Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have reached a custody agreement for their children.
E! News has learned that all six of their children – Maddox Chivan Jolie-Pitt, 15, Pax Jolie-Pitt, 12, Zahara Marley Jolie-Pitt, 11, Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt, 10, and twins Knox and Vivienne Jolie-Pitt Jolie- Pitt 8 – remain in the custody of Angelina.
We also learned that the main concern of Angelina has always been the safety and well-being of her children.
Meanwhile, a separate source explains that the couple has not “settled” on something about their children and there is no change in the status of their previous voluntary agreement.
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 well being, 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.”
Just last Friday, Brad filed for joint custody of the former couple’s children as Angelina asked for sole custody at the time of the divorce announcement back in mid-September.
The actor has been under investigation over a mid-air altercation on a private aircraft Sept. 14 with son Maddox.
This marks the second divorce for Brad, who was previously married to Jennifer Aniston, and the third divorce for Angelina, who was also married to Billy Bob Thornton and Jonny Lee Miller.
