Brangelina: who gets the kids?

Short-term deal struck in favour of ac­tress

7 Days in Dubai - - FRONT PAGE -

An­gelina Jolie has been granted full custody of her chil­dren in a tem­po­rary deal.

The 41-year-old ac­tress has re­port­edly struck a tem­po­rary custody deal with Brad Pitt af­ter the pair split last week. The Malef­i­cent star will have full phys­i­cal custody of Mad­dox, 15, Pax, 12, Za­hara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Knox and Vivi­enne, eight, for three weeks un­til new rec­om­men­da­tions can be set­tled.

Ac­cord­ing to TMZ, whilst Brad, 52, will have vis­i­ta­tion rights dur­ing the tem­po­rary pe­riod, his ini­tial visit must be with a ther­a­pist present. The ther­a­pist will then de­cide whether or not the ac­tor can visit his chil­dren un­su­per­vised for sub­se­quent vis­its.

On top of the mon­i­tored visit, the Fight Club star will also be sub­ject to ran­dom drug and al­co­hol test­ing, although TMZ re­ports that his first test­ing came out neg­a­tive.

The news comes just days af­ter it was re­ported that Brad was wait­ing to file his re­sponse to An­gelina’s di­vorce un­til a custody deal was done.

An­gelina has re­quested sole phys­i­cal custody and joint le­gal custody, but Brad is fight­ing for com­plete shared re­spon­si­bil­ity. It was pre­vi­ously claimed that An­gelina de­cided to end their twoyear mar­riage be­cause she was wor­ried their con­stant fight­ing was not fair to the chil­dren.

An in­sider said: “[ Jolie] did try to make it work, but she couldn’t let them see Mommy and Daddy like this. The fight­ing got worse.”
