Brad Pitt wants the court to fine Angelina if she doesn’t sign the divorce papers?

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

This exclusive story in The Sun is from Simon Boyle’s Bizarre Column. The Sun has been one of those outlets with very iffy and shady exclusives, all of them pro-Brad Pitt. The thing is, The Sun does that thing of gilding the lily – they take a somewhat believable gossip story and twist it until it becomes utterly useless. The nugget of gossip that I’ll believe is that Brad Pitt is mad that his divorce from Angelina Jolie hasn’t been finalized yet, especially as we’re nearing the three-year anniversary of Angelina ghosting him and dropping divorce papers on him. If that was the story – Brad’s mad, he wants this to be over – I would shrug and say that it sounds about right. What I don’t believe is that Brad’s mad and that Angelina is purposefully slow-walking the divorce because she wants to reunite with him. That’s some fantasy bullsh-t.

It has been almost three years since Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from Brad Pitt – and it could be another three till it finally goes through. I can exclusively reveal Brad and his legal team have gone to new lengths to get Angelina to sign the papers after stalling the process. The A-list Hollywood actor has asked his lawyers to get a judge to impose a final date or face being fined.

A source close to Brad said: “He has been incredibly patient throughout the divorce process despite being pushed to his limits on many occasions. But he’s finally had enough, and while he is a relatively calm person, he can only be pushed so far. He’s sick and tired of Ange constantly moving the goal posts and stalling their divorce month after month — painfully dragging out the process which he now feels has become almost a game for Angelina. Brad has instructed his legal team to seek help from the judge to impose a deadline for Ange to finalise the divorce — imposing a financial sanction if she fails to adhere to the date given by the judge.”

The Sun revealed in April that Angelina was trying to delay the process in a bid to win Brad back. But he turned her down in favour of trying to keep things harmonious for the sake of their six children. A court then issued a bifurcated judgement, which means the pair are legally single as they hash out the details of their divorce.

The source added: “Brad’s never been one for ultimatums. But he’s spent the past two-and-a-half years dealing with the ending of his marriage and he just wants to put an end to it all for good. He wants to move on with his life and stop having the divorce hanging over his head.”

[From The Sun]

Brad and Angelina’s divorce status was bifurcated back in March, which means they are somewhat “single,” legally. Back in December of last year, they reached a custodial agreement, which I believe (still) just extends to the four youngest children. What’s left? The money. The financial part of the divorce, which we haven’t heard much about in months. Back in November of last year, Angelina notified the court that she turned over all of her financial information to Brad and his legal team. We have never gotten confirmation that Brad has made similar disclosures to her team. That’s what’s left in their divorce proceedings, figuring out the money, figuring out the child support and spousal support and whether Angelina will get a structured divorce settlement. That’s my take on this suspicious piece from the Sun – I mean, Brad keeps smearing Angelina for no reason, except maybe the reason is that he’s the one holding sh-t up because he hasn’t made a disclosure to her team about his finances, and he’s fighting her on spousal support and that stuff. Just a theory. Because I truly don’t believe Angelina is pining away for him or hoping for a reunion.

    Yeah this seems sketchy.

    • AM says:

      What has she done to her chest? Her boobs look almost cartoonish on her thin frame. Wow. I never noticed how big they are. Looks weird.

      • Algernon says:

        She had reconstructive surgery after her double mastectomy. It took a while for the new boobs to settle over the scar tissue. It’s common with that procedure. A friend of mine had the same procedure around the same time as Angelina, and it took at least a year before her new boobs “fell into place.”

      • olive says:

        @AM well she IS with brad there, so we know it’s been at least 3 years since that photo was taken, and we also know from recent photos that her chest doesn’t look like that anymore since the implants have settled.

  2. lala11_7 says:

    Angelina to Brad….


  3. minx says:

    Oh suure, she wants a drunken narcissistic abuser back. Poor desperate Angelina, who can’t get any man so she needs to reel him back in 🙄.

    • Sierra says:

      Sure she is soo struggling getting other men that she desperately want to get back to an alcoholic 🤨

  4. Peg says:

    LOL, Brad’s movie was pushed back, so he needs more publicity, so he is on Angie’s back again.

  5. crogirl says:

    He wants to distract from MIR because things didn’t go his way in court

  6. Jane says:

    They need to get divorced and move on. I have Brangelina fatigue already.

  7. Beli says:

    Lmao Angie is so much better off without him and I’d bet my ass she knows it.

  8. elimaeby says:

    Kind of unrelated, but compared to so many celebrities’ children (*cough* Tori Spelling *cough*), Angie’s kids looks so happy and close with each other and with her. It makes me smile every time I see a picture of them all out together.

