Brangelina’s di­vorce called off

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - FRONT PAGE -

LOS AN­GE­LES: An­gelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have re­port­edly called off their di­vorce af­ter he “got sober to try to win her back”.

Jolie filed for di­vorce last Septem­ber af­ter Brad al­legedly at­tacked his son Mad­dox.

Pitt has fiercely de­nied these claims, but told GQ mag­a­zine in May that he had a drink­ing prob­lem.

He spoke about child cus­tody is­sues and said he had been work­ing with Jolie as “no one wins in court”.

Af­ter months of in­ac­tiv­ity, sources said the cou­ple have put their sep­a­ra­tion on hold.

An in­sider told US Weekly: “The di­vorce is off. They haven’t done any­thing to move it for­ward in sev­eral months and no one thinks they are ever go­ing to. He’s got sober to try and win her back.

“He knew he had a prob­lem that he had to take care of. And that’s all she ever wanted.”

The pair have been to­gether since 2007 and mar­ried for two years. They met on the set of Mr and Mrs Smith 13 years ago. He was still mar­ried to Friends star Jen­nifer An­nis­ton.

The cou­ple have six chil­dren: Mad­dox, 16, Pax, 13, Za­hara, 12, Shiloh, 11, and nine-year-old twins Knox and Vivi­enne.

De­spite mov­ing into a Los An­ge­les man­sion in June with­out her hus­band, Jolie is still said to be “in love” with Pitt.

She re­cently said she is thank­ful they can re­main civil for the chil­dren’s sake, telling Van­ity Fair: “(Our life­style) was not in any way a neg­a­tive.

“That is and will re­main one of the won­der­ful op­por­tu­ni­ties we were able to give our chil­dren. It’s just been the hard­est time and we’re just kind of com­ing up for air.”

In May, Pitt told GQ: “I can’t re­mem­ber a day since I got out of col­lege when I wasn’t booz­ing or had a spliff or some­thing… I’m re­ally, re­ally happy to be done with all of that.” – Daily Mail
