Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt ‘Stalls’ Legal Split
Divorce proceedings have stalled for Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, friends of the stars claim.
A new report by Us Weekly sees multiple sources claiming the former power couple, who had a very public and very bitter split in September 2016, have not moved forward with proceedings to end their marriage.
One insider told the publication: ‘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 reason given for the alleged stall is Brad coming clean about his boozing in an interview with GQ this past May.
A friend of Jolie, 42, told Us Weekly that the commitment to self-improvement has struck a chord with the actress, who reportedly previously claimed she would consider taking Brad back ‘if he showed he was committed to raising a family’.
The source went on to add that Brad had ‘got sober to try and win her back’ and that the move to quit drinking was ‘all she ever wanted’.
Meanwhile, the insider claims: ‘Everyone thinks they are going to get back together.
‘It wouldn’t be surprising if they announced that they’re calling [the split] off and trying to work things out.’
A source told DailyMail.com that the ‘divorce process has significantly slowed down but there has been no real change’.
The insider claimed that the former couple ‘are getting along for the sake of their children’.
The actor, 53, claimed to have gone cold turkey from alcohol and now sticks to sipping on cranberry juice and carbonated water in his GQ interview.
He admitted his drinking had been a problem and that his parenting style needed amending.
The movie star confessed to entering therapy and has also been seen turning to art for healing, holing up in an LA studio to make sculptures.
