Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie remain in the spotlight with their divorce. The famous pair announced their decision to file for divorce last month, but rumors regarding their split have remained on. Now, it seems that Angelina and Brad could reach a settlement on the custody of their six children.
The pair initially reached a temporary custody agreement, but this agreement will expire next week. This means that the famous pair has to reach a definitive deal on how to manage the custody of the kids. Initially, Angelina sought the sole physical custody of the children, but several reports claimed that most likely the pair will finally be granted joint custody.
The joint custody deal could also be reached as the child abuse case against Brad Pitt is expected to be dropped soon. Apparently, authorities haven’t got sufficient evidence to prosecute the actor, so the case might be dismissed due to the lack of proof. Brad has been investigated on child abuse allegations after the actor allegedly physically and verbally abused one of the children during an incident that occurred on a plane.
This altercation is said to have occurred in September, on the former couple’s private plane. The child that was said to have been abused is Maddox. Some reports claimed that Maddox was just trying to defend his mother. One day after this incident, Angelina and the children moved out of the house she shared with Brad into a rental. About three days later, she filed for divorce and claimed that she made this decision for the health of the family, without providing any other details.
The reason of the separation has also been widely debated in the media. Some reports said that Brad had cheated on his wife, while others claimed that the actress was the one who met someone else and has been having an affair for quite some time. Some sources claimed that Brad and Angelina separated because of their different views on how to raise their children. Brad was also accused of alcohol and drug abuse.
