Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt finally settle custody battle over their six children.

Divorcing stars Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have arrived at an agreement over the custody of their children, eliminating the need for a trial.

Jolie’s lawyer Samantha Bley DeJean gave a statement to television program Entertainment Tonight late on Friday.

“A custody arrangement was agreed to weeks ago, and has been signed by both parties and the judge,” Bley DeJean said in the statement.

Details of the agreement are yet to be made known.

Jolie and Pitt have six children: Zahara, 13; Shiloh, 12; the twins Vivienne and Knox, 10; Maddox, 16, and Pax, 14.

Jolie and Pitt, who were among the most admired and powerful couples of Hollywood, have for months been negotiating an out-of-court custody agreement, thus avoiding a trial.

The first hearing before a judge was to be held on December 4.

After more than a decade together and barely two years after getting married, Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt in September 2016.
