Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie aren't the only ones suffering during their divorce — their six children are being put through the wringer with all the changes — including living at a hotel!
The 41-year-old actress, who has already removed her wedding ring, was spotted arriving at the Hotel Bel-Air in Los Angeles on Dec. 8 with her children in tow — Maddox, 15, Pax, 13, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and 8-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.
It's only the second time Jolie has been seen in public since filing for divorce from the 52-year-old actor at the end of September. After the split, she was first seen with the kids arriving at their Malibu beach home , which is costing her $95,000 per month.
The large brood were all checking into the hotel just hours before a judge was set to meet with Jolie's attorney, Laura Wasser, and Pitt's attorney, Lance Spiegel.
As RadarOnline.com reported, Pitt and Jolie's custody battle isn't going as smoothly as they agreed it would. After Pitt requested their custody fight file sealed from the public, the court refused his plea.
Radar obtained the explosive documents that were dated Dec. 7, revealing his desperate move. "I am extremely concerned that if court records regarding custody are not sealed, information contained therein will cause irreparable damage to our children's privacy rights," Pitt wrote to the court.
"In order to protect our children from irreparable damage," Pitt added, "I am respectfully requesting that all custody-related pleadings be sealed."
However, after the judge denied his request, their custody battle appears to be spiraling out of control. Especially after Pitt reportedly broke some of the rules set in place during their temporary custody arrangement last week by demanding more time with his kids and inviting an unapproved therapist to his visits.
As Radar reported, Pitt's alleged child abuse investigation was dropped by the FBI on Nov. 22 after it was reported Pitt had a blowout fight with his son Maddox during a flight back to the U.S.
While Jolie continues to seek joint custody, another hearing with Pitt's request to seal their divorce details is set for January 17. Do you think their custody battle will keep getting worse? Tell us in the comments below!
