LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – Divorcing Hollywood power couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have reached a final agreement over the custody of their six children, Jolie’s lawyer said on Friday, after more than two years of often bitter negotiations.
“A custody arrangement was agreed to weeks ago, and has been signed by both parties and the judge,” Jolie’s lawyer Samantha Bley DeJean said in a statement to Reuters.
“The agreement, which is based on the recommendations of the child custody evaluator, eliminates the need for a trial. The filing and details of the agreement are confidential to protect the best interests of the children.”
Representatives of Pitt had no immediate comment.
Jolie and Pitt, once one of Hollywood’s most glamorous couples, separated in September 2016 after a more than 10-year romance and two-year marriage. Jolie, who filed for divorce citing irreconcilable differences, had been seeking primary custody of their six children, three of whom are the couple’s biological children and three of whom are adopted.
Friday’s statement did not say how custody would be divided, and Jolie’s spokesperson declined to give details.
A trial date in the custody case had been tentatively set for Dec. 4 before a private judge in Los Angeles.
A 2009 Triumph Bonneville motorcycle previously owned by Hollywood star Brad Pitt is up for grabs this weekend in England.
The Bud Ekins Desert Scrambler Special will be auctioned on Saturday by Coys at the London Motorcyle Show at the city’s Excel exhibition space.
One of just three special edition bikes created to celebrate the life of Steve McQueen’s stunt double Bud Ekins, it was built by Brad Holstein on behalf of Triumph. It’s said to have been given to Brad Pitt as a gift from the Ocean’s Eleven producer Jerry Weintraub, with a special birthday message engraved on the petrol cap.
The sellers describe the motorbike as being in good all-round condition, complete with its original license plates. It’s estimated to make between £20,000 and £30,000 ($28,000 – $42,000).
“We are excited to be back at the London Motorcycle Show for our third bike auction in the capital,” said Coys CEO, Chris Routledge. “We have a stunning selection of motorcycles on offer, including this special Triumph evocating the sled racers that Steve McQueen and Bud Ekins used to race in the 1960s.”
Weatherman Brad Pitt made another appearance on The Jim Jefferies Show. Weather Brad is known for his grim reports on global warming, and this time he did his apocalyptic weather report in the field.
I’m on a boat!
On a boat in a canal in Venice, Italy, he said to Jefferies, “Yes, it’s a state of emergency here. It’s complete and utter chaos. The roads are gone. I repeat, the roads are gone. The rising water levels have consumed the streets. Behind me you’ll see terrified tourists evacuating the city to what I can only assume is a large ark of some kind.”
So, you’re doing the weather?
If you think it’s odd that A-List celebrity Brad Pitt is doing the weather on Comedy Central you’re not alone. Jim Jefferies explained on Conan that Pitt is a fan of Jim Jefferies‘s standup and actually asked him if he could be on the show. Jefferies said, “So we gave him this brown suit and he said, ‘Hey can I take that with me?’ And I said yeah, and now he carries the suit around with him in case he wants to do some field work weather reporting.”

PS. I just happened to be in Venice when this news came out. Unfortunately, I didn’t spot Brad. That would’ve been a slight miracle obviously, considering the huge amount of tourists.
Earlier this year, Brad Pitt spoke to to GQ in an extensive interview about his personal and professional life. In the interview, he talked about how Frank Ocean‘s music in particular was helping him through his divorce with Angelina Jolie. On Saturday night (July 22), Brad made a surprise appearance onstage with Frank as he performed a Stevie Wonder rendition of The Carpenters’ “Close to You” at FYF Fest in L.A.
Pitt’s gone through a highly publicized divorce with Angelina Jolie, and in the GQ interview he described the importance of Frank’s music at the time. “I find this young man so special. Talk about getting to the raw truth,” he said. “He’s painfully honest. He’s very, very special. I can’t find a bad one. And of great irony to me: Marvin Gaye’s Here, My Dear [Gaye’s touchstone album about divorce]. And that kind of sent me down a road.”
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie released their first joint statement Monday night (01/10).
The estranged couple has agreed to seal all court documents pertaining to their divorce in order to protect their six children.
“The parties and their counsel have signed agreements to preserve the privacy rights of their children and family by keeping all court documents confidential and engaging a private judge to make any necessary legal decisions and to facilitate the expeditious resolution of any remaining issues. The parents are committed to act as a united front to effectuate recovery and reunification,” the couple said in a statement obtained by CNN.

While Brad Pitt’s name has appeared in plenty of headlines over the past two months, the actor himself hadn’t made a public appearance since Angelina Jolie filed for divorce — until Wednesday night.
Pitt was back in the spotlight when he hit the red carpet for a fan event celebrating his new World War II drama “Allied.”
The 52-year-old actor didn’t address the split, but made a brief comment about the warmth he’d received from fans while signing autographs.
“It’s really sweet,” Pitt said during an interview. “Everybody’s been very kind out here. It’s really nice to have the support.”
Pitt seemed in good spirits during the chat, which was streamed on Facebook.
When asked if there was a past movie from “Allied” director Robert Zemeckis that he wished he’d had a part in, he smiled and said, “(Who Framed) Roger Rabbit.”
While this was the “Fight Club” star’s first red carpet since his split from Jolie, it wasn’t the first opportunity to attend a premiere.
The actor skipped the Sept. 28 premiere of “Voyage of Time,” telling People in a statement, “I’m currently focused on my family situation.”
Pitt was recently cleared of child abuse allegations after an investigation by the Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services.
Sources familiar with the investigation told NBC News, “The allegations were not substantiated after interviews with family members, including the children.”
