Angelina Jolie is one of the most talked-about women in the world, making viral news for everything from her new Marvel role to her work as a philanthropist, recently donating $1 million to a charity helping underprivileged children during the coronavirus pandemic.
It is her separation from Brad Pitt that is still making headlines however, despite filing for divorce almost four years ago.
From their ‘bifurcating’ their marriage to their custody arrangements over their six children – Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Knox and Vivienne, ‘Brangelina’ is still all anyone can talk about.
This week their relationship made headlines as reports emerged that the former couple were spending time together.
According to insiders, the former couple are working hard to co-parent in a healthy way, with a source telling Entertainment Weekly: ‘Brad and Angelina have come a very long way and they're finally in a place where they both want to work together to raise their kids.’
The source continued: ‘They have no plans to reconcile and any communication between them is regarding their children's needs and future.
‘They chose to live close to one another so they could easily go back and forth with the kids. This week wasn't the first time Brad and Angelina have spent time together at her home. They are in a much more amicable relationship.
‘Brad and Angelina want their kids to be healthy and happy and to have the support of both of their parents. It has taken years to heal and they finally are in a place where they can co-parent in a really healthy way.’
This comes after Angelina's comments in Vogue India where she explained her reasons for filing for divorce from Brad all those years ago.
'I separated for the wellbeing of my family,' Angelina explained to the publication. 'It was the right decision. I continue to focus on their healing.’
Well, that’s that.
