“Brad did not want to put the kids through a custody trial, but Angie is hell bent on opposing joint custody,” a source said.
“The kids may testify in the upcoming trial, which Brad would never want to do," an informant told RadarOnline.com exclusively. "But these are his kids and he isn’t going to leave anything to chance!”
As fans of the Pitt know, Jolie previously accused him of suffering from substance abuse issues.
After their split in 2016, Pitt openly discussed his battle and said that he made the decision to get sober after the breakup with Jolie.
According to a separate source close to Pitt, “He has stayed sober for his children. Angelina is going to try and use everything that she possibly can to prevent him from getting joint custody.”

Meanwhile, Pitt isn’t letting his own feelings have any affect on how their kids view their mom.
“Brad has nothing nice to say about Angelina, but he is not going to slander her or talk bad about her around the kids,” the second source told RadarOnline.com.
“That being said, he cannot wait until the trial and his lawyers are more than ready to take this on.”
