until now, that is.
