Brad and Angelina gear up for bitter custody battle


Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie set for Christmas courtroom showdown: Bitter custody battle over their six kids comes to a head – and judge will also rule on property carve-up because they had NO prenup

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are heading to trial next month for a courtroom showdown in their bitter custody battle.

The two Hollywood stars are set to duke it out in court, according to TMZ Monday, with December 4 set as the date for the start of a custody trial.

They were reported to have reached an interim custody agreement regarding their six children in late summer.

But negotiations appear to have broken down, and next month, the couple will ask a judge to rule on the custody battle over their six children, as well as their shared property, after it was revealed they had no prenup.
Custody battle: The proceedings, overseen by a private judge, will take place behind closed doors. The exes share Maddox, 17, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, and 10-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne (pictured in 2011)
