According to a source close to Brangelina, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s divorce is reportedly ‘off’. The couple who split in September 2016 after two years of marriage and a decade of dating are thought to have put their separation on hold after the Oklahoma-born actor “got sober to try and win her back”.
“The divorce is off. They haven’t done anything to move it forward in several months and no one thinks they are ever going to,” a source claims.
“He got sober to try and win her back. He knew he had a problem that he had to take care of. And that’s all she ever wanted.”
Angelina – who has kids Maddox (16), Pax (13), Zahara (12), Shiloh (11), as well as nine-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne with Brad – is said to still be “in love” with the father of her youngest children and friends have said they wouldn’t be surprised if the famous couple got back together.
Speaking to Us Weekly magazine, the insider added: “Everyone thinks they are going to get back together.
“It wouldn’t be surprising if they announced that they’re calling the divorce off and trying to work things out.”
“She’s still so in love with him,” the insider underlined.
Recently, Angelina revealed to be thankful the pair can remain civil for their kids’ sake and insisted their home life was not ‘negative’.
“Our lifestyle was not in any way a negative. That is and will remain one of the wonderful opportunities we were able to give our children. We’re all just healing from the events that led to the filing. They’re not healing from divorce. They’re healing from some… from life, from things in life,” the actress said.
The 42-year-old also admitted their separation had been the “hardest time”, but in June she moved her and the children into a new Los Angeles mansion.
“It’s just been the hardest time, and we’re just kind of coming up for air. This house is a big jump forward for us, and we’re all trying to do our best to heal our family,” she said at the time.
Pitt admitted his drinking had become “a problem” in May, but he has now reportedly quit alcohol.
“I can’t remember a day since I got out of college when I wasn’t boozing or had a spliff, or something. Something. And you realize that a lot of it is, um – cigarettes, you know, pacifiers. And I’m running from feelings,” he confessed.
“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. It’s just become a problem. And I’m really happy it’s been half a year now, which is bittersweet, but I’ve got my feelings in my fingertips again. I think that’s part of the human challenge: You either deny them all of your life or you answer them and evolve,” Pitt said on giving up booze.
Angelina filed for divorce from Brad last September citing irreconcilable differences. At the beginning of the new year, the couple made arrangements for Pitt to see the children on a daily basis in order to make the separation as easy as possible for them but now it seems like the divorce has been put on hold permanently.
