Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s Joint Custody Agreement Approved By a Judge

Court documents obtained by ET reveal that the estranged couple’s legal agreement was approved on Dec. 2, and grants Jolie physical custody of their six children — Maddox, 15, Pax, 13, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 8. Jolie and Pitt had previously agreed to the terms on Oct. 26.

Additionally, a team of five mental health professionals are helping the family with “safe harbor therapy.”

Meanwhile, Pitt will continue to have agreed-upon therapeutic visitations with the kids, as determined by the family’s therapist who “shall at all times consider the best interests of the minor children,” according to the documents. Pitt will also continue to participate in random drug and alcohol testing, as well as weekly individual and group therapy. The Jolie-Pitt children will also continue to participate in individual counseling.

“Originally, Pitt had volunteered to do the drug and alcohol testing himself,” a source tells ET. “But now that a judge has signed off on these docs, it has become mandatory and cannot be reversed without another court filing.”

The source also reveals, “Brad has not seen his children alone without a monitored therapist since the plane incident,” adding, “Angelina has not left the children’s side since the plane incident. She still has not completed her film [First They Killed My Father]. She has been with them the whole time trying to make sure they heal.”

As for if Pitt will see the children for the holidays, that remains unclear. “If a child says they don’t want to see Brad on Christmas, the psychiatrist isn’t going to force them,” the source says. “That’s the whole purpose of this agreement.”

A separate source tells ET that the legal custody agreement is voluntary and only temporary.

“It was agreed upon several months ago, which has continued,” the source says. The source also notes this agreement can be changed if Pitt decides to petition the court.

After looking into the aforementioned Sept. 14 plane incident, both the FBI and the Department of Child and Family Services closed their investigations into Pitt, clearing the 52-year-old actor of the child abuse accusations against him, and determining no charges would be filed.


“In response to allegations made following a flight within the special aircraft jurisdiction of the United States which landed in Los Angeles carrying Mr. Brad Pitt and his children, the FBI has conducted a review of the circumstances and will not pursue further investigation,” the FBI said in a statement to ET in November. “No charges have been filed in this matter.”

FBI clears Brad Pitt over child abuse claim

Brad Pitt has been cleared after a probe into allegations he mistreated one of his children in a mid-air altercation, the FBI said on Tuesday.

The claims centered on an alleged incident with his 15-year-old son Maddox in September on a flight from France to Los Angeles. Pitt’s wife Angelina Jolie claimed he had struck the boy.

“In response to allegations made following a flight… carrying Mr. Brad Pitt and his children, the FBI has conducted a review of the circumstances and will not pursue further investigation,” the agency said in a statement.

“No charges have been filed in this matter.”

The announcement marks Pitt’s second vindication over the incident, two weeks after Los Angeles social workers cleared the 52-year-old of wrongdoing following interviews with the couple, their children and witnesses.

Jolie, 41, filed for divorce in September, citing irreconcilable differences. She is seeking sole custody of their six children.

Pitt, who won a best film Oscar for producing “12 Years a Slave” (2013), has been in contact with all six of the couple’s children and is seeking joint legal and physical custody.

The reunions were supervised by a therapist as part of the couple’s temporary custody agreement — mediated by the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services — which was recently extended.

Under the agreement Jolie had physical custody of the children — three of whom, including Maddox, are adopted — at a rented LA house.

The A-listers — given the celebrity moniker “Brangelina” — wed in France in August two years ago, but had been a couple since 2004.

AFP reached out to Pitt’s representative, who declined to comment.

Angelina Jolie Breaks Silence On Her Divorce With Brad Pitt

Angelina Jolie has broken her silence on her split with Brad Pitt, following his first public appearance since the divorce proceedings began.

This week, Pitt was cleared of child abuse allegations, following the investigation by the Los Angeles Country Department of Children and Family Services into an incident involving his eldest son Maddox on a private plane on 14 September.

Reacting to the news, a spokesperson on behalf of Jolie released a statement:

“The job of the DCFS is to make sure the children are in a safe and secure situation. As we said earlier this week, childcare professionals encouraged a legal agreement accepted and signed by both sides that was in the best interest of the children. Angelina said from the beginning that she felt she had to take action for the health of the family and is relieved that after their 8-week involvement, the DCFS is now satisfied the safeguards are put in place that will allow the children to heal.”

When news of the breakdown of the marriage broke in September, Jolie’s attorney Robert Offer released a statement that read: “Angelina has filed for dissolution of the marriage. This decision was made for the health of the family. She will not be commenting, and asks that the family be given its privacy at this time.” This is the first time that Jolie has spoken out since.

Brad Pitt Has Reportedly Been Cleared of Child Abuse Allegations

An investigation into whether Brad Pitt was abusive toward his son on a private flight in September says the case has been closed with no finding of abuse by the actor, a source familiar with the inquiry said Wednesday.

