A month ago, The Blast and a few other outlets reported that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt were still working out the details of their divorce. The custody issue was mostly resolved last December, just before they were due in court (after more than a year of drama). But the actual divorce is moving at a snail’s pace. The Blast said that Angelina and Brad are still working on a bifurcation, which would mean they would be legally single and “divorced” but they would still be working out the actual details of their divorce settlement, mostly their money, property and jointly held assets. It’s taking forever. And now Dan Wooten at the Sun has an “explanation” for why it’s taking forever: Angelina is trying to win Brad back. Or something. Note the quotes and quo bono. This came from Brad’s camp.
Angelina Jolie wants to win back estranged husband Brad Pitt, The Sun can reveal. Her surprise marriage U-turn is behind the reason why she is dragging out tortuous divorce negotiations, sources close to the former couple say. We can disclose Brad has turned down the idea of a romantic reconciliation but wants a harmonious relationship for the sake of their kids.
Our source said: “Angelina has made it clear to Brad that she wants to be back in a relationship with him. She would like them to be a family again and doesn’t seem capable of moving on. That’s why she is making it so difficult for Brad with every detail of their divorce.”
Brad’s main concern is being a dad for their six children, the insider added. The source said: “Brad has consistently kept his mouth shut because all he cares about is his kids. Angelina is making it horrendous for him and drawing out the process, but it’s not going to make him consider going back. He just wants it all settled — in reality, this could have been over a year ago — but she won’t let go.”
I mean, come on. I genuinely feel like Angelina still hates Brad’s guts with every fiber of her being. She’s always been that kind of person – when she’s done with someone, she’s absolutely DONE. I am suspicious of the timing and the idea that Brad wants us to think that Angelina is holding up the divorce though. It was my understanding that Angelina has already filed her financial disclosures and financial information with the court, and they’re still waiting on Brad to disclose all of his finances. I’m not 100% positive about that, but for months now, it’s has absolutely felt like Angelina is the one moving this divorce forward and he’s the one holding it up. Anyway, of course I don’t believe that Angelina is hung up on Brad, but I’m curious as to why HE wants us to think that.
