In December 2018, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt finally reached a custody agreement, bringing their two-year battle to an end. A statement released by Jolie’s attorney, Samantha Bley DeJean, said the agreement was “based on the recommendations of the child custody evaluator” and guaranteed that the children didn’t have to go through the ordeal of a trial. “The filing and details of the agreement are confidential to protect the best interests of the children,” DeJean added.
A Hollywood Life insider claimed that “Brad ended up getting more custody time than Angelina wanted him to,” but not every piece of news that’s come from Angelina’s camp since the custody announcement has been negative. In January 2019, a different source told the same outlet that all of Jolie-Pitt kids are starting to show similar traits to their father, and Angelina couldn’t be happier about it. “It warms her heart to think the kids are taking on some of the amazing qualities she fell in love with in Brad,” the insider said.
Picking up the pieces after Brangelina has been difficult, but things seem to be calming down a little. The exes reportedly met in person on two occasions in the weeks before they agreed to joint custody, which can only be a good sign. Here’s hoping the family can rediscover its happiness within these new dynamics.
