It has been nearly two years since Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt filed for divorce. Once the hottest couple in Hollywood, Brangelina is now officially no more. While they've each moved on to different projects, they've finally come to a custody agreement with their six children. As it has been revealed this week, the A-list celebrity couple have come up with an agreement -- at least, for the summer. According to the legal documents, the judge feels it's important for children to have strong relationships with both parents, and therefore, Pitt and Jolie will split time spent with their children accordingly.
According to the court documents obtained by E! News, Brad Pitt will have custody of his kids from June 8th through June 17th for four hours per day while he's in London. Angelina Jolie also has a rental home there. Then from June 27th to July 1st, Pitt will have custody for 10 hours per day. He'll also have custody of the children in late July as well, though it's not exactly clear what those hours will be. This agreement is related to the youngest of their six children, which includes 14-year-old Pax, 13-year-old Zahara, 12-year-old Shiloh and their 9-year-old twins, Vivienne and Knox. Their oldest child, Maddox, is 16. Therefore, he's old enough to determine how much time he wants to spend with each respective high-profile parent -- according to the eyes of the law.
At the moment, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are both keeping themselves busy with their own respective projects. Jolie is currently in London filming Maleficent 2, which began production in late May. Pitt, meanwhile, is currently working on the newest Quentin Tarantino movie, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, which reunites the actor with his Inglorious Basterds director. Despite their torn home life, Pitt and Jolie remain busy-as-ever with their own individual projects, which reportedly caused some friction in the custody agreement. Jolie allegedly wanted to have the children stay in Europe for the entirety of the summer, but Pitt wouldn't agree to that because he was in Los Angeles filming the new Tarantino joint. The judge seemed sympathetic to Pitt's case, as made evident by this agreement, and Pitt reportedly felt heard in his side of the agreement. In the original agreement, Pitt was allowed one phone call a week and supervised visitation.
A source close to Brad Pitt claimed that the actor is "fully immersed" in his work with Quentin Tarantino in their latest collaboration together, although he found a way to work out a schedule that allows him to film the new movie while also spending quality time with his children. Pitt is apparently not working every day on the shoot, so there's at least some flexibility in which he can spend time with the children.
Meanwhile, a source close to Angelina Jolie claims the actress is "fine" with the judge's decision, and while she's at least a little bit "exasperated" by all the drama, she wants what's best for her children.
