Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have yet to reach a custody agreement
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have yet to reach a custody agreement despite reports stating the contrary. A source close to the proceedings tells E! News that reports of a new custody arrangement are false.
The source states that the former couple's original court ordered agreement remains in place. According to court documents, Jolie and Pitt were scheduled to convene on Aug. 21. Our source says this meeting has been postponed. Another source tells E! News that Jolie's and Pitt's lawyers recently met to iron out details for a custody plan for the next few months, which has been "very time consuming."
The stars share six children: Maddox Jolie-Pitt17, Pax Jolie-Pitt,14, Zahara Jolie-Pitt, 13, Shiloh Jolie-Pitt, 12, Knox Jolie-Pitt, and Vivienne Jolie-Pitt, 10. Meanwhile, a third source tells E! News, "In terms of the kids' relationship with Brad, Angelina definitely remains committed to helping the kids heal with their father."
Jolie filed for divorce in September 2016, citing irreconcilable differences as the cause of the split. Just a few days later, news broke that the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services and the FBI were looking into an alleged altercation between Pitt and his eldest son Maddox.
The alleged incident reportedly took place onboard the family's private plane. Pitt has been cleared in both investigations and no charges were filed. "I was really on my back and chained to a system when Child Services was called," the actor recalled to GQ. "And you know, after that, we've been able to work together to sort this out. We're both doing our best.