The source, who was not authorized to speak publicly, told The Associated Press that the investigation was closed within the past few days.

Multiples sources have said the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services had been looking into allegations Pitt was abusive toward his 15-year-old son on the flight in mid-September. Pitt’s wife, Angelina Jolie Pitt, filed for divorce days after the incident, and her attorney said it was “for the health of the family.”

A department spokesman said the agency could not confirm it investigated Pitt.

Custody of the actors’ six children has been the primary issue in their divorce. Jolie Pitt is seeking sole custody of the children, while Pitt is seeking joint custody.

Pitt has had visitation with his children under terms agreed upon by the former couple. Jolie Pitt’s representatives said Monday that an agreement on custody had been reached, although a final agreement will be part of the couple’s divorce judgment when it is entered.

California law favors joint custody, although details about custody arrangements are rarely made public in celebrity divorce cases.

A representative for Jolie said the actress is relieved that the inquiry is over and that the custody arrangements in place will allow the children to heal.

A representative for Pitt declined comment.

Pitt and Jolie were married for two years and together for 12 years after becoming close while filming 2005’s “Mr. & Mrs. Smith.”

Angelina Jolie’s Childhood Nanny Claims she is Unfairly Demonising Brad Pitt

Angelina Jolie’s former nanny has broken her silence to dramatically call on the actress to end her war with husband Brad Pitt.

Devastated Krisann Morel says she is deeply concerned that the star is demonising her ex and using her children as weapons against him – just like Jolie’s mother did when she was a kid.

Morel, 63, cared for Jolie during her formative years and was close friends with her mother, Marcheline Bertrand, before she died of cancer.
She said there are startling parallels between what is happening now and the star’s own troubled childhood when her mother cut off her famous father Jon Voight – leading to years of heartache and
estrangement.
In an exclusive interview with DailyMail.com, Morel said:

 ‘I’m speaking out because I want to send a message to Angelina, who I care about very much.


I want to tell her, “Please don’t cut Brad out of the children’s lives. Don’t use the children as weapons in your divorce. And don’t demonize your husband”.
Because that is exactly what your mother did when she was breaking up with your father. And the result was you had a lonely and traumatic childhood. Why would you inflict the same tragedy on your kids?
Jolie’s parents, Marcheline Bertrand and Jon Voight split in 1977, just two years after Jolie was born. I am worried that Angie is repeating the past – repeating the same mistakes her mother made during her divorce – and I want to get this message across to her before it is too late.’

Grandmother and mother-of-one Morel opened up about 41-year-old Jolie’s troubling upbringing and how the vicious war that broke out between her mother and father still seems to affect her today.
She revealed that Bertrand could barely stand to look at her daughter when she was a baby because she looked so much like her cheating father, who ran off with a young drama student named Stacey Pickren.

And she said that the young star and her brother James Haven, 43 – raised by a coterie of nannies – were frequently used as weapons to attack their womanising dad.

Brad Pitt Releases a Second Statement on his Divorce

Last week we all heard that Angelina Jolie had filed for divorce from her husband of just two years, Brad Pitt amidst reports he is being investigated for child abuse by the LA County Department of Children and Family Services for being verbally and physically abusive with one of his children. In the second statement since his separation, the actor said he won’t be attending the red carpet screening of Voyage of Time, a documentary he narrated which is happening tomorrow.

“Terrence’s ‘Voyage of Time’ is an incredibly beautiful and unique experiential IMAX film for children and families chronicling the birth of time. I’m very grateful to be part of such a fascinating and educational project, but I’m currently focused on my family situation and don’t want to distract attention away from this extraordinary film, which I encourage everyone to see.” – He told Access Hollywood

 

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s Prenup Details Revealed; Custody Battle May Get Messy

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie signed an ‘ironclad’ prenup before tying the knot in 2014. Its details have just been revealed as well as the fact that the real battle between Brad and Angelina will be over the custody of their children.

According to TMZ, Brad and Jolie signed a prenuptial agreement that outlines exactly who gets what before they wed back in 2014.

Their combined fortune is a reported $400 million. Brad & Jolie have 12 total properties together all of which they acquired either before they were married or before they were even dating.

7 of those properties belong to Brad, 2 to Angie and 3 which they bought together prior to tying the


knot in 2014.

The properties they bought together include a vineyard in France, a mansion in New Orleans, and an apartment in New York – and the pair’s prenup outlines exactly who gets what property.

Rather than properties being an issue in the divorce, TMZ reports that custody of their kids will be where the war really plays out. Brad plans on fighting for joint physical custody of their children while Jolie is kicking against it.

Brad and Angelina are parents to six kids – Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, ten, Knox, eight, and Vivienne, eight.

