The investigation into child abuse allegations against Brad Pitt is coming to an end soon, a source close to the case tells ET. 

Last month, the voluntary safety plan implemented by the Department of Child and Family Services in September was extended, as people close to Pitt and Jolie still needed to be interviewed by DCFS for the investigation. However, our source says that now it's only a matter of getting paperwork in order for the investigation to come to an official close. 

Meanwhile, 41-year-old Jolie and 52-year-old Pitt have come to their own custody plan aside from the DCFS safety plan. Jolie and Pitt actually spoke directly to reach the new custody agreement, a source told ET. 

On Monday, a representative for Jolie told ET that Jolie and Pitt'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 -- will remain in the actress' custody. "Childcare professionals have encouraged a legal agreement accepted and signed by both sides over a week ago," the rep said in a statement. "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." 

However, sources tell ET that the agreement is only temporary until the two are able to work out a more permanent child custody settlement. On Friday, Pitt filed his response to Jolie’s divorce petition and requested joint custody. Jolie initially requested full custody in her filing in September. 

"This is what Brad and Angelina have decided between each other for the children," one source said. "The agreement is also indefinite, so there is no time frame to it, it is in place until they decide to make a change."

Brad Pitt will make his first red carpet appearance since his split from Angelina Jolie at the premiere of his new film Allied tomorrow night, PEOPLE confirms.


  1. Well, if true it`s good news. Hope they are able to co parent together in a health manner. And of course Brad will walk the red carped. It`s clearly that he`s moving on with his life. Just a sad fan.

  2. I'm sad too. Maybe the silver lining is life will be better for Angie and the kids. I think its good the kids will reside with her as their father is having a mid-life change. He can do his thing without them witnessing and being hurt. He can see them when it fits his schedule. Go do films in other countries to keep his name in lights.

    Angie's still young and desirable, the world is still her oyster. She's very brave and puts good karma into the world.

    I'm kind of bitter right now, but this will pass. I think I'm about to throw away all my BP dvd's...I kid!

    1. @agility before you through away your bp dvds lol give them time. Their emotions are high and their probably both operating out of hurt right now so time is needed as Jolie says for healing. This will not be a quick fix for either of them.
