Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are finally getting close to settling their bitter custody battle, sources confirm to RadarOnline.com.Insiders close to the situation first revealed to The Blast that the A-list couple are about to sign an agreement that will end their years-long court war over their 6 children — Maddox, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12 and 10-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox.
“They are working towards agreement," an informant exclusively told RadarOnline.com, but anything can change because "nothing is in writing" yet.
The couple have been fighting over custody of their brood since their shocking split in 2016.
The estranged pair plan to wrap up negotiations before the private custody trial begins, according to the report, and the agreement will give Pitt a "substantial amount of time" with the kids.
While the couple have yet to officially sign off on the agreement, sources tell the site "it’s expected to be finalized very soon."

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, the stars’ custody trial judge is actually the same man who officiated their wedding.
The actors chose the retired judge to help them hash out their legal troubles when they first split, and were recently given approval by the Los Angeles court to keep their upcoming custody trial private.
The bombshell breakup between Jolie and Pitt happened on the heels of drama between Brad, 54, and son Maddox that exploded on the notorious booze-fueled 2016 family flight which led Angie to accuse her husband of a drunken, physical altercation and child abuse.
Although Pitt has denied all allegations of a physical altercation and child abuse, Maddox had reportedly jumped in to defend his mom during the savage argument with Brad, leading to an alleged fight between father and son.
The next day Angelina filed for divorce.
They are set to go to court in the divorce battle with a trial date of December 4, 2018.
