Past paramours Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s court war has intensified after a new decision that disqualified  Judge John Ouderkirk from their case.

The Ad Astra star, 57, has now lost out on the joint custody he was awarded previously by Judge Ouderkirk, who was removed from the case by a three-judge panel, over violations of “his ethical obligations.”

An insider spoke to People about Pitt losing the time he was awarded with his children, saying: "Brad believes there is overwhelming evidence that the current situation isn't good for the kids. This just sets things back for everyone."

On the other hand, a spokesperson for the actor also told the outlet: "The appeals court ruling was based on a technical procedural issue. The facts haven't changed. There is an extraordinary amount of factual evidence which led the judge—and the many experts who testified—to reach their clear conclusion about what is in the children's best interests.”

“We will continue to do what's necessary legally based on the detailed findings of what's best for the children."
