Will these two give it a rest already? It feels like Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have been at each other’s throats every step of the way following their 2016 split, and sadly, it doesn’t appear as if things are going to get better any time soon. The former couple is simply unable to move past two core issues — and it’s keeping their divorce in an awkward holding pattern.
While both Brad and Angelina are “eager to get on with their new and separate lives,” according to Life & Style, they have yet to do so. “Brad keeps telling friends that they’re inches away from signing off on an agreement,” another source said, “but then a new wrinkle develops.”
Question is, what are those core issues? Unsurprisingly, one of them is custody over their six children — Maddox, 16, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 11, and twins Vivienne and Knox, both 9. “Brad’s goal is joint physical and legal custody,” the source revealed. “but Angelina has been immovable on that point.”
The other ongoing battle is over one piece of property — the Château Miraval estate and vineyard in France, which Brad and Angelina purchased together before their 2014 marriage on the estate’s grounds. In recent years, it’s netted them a fortune thanks to the success of Miraval rosé wine and olive oil.
“Angelina has been pushing Brad to sell the estate and give her half the money, but he wants to keep it,” the insider said. “Brad has really loved renovating the buildings on the grounds and working with the vintner and olive oil maker. He’s there for every harvest, and he wants to keep the legacy going.” It is, the insider added, “the one possession he’s intent on hanging on to. It’s his baby.”
Whether the pair will come to an agreement remains to be seen. What we do know is that Brad has wasted no time moving on. He’s been linked to several women since his separation from Angelina — including his former flame, Jennifer Aniston. But don’t expect Angie to be jealous. She’s moved on too!
“There’s a millionaire British philanthropist who she’s been quietly seeing for over a year now,” a close friend told Life & Style. “Gradually, their romance blossomed into real love.” Good for her! Hopefully now that they both have new love in their lives, they can move on once and for all.
