There were two things that I thought I knew about Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. One, that they’d hate each other forever, and two, that they’d probably break the record for the world’s most drawn-out divorce. Their divorce is taking forever to finalize, but it looks like they don’t hate each other nearly as much as I thought. Or at least they’re getting good at hiding it. Because according to a source who spoke to Us Weekly, it sounds like Angelina and Brad are actually appearing to play nice for the kids.
It’s been over three and a half years since Angelina filed for divorce. And despite several attempts to be decent people during their divorce and subsequent custody battle, it hasn’t always worked out like that. It got so tense that Brad found himself on the outs with Maddox Jolie. But recently, we’ve heard rumors that Angelina and Brad got it together long enough to work on a school plan for their 5 underage kids (they’re reportedly going to get a traditional education experience once the COVID-19 lockdown is lifted). It wasn’t a full moon on the day they decided to work together to help their kids. The source says that they’re finally working as a team.
“Things between Brad and Angelina are better than they have been. They’re more cordial – they’re aiming toward resolutions that work for each of them.”
I don’t know who their source is, but based on the inclusion of the word “cordial,” I’m inclined to believe Us Weekly got their hot tip from Anne of Green Gables.
One of the alleged reasons why Angelina and Brad are suddenly getting along is because she likes that he has remained sober. A source says that Angelina is, “impressed” with the work Brad has done on himself, and the source adds that Brad has been in regular contact with his support team during the COVID-19 lockdown.
Another source tells Us Weekly that Angelina and Brad have recently worked out their own visitation schedule. The deal two years ago was that Angelina and Brad would split custody almost down the middle, with Brad getting a little less than 50% of the time with their kids. Now Brad will reportedly get the younger kids every few days. The source doesn’t specify which kids are the “younger kids.” The current custody situation includes Pax (16), Zahara (15), Shiloh (13), and twins Knox and Vivienne (11). A source previously told Us Weekly that Brad isn’t in contact with Maddox or Pax. So maybe that means Brad is seeing the twins on the days he’s not seeing Alia Shawkat. Who knows? All we know is that Angelina and Brad have been better for their kids, even if they still secretly hate each other. The only person who knows the truth is their dentist. Only they know how many molars have been cracked while attempting to clench their teeth tight enough to keep from muttering, “Hi asshole, I still hate you!” from the car window.
