Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie Reach Temporary Custody Agreement After Very Messy Split
Actor Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have reached a temporary custody agreement more than a week after announcing their split. As TMZ first reported, the L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services suggested the deal and recommended that both stars accept to avoid a lengthy court battle. The agreement will be in effect for three weeks, at which time the DCFS will draw up another arrangement or turn the jurisdiction over to the court.
Jolie, 41, will get full physical custody of the couple’s six children: Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 8. Pitt, 52, will receive visitation rights, but the initial visit will be monitored by a therapist, who then has the authority to allow or deny the Fight Club actor unmonitored time with the kids. In addition, the Mr. and Mrs. Smith costars will both undergo individual counseling, as well as attend family counseling sessions with the kids.
However, the agreement is that the World War Z actor will be subject to random drugs and alcohol testing. Pitt’s first drug test showed he was negative for any drugs or alcohol.
