Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have reportedly reached a custody agreement regarding their six children, Maddox Jolie-Pitt, 15, Pax Jolie-Pitt, 12, Zahara Jolie-Pitt, 11, Shiloh Jolie-Pitt, 10, and twins Knox Jolie-Pitt and Vivienne Jolie-Pitt, 8.
The actress has released a statement claiming both parties have agreed that the children will remain in their mother’s custody with “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,” a rep for the actress tells People. “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.”
“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 wellbeing, 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 a response to Ange’s September 19 petition for sole custody, asking for joint physical and legal custody of the children.
Brad’s reps are yet to respond.
