Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have reportedly reached a temporary agreement in their ongoing custody dispute over their six children.
Two weeks after Angelina Jolie filed documents to end her marriage to the 52-year-old actor, Pitt has reportedly been placed on supervised visitation with his kids, Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 8, as a child abuse investigation against him continues.
“He can’t stand the fact that he has to have supervised visits with his children,” a source told Hollywood Life on October 2. “He’s playing along but he is so insulted and he can’t believe how drastically his life changed in a matter of weeks.”
The outlet explained that Angelina Jolie had been granted her request for full custody of the children, but noted that the arrangement was only temporary. Hollywood Life also said that Pitt has every intention of fighting for joint custody of the children as their case continues.

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt began their romance on the set of Mr. & Mrs. Smith when Pitt was still married to Jennifer Aniston. Then, just a short time after the Friends actress filed for divorce, the couple went public in Kenya with Maddox, who Pitt eventually adopted.
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt welcomed three kids biologically during their 12-year relationship and also share three children through adoption. However, they didn’t decide to get married until August 23, 2014, about a decade after their relationship began. Then, just two years after their wedding, Jolie terminated their relationship, which has reportedly left their kids “devastated.”
“The kids are devastated and confused about why their parents are suddenly apart,” a source explained to Hollywood Life on October 1. “They are all nagging [Angelina Jolie] to get back together with their dad and have everything be back to normal.”
Angelina Jolie claimed in her divorce documents that her husband was suffering from an anger issue, which had reportedly become dangerous for their children. It was then suggested that Pitt may have gotten physical with their oldest son, Maddox, during a dispute on their private plane in mid-September.
Following news of the alleged fight, Pitt was targeted with a child abuse investigation but his wife, Jolie, has reportedly been insisting that he doesn’t face criminal charges. Instead, the actress is focused on keeping her family safe, which is why she requested full physical custody in her court documents.
As part of Angelina Jolie’s temporary custody agreement with Pitt, the actor has agreed to submit to random drug tests and spend time with his kids with a therapist present.
In another report, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s possible reunion was discussed. However, while Pitt is reportedly still in love with his wife, she may not feel the same.
“He’s still in love with [Angelina Jolie],” a source previously told Hollywood Life. “He’s in zero rush to start another relationship, and has no interest in a rebound type thing.”

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were said to have parted ways on September 15, just one day after his alleged feud with Maddox. Days later, Jolie filed for divorce and enlisted Johnny Depp’s divorce lawyer, Laura Wasser, as her attorney.
While Pitt and Jolie have agreed to a temporary arrangement for their six children, they still have a lot to figure out when it comes to their future as co-parents. Unfortunately, with so much on the line, this divorce may get ugly fast.
