Angelina filed for a divorce in 2016, only two years after marriage, citing 'irreconcilable differences' from husband Brad Pitt. A few days ago, she filed documents in court accusing Brad Pitt of domestic abuse during their marriage. The trial is expected to end next month, and the custody details finalized as well. Brad is fighting for 50-50 legal and physical custody of their children. According to Page Six, it is revealed that the children are being interviewed by court-appointed therapists for the proceedings. 

According to The Blast, there is also a separate testimony from their children. Brad and Angelina will have to give permission for their three minor kids to appear in court. The other three are of legal age and don't necessarily need parental consent. A source close to Brad has revealed to Page Six that he is 'heartbroken' over the allegations. The source further revealed that Brad feels more and more distant from his children following his separation from Angelina.
