Brad Pitt, 56, and Angelina Jolie, 45 – who share six children together – split in 2016 and are currently in the midst of a custody battle. Now, it’s been claimed the actor has asked his ex’s co-star Jillian Armenante, 52, to testify as a witness in court.

Jillian starred alongside Angelina in the film Girl, Interrupted and 2007 movie A Mighty Heart.

The actor’s witness list is said to have been filed on September 21, according to US weekly.

His list reportedly includes a mix of psychologists, a therapist and security consultants.

The trial is expected to start on Monday and run until October 23.

Express.co.uk has contacted a representative for Brad, Jillian and Angelina for comment.

Brad and Angelina have been embroiled in a court battle since 2016, shortly after the latter filed for a divorce.

The pair split after two years of marriage and nine years together.

They are yet to settle on a permanent custody arrangement for their children: Maddox, 19, Pax, 16, Zahara, 15, Shiloh, 14, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 12.

A source told the publication the Once Upon a Time in Hollywood star is fighting for a “50/50 joint physical and legal custody of the kids”.

They added Angelina “has been unagreeable to those terms“.

“[She] will only agree to talk about an agreement if the home base for the children isn’t Los Angeles.

“The younger kids are in school in Los Angeles, which Angelina has always been opposed to,” they added.

“They are very smart and are eager to attend school in person [amid the COVID-19 pandemic].”

The former couple’s divorce proceedings are also said to be ongoing.

Angelina opened up about the pair’s split in a candid interview with Vogue India.

She said: “I separated for the wellbeing of my family. It was the right decision.

“I continue to focus on their healing.”

She continued, “Some have taken advantage of my silence, and the children see lies about themselves in the media, but I remind them that they know their own truth and their own minds.

“In fact, they are six very brave, very strong young people.”

Brad is now said to be dating Nicole Poturalski, 27. He was previously married to Jennifer Aniston from 2000 for five years.
