Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt reach custody agreement over children

Angelina Jolie Pitt will continue to have sole custody of her six children with Brad Pitt in a joint agreement reached by the actors, a representative for the actress said on Monday.


The agreement calls for the former couple's six children, who range in ages from 8 to 15, to continue to have "therapeutic visits" with Pitt.

Jolie Pitt filed for divorce in September, days after Pitt was involved in a disturbance during a private fight with his family. She cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the breakup, and an attorney said at the time she filed for divorce "for the health of the family."

Monday's statement said the agreement was reached more than a week ago in consultation with childcare professionals, the AP reported. The statement said no further details could be provided, and it makes no mention of an investigation by child welfare workers into the plane incident.

Pitt and Jolie Pitt reached a temporary custody agreement in late September that included at least some of the same terms - visitation with his children and both sides agreeing to meetings with therapists.

"We believe that all sides are committed to healing the family and ask for your consideration during this difficult time," Monday's statement said.

A representative for Pitt declined comment.

The actor filed a legal response to the divorce on Friday and sought joint custody of the children. Whether a judge will have to weigh in on the agreement was not clear, although many parents are able to work out custody agreements without a formal hearing.

Pitt's filing does not include any new details about the couple's breakup. Pitt cited irreconcilable differences and makes no mention of a prenuptial agreement that will govern how the pair divides their assets. He also cites September 15 as the day of their separation, one day after the alleged plane altercation between Pitt and his 15-year-old son, Maddox.

Pitt was accused of being abusive towards the teenager, sources told The Associated Press, but authorities were not notified when the plane landed in Minnesota. Several sources said the incident was being investigated by the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services, but the agency said it could not confirm whether it was involved.

The actors were married for two years and together for 12 years after becoming close while filming 2005's "Mr. & Mrs. Smith."

As one of Hollywood's elite power couples, the actors transformed the flurry of headlines into a force for good.

They adopted children from Cambodia, Vietnam and Ethiopia. In 2006, they formed the Jolie-Pitt Foundation, to which they funnelled many of the millions they made selling personal pictures to celebrity magazines.

Jolie Pitt, who became special envoy for the United Nations in 2012, became an outspoken voice for refugees, as well as for breast cancer treatment after undergoing a double mastectomy herself. Pitt built homes in New Orleans for victims of Hurricane Katrina.

The pair recently sold a home they purchased in New Orleans' French Quarter for $4.9 million.

Their only other on-screen role together is in 2015's "By the Sea," about a troubled American couple having a holiday in France.

Pitt skipped the September 28 premiere of the Terrence Malick's new documentary "Voyage of Time: The IMAX Experience," which he narrated. In a statement, Pitt said he was skipping the premiere because he was currently focused on my family situation and don't want to distract attention away from this extraordinary film."

Pitt stars with Marion Cotillard in Robert Zemeckis' upcoming spy thriller "Allied."

Jolie Pitt earlier this year finished shooting her fourth feature as director, "First They Killed My Father." The film, about the 1970s Khmer Rouge regime, was shot in Cambodia. www.telegraph.co.uk
