Dallas attorney and private investigator Wes Bearden says actors Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt will need some particularly creative evidence if they decide to fight for custody of their six children. Ms. Jolie reportedly cited irreconcilable differences in a court filing yesterday that seeks to end the couple’s two-year marriage. The actress is requesting sole physical custody and joint legal custody of their six children, giving Mr. Pitt visitation rights. Mr. Bearden, founder of the Bearden Investigative Agency, says one of the more intriguing parts of the superstar divorce can be found in the unique lifestyles of the couple’s children, including the role their parents play in their less-than-traditional upbringing.
Since both Jolie and Pitt are involved in the movie business and face many of the same time-away-from-home issues, they could arrange a 50/50 agreement,” says Mr. Bearden. “But if they decide to wage a custody fight, then they will both have to come up with some pretty compelling arguments for why one would be a better custodial parent than the other. These are two of the most famous actors in the world who are consistently on movie sets and probably not taking care of their children all the time. More issues will develop as this case moves along in terms of not only who will be taking care of the kids, but where they will live and where they go to school.
