Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt Custody Battle Near Settled

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are reportedly close to making an agreement over the custody of their six children.

The former couple – who split in September 2016 – had been due to take their dispute to a private trial next month but they are close to finalizing an arrangement over the care of their six children, Maddox, 17, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, and 10-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.

According to The Blast, the pair has agreed the ongoing fight is hurting the children so want to tie up the issue and avoid the pain of a lengthy court battle. Thank goodness that the couple has finally come to their senses and we can all move on!

Though Angelina, 43, had originally wanted sole custody of the kids and is said to have fought for Pitt to get “minimal” time with his brood, the agreement will include a “substantial” amount of time given to Brad, 54.

With a custody deal close to being agreed, the former couple will now be turning their attention to the financial part of their divorce, with hundreds of millions of dollars in property and cash to be divided.

The couple split up back in 2016.
