Poor Angelina Jolie. Ever since she and Brad Pitt announced their divorce in September 2016, things have essentially been a mess. But despite their ongoing custody battle, arguments, and more, the recent two-year anniversary of their split has reportedly taken a toll on the famed actress.
“It’s really dawned on Angelina recently how empty her life is without Brad in it,” a source recently told Hollywood Life, adding that the 43-year-old has “pretty much gone through all seven stages of grieving a break-up now.”
And they haven’t all been easy. “Even though the worst was probably the anger stage, she’s been struggling a lot with the last one, redirected hope,” the insider shared. “Moving forward and knowing that she will be OK without Brad, and that they will never be together again, has been a lot for Angelina to process, even though she’s pretty much accepted that fact now.”
The couple previously met on the set of Mr. and Mrs. Smith in 2004 and just one year later, Brad announced his divorce from Jennifer Aniston. The duo has six kids together: Maddox, 17, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 10. “They shared so many good times, not to mention six kids together, and a large part of her still believes that he was the love of her life and her soulmate,” the source added.
That said, it’s allegedly been “really tough” for the mom-of-six to move on, understandably. “Angelina hates to think she will never meet somebody else again, but she struggles to imagine herself with anybody but Brad,” the insider claimed. “The truth is, she just can’t envision what that person would look like, or who they would be, other than Brad, and in all honestly, she knows that ship has well and truly sailed.” Here’s hoping Angie finds love again!
