Brad Pitt Sees His Children for the First Time Since Divorce Announcement
Brad Pitt has seen some of his children for the first time since news broke of his and Angelina Jolie‘s divorce, E! News confirms. Pitt visited them on Oct. 8, and there was a monitor present; however, not all of his kids were there.
This news comes almost a week after E! News learned that Jolie and Pitt came to a temporary custody agreement that gave Jolie temporary sole custody of their six kids while Pitt received visitation rights. According to a source familiar with the voluntary agreement, both parents agreed to participate in individual counseling, and Pitt’s initial visit with his children would be with a therapist, though nothing has been mandated for supervision or monitoring.
But a second source told us that a therapist would be present for any and all visits until Oct. 20. The actor has also volunteered to complete drug and alcohol testing, but was not required.
Since Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt on Sept. 19, it appeared that it would be anything but smooth sailing. DCFS continues to investigate allegations that Pitt was involved in an incident with a child aboard a private plane earlier this month, but an insider told us that the Allied star’s main concern is his children and their wellbeing.
“He really wants to see the kids and to work out an arrangement that is best for them,” an insider previously told us. “[He] wants to work things out privately and amicably.”
Jolie, we were told, doesn’t intend for this custody agreement to become permanent; she believes it’s what’s necessary right now and knows she and Pitt will need to co-parent together in the future. Previously, a source reiterated that her primary focus is the wellbeing of her children.
Us Weekly was first to report the news.
