Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt Agree to Temporary Custody Deal (Report)

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have reportedly come up with a temporary custody deal, which was presented to them by the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services.

The 52-year-old actor and 41-year-old actress, director, and humanitarian were reportedly given two options by DCFS, and they agreed to the private deal made vs. going at it in court, TMZ reports.

Angelina will have full physical custody of their six kids (Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and 8-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne). Brad will have an initial visit with the six kids, but a therapist must be present. The therapist will have final say if Brad will be allowed unmonitored visits in the future.

Angelina and Brad will also have family counseling with their kids, as well as individual counseling. Brad is also subject to random drug and alcohol testing.

The temporary deal is said to last 3 weeks, and then will be subject to a court ruling or new rules.

    TMZ? Hmmmmm.

    Counseling is always good.

    I hope this is temporary and I think Brad made a mistake in complying with these awful terms. I think Brad thinks being monitored like this will clear himself from any suspicions that he has a serious drug or alchol problem with DCFS/the courts before any changes in custody arrangements can be made. This is very sad. He didn’t want an ugly court battle and he knows the ball in not his court.

    Damn, you’d think Brad Pitt was this scary drug head with these terms.

  • fromanotherplanet

    BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. She must really have her receipts in order for him to agree to those terms. Jennifer is sipping a big mug of green tea right now.

  • Khazija

    If there were receipts, it would have been released or leaked in some way. All it indicates that her exaggerating the plane incident and reporting him, got her leverage with DCFS. He agreed to those terms because he didn’t want a ugly custody battle or risk having more lies spread to the media from her camp. It is temporary but I still think he made a big mistake agreeing to this. However, he can prove to DCFS officials that he does not have a serious alcohol or drug problem and show that the accusations have no merit.

    Jennifer has nothing to do with this at all. It is spiteful to wish ill will on a family. I guess people will ignore Brad’s visible history of being a good father.

  • Do Tell

    Yes, it all sounds so serious, like Brad is a big, dangerous type of man. I just can’t believe it. I’m almost hoping there are some serious problems, because if there aren’t, it makes me think Jolie is doing to him what many other women do to men, when the men lose custody and rights in court.

    I just hope not. Again, the whole situation makes me feel very sad.

  • sera

    Angie did not report the plane incident. No one said that.

  • Alphonse

    Next it will be Heidi’s turn to be sipping on tha big ole mug o green tea….or when he gets caught

  • sera

    Such sympathy for Brad. Does anyone really think this is what Angie wanted for her kids or for herself. DCFS is a scary prospect for any family. Brad misbehaved and now their are consequences. Not Angie’s fault. We have no idea how long this has been going on. Brad has been doing a lot of solo trips to Europe and hanging out over the last year.

  • Khazija

    That is what people think ( and those people are being naive).

  • MissyMiss

    Unless he’s a raging drunk, Brad’s a pussy to agree to these terms.

  • Khazija

    He isn’t but that is what he is being painted as. I think he wants to prove he is not, to DCFS. However, complying with these terms is going to have him on a rough road.

  • sera

    Thinking does not make it so.

  • sera

    The alternative would be an ugly court battle with DCFS not on his side.

  • MissyMiss

    She started it and now they’re all going to be in counseling. Great going, Angie. Those kids probably need therapy.

  • Khazija

    I am not going to engage with you too much because I know you are biased and buying into all of this with no knowledge of the situation. She invited DCFS into this so she would get sole physical custody. She knows exactly what she is doing. I feel sorry for Brad because he didn’t deserve this. I hope one day, what is right can be validated in some way.

  • MissyMiss

    I guess DCFS thinks Angie is a perfect mother.

  • MissyMiss

    these beeyotch always gets her way. she’s the perfect parent and Brad has to be accompanied by a therapist to see his kids.

  • Khazija

    Family needs discipline, rules, and structure. Now Brad has to pay the price for believing in that.

  • MissyMiss

    huh?

  • Khazija

    Referring to the familial dynamic.

  • reallifeπŸ¦„

    angelina has been vindicated by her children and nanies words to CPS

  • reallifeπŸ¦„

    her kids could have been taken away because of brad’s actions. she did what she had to do to save them from the system.

  • Majo Dfg

    Angie wasnt drunk at the plane. Guess the flight was a nightmare.

  • MissyMiss

    they are now IN the system.

  • Khazija

    No, she has not been vindicated. This is a temporary arrangement. Anybody can lie to CPS and Brad has to prove those lies are lacking in merit. He is trying to prove to DCFS that he doesn’t have a serious drug or alcohol problem.

