Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt managed to sit in the same room together this week

**FILE PHOTOS** Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt going to trial in custody case

This week, the Australian tabloid WHO published some exclusive photos of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie in some kind of meeting in Beverly Hills. The photos were super-grainy, and I don’t even want to know what kind of high-powered telephoto infrared lens was used to capture what was in all likelihood a therapy session – you can see a few of the photos here.

I can’t even make out enough details in their expressions to say whether they were both miserable, but hey, I’m guessing it was not a happy moment. They’re both seated, and speaking to a third party – probably a therapist, like I said, or some kind of neutral moderator or arbitrator. The Blast claimed that the photos showed a “very animated conversation as a man sat across and listened… and both were able to avoid a huge scene as they made their way to the meeting.” Throughout the meeting, “Pitt could be seen pacing back and forth in the office as Jolie appeared to be visibly upset with the discussions.” The Blast’s sources claim that Angelina and Brad were doing one of their scheduled negotiations for the kids’ custody… but I’m not sure I believe that this was a conversation about custody.

Meanwhile, Us Weekly says that Brad and Angelina actually met up twice in the past week and “They’ve had other meetings in person; this is not the first. This is part of their ongoing process to work through things regarding the kids and the divorce.” A second source claimed: “They have established a foundation … that is enabling the process to move forward in a much more thoughtful and peaceful manner.”

My opinion? They’re not negotiating with each other or trying to work out the nitty-gritty of custody or child support or alimony. I think they were meeting with a therapist or a family counselor and the subject was about how they can work towards being in the same room together with killing each other, for the sake of their kids. I think Angelina has figured out on the actual legal stuff, she needs to just let Samantha Bley Dejean handle everything.

Last thing – People Magazine had a weird story about how the Jolie-Pitt’s French chateau, Miraval, is releasing another wine. Sure.

    Frankly it seemed Angelina finally feels comfortable/safe talking to Brad after the damage he did to her and the children.

    She has always been the adult in the room and she continues to put her children’s welfare her number 1 priority.

    Since Samantha came onboard, Angelina & children have been looking more relaxed and happy.

    Both Angelina & Samantha put a legal stop to Brad’s bs and even the smear campaign has lessened.

    I think this was the judge appointed mediator who is there to listen to both parties.

    After two year, still supervised and not 50/50 custody shows Brad hasn’t fully redeemed himself in the children’s, the judge, Angelina & the mediator’s eyes.

    Angelina seemed to have moved on from him and only cordial for the children’s sake.

    Lastly I don’t give a damn about Brad and his projects but as long as the children feel safe with him again then that is great.

    At one point it looks like he shows the therapist/lawyer something on his phone and you can see her with her hands in the air like she’s upset. Of course its hard to tell which picture came first, but i would think its a therapist about learning to effectively parent from separate homes

    • Maya says:

      I think it’s the mediator who decides if Brad gets shared custody.

      Brad is also seems agrivated with his pacing back and forth.

    • Pas says:

      If you could see the overall picture of that, Jolie is just sitting no raising hands.

    • CA Family Code says:

      The meeting took place at Lance Spiegel, Esq.’s office in Beverly Hills last Friday. I think the story actually began with X17 photos and then The Sun picked up the photos and made up whatever story.
      There are more than a dozen photos out there. The one with her hands in the air is either her holding a large, invisible beach ball out in front of her, or she is clearly upset. He begins in the leather chair and then she is in the leather chair they both at one point look into the camera. Brad shows the mystery person behind the desk his cell phone at one point you see his iPad. Throughout the photos, she does NOT look happy. I know that mediation/conciliation can take place either with both parties in the room or with parties in separate rooms and inter-mediator facilitating and being the go-between. A counselor. If one or the other party does not agree to be in the same room then they do not have to.

  3. Mia4s says:

    Well that paparazzi just paid off his student loans! Although if it is a therapy session I’m very uncomfortable with it being photographed.

  4. Zapp Brannigan says:

    So people are just standing outside therapist or lawyer offices now taking pictures through a window. I would hate to be famous.

    • CA Family Code says:

      Being Brad Pitt for decades could most definitely drive one to drink. I would be miserable.

      • Kebbie says:

        Huh? The guy has lived the most charmed life imaginable. Just goes to show addiction doesn’t discriminate.

  5. Grumpier than thou says:

    Yeah the description of these photos seems like it’s a massive invasion of privacy in circumstances where both parties would reasonably expect it. I’m not going to click through – this is on the same spectrum imo as hacking private photos. Not going to add to site traffic and contribute to these types of pics being acceptable practice

  6. Venus says:

    I’m not looking at those photos — that’s incredibly f’ing intrusive.

    • Who ARE These People? says:


    • lucy2 says:

      I agree with you and the others who have shared that feeling too. It’s very invasive, and for what? What do any of us gain by seeing them?

    • Bryn says:

      I’m really glad they didn’t post the pictures here, thanks Kaiser. Terrible invasion of privacy, I don’t care how famous they are, they should be able to do this in private without being photographed

    • minx says:

      Same, this is just too much.

