Brad Pitt Releases New Statement on ‘Family Situation’

Brad Pitt Releases New Statement on ‘Family Situation’

Actor Brad Pitt is staying out of the spotlight as his divorce from Angelina Jolie continues to make headlines.

The star released a statement to “Extra” on Tuesday, explaining that he will not be attending a screening for “Voyage of Time.” Pitt narrated the documentary directed by Terrence Malick.

He said, "Terrence's Voyage of Time is an incredibly beautiful and unique experiential IMAX film for children and families chronicling the birth of time. I'm very grateful to be part of such a fascinating and educational project, but I'm currently focused on my family situation and don't want to distract attention away from this extraordinary film, which I encourage everyone to see.”

The couple allegedly had a fight on a flight back from France that ultimately led to Jolie filing for divorce. She filed the papers last Monday citing “irreconcilable differences.”

In the court documents obtained by "Extra," Jolie is asking for physical custody of their six children — Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Vivienne, and Knox — and wants the judge to grant only joint legal custody to Pitt. She is also requesting that Pitt be given visitation rights.
