Despite earlier reports that Brad Pitt and his estranged wife Angelina Jolie could be putting their divorce negotiations on hold while considering getting back together, sources close to the Hollywood A-listers are saying that there is no talk of reconciliation whatsoever.
In recent weeks, the rumor was that Pitt and Jolie were putting the divorce discussions on the back burner and thinking of rekindling their romance. However, TMZ sources say that there has been too much damage done between the two to get back together.
The legal teams representing the Mr. and Mrs. Smith co-stars are currently hashing it out behind closed doors in regards to both child custody and property settlements. Also, the divorce is full steam ahead.
One primary reason that the parents of six will never reunite is that Jolie made claims that Pitt abused their children. The War Machine actor was ultimately exonerated of the allegations after an investigation.
Earlier this month, contradictory reports surfaced claiming that Pitt and Jolie were headed for a reconciliation. A source spoke out about the two during an interview with Us Weekly saying the divorce is in limbo.
“They haven’t done anything to move it forward
The source also claimed that those close to Pitt and Jolie could see them reuniting.
“Everyone thinks they are going to get back together,” the source said. “It wouldn’t be surprising if they announced that they’re calling it off and trying to work things out.”
Since their split in September of last year, the Maleficent actress has been taking over primary parenting duties of their six children, Maddox, 16, Pax, 13, Zahara, 12, Shiloh, 11, and 9-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.
Pitt has been open about wanting to keep their children at the top of the priority list.
"I heard one lawyer say, 'No one wins in court—it's just a matter of who gets hurt worse,'" he said during a candid interview with GQ this year. "And it seems to be true. You spend a year just focused on building a case to prove your point and why you're right and why they're wrong, and it's just an investment in vitriolic hatred. I just refuse. And fortunately, my partner in this agrees. It's just very, very jarring for the kids, to suddenly have their family ripped apart."