  9. crogirl says:

    His lawyer is always the one asking for extensions, the requests are filed by him.
    And Brad always whines to press, like he wanted bifurcation but she was the one to actually file. Bet it’s the same way now.

  10. Red Snapper says:

    Brad has more money than her, is that correct? Does anyone know the disparity? Like, who has more and by how much?

    • Darla says:

      If he does, he won’t for long. Marvel.

    • Yvette says:

      Brad has more money. His net worth (according to Wealthy Gorilla) is listed as $300 million. Angie’s is listed as $100 million.

      • Algernon says:

        The way he stalled turning in his financials, makes me think maybe he doesn’t have as much as he says he does. Why else delay that part of the proceedings? If he’s so anxious to get this over with, turn over the records and let the lawyers work out the settlement without delay. Unless, of course, doing so will reveal he’s not as rich as he says.

      • Yvette says:

        @Algernon, I think Brad handed his financials over just before the Judge signed the form legally separating them.

    • CA Family Code says:

      I can confirm that Pitt filed his Service of Preliminary Dec of Disclosure (schedule of assets and debts and an income and expense declaration and attached documents) which is a proof of service of financial docs. Here is the court’s docket entry:

      04/12/2019 Declaration – Service of Preliminary Dec. of Disclosure
      Filed by Respondent

      • Hmmm says:

        I can confirm the same way you did that Angelina Jolie disclosed hers in October of 2018. Months before deadbeat FINALLY disclosed his. Also I can also confirm that he filed to extend the private judge more than 5 times.

      • CA Family Code says:

        Not sure why extending the Judge is a thing. Also – it has to be stipulated to so it is a joint agreement.

  11. Yvette says:

    I thought they had settled everything except for final custody and the financials. The last thing I read about this called the current custody agreement temporary until the Judge makes a final determination. If Angie is hedging on signing the final decree (and that’s a big if as they both seem to want their marriage over and done with) could it be because she’s not thrilled with the final custody decision?

    • Sierra says:

      From what I can gather, Brad hasn’t submitted his financials and he is the one who is stalling..

    • CA Family Code says:

      Yes, he has

      04/12/2019 Declaration – Service of Preliminary Dec. of Disclosure
      Filed by Respondent

      Considering he only filed his Preliminary Dec of Disclosure on 4/12/19, the case would not be finished yet. They both have to file FINAL Decs of Disclosure and with a high asset divorce it is very time consuming. They have property and businesses and charities etc. It’s a lot of shiz.

      • Hmmm says:

        6 months after she did. So who was stalling?

      • CA Family Code says:

        Both parties stalled on all kinds of things…most notably the absence of a support order which usually comes first. Beyond that, I will not speculate or call names. You cannot call either party a “deadbeat” if there was NEVER an order requested by either as to support. They dropped the ball there and I am surprised at the attorneys as TYPICALLY, a support order is put in place immediately (albeit temporary)

  12. Darla says:

    I’m interested in AJ in relation to The Eternals. I am really eager to see what that is all going to be about. But she is with Marvel now and she needs to jettison him. If she is slow walking the divorce she is making a big mistake. She just pulled off the biggest reinvention. She was basically widely considered over and out of hollywood, and now she signs onto head MARVEL’s next phase. I mean, holy isht. Cut that 200 lb weight from your back and run.

    • Lady D says:

      She has never been considered over and out in Hollywood. She makes them money, she’s in.

      • Darla says:

        If you say so.

      • Lady D says:

        What makes you think she was down and out, Darla? She’s still making movies, with both Disney and Marvel to boot, she’s still helping the downtrodden, she never lost her fan base or her popularity, so what or who had her “widely considered over and out?” Just curious here Darla, not looking for a fight.

      • Everley says:

        I think Darla is talking about the hit jobs written by The Hollywood Reporter and Page 6 that her career was over because of her “behaviour” towards a well liked Pitt.

  13. crogirl says:

    “while he is a relatively calm person, he can only be pushed so far”
    LOL sure Brad, that’s why your kids needed trauma therapist.

  14. anp says:

    Perhaps he wants to deflect from is MIR.

  15. B n A fan says:

    Last week the gossip magazines were saying they are finally getting along. This week he’s demanding she signs the divorce papers, decisions, decisions, who to believe. I’m minding my own business, they are rich and good looking, not my business.

  16. Greta says:

    The most interesting thing about this nonsensical story is the timing. The private Judges mandate ends at the end of June. It’s June now, meaning this divorce should be announced any day now. Which makes this stupid story a non story if there was always a June deadline in place? So this isn’t a coincidence IMO. Time will tell I suppose.

