Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie 'no longer' attend family therapy as 'tensions escalate' during ongoing custody battle

BRAD Pitt and Angelina Jolie are reportedly 'no longer' attending family therapy.

Sources say tensions have escalated during their ongoing custody battle, which is about to go to trial next month.

A source told Us Weekly: “Tensions have escalated between Brad and Angelina, with family therapy no longer taking place.”

“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].”

The exes child custody trial is supposed to begin next month to determine how much time each part will receive with the kids.

They share Pax, 16, Zahara, 15, Shiloh, 14, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 12.

19-year-old Maddox is free to go with either parent.

But according to Us, sources say the Yonsei University student is very estranged from Brad.

Meanwhile, Brad has been seeing German model Nicole Poturalski.

The two met last year at a Kanye West concert, but sources say he doesn't intend on marrying her.

Brad and Nicole have been keeping things "light" and the Academy Award-winning actor has no intention "nor any desire" to tie the knot again, a source told Us Weekly.

Another insider said: "They're dedicated parents who fit in dating and other social engagements around their kids' schedules.

"It's currently a go-with-the-flow situation.

"Nicole's not running around yelling her love for Brad from the rooftops … [But] Going by what Brad's been saying, they are totally falling for each other."

Nicole is also reportedly in an open marriage with restaurant mogul Roland Mary with whom she shares a seven-year-old son, Emil.

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."
