Brad Pitt has made his first public appearance since the news of his divorce from Angelina Jolie made headlines last month. Since the news broke, Pitt has been keeping a low profile in public and in the media as he gets his affairs in order with his ex-wife, Jolie. The two had been in a brutal custody battle that ended in a temporary hearing on Monday, and since then, Pitt has stepped out on the red carpet for the premiere of his new film, Allied.
Pitt also spoke to E! News on the red carpet and opened up for the first time about how he is doing after the divorce and custody battle. He told the source that he is doing good and that he’s greatly appreciative of his fans who have shown him nothing but support over the last month.
“It’s really sweet, everyone has been really kind out here. It’s really nice to have all the support.”
On Monday, however, a representative for Jolie reported that an agreement had been reached by the ex-couple in terms of legal custody of their children. According to the agreement, Jolie will have sole custody of her six children, while Pitt is allowed to see them with a therapist or a counselor present during visits.
According to reports, Jolie still does not “trust” Pitt with her children. The Mr. & Mrs. Smith actress had filed for divorce from her husband just days after he had a domestic dispute with their 15-year-old son, Maddox on an airplane. A source close to Jolie said filing for the divorce was for “the health of her family,” and well-being of her children.
A representative for Angelina Jolie spoke out in a statement on Monday saying:
‘In accordance with this agreement, the six children will stay in their mother’s custody, and the children will continue therapeutic visits with their father. This has been determined by childcare professionals to be in the children’s best interest.’
‘We are not in a position to discuss the details. We hope now that it is clear that the events which led to the dissolution filing involved minor children and their wellbeing, there will be understanding of the sensitivity of the family situation.’
‘We believe that all sides are committed to healing the family and ask for your consideration during this difficult time.”