  7. Holly says:

    This whole situation is very sad and I wish it was actually treated as such.

    A man, who at one point seemed to be a very devoted father and husband (she only married him in 2014) falls into addiction and other issues regarding his behavior arise that don’t seem to have been present in the majority of their relationship.

    It’s not an excuse, but it’s sad. And I hope they can rebuild as coparents. I hope he is actually working on himself and can be close to his kids.

    • Maya says:

      Agree. So sad that Brad let his alcoholism destroy his personality and his family.

    • lucy2 says:

      By his own admission he was abusing alcohol for most of his adult life, unless I’m remembering his interview wrong. It seems to have escalated in recent years though.

  8. Michelle says:

    Those photos were pulled from a lot of sites because i think they were illegally taken. No one should have to put up with their therapy or legal meetings photographed or recorded. There is a line & paparazzi cross it all the time.

  9. Adorable says:

    I mean how did the paps know which floor to take the pics at?After last years leaks & statements I gotta say I’m surprised seeing them in one room,sure they share kids etc,but last year things just seemed to go out of control,anywho hope the kids are happy.

  10. Booie says:

    Something tells me that when these kids are older and have the ability to choose for themselves as adults, no therapists or judges or even Angie telling them they have to see him, more than one of them will have a strained relationship with him. Similar to that of Angie and her father. Cordial, but with a lot of complicated memories.

  11. Alissa says:

    Honestly I don’t know what’s worse – the fact that paparazzi took photos of an extremely private moment, or that WHO tried to spin it as them trying to work things out and get back together. Gross on all accounts. Let them figure things out for themselves and the health of their children and carry on with their lives.

  12. Loopy says:

    These Australian and French tabloids always manage super exclusive shots. Is this the same magazine that got the topless Duchess pics?

  13. kristen says:

    I can’t imagine going to a therapist’s office for a private conversation… only to have it photographed by paparazzi. What a violation.

  14. dsgd says:

    these pics are so creepy, wow

  15. truth hurts says:

    For the whole month of December we see Brad Pitt coming and going in that same garage. I think someone figured out to go to the adjacent building and find out what was going on and I believe they got lucky. The problem is no one caught Angie going in or out. Either she went in the back way and found a secret passage. That is telling.
    These are two separate meetings and obviously there have been more because Pitt has been there more than once and it looks like Katz’s office. I don’t see it being Speigel and she show up without her counsel.
    They came to an agreement the first of December and I think this was on the table. Meet and try to work out your differences together and get it solved and move on with the co parenting and be amicable.
    Both of them are nice people that are very flawed but Angie seems to be more dedicated to the kids and Brad has to learn and first beat his addictions. These things do take time and it is now come to this stage.
    I will always revert back to what she first said. This is for the health of my family and we will come out better in the end. There was resistance from Pitt from day one. Not wanting counseling for image reasons but that is fact.

    • Carol says:

      It’s not in Pitt’s lawyer office. If it’s you betcha Jolie would have her own lawyer there. The man seemed to have dark hair while Pitt’s lawyer’s is grey. It’s a therapist office for sure with the man being a mediator helping them working out details on their problems for coparenting.

  16. tuille says:

    Off thread, but Vivian is growing up & getting tall!

  17. mona says:

    She looks angry

  18. Karen2 says:

    They were both so beautiful when they first got together. But thats all in the past now. lol.

  19. Tallia says:

    I find it appalling that the paps would intrude on them in this fashion.

  20. Oliviajoy1995 says:

    They’ve been trying to get divorced longer than they were legally married.

    • AD says:

      Angie is not daft she is ensuring that their kids get the best not only custody but their future, Also their scheduling etc; Both work, once the papers are signed that’s it there is no going back so she is ensuring that the kids get their entitlement

    • Kendra says:

      Aren’t they still legally married?

  21. Ms. says:

    What a weird and gross violation of privacy.

    • Hmm says:

      Yep. No matter what I think about this couple the photos of them in a therapist office is terrible.

      • sunshine gold says:

        Yeah, how do they justify that to themselves – the mag and the photographer? So gross.

  22. Hmm says:

    There are a bunch of photographs of brad in that parking garage. They don’t get Aj but they get him? So yeah whatever the one source saying they’ve been meeting up is right, just google brad in parking garages LoL. I have no idea what they’re meeting about but yeah it does not look friendly

    • Kebbie says:

      She probably has a driver that is picking her up out of shot while he drives himself.

      • Hmmm says:

        Even if she has a driver that normally doesn’t stop the paparazzi from getting her. It just seems shady from Brad’s side because it seems like his team are the ones calling the paparazzi … if true it’s pretty gross of him to do that to the mother of his kids when their therapy sessions should be private.

        ever since their separation/divorce he’s managed to be pretty low key and not be photographed much. He hasn’t even been seen with their kids in 2 years so this was obviously avoidable. For whatever reason it seems like he wanted to be seen there with her.

  23. AD says:

    Tabloids & paps make millions out of these two, do they care ? No as long as they get their lols. Paps stroll or in hiding they are hunted. They go out of their way to take photos to sell, sell,sell!

    All I can think of is “Those poor kids.”
