Continue to fight for their children's 43-year-old Angelina Jolie and 54-year-old brad pitt has not yet can come to a compromise in the custody of their children: 17-year-old Maddox, 14-year-old Paxon, 13-year-old Males, 12-year-old Shiloh and 10-year-old Knox and Vivienne.

Some thought that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were separated but coming to terms with respect to the kids. Angelina reportedly wants sole physical custody of their 6 kids, but Brad wants 50/50 joint custody.

We're told the custody trial should take somewhere between 2 and 3 weeks, and then the judge has to sort it all out.
