'The divorce is off!': Angelina Jolie 'stalls' legal split from Brad Pitt

Published: August 10, 2017


Hollywood’s A-list couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt called it quits last year, shaking our faith in fairy tales and forever afters.

However, if the recent rumour is to be trusted, Angelina has stalled divorce proceedings with Brad Pitt, friends of the stars claim.

A latest report by Us Weekly says multiple sources are claiming that the former power couple, who had a very public and very bitter split in September 2016, have not moved forward with proceedings to end their marriage.

It’s just been the hardest time: Angelina Jolie breaks silence on Brad Pitt split

One insider told the publication, “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.”

Apparently, the reason given for the stalling of legal proceedings is Brad coming clean about his boozing in an interview with GQ this past May.

A friend of Jolie revealed to Us Weekly that the commitment to self-improvement has struck a chord with the Salt star, who reportedly previously claimed she would consider taking Brad back ‘if he showed he was committed to raising a family’.



The source went on to add that Brad had ‘got sober to try and win her back’ and that the move to quit drinking was ‘all she ever wanted’.

Meanwhile, the insider claims, “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.”

A source told Daily Mail that the “divorce process has significantly slowed down but there has been no real change.” The insider claimed that the former couple “are getting along for the sake of their children.”

Brad Pitt has reportedly moved on from Angelina Jolie

The Fight Club actor, claimed to have quit alcohol and is now sipping cranberry juice and carbonated water in his GQ interview. He also admitted his drinking had been a problem and that his parenting style needed amending.

While partying at Glastonbury Festival in Somerset, south-west England, in June, Brad didn’t touch a drop of alcohol because he was facing weekly testing by his legal counsel.

A source told Daily Mail, “Brad didn’t touch a drop of alcohol all weekend and stuck to drinking English breakfast tea. He said he was being tested on a weekly basis by his legal counsel and didn’t want to f**k up being able to see his children.”

Angelina gave her first interview since separating from husband Brad in September 2016 to Vanity Fair for its September issue.

The Maleficent star addressed the split revealing that ‘things got bad’ between the two by summer of 2016, adding that “It’s just been the hardest time, and we’re just kind of coming up for air.”

Angelina and Brad, who became known as ‘Brangelina,’ met on the set of their film Mr. And Mrs. Smith in 2004 when Brad was still married to Jennifer Aniston.

They married in an intimate ceremony on August 23, 2014 in Correns, France.

    Ah, alcohol one of the main culprits yet again in causing distress. Good for Brad Pitt that he has quit drinking and is trying to reform. His liver, kidneys, will thank him! Yet more proof on the scourge of alcohol in human societies. Recommend
