Angelina Jolie got married to her Mr & Mrs Smith co-star Brad Pitt in 2014. However, much to everyone's disappointment, the couple parted ways in 2016 after two years of marriage and officially got divorced in 2019. Amidst all this, Angelina Jolie who thought the judge was biased and failed to disclose some important details in the case has now lost the battle to remove Brad Pitt's friends and judge from the divorce case. According to a report in Us Weekly, Angelina failed to remove Judge John W. Ouderkirk from her and Brad Pitt's ongoing divorce. As per the court documents obtained by the portal, 'the case is “assigned to Honorable Judge W. Ouderkirk (Ret.) for all purposes.”
A source later confirmed that Ouderkirk will be presiding over the case." Previously, Jolie had asked Ouderkirk to step down from the case, alleging in August that the judge failed to disclose “ongoing business and professional relationships” with her ex-husband’s legal team. But the Fight Club asserted that there's well-documented history between Ouderkirk and him. Nevertheless, John then proved that there's no form of bias in the case.
Meanwhile, it is also reported that Brangelina’s divorce can only be finalised once they both agree on the custody of their kids. As per the report, a source revealed that Brad Pitt is asking for 50/50 custody. The source said, “Brad is asking for 50/50 custody to be put in place and stay in place. Angelina wants to be fair when it comes to custody. She is very structured with the children. Brad has high hopes [they can] try to make it work because of the importance of co-parenting."
Reportedly, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's trial began on October 5 and is said to go on till October 23. The couple shares six kids – Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh and twins Knox and Vivienne. Currently, the Once Upon A Time In Hollywood actor is now dating German model Nicole Poturalski.
