Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s custody battle has reached a temporary agreement.
A representative for Jolie told ET in a statement 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 continues. “This has been determined by childcare professionals to be in the children’s best interest.”
Jolie’s rep concluded her statement by saying, “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.”
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.
“From the beginning, Brad only wants to do what’s best for the children,” a source tells ET