    Angelina hasn’t asked for spousal support at all as far as we’re aware. They are in the money stretch I’m guessing & have been since custody was bifurcated in November last year, her lawyers Hersh Mannis seem to be handling things now.

    Pitt finally handed his financial disclosure forms 6 months after Angelina on the 12th of April, the same date she then filed the necessary paperwork for termination of status. Also curious the Sun had that bullshit story about “Angelina begging Pitt to take her back” a few hours before all this was filed & made public in April. So hhhmm makes you wonder what’s coming this time ??

  17. Cee says:

    Another garbage story that other tabloids pick up and run with. If Brad really cared about his kids as his or want us to believe then he needs to speak up and tell the truth. He didnt have a problem about Straight Pride parade. He always uses Angie to deflect negative stories about himself.

  18. maya8 says:

    The number of smear campaigns against her over the years is insane , and yet she’s still one of the most popular people on the planet. Why so much hate though, i never understood.

    • Sierra says:

      She is a woman, independent and a feminist.

      Women hate her because she is beautiful, men hate her because she is independent & a feminist.

      • ANDREA1 says:

        WORD @Sierra

      • otaku fairy... says:

        +1. I think there’s some overlap though, and also more to it. She’s attractive, takes up space, has not always fallen in line with the traditional good girl script, is successful, has flaws and has struggled publicly with weaknesses, and is independent and feminist. Just one or two of those things in a woman are enough to stir up resentment in men and women.

      • Eve says:

        @Sierra and Otaku Fairy:

        Right. On. The. Money.

  19. Marry says:

    Good for him

    • Hmmm says:

      Nah good for her. She filed to be single and also to remove his name. How much clearer does she have to be?

      Should she run down the street or run to every media screaming about how much she wants to be divorced? I’m confused. She had to push for single status because he kept filing extensions.

  20. JoJo says:

    The Sun is about as reliable/believable/truthful as Trump.

  21. Hmmm says:

    When he uses the sun in this way we know Angelina is doing or filing something he doesn’t like. It’s predictable.

    Like last time with the b.s angie wants him back story and within hours it was revealed that ANGELINA filed a bunch of paperwork including bifurcation and a name change.

    What is wrong with him? Serious question.

    • 2bounce4u says:

      I take it he wants you to think he is doing the dumping. Majority of readers do not dig deeper.

  22. Greta says:

    We don’t know these people and never will I’m aware. We’re all just guessing/ speculating mostly based on who we like or don’t like, and educated guesses in some cases. None of us have inside knowledge, but some things aren’t guesses.
    1- Custody was bifurcated in November last year & a judgment filed with the court, meaning the judge signed off on an agreement. It’s on the court site.
    2 Angelina submitted her financial disclosure forms last year in October
    3 Pitt finally submitted his financial disclosure forms April the 12th this year 6 months after she did.
    4 Angelina then submitted certain documents necessary for bifurcation/ terminating legal status on the 12th of April.
    5 As per filed court documents, the very expensive private Judge on this case has been retained until June 30th when his mandate expires. That means that was the deadline they set to settle it all. If they’ve met this deadline, it means their divorce is imminent. These are facts.

    • Sidewithkids says:

      Thanks for breaking this down Greta.

      Also, those net worths are wrong. Angie is worth $160 mil while he’s worth $240 mil. That’s from Forbes, which I believe more.

  23. Andrea says:

    My best friend has been separated from his wife 2 1/2 years now, she even bought her own house and they are still not divorced!

  24. CA Family Code says:

    I just read the same story on DM. Everyone in the comments are absolutely vicious toward Jolie. The story makes no sense. There have been no hearings set and there have been no documents filed since 4/12/19. There is no motion on calendar asking for sanctions. I truly do not get this. It takes forever in high asset cases to file FINAL Declarations of Disclosure (financials etc) and since Pitt only filed his PRELIMINARY Dec of Disclosure less than 2 months ago, this part of the divorce would not be finished. They have extended the private judge to 12/31/19 for a reason. But they are legally divorced.

  25. serena says:

    “Angelina was trying to delay the process in a bid to win Brad back. But he turned her down in favour of trying to keep things harmonious for the sake of their six children”………… How delusional and typical. Now he cares about the sake of his children? If he truly does he should stop planting this bs stories in the press, nobody with a brain believes them.

