“Brad will ask for shared custody. Their children will always be their chief priority. They will keep up a happy-mom-and-dad facade for those kids,” a friend told In Touch. “Brad and Angelina love each other, but something went very wrong along the way. They’ve had just one too many fights. It’s sad that it’s come to this.”
