I don't think it was stated anywhere in the manga that the 1st kept 2 Bijuu under his control. But I would assume that he would have at least kept the Kyuubi for Konoha (if the Kyuubi was one of the Bijuu he had in his possession).
It did said that, just can't find it anywhere going to have to read the whole manga all over again, gimme 3 days to find it.
