Angelina Jolie has been seen out shopping in Hollywood with her arm around 12-year-old daughter Vivienne Marcheline Jolie-Pitt, as the bitter high-profile custody battle with Jolie’s ex-husband, Brad Pitt, continues.
The 45-year-old actress was seen with one of the youngest of her six children, walking out of a Forever21 store in Hollywood, alongside a member of their security staff who carried their new purchases.
Jolie was wearing a stylish trench coat in gray, with black pants and a top seen underneath. She accessorized her outfit with a nude bag with a gold chain and wore a gray face mask to keep in line with coronavirus guidelines in Los Angeles.
Vivienne — one of the twins — wore black shorts, a white sweater with motif, and a blue face mask. Her brunette hair was tied back, while Jolie’s flowed casually around her shoulders as she exited the fashion store.
The mother and daughter had their arms around each other as they walked out of the shop, accompanied by their security.
Vivienne Jolie-Pitt was praised for showing love and affection to her mother during the complicated divorce process.
One person shed tears after seeing the photos and penned this message: “She literally loves her mother. 😍😢”
Another follower stated: “It’s so nice to see a child show affection towards their mother! You don’t see that too often today… In this Sinful world in which we live. Evil will always attempt to destroy True Love! ♥️”

The bitter custody battle between Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt has been going on for five years. Recently, their eldest son, Maddox, 19, testified against his father, which was reported to be “not very flattering.”
Angelina Jolie has alleged domestic abuse since she split from Brad Pitt in 2016. While previous investigations of the 57-year-old actor have resulted in no charges, Jolie has recently said she and her children have proof and will testify if needed so she can get 100% custody of their children, with Pitt reportedly “heartbroken” by the news.
A source close to Brad Pitt revealed to Page Six that he is brokenhearted by the situation.
The actor is particularly devasted over the private court documents, in this case, that are being leaked by Jolie and her camp.
The person familiar with the situation shared: “Brad is heartbroken that Angelina has gone that route. There’s a lot of emotion left after their marriage.”
The insider went on to explain why Pitt is frustrated by Jolie’s moves to ruin his reputation and destroy the relationship that he has with his children: “He has taken responsibility for his actions and owned up to his past issues, and he’s stopped drinking. The marriage was very passionate and toxic at times, and — like all couples — they had fights but also shared many good times together. He has talked about his drink and drug problems during the time they were together.”
Once one of the most adored couples in Hollywood, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt finalized their divorce in 2019 and have been fighting over the custody of their children since.