 

Angelina Jolie Reportedly Blocks Brad Pitt’s Numbers

It’s been almost a week since Angelina Jolie quietly filed for divorce from Brad Pitt and the entire world threw a tantrum and screamed “love is dead!” before moving on to post about the three fictional characters they’re a combination of. Well, it turns out there’s one person who’s not ready to call it quits: Brad Pitt.

A source told Us Weekly that Angelina has blocked all incoming text messages and all of Brad’s numbers, and he’s upset.

“He is beside himself and has been crying,” the source said. “He was completely caught off-guard and blindsided and had no idea she would do this. Angelina filed the court papers a minute before the courts closed on Monday night. He didn’t have a lawyer or anything. She had threatened divorce in the past but he did not think she would file this time.”

Another thing Brad probably didn’t know? That Angelina rented another house in Malibu before she filed for divorce. Or maybe he did know. We don’t know anything about their relationship, but I’m sure the sources and speculation will continue as the days and weeks move forward.

Brad Pitt’s Argument with Son Maddox Led to Angelina Jolie Filing for Divorce

TMZ reports:

Sources familiar with the situation tell us, Brad, Angelina and their kids were on a flight last Wednesday when he allegedly got wasted on the private jet. He allegedly went wild, screaming and getting physical with the kids.

We’re told the plane landed at an airport around 8 PM, and witnesses say Pitt continued his rant on the tarmac, and even tried leaving in one of the fuel trucks.

Our sources say someone either on the plane or the tarmac anonymously reported the incident to the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services. We’re told Brad and Angelina have already been interviewed and DCFS plans to interview the kids as well. That investigation is ongoing.

We’re also told the LAPD has the case … which is routine when anyone reports child abuse. We do not know the specifics of the alleged abuse … just that it was supposedly both verbal and physical.

Our sources say this incident triggered Jolie to separate from Brad the next day and file for divorce just days later.

A source close to Brad tells TMZ, “He takes the matter very seriously and says he did not commit any abuse of his children,” adding, “It’s unfortunate that people involved are continuing to present him 

‘Brad, You Married A F***ing Lunatic!’ – Chelsea Handler Disses Angelina On Her Show

Jen’s pal Chelsea Handler ripped into Angelina Jolie on her Netflix comedy show Tuesday night and called out Brad Pitt for getting involved with her in the first place.

The outspoken TV host characterized the Maleficent star as ‘a f*ing lunatic’ who had driven her husband to booze and pot as an escape.

In a segment about the shock split, which she tweeted out on Wednesday, Handler said: ‘There are rumors that part of the problem was that Brad was allegedly drinking and smoking too 
much weed. I wonder why he would need to self-medicate.’

She went on: ‘Maybe because he could have been spending the last 12 years at Lake Como hanging out with George Clooney and Matt Damon, instead of being stuck in a house with 85 kids speaking 15 different languages.’

‘Oh yeah, because he married a f*ing lunatic,

Handler, 41, is a longtime pal of the former Friends star, 45, and was among the guests at her wedding last year to actor Justin Theroux.

Angelina Jolie’s ‘Diary Confessions’ Leaks, Fires Nanny For Flirting With Brad Pitt Amid Rumors Of Divorce, Sex & Drugs

Angelina Jolie was recently rumored to have been “flirting nonstop” with her husband Brad Pitt’s young look-alike cameraman. Now a report by Radar Online claims that Jolie fired one of her children’s “gorgeous” nannies because she was caught flirting with the star’s husband.

The nanny started to have a close friendship with Pitt, after which Jolie began suspecting her, Radar Online reported. “Angie was happy with the team she had assembled and handpicked to be around her and the kids. Of course lots of people want to work for a famous movie star, but they put them through a very strict filtering process,” a source told the gossip website.

“Brad was going in and out of Cambodia as his schedule would allow. He is always well-liked by the staff and friendly with them, but it became obvious the nanny was flirting around him and being a little too friendly,” the insider added, according to Radar Online.

The 40-year-old noticed that the nanny was always near the pool at the same time Pitt would be there, according to the report. “Her paranoia grew even further when she saw him fresh out of the shower wrapped in just a towel, getting some juice while the nanny was also in the kitchen with a big smile on her face. That was the final straw for Angie,” the source revealed to Radar Online. “She confronted the nanny and a huge screaming match erupted. Of course, she didn’t hesitate to pull the trigger, and the nanny packed her things and was gone faster than you could imagine,” the insider added.

The A-list couple, together for over 10 years, has been fighting divorce rumors for some time now. However, they have been spotted together on several occasions, shunning reports about their marriage troubles.

Another rumor that 52-year-old Pitt was moving into a bachelor pad in London without informing Jolie was debunked. A source reportedly told OK! Magazine that Pitt is secretly shopping for his own house in England without informing Jolie. “Brad’s thinking time apart is exactly what they need,” the insider reportedly said.

