Brad Pitt Wants 50/50 Custody Agreement with Angelina Jolie (Report)

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt‘s custody trial begins today (October 5) and a source is speaking out about the former couple.

Brad is asking for 50/50 custody to be put in place and stay in place,” a source told ET. “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.”

Brad, for the most part, has been respectful of Angelina‘s parenting. While he doesn’t agree with everything, he knows she loves the kids and wants the best for them. He also knows his love and presence are needed,” the source continued. Apparently, he had “done everything he can to avoid a court situation” but was “left with no other choice.”

“It’s important to Brad that the kids don’t worry about their parent’s current situation and that they don’t feel stuck in the middle in any way,” the source continued. “This is a challenge because of their age, but he’s doing what he can.”

Brad has avoided this court scenario for years, and the last thing he would ever want is for this to have a negative outcome for everyone,” the source added. “This is about getting his time with the children.”

Meanwhile, an Angelina source added, “No one wants this case over more than Angelina.”

There was a bombshell report last week about who Brad was calling as a witness in the trial.
