Brad Pitt (57) gets partial custody of his six children, American media report. On Wednesday it was announced that he had won the lawsuit, which he filed against his ex-wife Angelina Jolie (45).

The 57-year-old actor has been trying to get custody of his children for about five years. Brad and Angelina split in 2016 and the actress has been taking care of the children ever since. Earlier she said she had a very close relationship with them.

“He’s so relieved,” a source close to Brad told the media. “His sole purpose is to spend more time with his children.” According to the source, Angelina would have done everything she could to be the only one to keep custody. “This process took months and there were a lot of experts, witnesses, therapists and other people who gave their judgment. That’s what this decision is based on.”
