Jolie , Pitt reach custody agreement
Los Angeles, Dec 7 (IANS) Estranged Hollywood couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have agreed the actress will get sole custody of their children.
The estranged couple have been locked in a bitter war over their six children Maddox, 15, Pax, 13, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and eight-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne since the beginning of September but, according to court documents, a judge has granted the 41-year-old actress sole legal guardianship of her kids, reports femalfeirst.co.uk.
According to the legal paperwork obtained by ‘Entertainment Tonight’, the 52-year-old Pitt will continue to have “therapeutic visitations” with the children, as previously agreed on October 2, but it’ll be down to the family’s therapist – who “shall at all times consider the best interests of the minors” – whether the kids want to see him.
The judge has also made it mandatory for Pitt to participate in random drug and alcohol testing, something he previously volunteered to do on an ad hoc basis, as well as attend weekly individual and group therapy sessions with a counsellor.
“Originally, Pitt had volunteered to do the drug and alcohol testing himself. But now that a judge has signed off on these docs, it has become mandatory and cannot be reversed without another court filing,” said a source.
