Are Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie having a change of heart?
One of Hollywood’s most beloved couples announced their breakup in September 2016, but one source told Us Weekly that 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,” the insider added.
The reason for the sudden halt in divorce proceedings? Jolie, 42, is allegedly regretting her decision to split from Pitt: “She’s still so in love with him.”
Angelina’s indecision comes at a complete surprise considering her behavior following the announcement of their divorce nearly a year ago. Sources claimed that people in Jolie’s inner circle were “running a smear campaign” against the actor, who was accused of infidelity and physical abuse.
A dramatic plane trip in which Pitt, 53, and son Maddox reportedly got into a heated altercation also added fuel to the growing fire.
However, in the nearly 12 months since their split, the actress has warmed up to the idea of getting back with her estranged husband after seeing his efforts to better himself.
The actor confessed in a GQ cover story that he was “boozing” so much that he “could drink a Russian under the table with his own vodka.” He admitted that he gave up alcohol cold turkey, sticking to cranberry juice and fizzy water.
He also admitted to his shortcomings as a father, saying that he’s “gotta be more” for his kids — Maddox, 16, Pax, 13, Zahara, 12, Shiloh, 11 and 9-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.
“I grew up with a father-knows-best/war mentality — the father is all-powerful, superstrong — instead of really knowing the man and his own self-doubt and struggles,” the Oscar-winning actor said at the time. “And it’s hit me smack in the face with our divorce: I gotta be more. I gotta be more for them. I have to show them. And I haven’t been great at it.”
In a cover story with Vanity Fair earlier this month, Angelina opened up about her current relationship with Pitt, mentioning no idea of getting back together.
“We care for each other and care about our family. We are both working towards the same goal.”
Since the breakup, Jolie has moved into a newly purchased 11,000 square-foot mansion in Los Angeles’ Los Feliz neighborhood with her kids. She has remained out of the spotlight outside of appearances and interviews for her film “First They Killed My Father.”
Pitt, on the other hand, has kept busy by devoting himself to his work, fitness regimen (he looks better than ever!) and sculpting.
