In the court filing, Jolie’s lawyer argued, “'The children whose custody is at issue are old enough to understand what is going on. The trial is necessarily going to impact them emotionally.”

“'To make any of the children endure what may be a futile and void proceeding is beyond unjustified. It is cruel,” the attorney added. One of the children is believed to have been Maddox.

A source claims the kid, “doesn't use Pitt as his last name on documents that aren't legal and instead uses Jolie. Maddox wants to legally change his last name to Jolie, which Angelina has said she doesn't support.”

The revelation was included in a December 2020 filing as part of Jolie’s appeal. She believes the judge in her case failed to disclose all of his connections to Pitt’s lawyers.

The Eternals actress believed there was a conflict of interest but the judge refused to step down. She appealed that decision.

Recently, the judge determined it was in the best interest of the kids to spend their time split between their parents. The decision has infuriated Jolie who is gearing up for another war with Pitt in court.

In the weeks since the decision, Jolie has been photographed with her children around Los Angeles and New York. She even introduced her children to her first ex-husband Jonny Lee Miller.