  26. Sidewithkids says:

    This story is from the Sun. It’s a huge lie and only his stans or crazies believe it. Another cray story about her wanting him back. Please. All these stories just tells me he wants her back still. That’s really what’s happening here. The divorce must be almost final and BP wants to look like he really wanted it done w/ before it is finalized. It’s his insane way of making himself look good, but in all honestly he looks cray and he has throughout this whole process to me. I really dislike the guy and have lost a whole lot of respect for him.

  27. Sidewithkids says:

    Also, I think he’s jealous. Angie will never go away, she’s a legend and a powerhouse in Hollywood. He still believes these lame smear jobs are working. They are not. Plus, I believe, all of those Keanu rumors out there w/ him joining The Eternals and the possibility of a hookup w/ Angie are getting under his skin. BP sees that y’all and he hates it, so he does things like this article so he can hurt her but she’s been so done w/ him he doesn’t understand these articles don’t hurt her. They prob make her stronger, to go get hers which she is doing and not just herself but for her kids too.

    • Hmmm says:

      He’s a narcissist. Look up how to dump a narcissist and you’ll see the same traits brad Pitt is exposing. “He needs to control the narrative and come out looking like thehero”. Therapist recommend exactly what it seems Angelina is doing —ignore the narcissist and limit all contact. Thankfully it doesn’t seem like he has much time with her kids and I’m sure they use nannies and assistants to drop off at his compound.

      • Christina says:

        Hmmm, you aren’t lying. Watching the Jolie-Pitt saga feels like watching my situation all over. All you can do is ignore. Same with Heard-Depp. These dudes need to feel powerful and in control because they lack self esteem, and their responses are normalized in cultures throughout the world (he just loves her so much, he was so hurt that he disparaged her/was still jealous/hit her/sued her/killed her). Again, ladies, please read Lundy Bancroft’s book, Why Does He Do That?. The book may surprise you. It makes it easier to see how abusive men function in the world.

      • jwoolman says:

        Drop-off and pick-up by neutral third parties seems pretty routine in such cases. The idea is to avoid the kids seeing any conflict between the parents.

  28. Sara6 says:

    She is in Colombia on her UNHCR mission. She does what she always does. He can smear her as much as he wants – it is him who looks pathetic.

  29. Shannon says:

    Gross. The ego is strong with this one, and I have honestly never cared for him. Even when the Angelina/Jennifer/Brad love triangle crap blew up in like 2005 or whatever, I honestly couldn’t see what either of them saw in him. I seriously doubt Angelina is pining over someone who was abusive (allegedly, I guess) towards one of her children.

  30. Lowrider says:

    At this point I blame Brad for this ongoing separation.

  31. CA Family Code says:

    I read on three separate outlets that there is “no longer animosity between Pitt and Jolie” Good for you two. Smart, loving parents Co-parent and as I have said, it’s been clear since Jolie moved in a mile from Pitt’s house, it’s been there intention to co-parent ever since.

  32. Ad says:

    That’s how Pitt operates, when he is losing he runs a smear campaign before the truth comes out, he is pathetic fool! Does he really care about the interest of his children? nope their & their friends can read what is written about them yet he continues to smear their mother.

  33. Sidewithkids says:

    Lol. Meanwhile, Angie living her life unbothered by this toxic man. He still mad after three years she left him. That’s what he wants people to forget, she left him. But you can’t forget the truth and that’s the truth. He needs to get over it and leave her alone.

    • Eve says:


      “That’s what he wants people to forget, she left him.”


      She dumped him like radioactive trash. Being the narcissist that he is, methinks he’ll NEVER get over that.

  34. No post says:

    Lets hope these stories are not written to give a story just to come here and hate or just to assocaite negatively you cant trust these people lol… He is not crazy to think she wants the actual him Or she to think he to want the actual her…it have to be something … Something like money or custody again if she is delaying…
    And i think Nobody “smear” her more than her own tendency…she never consider that because she is the other side of victim not a direct type..imo harsh but true…
    im expecting this to be over by july????
    I remember those predictions then. “They will break up with years of custody issue” or similar qoute. somethings come true but that probably was easy to predict once they come to broke up i guess….

  35. anp says:

    Reminder to some of the public she left him and filed for divorce. Please do not try to rewrite history.

  36. Ad says:

    There is a reason why she doesn’t sign it Not that she wants him but other reasons, maybe she doesn’t agree to what he is offering, financially etc. He says he hasn’t talk about the divorce but he is indrectly & via his PR machines. He something else!

  37. ChiaMom says:

    If I were her I wouldn’t mind being able to say “ the dicorce lasted longer than the marriage, and that’s all that needs to be said.” Oh wait, I can. It has its reasons and perks, none of them being I wanted to get back together with him .
