Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie Reached A Custody Deal Already
Barely two hours ago I reported that Angelina Jolie hired the real-life Olivia Pope to do some sort of stuff with her divorce, and now comes word that she’s already reached a temporary custody agreement with Brad Pitt, so I guess watch Scandal if you need legal advice. That seems to be the lesson here. TMZ reports:
Sources familiar with the situation tell us, DCFS has made its recommendations and Brad and Angelina had 2 options … agree or fight it out in court. We’re told they both agreed with DCFS.
Here are the terms of the temporary agreement:
– Angelina gets full physical custody of the 6 kids.
– Brad gets visitation, with strings attached. The initial visit is with a therapist present and the therapist then has the power to either allow Brad subsequent unmonitored visits or insist on being present whenever he’s around the kids.
– Brad is subject to random drug/alcohol testing. As we reported, Angelina believes Brad has issues with alcohol and weed. Our law enforcement sources say Brad’s first test was negative for drugs and alcohol.
– Brad and Angelina will each submit to individual counseling. In addition, Brad, Angelina and the kids will undergo family counseling together.
Keep in mind, this is exactly what Angelina Jolie wanted from the jump. A temporary period where she has full custody of the kids until Brad get his shit together. Which he’s not only agreed to by submitting to counseling, but so has the entire family including Angelina, so basically everyone wins here. Brad gets to see the kids and not have his skin flayed off his body and crisped in the sun, which it was looking like there for a minute, the kids get to see their dad – there have been reports that Zahara, Shiloh, and the twins are taking this shit hard – and maybe later today Kate Hudson will also take something hard from a magically still alive Brad Pitt. There’s hope in a hopeless world, my friends. We shall overcome! Or just Kate Hudson will. Whatever, it’s Friday.
