Brad is said to be anxious Angelina just wants to make him look bad in her bid for sole custody, while he can see no reason for them to not split care of the children equally.

A source said: "Both parties continue to work together toward a settlement". It remains to be seen whether the custody trial in December will result in a more permanent agreement.

The two have been feuding over the custody of their brood ever since Jolie filed for divorce in 2016.

They added to People magazine: "Angelina isn't seeking full custody".

The trial scheduled for December 4, will likely behind closed doors and not at a public courthouse, according to the wishes of the two estranged couple. In fact, Angelina Jolie's camp accused Brad Pitt of not providing "meaningful" child support.

A judge also needs to rule on a property settlement as the stars did not sign a prenup.

But days later, the Fight Club star argued he had "loaned" his estranged wife $8 million to help her purchase her current house and contributed over $1.3 million "in bills for the benefit of [Jolie] and the minor children".

Sources close to the situation told The Blast this week that Pitt feels Jolie, who is fighting for sole custody, is "purely trying to drag him through the mud in the upcoming custody trial" and that Pitt is "worried about the longterm effects it will have on their six children".

His lawyer Lance Spiegel added that Brad "adamantly disputes the contention that he has not paid child support".

The trial could take up to 3 weeks and the judge will have the duty of going thru all the info and making a decision.
