Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie divorce rumours confirmed in announcement that shocks Hollywood...
Angelina Jolie shocked the celeb world when she filed for divorce from husband Brad Pitt in September.
The couple are said to have come to blows over their six children. Jolie filed the legal documents citing irreconcilable differences.
There is no “third party” cited in the divorce. Sources close to the couple said her decision was based solely on Brad’s interaction with their children. So, naturally, Angelina stated that she was seeking custody of the children.
The Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie divorce proceedings now seem to have reached a stage where the couple have agreed on a temporary plan for their kids. Their six children, Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and 8-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne will remain with Angelina. Although it has been confirmed by a rep that Brad, who retains shared legal custody, will have visitation rights. Despite filing for divorce and sole-custody of their six children, the actress is not said to be seeking spousal support.
The statement from the rep reads:
“We can confirm that childcare professionals have encouraged a legal agreement accepted and signed by both sides over a week ago. In accordance with this agreement, the six children will stay in their mother’s custody, and the children will continue therapeutic visits with their father. We are not in a position to discuss the details. We believe that all sides are committed to healing the family and ask for your consideration during this difficult time.”
According to an insider close to Jolie, the agreement is not temporary. “There is no expiration date on the agreement,” the insider explained to American magazine US Weekly. “The only way for this agreement to change is if both parties agree to a change or Brad must file a completely new motion to go to court.”
However the insider also revealed that Brad, “is going to stand firm on sharing custody of the kids.”
The couple married in August 2014, but have been together since 2004, after meeting on the set of Mr & Mrs Smith. They celebrated their second wedding anniversary in August after marrying at Chateau Miraval in France in 2014. They were last spotted out and about together in July. The summer outing in West Hollywood was a birthday breakfast for twins, Knox and Vivienne.
