Report: Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s Divorce Isn’t Actually Settled
The original report was published by Associated Press, who said Pitt and Jolie had reached an agreement that involved family therapy. TMZ cites sources familiar with the situation who they say “scoffed” at the report.
The real agreement was to extend the temporary arrangement already in place until the L.A. County Department of Children and Therapy finishes its investigation. That’s not a settlement.
As things stand now, Jolie has physical custody of the couple’s children while Pitt has visitation rights, which will be monitored by a therapist. A real settlement regarding permanent custody arrangements will come from a family court judge after the investigation is complete.
TMZ points out that Pitt only asked for joint custody last Friday (Nov. 4, 2016), so a permanent settlement could not have possibly been reached yet.
