Pitt reaches deal with wife

Angelina Jolie Pitt and Brad Pitt have reached a temporary custody agreement that will allow the actor to visit with his six children, sources said Friday. Two sources familiar with the agreement but not authorized to speak publicly said the agreement will be in place for three weeks. It calls for Pitt’s first visit with his children to be monitored by a therapist, but that may not be a requirement for subsequent visits.

The sources say both actors have agreed to undergo individual counseling.

Jolie Pitt filed for divorce on Sept. 19, and her attorney said the following day her decision was “for the health of the family.” Her filing sought sole physical custody of their six children, who range in ages from 8 to 15.

‘The Boss’ signs excuse note

A Philadelphia fifth-grader ditched school for the chance to meet rock legend Bruce Springsteen and “The Boss” gladly played along by signing the boy’s pre-typed absence excuse note.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports that Michael Fenerty attended a meet-and-greet Thursday at the Free Library of Philadelphia with his dad.

Springsteen was in town for a book signing to promote his new autobiography, Born to Run.

Springsteen told the boy that he would have to read the note first because that’s how he got in trouble with his first contract.
