Updated August 10, 7:45 a.m. PT: Not so fast, guys. Our report from earlier this week that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are reconciling may not be entirely accurate thanks to some clarifications per another inside source. While one source told Us Weekly that they’re working on their relationship, new information has come out since that story was published to dispel it. This new source came forward to Entertainment Tonight to say that’s not the case.
“There’s a pause in the [divorce] process because they both made children the priority, but nothing significant has changed in their relationship,” the new insider said, adding that they have no ill will toward one another right now, and “both have demonstrated great civility recently for their kids.”
But that alone doesn’t mean reconciliation, the source said.
“There isn’t one in the works,” the insider continued, saying the divorce just seems like its being dragged out because “these things always take a long time, and right now their main focus is on their family and the kids.”
We really hoped they might fix things, but we also kind of knew it was too good to be true.
Um, hold the phone. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie might be calling off their divorce?!
That’s what a source close to them is saying, and if true, it would be a very interesting development for the pair. “The divorce is off,” an insider told Us Weekly in this week’s issue. “They haven’t done anything to move it forward in several months and no one thinks they are ever going to.”
That’s honestly shocking considering Jolie and Pitt have been separated for months now and have made it appear as if they are going to co-parent even if they aren’t together. Additionally, while Pitt has stirred up rumors around his dating again, many reports indicated Jolie was keeping to herself. For months now, it’s appeared that these two were moving on and away from each other.
But allegedly she has changed her tune about Pitt entirely. “She’s still so in love with him,” the source alleged to Us.
Of course, Jolie isn’t the only one having a change of heart here. Pitt, who admitted in an interview with GQ that he was having some pretty serious alcohol problems around the time of the split, has reportedly quit booze cold turkey. “He got sober to try and win her back,” the source said. “He knew he had a problem that he had to take care of. And that’s all she ever wanted.”
All we’re waiting for now is the announcement from the allegedly reconciled couple; the insider added, “Everyone thinks they are going to get back together. It wouldn’t be surprising if they announced that they’re calling it off and trying to work things out.”
This week, with the end of Chris Pratt and Anna Faris’ marriage as well as Amber Heard and Elon Musk’s blossoming romance, we needed this news. Bless Brangelina.
