Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have reached a temporary custody agreement that will allow the actor to visit his six children.

Two sources familiar with the agreement said the accord will be in place for three weeks.

It calls for Brad’s first visit with his children to be monitored by a therapist, but that may not be a requirement for subsequent visits.

The sources said both actors have agreed to undergo individual counselling.

Angelina filed for divorce on September 19, with her lawyer saying her decision was “for the health of the family”.

The FBI is gathering evidence about allegations Brad was involved in a dispute on a private flight with his family on September 14.
