Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have reached a custody agreement for their six kids -- and it's the same as the temporary agreement that was worked out a few weeks ago. Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, Knox and Vivienne, 8, will remain in Angelina's custody while Brad will have supervised visitation with a therapist.

A representative for Jolie said in a statement:
    "We can confirm that childcare professionals have encouraged a legal agreement accepted and signed by both sides over a week ago. 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 well being, 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."

Last Friday, Brad filed for joint custody, and while he has agreed to the above conditions for now, he hasn't withdrawn his petition, which protects his rights in the future. So why settle? No one really knows, but it might have to do with media coverage. “Unlike Jolie’s side, Brad’s side is actually attempting to abide by the confidentiality agreement that both parties signed, something Angelina’s side has no interest in doing,” a source close to the Jolie-Pitt child custody battle told Entertainment Tonight. “From the beginning, Brad only wants to do what’s best for the children, and that’s not fighting this in the public press.”

“This is what Brad and Angelina have decided between each other for the children,” a source added to ET. “The agreement is also indefinite, so there is no time frame to it, it is in place until they decide to make a change. This is a good sign, it is the first step. This means one issue is now off the table for them.”

But is it though? If Brad hasn't withdrawn his petition and this is "indefinite," that doesn't sound very permanent to us!
