Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have jointly signed agreements for the protection of the privacy rights of their children. On Monday evening, the former couple released a joint statement saying that they will work together in safeguarding the privacy of their children. The future of the six children has been the talk of the town since Pitt and Jolie have decided to part ways.

“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,” said the couple in a statement to the Associated Press. The statement further elaborates, “The parents are committed to act as a united front to effectuate recovery and reunification.”

Earlier this month, Brad Pitt asked a Superior Court Judge of LA to seal the legal records to protect the privacy of his children. He reportedly blamed Angelina Jolie for revealing all the personal details to media outfits. The “Gia” actress reacted to Pitt’s accusation by claiming that he is “terrified that the public will learn the truth.” However, she agreed with Pitt on the importance of sealing the agreements for protecting the privacy of their children. The current statement can be considered as a result of these recent happenings.

Due to a previous agreement, Angelina Jolie has the sole custody of their six children – Maddox, Zahara, Pax, Shiloh, and the twins Knox and Vivienne. Jolie supervises Pitt’s visits to their children. With the present agreements signed by Angelina and Brad, the privacy rights of their children are likely to be protected from media entities. Both Pitt and Jolie are working together in spite of differences in order to safeguard their children.
