Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt reach custody agreement

A statement has been released

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt aka Brangelina have come to an agreement with who will have sole custody of her six children.

A representative for Angelina has reported that the couple's children, who rang in ages from eight to 15, will continue to stay with their mother.

Brad will continue to have 'therapeutic visits'.

This comes after it was reported that Pax and Shiloh are asking to stay with their dad.

A source has told OK! magazine: “Recently, Pax and Shiloh told Angelina that they’d prefer to live with their father.”

“Pax and Shiloh have always had a strong bond and both of them have long felt more compatible, emotionally, with Brad."

...all sides are committed to healing the family

The actress filed for divorce in September, says after Pitt was said to be involved in a disturbance during a private flight with his family. Angelina cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the breakup and was said to be 'for the health of the family.'

A statement for the Maleficent actress said: "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,' the rep continued. "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," Monday's statement concluded.

TMZ claims the custody arrangement is only temporary until the Department of Children and Family Services closes its investigation.

The website reports that the agreement is simply an extension of a prior arrangement reached by the estranged couple with Pitt having monitored visitations with the children under the guidance of a therapist as the DCFS continues its investigation.

TMZ also claimed that the agreement was extended last week but is not a settlement nor does it bear on Pitt's filing for joint custody.

Brad had originally asked for joint physical and legal custody of his six children, which appears to conflict with the statement.

It looks like Ange got her way.
