Pitt recently petitioned for joint custody of the pair’s offspring.

It seems Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have finally reached an agreement regarding the custody of their children.

Angelina Jolie wins sole custody of her and Brad Pitt’s six children

In a new statement released yesterday, it was revealed that Jolie had been granted sole custody of the couple’s six offspring.

Pitt is set to receive “therapeutic visits” from the children, despite recently filing for joint custody.

The decision was apparently made over a week ago, following a consultation with childcare professionals.

The couple’s representatives say no further details will be provided.

“We believe that all sides are committed to healing the family and ask for your consideration during this difficult time,” Jolie’s spokesperson added.

The news comes after Jolie filed for divorce earlier this year, due to irreconcilable differences and “for the health of the family”.

The pair were together for twelve and married in August 2014 – despite promising to wait until after same-sex marriage was legalised across the US, which took place over a year later in June 2015.

The Hollywood pair have six adopted and biological children together – including John Jolie-Pitt, also known as Shiloh.

Back in 2014, Jolie and Pitt announced their support for the ten-year-old to self-identify as male.

John attracted widespread attention when they appeared on the red carpet for Angelina’s film ‘Unbroken’, wearing a tuxedo and with cropped hair.

However, the family have shown full support for John’s right to explore their self-identification.

Back in 2010, Jolie said: “She wants to be a boy. So we had to cut her hair. She likes to wear boys’ everything. She thinks she’s one of the brothers.”
