Jolie and Pitt, who filed for divorce in 2016, share six children together: Maddox, 19, Pax, 17, Zahara, 16, Shiloh, 14, and twins, Vivienne and Knox, 12.

“She will never forgive him,” the source spilled, noting Jolie plans to appeal the arrangement. “She maintains it’s far from over and still believes that justice will prevail,” the source continued.

In August 2020, Jolie attempted to remove Ouderkirk from the case entirely,  alleging that the judge failed to disclose “ongoing business and professional relationships” with Pitt.

"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," according to the court documents Jolie filed on May 24.

Jolie separated from the Moneyball actor in 2016 after an alleged incident occurred on a private flight with their children, where Pitt was accused of being "verbally abusive" and "getting physical" with their son Maddox.

While Pitt was cleared of child abuse allegations by the Los Angeles Country Department of Children and Family Servies in 2016, as the investigation concluded that there was "not inappropriate contact" between Pitt and Maddox. However, Jolie filed documents in March of this year claiming that she was willing to testify and provide evidence in support of the abuse allegations.

OK! previously reported that Maddox gave testimony in the ongoing legal battle that "wasn’t very flattering toward Brad," and Pitt was reportedly "heartbroken" by the abuse allegations.

The current ruling of joint custody, which was made on May 13, is only tentative, and Pitt is allegedly aware that the Maleficent star will attempt to appeal the decision.
