According to Angelina Jolie‘s rep, the Academy Award-winner, 41, and her soon-to-be ex-husband Brad Pitt have reached a custody agreement involving their six children – Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and 8-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.
“We can confirm that childcare professionals have encouraged a legal agreement accepted and signed by both sides over a week ago. In accordance with this agreement, the six children will stay in their mother’s custody, and the children will continue therapeutic visits with their father. This has been determined by childcare professionals to be in the children’s best interest,” Jolie’s rep said in a Tuesday statement to PEOPLE.
The statement continued: “We are not in a position to discuss the details. We hope now that it is clear that the events which led to the dissolution filing involved minor children and their wellbeing, there will be understanding of the sensitivity of the family situation. We believe that all sides are committed to healing the family and ask for your consideration during this difficult time.”
However, sources say the A-listers have not reached any new agreement, nor have they permanently settled their differences.
In contradiction to Jolie’s public statement, last week Pitt, 52, reportedly filed for joint physical and joint legal custody of their big brood.
On Sept. 19, the Maleficent actress filed for divorce and requested sole physical custody of their children with visitation rights for Pitt.
And in October, the former couple agreed to a temporary plan involving counseling and visitation as recommended by the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services.
