Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt Reach Temporary Child Custody Agreement

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have reached a temporary, voluntarty agreement in the custody of their six children, according to her representative.

In a statement from Angelina‘s rep, it is explained that the children will stay with their mother and continue “therapeutic visits” with their father.

“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,” the statement read.

It continued, “We are not in a position to discuss the details. 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.”

Last week, Brad filed for joint custody of the six children – Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and 8-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox – after this voluntary agreement was reached.

    This doesn’t sound like a joint statement. It’s the same shit AJ’s lawyers said one month ago.

  • HG

    Wow. I can’t believe they didn’t grant Brad joint custody. I understand a mother’s desire to protect her kids, but something seems really off and shady when it comes to AJ… I wonder if we will ever hear what really happened.

    what a surprise, the mother gets the children…

    This is a temporary agreement reached by Angelina and Brad together, not a permanent agreement, as they say they are working on healing their family. The Court has not ruled on custody. Angelina has the kids for now and Brad gets visitation until the family heals.

    “…and continue therapeutic visits with their father…” So Brad has seen the kids regularly already. Anyway, I don’t know where all this will lead Angie and Brad but right now this rep statement and thread is po-si-ti-vi-ty.

    Great news, i hope it´s true and i think so because it´s from AP-news and not from TMZ or People. I think Angie camp will give the new info in the future only to credible news-agencies, enough of gossip-liars.

    I was tired to read the same boring lies, “divorce-war”, “Jolie destroyed Pitt”, “Brad is the good father, Angelina is the evil mother”, “Jolie want to take the kids from Pitt”,… it´s upsetting, distressing and painful to see the same old and boring BS news from “inside-friends” portraying Angelina as the bad woman and evil wife that want to destroyed Brad. It´s a big lie and unfair to Angelina to see that the majorities of the gossip-news are making her the bad one and Brad the unlucky man that was falsely accused of having serious problems of bad temper and alcohol.

    People need to understand that a family with adopted kids have much more obligations and responsibilities and are subjected to a more restricted observation from the Child-Agencies than a ´normal´family.

    Since the moment, someone call the Autorities reporting Brad anger issues with the kids inside a plane, the situation escape the control of Brad or Angelina. It was a no return situation. The stupidity of Brad in that plane put in danger all the kids and family. They could lost ALL the kids.

    IF the altercation and the anger moment of Pitt was in their home without any strange person that could see it, they probably would resolved the problems inside, together as a normal family usually do. But unfortilly for Brad and Angie in that plane someone call the Child-Agency and it was he end of the JP family privacy.

    Angelina was in RISC to lose the kids too, i believed that she ask for divorce to save their kids unity. If Angie have stayed in Brad side and tried to protected Brad, lying to the child-agents or something similar, she could put all the kids in a foster home, It was a very delicate situation that Brad created for all in the family.

    so i think Angie was forced to acted in this from, divorcing from Brad was the strongest signal for the Child-Agency that she was not in the Brad Pitt side, and she was able to take the kids and give them all they need .

    I think Angie was very strong and courageous to do what she have to do to keep the kids with her.
    What i don´t get is why the people can´t see it. it´s unbelievable.Angelina have to be praised not hated. Brad shameless attitude created all this dangerous situation and it´s Angelina that is working hard to save something… the more important …. the 6 kids.
