Everything We Know About Brad Pitt And Angelina's Alleged Custody Agreement


There's plenty of conflicting information regarding the Jolie-Pitt divorce flying around the internet, and fans can likely count on things to stay complicated for the foreseeable future.

In a statement to PEOPLE, a rep for Angelina Jolie insisted a settlement had been reached between the actress and estranged husband, Brad Pitt, following his reported decision to file a request for joint custody on Friday.

The rep told the site,

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.

Though the statement did not delve into too many details, the rep added,

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.

Sounds manageable, no? Sadly, the agreement may be less of a settlement and more of a temporary solution.

TMZ reports Angelina will have physical custody and Brad will have therapist-monitored visitation for the duration of the LA County Department of Children and Family Services' investigation.

Once the LA DCFS' investigation is officially closed, a family court judge will help the couple reach a settlement regarding the custodial fate of Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Vivienne and Knox, according to TMZ.

Hopefully, Brangelina are able to find a solution for their family without experiencing too much contention. They have, like, seven billion* kids to shelter from the jading reality of divorce.

* UGH I KNOW IT'S SIX. Whatever.
