BRAD Pitt apparently 'wants Angelina Jolie's co-star Jillian Armenante to testify in their custody trial.'
The couple's bad blood continues as the trial, which is supposed to begin this month, will determine how much time each part will receive with their six children.
According to Us Weekly Brad Pitt filed his witness list last week for the upcoming custody trial, which is expected to be held October 5 to October 23.
They share Pax, 16, Zahara, 15, Shiloh, 14, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 12, while 19-year-old Maddox is free to go with either parent.
The Academy Award-winning actor reportedly wants Angelina's Girl, Interrupted costar, Jillian Armenante, to testify.
Along with staring with Angelina in the 2000 film, she worked with the Academy Award-winner in 2007's A Mighty Heart.
Jillian's other TV roles include Judging Amy, Fresh Off the Boat, Grey’s Anatomy, Hawthorne, Desperate Housewives, Vice and The Mayor.
A source exclusively told Us Weekly earlier this month: “Tensions have escalated between Brad and Angelina, with family therapy no longer taking place.
The insider went on: “Brad wants 50/50 joint physical and legal custody of the kids. Angelina has been unagreeable to those terms.
“[She] will only agree to talk about an agreement if the home base for the children isn’t Los Angeles. The younger kids are in school in Los Angeles, which Angelina has always been opposed to.
"They are very smart and are eager to attend school in person [amid the COVID-19 pandemic].”
Another source vouged for Angelina's parenting saying: “Her interests are the same as they always have been, which is to protect the kids and the health of the family.
“In the end, she is going to do what’s best for the children as she has done all along.”
In a court filing last month, Angelina claimed the judge had "failed to make timely mandatory disclosures of ongoing business and professional relationships" between himself and Brad's attorneys.
Brad's team called Angelina's filing a "thinly-veiled attempt by Jolie to delay the adjudication of long-pending custody issues in this case."
