The actor Brad Pitt was granted joint custody of his five underage children with his former wife, actor Angelina Jolie, in a tentative ruling, sources confirmed to NBC News on Wednesday.
Pitt, who split from Jolie in 2016, was granted a request to adjust the current custody agreement to allow him more time with his children, according to two sources familiar with the situation. The new arrangement tentatively splits Pitt’s legal custody equally with his ex-wife.
Court documents in the ongoing custody dispute were sealed from public record in 2017 out of concern for the minor children.
Attorneys for Pitt filed a motion Monday in support of a sealed custody order, requesting notice to the court that Judge John W. Odenkirk “has conducted an extensive proceeding over the past six months in a thorough, fair manner and reached a tentative ruling and order after hearing from experts and percipient witnesses.” The motion was made to “correct” the record against “factual and legal inaccuracies” made by Jolie’s legal team in opposition.
Brad Pitt’s brother Doug has recreated the iconic ending of Seven for a pretty weird beer commercial. Since we’re talking about beer here, the commercial has been titled ‘6ix’ to play off of the six pack of beer that serves as Gwyneth Paltrow’s head in the ad, which even mimics the color tones of the original scene. Doug certainly doesn’t have the acting chops of his brother, but that’s where the charm shines through for a pretty weird, but humorous beer commercial.
Mother’s Brewing Company in Springfield, Missouri brought Doug Pitt, brother of Brad Pitt, on board to shoot the Seven parody out in front of their place of business. Pitt has taken out all of the bad language and instead of a gun, he has a hose and uses it once he finds out his beloved six pack has been stolen. The beer in question is Mothers’ new Doin’ Good. It’s a good and wholesome take on a pretty brutal scene, which Brad Pitt made famous.
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.

On warm days like we are now experiencing now, in the Erie region, water is something we all need. We have access to clean drinking water, but that’s not the case in other parts of the world, like in Africa.
In Erie, the mother of Hollywood Actor Brad Pitt, teamed up with her daughter, to help raise money and awareness for clean drinking water.
The two travel across the world, and on Wednesday, they were at the Kahkwa Club for a luncheon called “Let It Pour.” Julie Pitt Neal is a mother of five. Two of her children are adopted from Ethiopia. Her brother, Doug Pitt, works with the organization Africa 6000 International.
The Erie event helped raise funds for Africa 6000 so that a deep, clean water well can be drilled in Ethiopia.
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.”
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have sold their home in New Orleans’ French Quarter.
Documents filed with the Land Records Division of the Orleans Parish Clerk of Court’s Office show the property sold for $4.9 million.
Pitt and Jolie purchased the home in 2007 after Hurricane Katrina for $3.5 million. The couple, who are divorcing, bought it after Pitt established the Make It Right Foundation to fuel development of new housing in New Orleans’ Lower 9th Ward neighborhood.
According to the listing, the three-story, 1830s-era mansion has 7,645 square feet, five bedrooms, three bathrooms and two half-baths.
Listing agent Nina (NIGH’-nuh) Killeen confirmed the sale closed Friday. She says, “It sold for a very fair price. It’s a good deal for both parties. They’re happy with the outcome.”
