Hollywood's former power couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have finally reached an agreement after battling for custody over their six children Maddox, 16, Pax, 13, Zahara, 12, Shiloh, 11, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 9, since their divorce in September last year.

The two actors released a joint statement on Monday as follows:

The parties and their counsel have signed agreements to preserve the privacy rights of their children and family by keeping all court documents confidential and engaging a private judge to make any necessary legal decisions and to facilitate the expeditious resolution of any remaining issues. The parents are committed to act as a united front to effectuate recovery and reunification.

The news comes a month after Brad was denied an emergency hearing in which he intended to have all of their divorce documents and proceedings sealed off to protect their children and "avoid subjecting them to the negative impact of the intense media and worldwide public scrutiny."

However, Angelina believed his request was an attempt to "shield himself rather than the minor children, from public view" which caused Brad to claim that when it came to protecting the kids, Angelina had "no self-regulating mechanism".
