LOS ANGELES – Hollywood stars Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have arrived at an agreement over the custody of their children, eliminating the need for a trial, the actresses lawyer said late Friday.
Samantha Bley DeJean, who represents Jolie, gave a statement to television program Entertainment Tonight.
“A custody arrangement was agreed to weeks ago, and has been signed by both parties and the judge,” lawyer Bley DeJean said in a statement to the TV program.
Details of the agreement are yet to be made known.
People magazine, citing a source close to the celebrities, said that it was only a temporary agreement and not a permanent one; however, Jolie’s lawyer did not mention anything in this regard.
Jolie and Pitt have six children: Zahara, 13; Shiloh, 12; the twins Vivienne and Knox, 10; Maddox, 16, and Pax, 14.
Jolie and Pitt, who were among the most admired and powerful couples of Hollywood, have for months been negotiating an out-of-court custody agreement, thus avoiding a trial.
The first hearing before a judge was to be held on Dec. 4.
After more than a decade together and barely two years after getting married, Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt in September 2016.
