Angelina Jolie's fight for full custody of her kids just got more complicated.
As you surely know, the Maleficent star shocked fans when she filed for divorce from husband Brad Pitt AND requested primary physical custody of their kiddos. Miz Jolie seemed to be getting her way as she was granted temporary custody of her brood amid the Department of Child and Family Services' investigation of Pitt and the alleged plane incident.

However, since the Allied actor has been cleared by the DCFS and has filed his response to the 41-year-old's divorce petition, it appears a custody battle is certainly a-brewin'! To make matters worse, The Sun recently reported that there are "recordings" of Angie which could greatly embarrass the A-lister.
And insider dished to the publication:
"We believe audio tapes exist of Angelina that would be absolutely dynamite against her if they were to be made public. Nobody wants to play dirty like that but Angelina and her team seem absolutely hell-bent on trying to discredit Brad in order to stop him getting full custody."
Oof. The source went onto to comment on the rumored face off between Pitt and his son Maddox as they added:
"Yes, there was an argument on a plane between him and Maddox, but that's it. It's not abuse."
Nonetheless, this report must be making the Fight Club performer very happy as it's been said the humanitarian is still trying to prove her former flame did abuse at least one of their children. Ugh.
We honestly hate seeing all this mud slinging in the press and hope the twosome are able to somehow amicably move forward in their divorce. To the Brangelina Brood we just want to say, stay strong kids!
