Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s Temporary Custody Deal involves Random Drug Testing and Therapy
Less than two weeks after Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie confirmed their plans to divorce, the Hollywood stars have agreed upon a temporary custody agreement for their six children, according to TMZ.
Per the report, the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services has recommended that, for the next three weeks, Jolie “gets full physical custody” of the couple’s children Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, Knox, 8, and Vivienne, 8. Meanwhile, Pitt is allowed to visit the children under one caveat.
“The initial visit is with a therapist present and the therapist then has the power to either allow Brad subsequent unmonitored visits or insist on being present whenever he’s around the kids,” TMZ reports. The outlet adds, “Brad is subject to random drug/alcohol testing. As we reported, Angelina believes Brad has issues with alcohol and weed. Our law enforcement sources say Brad’s first test was negative for drugs and alcohol.”
Additionally, both actors will “submit to individual counseling” as well as “family counseling” with their children present.
A source close to the case confirms to Vanity Fair that TMZ’s report of the agreement is accurate and adds, “Angelina is only focused on the safety and well-being of her children right now.”
TMZ reports that the Hollywood couple reached a temporary deal on Friday.
