Pitt has been cleared of the charges.
For the past five years, Jolie has been the primary custodian of the children, and Pitt has been visiting. – I know that when a child has been physically or emotionally harmed or witnessed harm to someone they love, it can hurt that child. One of the reasons children must have their rights is because without them they are exposed to a dangerous, unhealthy life, Jolie told The Guardian.
