Tem­po­rary agree­ment af­ter cou­ple split

7 Days in Dubai - - CELEBRITY FIX -

An­gelina Jolie Pitt will con­tinue to have sole cus­tody of her six chil­dren with Brad Pitt in a joint agree­ment reached by the ac­tors, a rep­re­sen­ta­tive for the ac­tress said.

The vol­un­tary agree­ment calls for the for­mer cou­ple’s six chil­dren, who range in ages from eight to 15, to con­tinue to have “ther­a­peu­tic vis­its” with Brad for the time be­ing.

It is un­clear what ther­a­peu­tic vis­its en­tailed, and An­gelina’s rep­re­sen­ta­tives said they could not pro­vide ad­di­tional details. A rep­re­sen­ta­tive for Brad de­clined to com­ment.

The state­ment said the agree­ment was reached more than a week ago, even though Brad told a court on Fri­day that he is seek­ing joint cus­tody.

An­gelina filed for di­vorce in Septem­ber, days af­ter Brad was in­volved in a dis­tur­bance dur­ing a pri­vate flight with his fam­ily.

She cited ir­rec­on­cil­able dif­fer­ences as the rea­son for the break-up, and a lawyer said at the time she filed for di­vorce “for the health of the fam­ily”.

The state­ment makes no men­tion of an in­ves­ti­ga­tion by child wel­fare work­ers into the plane in­ci­dent.

The agree­ment has not been filed in the cou­ple’s di­vorce, and may not be the fi­nal cus­tody ar­range­ment gov­ern­ing the ac­tors’ chil­dren.

Brad and An­gelina reached a tem­po­rary cus­tody agree­ment in late Septem­ber that in­cluded at least some of the same terms – vis­i­ta­tion with his chil­dren and both sides agree­ing to meet­ings with ther­a­pists.

“We be­lieve that all sides are com­mit­ted to heal­ing the fam­ily and ask for your con­sid­er­a­tion dur­ing this dif­fi­cult time,” the state­ment said.

The cou­ple were mar­ried for two years and to­gether for 12 years af­ter be­com­ing close while film­ing 2005’s Mr & Mrs Smith.
