According to sources speaking to People magazine, Angelina Jolie and the kids have started therapy. Talking to a psychotherapist is part of a temporarily plan that Jolie and Pitt have agreed upon, until the end of their divorce and custody battle.
Two weeks into the divorce process, Angelina Jolie and her six children have started seeing a therapist, a source reveals, adding that the circumstances are “traumatic”, but that the actress is “staying strong” for the kids.
The couple’s drama started unveiling when Pitt allegedly had a violent outburst towards one of the kids during a private jet flight. The incident has been signaled to the Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services, that started an investigation. At present, all six children are in the custody of 41-year-old Angelina. Brad is allowed supervised visitation, in the presence of a psychotherapist.
Since the split, Jolie and the rest of the family moved into a rental house in Los Angeles, where she has her brother and also some friends living in. “She did what she felt she had to do to protect the safety of the kids”, People’s source tells the publication.
Brad Pitt, on the other hand, is “absolutely devastated and heartbroken” over the split. A source in Pitt’s entourage says that he feels he has been unfairly portrayed and fears that this may have affected the chances of reuniting with his family.
The kids, Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10 and twins Vivienne and Knox, both 8, will be only in their mother’s care, if Jolie gets her way. Meanwhile, no matter the final outcome, all six children will be staying with their mother until october 20th. Both parents will attend individual counseling sessions and, on top of that, Pitt will constantly be tested for drugs and alcohol use.
