The Brangelina split takes another twist...

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s increasingly bitter split has taken another dramatic twist as they prepare for a possible custody battle.

It’s been claimed that Brad, 52, may have some audio recordings of Angelina, 41, that could affect her bid to have full custody of the couple’s six children Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and 8-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox.

Brad Pitt hits red carpet after child abuse claims scrapped

‘We believe audio tapes exist of Angelina that would be absolutely dynamite if they were to be made public,’ an insider alleges.

‘Nobody wants to play dirty like that – it’s not good for the children.’

This shocking news comes after Brad was cleared of abuse allegations this week when an investigation by the LA Department of Children and Family Services found no evidence of wrongdoing and was closed.

It’s thought that the probe was launched following suggestions the actor might have gotten into an altercation with Maddox on a private jet in September.

Now Brad is seeking joint physical and legal custody of the kids following Angelina filing for divorce just a day after the alleged incident with Maddox.

‘Brad has made it obvious that he wants to come to a mature arrangement,’ the source tells The Sun. ‘And stop throwing dirt at each other.’

Neither Angelina nor Brad have spoken out about these reports but Ange did release a statement after Brad was cleared in the DCFS investigation.

‘Angelina said from the beginning that she felt she had to take action for the health of the family,’ her reps told TMZ.

‘She is relieved that after their eight-week involvement, the DCFS is now satisfied the safeguards are put in place that will allow the children to heal.’

Whilst Angelina hasn’t been seen in public for a while, Brad stepped out at the LA premiere of his new movie Allied on Wednesday and thanked fans for getting behind him.

‘It’s really sweet,’ he told E! Online. ‘Everyone has been really kind out here. It’s really nice to have all the support.’
