Brad Pitt Sole Custody

(In Touch)

Brad Pitt is NOT seeking sole custody of his kids, despite a tabloid cover story falsely claiming he plans to “take” the children from Angelina Jolie. Gossip Cop can correct the report.

“Brad Takes The Kids,” screams the cover of this week’s In Touch, which further touts a “shocking twist in custody battle.” Inside the issue it’s claimed, “Brad will be fighting back against Angie in court. He will go for sole physical custody.”

The magazine alleges Pitt has “quietly been hiring high-powered experts whose names haven’t been made public yet,” and he’s “ready to fight and win” the custody battle. “Brad has compiled a dossier on Angelina of the serious mental health issues she has dealt with over the years,” a so-called “insider” claims to the outlet, which alleges “Brad’s file contains bombshell material.”

And while In Touch never actually says what that “material” is, the publication still insists, “Brad can destroy Angelina in court with the file he’s compiled on her.” The supposed source also declares, “Brad’s taking the kids and it’s Angie’s worst nightmare.” Adds the alleged tipster, “He’ll go after Angelina and expose her psychological demons, show how she puts the children in dangerous situations when she visits war-torn countries and more.”

Despite the tabloid already touting this as a “huge victory in his brutal divorce and custody battle,” the claims aren’t true. Gossip Cop debunked last week’s similar In Touch cover story that falsely alleged Pitt was going to get “revenge” on Jolie in court. He’s not.

The actor’s interest, as it has been all along, is in obtaining joint custody of the children. He has no intention of dragging Jolie through the mud, and will NOT be seeking sole custody. This new cover story claiming otherwise is simply false.
