Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie reach child custody agreement

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have reached a custody agreement for their six children according to a statement that was released by Jolie's legal representative to People on Monday.

An agreement that was apparently reached over a week ago will see Jolie have full custody of the children who range in age from eight to fifteen. Brad Pitt will continue to have 'therapeutic visits' with the six children.

“We can confirm that childcare professionals have encouraged a legal agreement accepted and signed by both sides over a week ago. In accordance with this agreement, the six children will stay in their mother’s custody, and the children will continue therapeutic visits with their father. This has been determined by childcare professionals to be in the children’s best interest,” reads the statement.

“We are not in a position to discuss the details,” continues the statement. “We hope now that it is clear that the events which led to the dissolution filing involved minor children and their well being, there will be understanding of the sensitivity of the family situation. We believe that all sides are committed to healing the family and ask for your consideration during this difficult time.”


Despite the statement from Jolie's representatives, the report from People quotes several other sources which claim that this agreement is merely temporary and that Brad Pitt still plans to fight for joint custody.

Jolie and Pitt first became a couple in 2004 and married in 2014. Jolie filed for divorce in September citing 'irreconcilable differences'.
