Angelina Jolie Pitt says she wants her divorce from Brad Pitt finalised before the end of the year.

In court documents obtained by The Blast, the judge explained that "not having a relationship with their father is harmful to [the children]", and added that "it is critical that each of them have a healthy and strong relationship with their father and mother". They have six children for whom she is seeking primary custody. Jolie has sought sole custody of the children. Their eldest son Maddox was adopted from Cambodia in 2002.

Meanwhile, another source told HollywoodLife that Jolie keeps "changing the rules" despite Pitt doing his best to be responsible for his family.

Pitt and Jolie also have three children together, biologically: their daughter Shiloh was born in 2006, and their twins Knox and Vivienne were born in 2008.

People close to Pitt think that Jolie pre-emptively filed the papers as a warning shot, because Pitt had told her he wanted to restart the formal divorce process.
