Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie Strike Temporary Custody Agreement
The saga that is Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s divorce is slowly coming to an end. The longtime couple, who announced they were ending their two-year marriage last week, have reportedly struck a temporary custody agreement as they continue to hash out the rest of their divorce proceedings.
After reviewing the case, the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services recommended a series of rules for the couple to comply. According to TMZ, Pitt and Jolie both agreed to the measure, which will last three weeks before the DCFS will impose new rules or hand over the case to court.
The temporary custody agreement states that Jolie will get full custody of their six children. Pitt has been granted visitations with certain specifications, including that a therapist must be present during his initial visit and that the therapist has the power to choose if Pitt’s visits should remain monitored. The actor, who has been accused of having problems with alcohol and weed, will also be subjected random drug and alcohol testings for the next three weeks.
The agreement also says both Jolie and Pitt will each submit to individual counseling, as well as join their six children for family counseling together.
Jolie filed for divorce on Sept. 19 after Pitt allegedly had a physical altercation with one of the kids during a flight from France to the U.S. She cited irreconcilable differences and asked for sole physical custody of their children.
