A judge has rejected Brad Pitt’s request to have the files detailing his custody battle with Angelina Jolie sealed.
Los Angeles Superior Court Richard J. Burdge Jr. denied Pitt’s request in a written order stating that the case did not meet the requirements for sealing details at this time, the LA Times reports.
Jolie’s attorney Laura Wasser did not oppose Pitt’s request, but his lawyers did not consult with her before appealing to the judge to have the files sealed in an emergency hearing.
We reported earlier this week that TMZ unearthed court documents stating that Brad and Angie’s six kids – Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and eight-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne – will remain in Angelina’s custody for now.
Brad will also continue to have “therapeutic visitation” with the kids as well as have individual therapeutic sessions weekly.
Pitt’s attorney Gary Fishbein declined comment after the hearing.
The court’s ruling on the recent custody agreement came shortly after the FBI revealed that it will no longer pursue criminal charges against the Allied star. They were originally inquiring about the incident between the 52-year-old actor and his son Maddox aboard a private flight.
The fight is believed to have led to Angelina’s divorce filing in September this year.
