Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt to take custody battle to trial

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie appear ready to take their already-contentious divorce to an even nastier level, with TMZ reporting the squabbling ex-spouses have filed legal paperwork to take their protracted custody battle to trial.

The custody trial is now set to begin December 4, and the 2 parents could not be further apart.

The "Maleficent" actress is seeking sole physical custody of their six children, Maddox, 17, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, and 10-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne - but the 54-year-old actor is asking for 50/50 joint custody. Apparently, both sides are working toward an out-of-court settlement to arrange custody of their children without going to trial.

Pitt is said to be anxious Jolie just wants to make him look bad in her bid for sole custody, while he can see no reason for them to not split care of the children equally. Brad's legal team isn't too anxious about that, though, seeing that the actor was never criminally charged with anything.

Financial disputes will be resolved separately.

Earlier this year, Angelina was ordered by a judge to allow her children to spend more time with their father, or risk losing custody.
