Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are heading to trial next month for a courtroom showdown in their bitter custody battle.

The two Hollywood stars are set to duke it out in court, according to TMZ Monday, with December 4 set as the date for the start of a custody trial.

They were reported to have reached an interim custody agreement regarding their six children in late summer.

But negotiations appear to have broken down, and next month, the couple will ask a judge to rule on the custody battle over their six children, as well as their shared property, after it was revealed they had no prenup.

The celebrity exes have filed paperwork in Los Angeles asking to be given until next June to hash out the details of their split with the help of a retired private judge.

The proceedings will take place behind closed doors with Jolie seeking sole custody of the children while Pitt wants shared custody.

The two, met on the set of the 2005 film Mr. & Mrs. Smith, married in an intimate ceremony on August 23, 2014 in Correns, France, and separated in September 2016.

They share Maddox, 17, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, and 10-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.

The private judge will also oversee the division of property as part of the divorce settlement since Pitt and Jolie didn’t have a prenup.

Meanwhile, Jolie, 43, has been in South Korea where she was seen taking son Maddox to visit a university in Seoul and then eating out at a local restaurant with son Pax.

Pitt, 54, is currently in Los Angeles where he is filming the new Quentin Tarantino film Once Upon A Time In Hollywood.

At the weekend he teamed up with his co-star Leonardo DiCaprio in a video urging people to get out and vote in the midterm elections on Tuesday.

And on Sunday night, he brushed shoulders with his fellow stars as he presented a trophy at the Hollywood Film Awards.

In July 2017, Angelina addressed the split in an interview with Vanity Fair.

She revealed that ‘things got bad’ between the two, adding that ‘It’s just been the hardest time, and we’re just kind of coming up for air.’
