Brad Pitt is reportedly heartbroken over the leaked court documents that claim Angelina Jolie is ready to testify about alleged domestic violence in their trial over child custody.
Pitt, 57, and Jolie, 45, have officially divorced but are battling over financial arrangements and custody of their six children: Maddox, 19, Pax, 17, Zahara, 16, Shiloh, 14, twins Knox and Vivienne, 12.

In court documents obtained by The Blast last week, Jolie is willing to bring forward "proof and authority in support" of domestic violence against her estranged husband.
According to Page Six, a source close to the Once Upon a Time in Hollywood star says he is "heartbroken that Angelina has gone that route".
"There's a lot of emotion left after their marriage," the insider added. "He has taken responsibility for his actions and owned up to his past issues, he's stopped drinking and smoking, but she has never admitted any failing whatsoever.
"The marriage was very passionate and toxic at times and — like all couples — they had fights, but also shared many good times together."
The source added that Pitt also opened up about his "drink and drug problems" he experienced throughout their marriage.
"Brad has never been arrested and charged for anything and there's never been a police report about any allegations of spousal abuse," they said. "There was the widely-publicised plane incident, but he was never charged."

The source concluded that Pitt's camp believes the claims were "calculated to sway opinion ahead of the conclusion of their trial" and that he "feels like he's being more and more isolated from his children, and he's devastated about it".
Page Six also reported the pair's children have been interviewed by court-appointed therapists and it's believed recent reports that eldest son Maddox gave negative testimony against Pitt are false.
After their divorce, Pitt was cleared of child abuse allegations by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Department of Child and Family Services regarding an incident between him and Maddox on a plane. The FBI closed their investigation on November 22, 2016.
The actress filed for divorce from Pitt in September 2016 after two years of marriage and were declared legally divorced in 2019.
