Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie reach divorce custody agreement

Hollywood A-listers Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie Pitt have finally reached an agreement regarding their children with Jolie to continue to have sole custody of her six children, a representative for the actress said 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 flight 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. It says no further details could be provided, and it makes no mention of an investigation by child welfare workers into the plane incident.

“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.

The actors were married for two years and had been together for 12 years after becoming close while filming 2005’s “Mr. & Mrs. Smith.” – AP/ Agencies
