Pitt and Jolie – nicknamed “Brangelina” by fans – got married in 2014, 10 years after meeting on the set of 2005 film Mr & Mrs Smith.

The couple currently have six children – Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and eight-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.

Jolie seeks custody of all of them with only visitation rights for Pitt. This is even as she does not want spousal support.