Gossip Cop, the website which debunks celebrity rumors, had dismissed another Jolie-Pitt rumor, which claimed that the husband and wife were on the verge of breaking up over her alleged sex and drugs “diary confessions.” A National Enquirer report said that Pitt has been bothered by reminders of his wife’s past problems, including “heroin binges” and “kinky sex games.”

Angelina Jolie And Brad Pitt: Art Teacher Gives Rare Glimpse Inside Couple’s Family Life.

An Indigenous art teacher has given a fascinating insight inside Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s home life. When Bibi Barba was invited to teach an art class for a mysterious “very high-profile” client’s children, she never expected the door to be opened by world-famous star Angelina and her six children, Maddox, 13, Pax, 11, Zahara, ten, Shiloh, eight and six-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.

Speaking to Australia’s Woman’s Day, Bibi recalled the moment she arrived at James Packer’s $40million Sydney mansion where the world-famous family were staying in secret for the premiere of Unbroken last year.

Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt Support Shiloh’s Wish To Be Called “John”

Angelina Jolie’s entire family recently stepped out on the red carpet to support their mother’s new movie, Unbroken. The couple’s oldest biological child, who was assigned female at birth, joined brothers Maddox and Pax wearing sharp suits and short haircuts.

Pitt and Jolie have been fairly open over the years about Shiloh’s interest in all things considered masculine. In an interview with Oprah in 2008, Brad Pitt discussed how Shiloh wanted to be called John.

The eight-year-old’s family fully supports their decision to self-identify — from an affinity for suits and ties to shorter hair to the name change. (Editor’s Note: We have followed the Advocate‘s lead, and referred to John Jolie-Pitt as “they” as a gender-neutral pronoun to respect John’s decision, whatever gender they may end up being.)

Jolie told Vanity Fair in a 2010 interview that John has been exploring their identity since the age of three. “She wants to be a boy,” Jolie said. “So we had to cut her hair. She likes to wear boys’ everything. She thinks she’s one of the brothers.” The Telegraph used the Pitt-Jolie story as an opportunity to educate adults on how to handle a child’s cross-gender explorations. It’s easy to dismiss a child’s tendency to gravitate toward toys and clothing generally assigned to its opposite gender as a phase.

Angelina Jolie Calls Marriage to Brad Pitt “Hard Work”

After almost 10 years together,Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt finally became husband and wife this past August, but the Unbroken director said in a new interview that life as a married couple is not always easy and bright.

“Maintaining a marriage and raising kids is hard work,” Jolie, 39, told The Australian Women’s Weekly. “[Pitt and I] work really hard at nurturing our family to make sure that everybody is alright and everyone stays connected.”

“You have to really make sure that your work doesn’t get in the way,” Jolie added. “That you don’t do something that is going to put too much strain on your family.”

 

#GhenGhen: Jennifer Aniston Planning to “Fight” Angelina Jolie For Stealing Brad Pitt

Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt broke up nearly a decade ago, but apparently the actress still has some ill will for the woman who came between them.

 Pitt left Aniston for actress Angelina Jolie back in 2005, and since then Brad and Angelina have started a family, while Jen has bounced from relationship to relationship. Jennifer and Angelina have mostly avoided each other in the years since then, but they appear to be headed for a showdown in just a matter of weeks.

Many believe Aniston will get a Golden Globe nomination for her work in Cake, while both Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are expected to get nominations as well (Angelina for Unbroken and Brad for Fury).

Sources tell InTouch Weekly that Jennifer Aniston is planning to confront Angelina at the award festivities. The source said that Jen plans to “look her straight in the eye and tell her how she really feels.”

The latest animosity reportedly stems from an interview Brad did with comedian Zach Galifianakis in which he appeared to mock his marriage to Jennifer Aniston.

But the confrontation has been a long time coming, the source added.

“She is nervous to the point of being sick over the prospect of coming face-to-face with Brad and Angie,” the source said. “But she has waited a decade for this.”

While Jennifer Aniston is planning a long-awaited confrontation with Angelina Jolie, she also has her own relationship problems to deal with. Several media outlets have reported trouble between Jen and fiance Justin Theroux, including rumors that they may not get married at all.

Several times, rumors have indicated that Aniston and Theroux were breaking off their engagement, including a recent report that Jen caught him flirting with other women.

“There are bound to be rumors about their engagement, when they spend so much time apart,” a British magazine quoted a source close to the couple. “Justin’s been caught out referring to Jen as his ‘girlfriend’ or ‘partner’ rather than his fiancée, which has led some in their circles to wonder whether a wedding will ever materialize.”

If Jennifer Aniston does plan to confront Angelina Jolie, she has some time to plan her attack. The Golden Globe awards are still close to two months away.
