Divorcing Hollywood power couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have reached a final agreement over the custody of their six children, Jolie's lawyer said on Friday, after more than two years of often bitter negotiations. "A custody arrangement was agreed to weeks ago, and has been signed by both parties and the judge," Jolie's lawyer Samantha Bley DeJean said in a statement to Reuters. "The agreement, which is based on the recommendations of the child custody evaluator, eliminates the need for a trial. The filing and details of the agreement are confidential to protect the best interests of the children." Representatives of Pitt had no immediate comment. Jolie and Pitt, once one of Hollywood's most glamorous couples, separated in September 2016 after a more than 10-year romance and two-year marriage. Jolie, who filed for divorce citing irreconcilable differences, had been seeking primary custody of their six children, three of whom are the couple's … [Read more...] about Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie reach custody agreement over their children

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have finally reached an agreement over the custody of their six children. The former Hollywood power couple, who are parents to Maddox, 17, Pax, 15, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, and 10-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne, had been locked in bitter negotiations for two years. "A custody arrangement was agreed to weeks ago, and has been signed by both parties and the judge," Angelina's lawyer Samantha Bley DeJean said in a statement on Friday.

A temporary deal last year gave him visitation rights to Maddox, 17, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, and Vivienne and Knox, 10. They agreed to custody sharing, with Brad having access and working with Angelina on logistic issues about work and travel. In August 2018, Angelina filed new documents claiming that Brad is failing to pay her "meaningful child support” and has not even lived up to an “informal arrangement” they set up. However, the Fight Club star soon hit back by revealing he has given his soon-to-be ex-wife £7m since their split "to assist her in purchasing her current residence" and £900k in child support. In November 2018 it was revealed that December 4 has been set as the date for the start of a custody trial after the two reportedly reached an interim custody agreement in the late summer. Negotiations now appear to have broken down, and next month, the A-list couple will ask a judge to rule on the battle over their six … [Read more...] about Why did Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie split, who has custody of their children and how much did the divorce cost?
Poor Angelina Jolie. It can’t be easy trying to scrape together a living on her multi-million dollar earnings with no fewer than six children to care for. The last thing she needs is her ex-husband, Brad Pitt, paying “no meaningful child support since separation,” as she alleged in a court filing made on Tuesday. Pitt, for his part, countered that he had in fact paid more than $1.3m (£1m) in costs, and loaned $8m to Jolie to help her buy a house. By which point in the saga - and it’s now been two years since the two A-list actors separated - you’d be forgiven for walking away from the whole sorry spectacle, shaking your head and muttering, “Celebrities! They don’t know they’re born.” To those...

Since September 2016, when Oscar-winner Jolie began divorce proceedings against her husband of two years, whom she had been with for a total of 12, things were clearly acrimonious between from the get-go. There was a well-documented, but still unclear, "incident" with 16-year-old son Maddox aboard a private plane which is said to have prompted her decision to file, and the Department of Child and Family Services and FBI got involved. "There was a parent-child argument which was not handled in the right way and escalated more than it should have," a source told People at the time. "He is emphatic that it did not reach the level of physical abuse, that no one was physically harmed. He did not hit his child in the face in any way. He did not do that; he is emphatic about that. He put his hands on him, yes, because the confrontation was spiraling out of control." In an interview six months alter, he gave an interview to GQ detailing his experience, saying he was "really on my back" when … [Read more...] about Explainer: What is the latest (and why it’s happening) with Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s very dramatic divorce?
