After a brutal legal battle that happened in 2016, now things are heading towards a positive path for exes Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt.

The pair have found a way out with a pending court date looming with regards to the custody of their six children, according to media reports.

Jolie’s attorney Samantha Bley Dejean said the details of which remain confidential “to protect the best interest of their kids”.

Jolie has backed out of her earlier petition seeking sole physical custody of the children a middle ground between the two parties was recently agreed.

The agreement left Jolie “relieved with the progress for the health of the family,” shared an insider privy to the matter.

Pitt, on the other hand, did not approve of the agreement.

“While some progress has been made, this isn’t an ideal situation for Brad,” a second source told us at the time.

“There’s an arrangement in place but it’s not a permanent agreement, and there’s a long road ahead.”
