Fol­low­ing their dra­matic (and very pub­lic) split, are Brangelina about to rec­on­cile?

Look (UK) - - CONTENTS -

Once upon a time, a young An­gelina Jolie spoke af­fec­tion­ately about Brad Pitt. She called him ‘the best man’, the ‘best fa­ther’ and re­ferred to him as ‘the clos­est per­son to me’. Fast-for­ward al­most a decade and af­ter a ro­mance that seemed so strong, the pair split and are the midst of a dra­matic di­vorce. But are they re­ally over for good? Ac­cord­ing to our sources, the pair are back in touch and now An­gelina’s hav­ing some ma­jor re­grets.

‘An­gelina’s had to be strong for the kids, but in the past two weeks she’s bro­ken her self-im­posed vow not to talk to Brad and they’ve been in touch through text,’ says our source. ‘She’s be­ing re­ally strong, but she’s been think­ing about their split a lot and won­der­ing if she was hasty.’

In fact, we’re told that while the two have been tex­ting things have thawed so much they’re even plan­ning a re­union next month.

On top of that, the cou­ple’s chil­dren con­stantly talk about Brad, 53, and ask when they can see him more. It’s all built up to An­gelina, 41, want­ing to reach out to him.

‘An­gelina misses him and the bond they used to share,’ says our source. ‘She’s pin­ing for the love that they had in the early days of their ro­mance. She’s start­ing to re­think things and she’s won­der­ing if she made a mis­take.’

The pair ended their re­la­tion­ship in Septem­ber 2016 with An­gelina cit­ing ‘ir­rec­on­cil­able dif­fer­ences’ as her rea­son for fil­ing for di­vorce. At the time, Ange’s state­ment (read by her lawyer) re­vealed she was do­ing it for ‘the health of the fam­ily’ – some­thing Brad, un­der­stand­ably, took very per­son­ally.

Last week, the ac­tress broke her five-month si­lence for the first time with a string of emo­tional tele­vi­sion in­ter­views. But it was in an ap­pear­ance with the BBC that she re­vealed some real home truths.

‘It was a very dif­fi­cult time and we’re a fam­ily – and we’ll get through this time and hope­fully be a stronger fam­ily for it,’ said Ange.

‘My fo­cus is my chil­dren – our chil­dren – and my fo­cus is find­ing this way through. As I said, we are and for­ever will be a fam­ily. That’s how I’m cop­ing. I’m cop­ing with find­ing a way through to make sure that this some­how makes us stronger and closer.’

As well as those ad­mis­sions, An­gelina’s views about her ex seemed to have come full cir­cle. In a sep­a­rate in­ter­view with Good Morn­ing Amer­ica, the ac­tress called Brad ‘a won­der­ful fa­ther’.

‘She’s had a huge change of heart af­ter ev­ery­thing that’s hap­pened,’ says our source. ‘Brad’s stepped up and it’s made her re­con­sider ev­ery­thing she felt so sure about pre­vi­ously.’

But it doesn’t mean they’re get­ting back to­gether yet. Ac­cord­ing to our in­sid­ers, the fact that they’re talk­ing at all is a huge step in the right di­rec­tion.

‘An­gelina in­sists she won’t be jump­ing back into a re­la­tion­ship with Brad,’ adds an­other source. ‘She knows the first step is to meet him and they need to move on to­gether and put the kids first. For Brad, it’s the first glim­mer of hope from her.’

‘I don’t know what the fu­ture has in store for us,’ Ange has said pre­vi­ously. We think there's plenty more drama to come from these two.
