Angelina Jolie and daughter Vivienne enjoy an afternoon of shopping in Hollywood amid ongoing custody battle with Brad Pitt
Angelina Jolie is in the midst of an ongoing custody battle with ex Brad Pitt as they continue to war over their six children.
But on Monday the 45-year-old actress was seen spending quality time with daughter Vivienne Jolie-Pitt, 12, as they hit up a Forever21 in Hollywood.
The Girl, Interrupted star looked chic in a beige trench coat over an all black ensemble as she strolled out of the store with her arms around her daughter.

Angelina’s stylish getup featured black dress pants and a pair of black sandals with a bow detail.
She carried a nude bag with a gold chain around her shoulder and was suited up in a grey face mask.
Vivienne looked casual in sneakers and black shorts with a white crew neck sweatshirt.
She draped her arm lovingly around her mom’s neck, while their security guard carried a bag of new threads.

Angelina and Pitt have been at war over their kids for five years, Pitt striving for 50/50 custody with Jolie wanting full physical custody.
They announced their split in 2016 and were legally divorced in 2019, but things are far from amicable between the pair as she continues to allege abuse.
Court documents obtained by The Blast indicate that on March 12 Jolie said she and her children are willing to testify as ‘proof and authority in support’ of domestic violence.
As kids Shiloh, Knox, and Vivienne, are minors, both Brad and Angelina would need to grant permission for them to testify but Maddox, Zahara and Pax are all over 18 so would be free to make statements.

Additionally the children have all been interviewed by court-appointed therapists.
Allegations of abuse first surfaced shortly after Jolie filed for divorce, and the LAPD looked into an incident involving the Fight Club actor and son Maddox on a private jet.
He was never arrested or charged with any wrongdoing and there have been no police reports filed with regards to spousal abuse.

A source told Page Six that Angelina’s decision to offer testimony on the basis of abuse has been shattering to Pitt.
‘Brad is heartbroken that Angelina has gone that route. There’s a lot of emotion left after their marriage. He has taken responsibility for his actions and owned up to his past issues, he’s stopped drinking.’
The insider added ‘His camp feels this leak was calculated to sway opinion ahead of the conclusion of their trial,’ which is set for next month.
