After more than two years of toing and froing, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have finally reached an agreement over custody of their six children.
The pair split back in September 2016 citing “irreconcilable differences”, but have taken over two years to come to an agreement over their three adopted and three biological children.
The exes don’t need to go to trial, as they have reached an out of court settlement over the custody of Maddox Jolie-Pitt, 17, Pax Jolie-Pitt, 15, Zahara Jolie-Pitt, 13, Shiloh Jolie-Pitt 12 and 10-year-old twins Knox Jolie-Pitt and Vivienne Jolie-Pitt.
“A custody arrangement was agreed to weeks ago, and has been signed by both parties and the judge,” Angelina Jolie’s attorney Samantha Bley DeJean said in a statement.
“The agreement, which is based on the recommendations of the child custody evaluator, eliminates the need for a trial. The filing and details of the agreement are confidential to protect the best interests of the children.”
Angelina Jolie claims that she never wanted sole custody of the children, despite reportedly having Brad Pitt investigated for “child abuse” after he allegedly lost his temper in front of them. (He has since been cleared of all allegations.)
We’re glad that they have finally come to an agreement!
