Why do I have a feeling that during Brad Pitt’s first meeting with his divorce lawyer, his lawyer said, “Okay, champ, I just want to make it clear that by ‘joint custody’ we’re not talking about custody of your joints and blunts. I’m sure you’ll get full custody of those in the divorce. We’re talking about the children.” And yes, in my mind, every dude divorce lawyer calls his client “champ.”
It was rumored that Brad Pitt was not going to just let Angelina Jolie have full physical custody of their 6 children. Brad reportedly wants 50/50 physical custody, and isn’t going to settle for “visitation rights.” USA Today says that Brad Pitt has hired big Hollywood divorce lawyer Lance Spiegel to fight for him and go up against Angelina Jolie’s lawyer, the Legal Queen of Hollywood Divorces Laura Wasser. TMZ says that Brad will 100% fight for joint physical custody and sources say that he will argue that he is not a threat to the child army in any way.
Yesterday, I posted about Brad’s side of the alleged private jet fight, as told to People by a “source close to him.” That source said that Brad was drunk, and when he got into a fight of words with St. Angie, one of the older sons stepped in. The older son and Brad screamed at each other, but the source claimed that Brad never hit him. Brad did put his hands on his son, but only because they got nose-to-nose and things were really spiraling into Crazy Town. (Side note: I apologize for putting the poetic lyrics, “Come, my lady, come, come, my lady,” in your head by writing, “Crazy Town.“)
TMZ added to the story told by Brad’s side. Their source said that the son Brad got into it with was 15-year-old Maddox Jolie Pitt. Their source basically said what People’s source said, but they added a few more details. During Brad and Angie’s argument, Maddox jumped in and verbally defended his mom. Brad allegedly lunged at Maddox, which made Angie jump in the middle of them to stop Brad. Brad physically “connected” with Maddox in some way.
TMZ claims that the facts about Brad’s state of drunkenness are drunk themselves. It’s hazy. Two sides (the authorities and sources close to Brad) say he was drunk during the incident and another side (sources close to Angie) claims he was sober but got drunk later. TMZ’s Brad source adds that he has yelled at the kids before, but has never “acted aggressively” until the plane fight happened last week.
Since every single moment that happens on this planet seems to be captured by video, many wondered if there’s video of Brad’s alleged drunken meltdown. UsWeekly says that there is. Sources who claim to have seen the video say that it was shot at the International Falls Airport in Minnesota. The plane stopped there to refuel before going on to Burbank, CA. The video reportedly shows Brad “looking drunk” and yelling. Brad screams a lot but doesn’t get physical. I don’t want to see video of Brad screaming at his family, but I do want to see video of Brad trying to truck-jack that fuel truck. Imagine, you’re a fuel truck driver in Minnesota and as you’re sitting in your cab, eating a lutefisk and snow sandwich while waiting for that private jet to refuel, a drunken Brad Pitt comes up to your window, growls and tries to open the door before falling on the ground and going to sleep.
And if that video leaks (read: Harvey Levin sells his vacation house to buy it for TMZ), Promises Malibu will probably make up their most opulent room, The Lindsay Lohan Suite, before waiting for Brad to inevitably check in.
