A lot of the bitterness between the two stemmed from the custody battle for their six children, and according to Hollywood Life, now that some time has passed, the couple’s future is looking a bit brighter. “The ice between [Pitt] and Angie is starting to thaw,” a source told the publication. “A week ago, it seemed impossible that they would ever get past this, but things are shifting. There does seem to be a glimmer of hope.”
The publication notes that the glimmer of hope comes from the recent reunion that Pitt had with his son, Maddox, following the “airplane incident.” According to the source, this reconciliation was “monumental.” They added that, “It’s the start of forgiveness and healing for everyone. It was very emotional and painful. but a huge step in the right direction.”
The decision for Jolie and Pitt to divorce has been made even harder by the fact that they share six children, and they appear to be an incredibly close family. In fact, a recent report from TMZ claims that Brad Pitt will not file a legal response to Angelina Jolie’s divorce petition because it would negatively affect his children, which seems to prove just how much his family means to him.
Pitt reportedly wants joint legal and physical custody, “but if he actually filed papers it would draw the battle lines.” Jolie reportedly feels the same way, as she agrees that healing the family is a priority, and this means not starting a legal war. Although the publication seems to suggest that a divorce is still in the works, they note that there’s a good chance that it will be settled privately.
If the couple does decide to call off their divorce, it’s not going to go back to normal overnight. It will be a long, difficult and extremely emotional journey as they try to work out their differences. However, according to the Hollywood Life source, Pitt is willing to do whatever he can to make it work because he “misses them all so much, he would do anything to have his family back together.”
Could things still work out for Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie? Or does the fact that they’re being more civil toward each other just suggest that they now simply have their priorities (in this case, their children) in order?
