It’s not the “War of the Roses” just yet. But this custody battle is not exactly pretty.
Angelina Jolie will continue having sole custody of her six children with Brad Pitt, a representative for the actress said this week.
The deal the exes struck call for the kids, who range in ages from 8 to 15, to continue to have “therapeutic visits” with Pitt for the time being.
But the bright spot for Brad: In Touch magazine reports the California Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) investigation is likely to wrap up as early as this week.
“DCFS will be formally closing the investigation after finding abso lutely no evidence to support the abuse claims” against Brad, a source close to the investigation tells the mag.
Pitt has been voluntarily submitting to drug tests, which he passed, but his visits are still supervised. In Touch adds that during his meetings, only four of the kids went.
“Maddox and Pax didn’t want to go,” an insider said.
Pitt and Jolie reached a temporary custody agreement in late September.
“We believe that all sides are committed to healing the family and ask for your consideration during this difficult time,” Monday’s statement said.
The actor is seeking joint custody.
