Brad Pitt scored a major, major win in court after a judge awarded him and ex Angelina Jolie 50/50 joint legal and physical custody of their five minor children.
The Oscar-winning actor "is over the moon," a source told TMZ, which reported the news on May 26.
The ruling is a bit of a knockout blow for the actress, as she was asking for sole custody of the kids. She also wanted Brad to only have supervised visits, arguing that he was not a suitable parent. According to TMZ, the judge felt Angie's argument "lacked credibility."
Throughout the course of the custody battle, several witnesses from all walks of life testified and lauded Brad and his love for his children.
Although the ruling is "tentative," it's widely expected that the decision will become concrete.
Just one day before the ruling, Angie criticized the judge for refusing to let the children testify.
"Judge Ouderkirk denied Ms. Jolie a fair trial, improperly excluding her evidence relevant to the children's health, safety, and welfare, evidence critical to making her case," a court filing said, but didn't elaborate on the alleged "evidence."
Brad and Angie split in 2016 after he had a confrontation with Maddox, then 15, while aboard a private plane. No charges were filed following an investigation from child welfare officials. For some time, he was estranged from his children, but those relationships have largely been repaired.
Brad and Angelina share six children: Maddox, 19, Pax, 17, Zahara, 16, Shiloh, 14 and 12-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox. Since Maddox is a legal adult, he's not subject to the ruling.
