Despite filing for divorce three years ago, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt‘s separation has been a messy one, with the couple finally announced to be single this year after choosing to ‘bifurcate’ their marriage.
The move allows both parties to have a ‘single’ status while continuing with divorce proceedings, rather than remain to be legally bound as they have been these past three years.
It was the custody of their children however that has made the most news.
While Angelina Jolie currently looks after the children, it has been reported that Brad will eventually get 50-50 joint custody and it is thought that their six children will keep their hyphenated last names.
It emerged this week how the former couple were sharing the custody of their children over summer – and it sounds pretty complicated.
