Nearly a year after filing for divorce from Brad Pitt, it seems like Angelina Jolie may be having second thoughts. According to Us Weekly, their divorce is being put on hold. “They haven’t done anything to move it forward in several months and no one thinks they are ever going to,” a source told the magazine.
The actors ended their relationship after spending 12 years together. They got married in 2014 and are parents to six children: Maddox, 16, Pax, 13, Zahara, 12, Shiloh, 11 and 9-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.
While it is still unclear what led to their initial split — there was reportedly a violent altercation between Brad and their 15-year-old son Maddox during a plane ride — the two have been focused on raising their six children in a positive and healthy environment. Brad has even started going to therapy for drinking and smoking, a move Us Weekly adds has made Angelina consider taking him back. “He knew he had a problem that he had to take care of and that’s all she ever wanted,” the source continued. “Everyone thinks they are going to get back together. It wouldn’t be surprising if they announced that they’re calling it off and trying to work things out.”
In recent interviews to GQ and other publications, Brad has revealed how he has completely given up drinking. “I can’t remember a day since I got out of college when I wasn’t boozing or had a spliff, or something…I’m really, really happy to be done with all of that. I mean I stopped everything except boozing when I started my family. But even this last year, you know — things I wasn’t dealing with. I was boozing too much,” he said.
Pitt said he loved wine, adding “truthfully I could drink a Russian under the table with his own vodka. I was a professional. I was good.” He’s also apologized to former wife Jennifer Aniston, who he’s rumored to have cheated on with Angie. “He addressed all the hurt he caused her,” a different source previously told Life & Style.
“Everyone thinks [Angelina & Brad] are going to get back together … It wouldn’t be surprising if they announced that they’re calling it off and trying to work things out,” the source added.
Angelina is currently awaiting the release of her Netflix film, First They Killed My Father.
