Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's planet-rocking divorce, a.k.a. the the singular event that has effectively ruined all of 2016, has reportedly gotten a bit more complicated than was initially reported. Sources toldTMZ Tuesday that Pitt isn't down with Jolie's request for full physical custody, meaning he's prepared to "fight and fight hard" for joint physical custody of their six children.

"There's no chance that's going to happen," a source said of Jolie's desire for Pitt to only maintain visitation rights. The source also clarified, however, that any alleged legal battle would not be a move of animosity from Pitt. In fact, Pitt reportedly feels Jolie is a "great mother" and has no intentions of hurting her during divorce proceedings.

Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt Tuesday, citing "irreconcilable differences." Though a vaguely worded Page Sixreport alleged that Pitt was having an A-list affair, TMZreported that the split was instead purely the result of Jolie growing "fed up" with Pitt's "consumption of weed and possibly alcohol." Jolie also reportedly took issue with Pitt's parenting methods.

In separate statements hours after news of their impending split broke, Pitt and Jolie urged everyone to refrain from invading their privacy during the family's difficult time. Geyer Kosinski, Jolie's manager of many years, also released a statement to E! News echoing their call for privacy. "Angelina is doing what's best in the interest of taking care of her children," Kosinski said. "She appreciates everyone's understanding of their need for privacy at this time."
