Brad Pitt 'trying to stay positive' on his 58th birthday amid bitter custody battle with ex Angelina Jolie

BRAD Pitt is celebrating his 58th birthday by "trying to stay positive" on the year ahead.

The Academy Award winner is currently locked in a bitter custody battle with his ex wife Angelina Jolie.


But sources close to Brad say he isn't going to let this spoil his big day or the forthcoming new year.

The actor is celebrating his birthday today, though a source told People that he doesn't plan on doing anything too crazy.

They shared: "He plans to have a low-key birthday.

"Just sort of hanging out."

The source added: "He's staying low-key in general.

"That's really the kind of guy he is anyway. [His birthday is] a natural time for reflection for him."

CUSTODY BATTLE

Back in October Brad's motion to appeal the court's current custody decision was denied as his nasty divorce battle with Angelinarages on.

His attorneys asked that the courts review the case once more this past September after Judge John Ouderkirk was disqualified.

The custody arrangement, put forth in November of 2018, regards Brad's five minor children with Angelina Jolie.

A representative for the actor told People that the original decision "was based on a technical procedural issue and the Supreme Court's decision not to review that procedural issue does not change the extraordinary amount of factual evidence which led the trial judge — and the many experts who testified — to reach their clear conclusion about what is in the children's best interests."

"We will continue to do everything that's legally necessary based on the detailed findings of the independent experts," they claimed.

Contrarily, a representative for Angelina told the outlet that the denial was a "welcomed decision" for the mother of six.

"Ms. Jolie is focused on her family and pleased that her children's wellbeing will not be guided by unethical behavior," her attorney asserted.

"As reinforced by California's appellate courts, our judiciary prioritizes ethics and children's best interests, and won't tolerate judicial misconduct to reward the interests of a party. Ms. Jolie is glad for the family to now move forward cooperatively."

UN-HAPPY ENDING

Brad and Angelina married in August of 2014, and their divorce was finalized in April of 2019.

The pair share six children, Maddox, 20, Pax, 17, Zahara, 16, Shiloh, 15, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 13.
