Pitt filed his response
to Jolie’s divorce petition on Friday and requested joint custody of the couple’s six children: 15-year-old Maddox, 12-year-old Pax, 11-year-old Zahara, 10-year-old Shiloh, and 8-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne. Jolie initially requested full custody in her filing in September
A source close to the Jolie-Pitt child custody dispute tells ET that the agreement referenced in Jolie's rep statement is not permanent. The agreement that is currently in place -- and agreed upon by the couple -- is only temporary until Pitt and Jolie continue to work out a more permanent child custody settlement.
“Unlike Jolie’s side, Brad’s side is actually attempting to abide by the confidentiality agreement that both parties signed, something Angelina’s side has no interest in doing,” the source tells ET. “From the beginning, Brad only wants to do what’s best for the children, and that’s not fighting this in the public press.”
