Specifics of the alleged settlement have not been disclosed, but “the deal will include a substantial amount of time given” to Brad.

The two reportedly realized the ongoing fight “is only hurting the children,” and the battle is expected to be finalized soon.

“Our sources are optimistic that Pitt and Jolie have found common ground and agree things need to be settled for the sake of the family, and tell us as long as nothing extreme happens, the matter will be settled,” The Blast reports.

Brad and Angelina confirmed their split in September of 2016.

    One would hope so but I’ll believe when it’s filed with the court.

  • Lylian

    I hope so too. Now some form of reconciliation can occur. Whether they like it or not, they cannot just walk away

  • Beedyq

    Hope this is true…keeping fingers and toes all crossed…

    Will wait and see as this would be best outcome for all of them
    😊

  • Beedyq

    Un Huh…me 2.

  • Patty Smyth

    Oh, I hope this is true. I’m very curious about this part…

    “Specifics of the alleged settlement have not been disclosed, but “the deal will include a substantial amount of time given” to Brad.”

    Does this mean it’s not 50/50? Because if it was, why wouldn’t they just say it??

  • Lewisbieber

    Aveeno Aniston must be chortling

  • Tickleme-pink

    Well let’s hope that is the case.

  • Patty Smyth

    Never mind, it seems like it’s going to be 50/50 custody. Here’s the full quote in The Blast article:

    As for specifics of the settlement, we’re told although Jolie fought to give Pitt minimal custody of their 6 children, the deal will include a substantial amount of time given to the “World War Z” star.

    Interesting that the Blast cites “sources close to Jolie.” I thought The Blast worked for Brad?? 🤣

  • Patty Smyth

    Let’s hope this is the case:

    “Our sources are optimistic that Pitt and Jolie have found common ground and agree things need to be settled for the sake of the family, and tell us as long as nothing extreme happens, the matter will be settled.”

    🤞🤞🤞🙏🙏🙏

  • Beedyq

    Well now the truth is out, the Blast works for Angie
    😂 🤣

    Even though it was said…”As for specifics of the settlement, we’re told although Jolie fought to give Pitt minimal custody of their 6 children, the deal will include a substantial amount of time given to the “World War Z” star”

    Now doesn’t this mean that the Blast works for the Blast and only for the Blast 😂 🤣 😃 😄 😅 😆

  • Patty Smyth

    Well, it would seem so to sane, rational & reasonable people 🤣🤣

  • Tickleme-pink

    that part about her fighting to give him minimal custody.. WOW

    and some were saying she wasn’t fighting for Sole Custody at all.

  • plez

    Let’s hope and they release a joint statement. But it is from The Blast.

    Also had to lol at the “Sources close to Jolie…” with the onlies whining all the time that The Blast worked for Brad because it had stories based on sources from him.

  • Patty Smyth

    Yes, that did sadden me to read that. 😢 I read on other sites where people kept saying she has never asked for sole custody and it was Brad just trying to smear her. This kind of says otherwise although we have to consider the (non)source, The Blast, who aren’t terribly reliable

  • Tickleme-pink

    They will twist it and turn it and mode it to something else.

  • Beedyq

    Something unrecognizable…LOL

  • Tickleme-pink

    unrecognizable to anyone not an ONLY

  • Patty Smyth

    But you know, plez, the Onlies will say you can’t trust them….or that you can, but only if it pertains to Brad

  • Beedyq

    Again this is the Blast…to be taken with a huge grain of salt until something with authenticity surfaces.

    And the Blast was careful to say that this is not a done deal…
    “Our sources say the former couple finally realized the ongoing fight is only hurting the children, and although they have not yet signed off on the agreement, it’s expected to be finalized very soon”

  • Beedyq

    100% in agreement with you
    🤞🏼 🙏🏼 👍🏼🤞🏼 🙏🏼 👍🏼

  • Beedyq

    No they cannot.

  • Beedyq

    So True.

  • Tickleme-pink

    How do they “finally realize that the ongoing fight is hurting the kids”.. Hell I don’t know anyone and I know that. The Plane Incident traumatized the kids.. but their parents not talking, fighting in public, pulling them like a rag doll is not traumatic. And it took now for them to see that. Really? The Blast and TMZ sadly have been right about a lot of this mess. So yes a grain of salt. But many of these reports have been right on the money.

  • Tickleme-pink

    There has been a lot of truth out there. It was just not what some wanted to see.

  • Patty Smyth

    Please Brad…please please please DO NOT buy Angie any jewelry from Amrit!!!!!

    (Would this qualify as extreme??) 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

  • Tickleme-pink

    Yes

  • Beedyq

    May not want to swallow whole piece what the Blast is saying re any sole custody…

    And while Angie may not have wanted sole physical custody she may not have wanted 50/50 physical custody but something like 70/30 or so…

    Bottom line is the truth is out there somewhere…still to be determined.

    Hoping whatever parenting plan is put in place per agreement or trial is best for all.

  • Tickleme-pink

    This should NEVER HAVE GOTTEN TO THIS EVER. You don’t deny your children the other half of themselves. I don’t care. You don’t do that.

  • Beedyq

    TMZ was fed directly from a certain attorney and the Blast has connections in legal circles as well so yes some has been true but most written has been full of hyperbole and speculation based on what few facts have been actually known.

    And maybe just maybe it has taken them this long for them to be able to work together and focus on what is most important, in other words to cooperate.

  • Tickleme-pink

    Were they the ones that put out that report that Brad reached out to her to settle this? then we get this report too.

  • Patty Smyth

    I think that was US Weekly

  • Code Name Spyglass

    Sounds to me like Brad acquiesced to something less than 50/50 to avoid dragging the kids through a trial. Angie took the offer because she knew she would lose through a judge.

  • Beedyq

    I am not reading that but who knows.

    I will say that Brad stayed the course, he has not walked away.

    Maybe they were both hit on the head with a gong and when they revived they realized that they were going to have to come out of their respective silos and work together.

    Musings only…LOL

  • mkv

    Don’t read it that way but unless the actual agreement gets reported we won’t know. Whatever happens if there is an agreement then BOTH of them agreed to whatever it is and they BOTH had an option not to if they didn’t like what it was.

  • Beedyq

    No it should not have but it has.

    Now hopefully healing does proceed.

    IF the Blast has an iota of truth.

  • Patty Smyth

    I’m not so sure about that. When I first read the quote as written on JJ, I thought that may be so. But when reading the full quote on The Blast, I’m leaning towards 50/50, JMO. I honestly don’t think Brad was going to setttle for anything less than 50/50 custody.

  • Beedyq

    Like Patty said that was US Weakly speculation because no one talks to American Media publications.

  • Patty Smyth

    Exactly 👍

  • Beedyq

    Yes it was.

  • Code Name Spyglass

    In this case “agreement” is just a legal term.

  • Beedyq

    Thank you.

    IF an Agreement has been reached it is something they BOTH accept and are OK with. Whatever that Agreement is.

  • mkv

    Lol then they should just go to trial if they didn’t actually agree. They already had a trial date.

  • Beedyq

    No not so, Agreement carries weight, it is not just a legal term at all.

  • Code Name Spyglass

    Putting the kids though a trial is not an option. It wouldn’t be for me either, unless their mother was harmful to them.

  • mkv

    Well it seems like NEITHER one of them wanted to put the kids through a trial if the agreement is real as reported. So seems like they BOTH agreed on that.
