Brad Pitt Reportedly Concerned Custody Battle Will 'Damage' Kids

As Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie head to trial for custody of their children, sources close to the actor say he's concerned about the fallout.

Their trial kicks off in early December according to documents CNN has obtained, where Jolie and Pitt will fight for the custody of their six children.

According to multiple reports, a source close to the Oceans 11 actor has said he's concerned the difficult trial could have longterm effects on his kids.

Pitt and Jolie married in 2014, but  announced their divorce in September 2016 citing irreconcilable differences. While they had only been married for two years, the pair had been together for 12.

Following two more years of attempting to come to an agreed arrangement for custody -- Jolie wants full custody while Pitt wants joint -- the pair will finally head to court, assuming they don't reach an agreement before their December 4 date.

While Pitt's fears that the ongoing court battle could damage their kids, that hasn't stopped the last two years of leaks to the media.

A lot of those leaks were around a now infamous plane trip where Pitt reportedly got into a physical altercation with his oldest son Maddox, leading to an anonymous call to Child Services.

Pitt denied claims he physically abused the then 15-year-old, and while he was investigated and later cleared by the FBI, the damage to his reputation was done.

Jolie meanwhile was warned by a judge that if she didn't allow her children to foster a relationship with their father she could potentially lose custody. She fired back with accusations he wasn't paying "meaningful" child support for the last year and a half. Pitt's team retaliated, providing court documents receipts for a $8 million loan he gave Jolie for her current home as well as $1.3 million in bills.

The messy battling looks to continue as the pair head toward court.
