Angelina Jolie’s dramatic fight with Brad Pitt over the custody of the child army has been settled. At least that’s what they want you to believe (but more on that in a second).
Shortly after Angelina called it quits with Brad, a custody battle broke out. Angelina had temporary full physical custody, Brad wanted joint. Yesterday we learned that Angelina was going to fight veneered tooth and polished nail for primary custody of their 6 children until Brad starts looking at his life, looking at his choices and cools it with the weed and booze. It appears Angelina got what she wanted. According to a statement released by her rep, Angelina and Brad have signed all the necessary papers to give her primary physical custody.
“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. This has been determined by childcare professionals to be in the children’s best interest.
We are not in a position to discuss the details. We hope now that it is clear that the events which led to the dissolution filing involved minor children and their well being, there will be understanding of the sensitivity of the family situation. We believe that all sides are committed to healing the family and ask for your consideration during this difficult time.”
“We are not in the position to discuss the details…but if you wait a couple hours, a ‘source’ will eventually leak them all to TMZ” – right Angelina’s team?
So according to that statement, Angelina will take care of the kids and Brad will keep having therapist-supervised visits with their kids, and everything is fine for now. Or not. TMZ is calling BS on Angelina’s statement. Sources tell TMZ that they haven’t settled anything and he still wants joint custody of the kids. TMZ claims that whatever “settlement” Angelina and Brad recently came to is just an extension of the temporary custody agreement they had and won’t be a permanent thing until the L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services closes their investigation.
Personally, I hope that they did come to a settlement, if only because I’m getting a little tired of all these custody fight “sources.” Like, we get it, Brad smells like a Willie Nelson’s tour bus bathroom and Angelina is a vicious pit viper in human skin who gets off on making Brad look bad. At least give us some new details. Like, how long of a “duuuude” does Brad let out when he takes that first hit off his bong? Is Angelina the type of snake who attacks her prey with poisonous fangs or squeezes them to death? Please settle these things for me, sources.
