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.
The source said that Pitt has been trying to work out a settlement in which the two parents split custody 50/50 - but that Jolie has been unwavering in her fight for sole custody. News report, published on Tuesday, Nov. 6, 2018, the estranged exes will be taking their custody battle to trial next month.
Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt in 2016, after two years of marriage, although the couple had been together since 2006.
They added to People magazine: "Angelina isn't seeking full custody". Brad is requesting joint legal and physical custody.
The 54-year-old later hit back at the mother-of-six, as he claimed that he paid over $1 million of child support since their split.
In addition to the custody dispute, the private judge also needs to handle a property settlement agreement as the former couple do not have a prenuptial agreement.
The judge told her: "If the minor children remain closed down to their father and depending on the circumstances surrounding this condition, it may result in a reduction of the time they spend with [Jolie] and may result in the Court ordering primary physical custody to [Pitt]".
