Three of their children are their biological children, and the other three are adopted.
“A custody arrangement was agreed two weeks ago, and has been signed by both parties and the judge,” Jolie’s lawyer, Samantha Bley DeJean, said in a statement carried by several US celebrity news outlets including TMZ.
“The agreement, which is based on the recommendations of the child custody evaluator, eliminates the need for a trial,” she said.
The couple had been set for a trial on December 4 — the deal means they will not battle in court.
Angelina Jolie originally wanted to have sole custody of the children, while Brad Pitt asked for shared custody.
The terms of the agreement are confidential, DeJean said.
