[USA], Dec 1 (ANI): Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have come to a temporary child custody agreement, two years after they announced separation.

A source told People that, "It is not permanent but rather a temporary agreement in place, for now, to keep things moving along in the right direction."

Jolie's attorney spoke to Entertainment Tonight and stated that their agreement was reached weeks ago.

"A custody agreement was agreed to weeks ago, and has been signed by both parties and the judge," Jolie's attorney, Samantha Bley DeJean said.

"The agreement, which is based on the recommendations of the child custody evaluator, eliminates the need for a trial. The filing and the details of the agreement are confidential to protect the best interests of the children," she continued.

The news comes just a few days before a trial was set to begin. According to court documents obtained by E! News, the custody trial would begin on Tuesday.

"They're still working together towards an out of court settlement. Angelina is not seeking sole custody of the kids, she still supports the reconciliation of the children with their father," an insider shared with E! News.

Eventually, both the parties were able to come together for their six children including Maddox (17), Pax (14), Zahara (13), Shiloh (12), and 10-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox.

Jolie and Pitt had met on the sets of 2005 thriller 'Mr. & Mrs Smith' and got married in 2014. Jolie filed for divorce back in September 2016 citing incompatibility and irreconcilable differences. Alos, it was alleged that Brad misbehaviour with their son Maddox.

Earlier, Jolie alleged that ex-husband Pitt has not paid any 'meaningful' child support since their split in 2016. She also accused Pitt of being a careless father. In his defence, the 'Ocean's Eleven' star said that he filed for a loan of 8 million USD to help Jolie buy a house.

Since the split, both of them have focused on various projects in and out of the Hollywood limelight. As for Brad's dating life, all things appear to be quiet for the Hollywood actor.

There were some speculations of Brad dating an MIT professor Neri Oxman, however, the truth was ultimately revealed that the two are just friends and were never romantically involved. (ANI)
