LOS ANGELES (AP) — 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 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.
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 immediately 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 Sept. 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 toward 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.”


A representative for the actress released the following statement:

"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."

The statement continued, "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."





Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt spoke directly to reach a new custody agreement, a source tells ET.

ET has learned that this agreement is separate from the voluntary safety plan implemented by the Department of Child and Family Services that was extended last month

 “This is what Brad and Angelina have decided between each other for the children,” the source added. “The agreement is also indefinite, so there is no time frame to it, it is in place until they decide to make a change... This is a good sign, it is the first step. This means one issue is now off the table for them.”

 “Back when Angelina first filed for divorce, she said that the reason she filed was for the safety and health and well-being of the kids and that has been her consistent point of view from the beginning,” the source explained. “Nothing has changed.”

“From the beginning, Brad only wants to do what’s best for the children," another source previously told ET. 

ET has also learned that the 52-year-old actor will not be withdrawing his petition for shared custody, as it “preserves his rights in the future.”

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt spoke directly to reach a new custody agreement, a source tells ET.
The actress’ rep announced in a statement to ET on Monday 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,” the statement continued. “This has been determined by childcare professionals to be in the children’s best interest.” 

ET has learned that this agreement is separate from the voluntary safety plan implemented by the Department of Child and Family Services that was extended last month, and is the first step towards a more permanent custody agreement.
“This is what Brad and Angelina have decided between each other for the children,” the source added. “The agreement is also indefinite, so there is no time frame to it, it is in place until they decide to make a change... This is a good sign, it is the first step. This means one issue is now off the table for them.”
A source close to the Jolie-Pitt child custody dispute tells ET that the agreement referenced in Jolie's rep statement is not permanent. The agreement that is currently in place -- and agreed upon by the couple -- is only temporary until Pitt and Jolie continue to work out a more permanent child custody settlement.

Pitt filed his response to Jolie’s divorce petition on Friday and requested joint custody of the couple’s six children: 15-year-old Maddox, 12-year-old Pax, 11-year-old Zahara, 10-year-old Shiloh, and 8-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne. Jolie initially requested full custody in her filing in September.
“Back when Angelina first filed for divorce, she said that the reason she filed was for the safety and health and well-being of the kids and that has been her consistent point of view from the beginning,” the source explained. “Nothing has changed.” 

“Unlike Jolie’s side, Brad’s side is actually attempting to abide by the confidentiality agreement that both parties signed, something Angelina’s side has no interest in doing,” the source close to the Jolie-Pitt child custody battle tells ET. “From the beginning, Brad only wants to do what’s best for the children, and that’s not fighting this in the public press.”
ET has also learned that the 52-year-old actor will not be withdrawing his petition for shared custody, as it “preserves his rights in the future.”

The agreement has not been filed in the couple's divorce. The statement also did not mention the investigation of the alleged altercation on a private plane in September.
“There is no expiration date on the agreement," the insider explains. "The only way for this agreement to change is if both parties agree to a change or Brad must file a completely new motion to go to court."
Another source tells Us that Jolie “will retain temporary sole physical custody of the children until the investigations are closed and then they will workout custody from there."

Another source close to the actor also told Us earlier that Pitt will continue to fight for joint legal and physical custody of the children."Brad’s filing demonstrates that he’s going to fight for the kids," the insider tells Us. "His filing shows that he is going to stand firm on sharing custody of the kids. It’s a clear sign that he’s going to fight for his right for the kids."
"There is still an open investigation going on by the FBI and DCFS, and the results of those investigations will be a factor in determining custody. Brad just wants the level of visitation and amount of custody a parent would have in a normal situation. Once those cases close, either DCFS or the FBI have the option to recommend charges or refer the case to another court."

LOS ANGELES (AP) — 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 Monday.
The voluntary 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 for the time being.
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, although Pitt has told a court he is seeking joint custody. 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.
The agreement has not been filed in the couple's divorce, and may not be the final custody arrangement governing the actors' children.

The actor filed a legal response to the divorce on Friday and sought joint custody of the children. Formal custody arrangements are included a couple's divorce judgment, although they are rarely made public in celebrity divorce cases.
Pitt's filing did 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 Sept. 15 as the day of their separation, one day after the alleged plane altercation between Pitt and his 15-year-old son, Maddox.

A story is circulating Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have settled their custody dispute ... total BS.
Multiple sources familiar with the situation are scoffing at the report that the divorcing couple struck a settlement giving Angelina primary physical custody while Brad got visitation.
TMZ broke the story ... Brad filed legal docs Friday sharply contesting Angelina's request for primary physical custody. Instead, Brad wants a judge to award joint physical and legal custody to both.
The report published by Associated Press cites an Angelina source who says the couple reached the mutual agreement which includes family therapy. In fact, the couple agreed to extend the temporary arrangement ONLY until the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services closes its investigation.
As TMZ and other outlets reported, Brad and Angelina agreed she would have physical custody during the DCFS investigation and Brad would have visitation monitored by a therapist. That agreement was extended last week, but it is NOT a settlement. That will be handled by the family court judge.
Again, Brad just filed docs Friday asking for joint custody, and the AP report says the couple reached a settlement last week, so the story makes no sense on its face.
