Brad Pitt visits ex Angelina Jolie’s home as he's 'desperate for the ugliness to end' in nasty custody battle over kids

BRAD Pitt has been meeting face-to-face with Angelina Jolie in a last-ditch bid to patch up their differences, The Sun can reveal.

The warring exes – who have been at each other’s throats since their divorce in 2016 – are facing a bitter holiday period while continuing to fight over custody of their six kids.

Last month their feud heated up as Brad, 56, and Angelina, 45, each called upon witnesses to be cross-examined before a private judge.

But last week, the actor was spotted visiting his ex-wife’s LA home, where she lives with their six kids: Maddox, 19, Pax, 16, Zahara, 15, Shiloh, 14, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 12.

It came as news emerged the Oscar winner has split with married German model Nicole Poturalski, 27, following a whirlwind three-month fling.

An insider revealed: “Brad drove into the estate in the afternoon – he was hard to miss in his white Tesla sports car.

“He stayed for around an hour-and-a-half and then he sped away from a private exit he doesn’t normally use. He was clearly doing all he could to avoid being seen."

As The Sun previously reported, Brad had been making trips to the ritzy Los Feliz compound for much of lockdown – before his battle with Angelina hit a roadblock.

An insider says: “He’s still desperate for all the ugliness to end, even though it’s like pulling teeth seeing eye to eye with Angelina about virtually anything these days.

“Brad’s big concern in all this is making some sort of peace, for the kids’ sakes as well as his and Angelina’s.

“This ugliness has gone on way too long and it’s his greatest wish for them to resolve as much as possible outside of the courtroom.

“Whatever gets decided by the judge, they’ll be co-raising the kids for the rest of their lives.

“He’s willing to be the bigger person, and it’s a positive sign that he’s spending time with Angie again, for sure.”

It comes after The Sun revealed how Brad is pulling out all the stops as he comes head to head with his estranged wife in what is expected to be one of the most expensive custody battles in Hollywood history.

The Fight Club star has called on 21 witnesses to give evidence in the case, which is taking place behind closed doors via Zoom.

Angelina meanwhile is calling seven witnesses to give evidence.

Brad’s witnesses include Jillian Armenante, who co-starred with his estranged wife in 1999 film Girl, Interrupted, for which Angelina won an Oscar as Best Supporting Actress.

He will also be calling Dr Stan Katz, a psychologist who testified at Michael Jackson’s child molestation trial, trauma expert Bren Chasse, security company boss William Thiel, Dr Fred Luskin, an expert in “forgiveness therapy”,

A source said: “In Brad’s case the list is longer because he feels he has to cite as many anecdotes as possible from credible characters who can vouch for his parenting skills, as well as the kids’ needs.

“And with Angelina currently having the bulk of time with the children, there’s a view that he’s got to convince the judge to change the current situation.

“He wants a straight 50 per cent of custody, with visitation dates and overnight stays set in stone.”

The Sun reached out to representatives for Brad and Angelina for comment.
