The back and forth between Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, once Hollywood’s hottest power couple, continues.
According to E Online, Pitt has filed a case challenging Jolie being given full custody of their children in a July ruling.
In the verdict, the Mr and Mrs Smith actor was given visitation rights.
In Pitt's court filings, the actor said that the continued court cases had hurt him and his children.

"After more than four years of contentious litigation, every day of which has harmed the children and their father,” the court papers read.
Pitt faulted the ruling, which gave Jolie custody, saying it was done due to an administrative error.
In May, Pitt was tentatively given joint custody of their five underage children.
However, Jolie sought the disqualification of the judge's ruling, saying he had a personal interest in the matter as he had officiated their wedding in 2014.
An appeal court approved Jolie’s request, and she was granted full custody of the kids.
In their court filings, Pitt’s team of lawyers accused Jolie of waiting three years to file for disqualification of the judge. Pitt's team argued the judge was improperly disqualified.
Jolie and Pitt separated two years after walking down the aisle, with the Tomb Raider actress citing irreconcilable differences.
Since then, they have been tussling over custody of their children.
Divorce hampering career growth
In April, the 45-year-old said that their ongoing divorce is why she had taken a backseat from directing.
According to the mother of six, the family drama denied her time and concentration, making it difficult to commit to her directing aspiration.
“I love directing, but I had a change in my family situation that has not made it possible for me to direct for a few years,” the actress told Entertainment Weekly.
