Love is dead, mourned fans when Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt announced last year that it was over. But because just like in Mr And Mrs Smith, a reconciliation might be on the cards for the couple formerly known as Brangelina. The divorce – which has played out amidst tremendous acrimony – might not happen after all. In fact, “the divorce is off,” proclaims the cover of the latest edition of Us Magazine which is exclusively running the story quoting a source close to Angelina and Brad. The actors, who have six children, have stalled the split by simply doing nothing. “They haven’t done anything to move it forward in several months and no one thinks they are ever going to,” said Us Magazine’s source.
Angelina Jolie, 42, and Brad Pitt, 53, announced in September last year they were separating, after 12 years together and two years married. Almost immediately, Brad was accused of being violent towards his children – he was later cleared by a court of child abuse. Angelina and the kids moved out to a mansion in Malibu. But it seems she still holds a candle for her ex – “She’s still so in love with him,” is how Us Magazine’s source put it.
This year, both actors have bared their souls in high-profile interviews in which Angelina Jolie revealed she’s been diagnosed with Bell’s palsy and Brad Pitt spoke at length about kicking his drinking habit. “He got sober to try and win her back,” the source told Us Magazine, “He knew he had a problem that he had to take care of. And that’s all she ever wanted.”
