California Supreme Court denied Brad Pitt's appeal in ongoing custody battleActor, 57, wanted to appeal June decision to disqualify judge hearing the caseCourt ruled in June judge failed to sufficiently disclose business relationship with Pitt's attorneysPitt and Jolie have six children, but only five minors subject to custody decision 

Brad Pitt has lost an appeal against ruling that disqualified a judge in his custody battle with Angelina Jolie.    

The California Supreme Court yesterday denied a review of a June appeals court decision that said the private judge, John Ouderkirk, hearing the case should be disqualified for failing to sufficiently disclose his business relationships with Pitt’s attorneys.

The decision effectively made void a previous ruling granting Pitt additional time with his five minor children. 

The state Supreme Court’s decision finalizes that ruling. It means the fight over the couple´s five minor children – which was nearing an end – could just be getting started.

‘Ms. Jolie is focused on her family and pleased that her children´s wellbeing will not be guided by unethical behavior,’ her attorney, Robert Olson, said in an email.

Pitt’s attorney had previously argued that Jolie’s effort to disqualify the judge was aimed at preventing his tentative custody decision, which was favorable to Pitt, from taking effect.

A statement from a representative for Pitt on Wednesday said the Supreme Court decision ‘does not change the extraordinary amount of factual evidence which led the trial judge – and the many experts who testified – to reach their clear conclusion about what is in the children´s best interests.’

Jolie, 46, and Pitt, 57, were among Hollywood´s most prominent couples for 12 years. 

Brad and Angelina received a divorce ruling in 2019, but the child custody issues were separated. Pictured: Angelina with five of her six children: Shiloh (left), Zahara (second left), Vivienne (third right), Maddox (second right) and Knox (right)

A former Los Angeles County Superior Court judge, John Ouderkirk, officiated at their 2014 wedding, then was hired to oversee their divorce when Jolie filed to dissolve the marriage in 2016.

He ruled the couple divorced in 2019, but he separated the child custody issues.

Jolie and Pitt have six children: 20-year-old Maddox, 17-year-old Pax, 16-year-old Zahara, 15-year-old Shiloh, 13-year-old Vivienne and 13-year-old Knox. 

Only the five minors are subject to custody decisions.