  • fromanotherplanet

    Brad, is that you??????? Hard times huh?

  • John Dow

    Angelina actively put their six children in danger for her own desires to become the leader of the UN. She had taken the kids to various war-torn countries. She is the worst parent.

  • Marie Bunny Shepard

    Poor Brad.

  • Cheyenne

    Hoo-boy. Round one to Angie. She essentially got everything she requested.

    If Brad caved that quickly — especially to the supervised visitation which Angie DID NOT ask for — something very damaging must have surfaced on that airplane video. Evidently a lot more went down than shouting and yelling and shoving a kid out of the way.

  • Slurpee

    She used to brag about doing heroin but no drug tests for her? It’s crap.

  • lilyrose

    do you really believe she wants to become the new leader of the UN? Do believe everything you read on the net!

  • Liverwurst

    Do you?

  • Liverwurst

    Do you?

  • Liverwurst

    I’m absolutely sure he will forever hate this ex wife. I also believe that Angie just ruined what was left of her career.

  • Liverwurst

    Sounds like she insisted on an guardian ad litem. The only thing is it works BOTH ways. The guardian ad litem will be observing all of Angie’s parental behavior as well. (No more flying them to war zones) Also once an guardian ad litem is issued he/she stays with the children until they are each 18. No way to get removal. Imagine if you will trying to tell any of these 6 children “NO” during their teenage years without them calling their guardian with a complaint, lol! Good luck with that!!

  • Liverwurst

    Heidi wasn’t Justin’s wife.

  • Kitty

    I think the problem is that Angelina Jolie has always come off as the unstable one. Her previous drug use, her bipolar behavior, her antics for attention, her rush to adopt kids and her constant search for a spotlight.

    I’m not saying Brad Pitt is some sort of angel while she is the devil. I’m just saying that when a crazy person screams fire then you have to wonder if they started it.

  • norah mackenzie

    or maybe they felt that she had a stronger case than brad? i guess we will all have towait for another 3 weeks to see what happens next.

  • norah mackenzie

    really? then why is brad the only one being subject to random drug test or supervised visitation? then why is angelina getting the physical custody of the kids? if brad was such a good father – first of all i love both brad and angelina but blaming angelina for what has happened is not fair at all – you call her names – bipolar etc – she adopted maddox before she even met brad – she adopted zahara with brad just like pax – brad’s name is their surname as well – so how can pple can jump on her for adopting kids – what antics for attention? – she is an actress and has been travelling all over the world for years even before she met brad – her work is just as important as what he does – and how do you know that she is “bipolar?” – do you have a crystal ball? what happened is unfortunate but calling angelina names is not helping anyone at all. she doesnt need to rush for a spotlight – she already has one – but interesting that only angelina is there ” rushing for the spotlight? what about other celebs?

  • norah mackenzie

    nobody started anything – do you think anyone wanted this to happen – dont forget that brad himself said that he and maddox had an argument – andhow dare you blame angelina for what happened? we dont know what happened on the plane – nobody wants to break up a family for the heck of it esp a very high profile one like brad and angelina. to blame angelina when we dont have any idea what happened on the plane is just unfair

  • MissyMiss

    How dare I? πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜†

  • Khazija

    He is the one being subjugated to this because he is the one dealing with false accusations from his ex that were made to DCFS despite being cleared from the authorities. He is complying with these terms to prove to DCFS that he is not abusive and that he does not have a serious drug problem to avoid a contentious court battle. Jolie’s entire track record is being strongly ignored by people as well.

  • Khazija

    This is such spin and lies my lord. The FBI chose not to arrest Brad based on the video footage showing him not hitting anybody, lack of evidence of injury, conflicting reports, and Brad passing the drug test. The authorites had no grounds to arrest him. If the video had shown what you are claiming, he would have been arrested for assault. You are contradicting everything that has been reported.

    Brad agreed to these terms and negotiations with DCFS to prove that he doesn’t have a serious drug problem as well as show to them that he is not abusive. He did this to finally get access to his children. This is a temporary arrangement that DCFS is overseeing as a negotiation to avoid a contentious court battle over different terms. After 3 weeks, this will be amended.

  • Khazija

    Her team basically admitted she did to TMZ and is spinning this.

  • Cheyenne

    You know damn well you haven’t seen that video and you have no idea what is on it, so stop fronting like you know something nobody else does, because nobody is buying your BS.
