kids in the wake of her bombshell divorce filingearlier this week, TMZ reports.

The actor reportedly says there’s “no chance” Jolie — who in her divorce petition Monday requested sole physical custody of their children, with Pitt granted visitation — would get her way, sources told the gossip site.

A rep for Pitt did not immediately return a Daily News request for comment.

Though Jolie asked for joint legal custody, her play for sole physical custody would mean that Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and Knox and Vivienne, 8, lived with her full time.

The “Unbroken” director, citing irreconcilable differences in her paperwork, sought to end her marriage of two years “for the health of the family,” her attorney Robert Offer said Tuesday.

Sources told TMZ she’d grown tired of Pitt’s partying lifestyle — which apparently included marijuana and alcohol use — and his alleged “anger problem.” Jolie also believed those factors fostered an unsafe environment for their kids, according to the site.

Insiders close to the “Fight Club” star, meanwhile, called those claims “a malicious lie.”

Jolie, 41, and Pitt, 52, fell in love while shooting the 2005 blockbuster “Mr. and Mrs. Smith.” Their 12-year relationship and eventual marriage became a tabloid staple, and the couple — branded “Brangelina” — came to be regarded Hollywood royalty.

Pitt was blindsided by his wife’s divorce filing, a friend of his told Us Weekly.

“I am very saddened by this, but what matters most now is the well-being of our kids,” the actor said in a statement to People. “I kindly ask the press to give them the space they deserve during this challenging time.”
