The actor met his brood on Oct. 8, for the first time since estranged wife
But not all of his kids were there, and reports say that in keeping with a temporary plan recommended by the Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Services investigation and agreed to by Jolie, 41, and Pitt, 52, a therapist was present during the meeting.
(Reports that previously stated Pitt had seen his children were inaccurate.)
Jolie filed for divorce on Sept. 19, with attention turning shortly after to claims that Pitt verbally and physically abused one of his children on Sept. 14 while on the family's private plane during the trip back from France. "This decision was made for the health of the family," Robert Offer, an attorney for Jolie, told USA TODAY at the time.
Claims of abuse were "greatly exaggerated or fabricated," a source close to Pitt told USA TODAY soon after, noting that, "he takes this very seriously and is fully cooperating." Pitt voluntarily took a drug test within days in an effort to cooperate with a DCFS investigation.
People says until the DCFS recommended temporary plan ends on Oct. 20, both Pitt and Jolie will undergo individual counseling along with family therapy. Pitt will also continue voluntary drug and alcohol testing.
Pitt and Jolie have six children: Maddox, 15; Pax, 12; Zahara, 11; Shiloh, 10; and twins Vivienne and Knox, 8.
