Report: Angeline Jolie, Brad Pitt ‘At An Impasse,’ Not Even ‘Close To Settling Their Divorce’
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are reportedly at “an impasse” when it comes to custody of their six children and are “not even close to settling their divorce” after splitting two years ago.
“Brad and Angelina are not even close to settling their divorce. They are so hung up on dealing with the custody issues that they haven’t even exchanged any financial documents yet, which is routine in divorces and one of the first steps people take in the filing process,” a source close to the pair told E! News Tuesday. (RELATED: Report: Angelina Jolie Given Ultimatum Regarding Custody Of Her And Brad Pitt’s Kids)
“There will be no settlement or resolution anytime soon,” the source added. “They are kind of at an impasse at this point because the focus has been on custody; nothing else has been hashed out yet.”
The source continued sharing that both Pitt and Jolie, are interested in “working out the details of the divorce,” but have been “unable to reach an agreement that they are both happy about.”
“Things with Angelina have been strained as they work things out,” another insider close to Pitt explained.
In June, a judge reportedly gave the 43-year-old actress an ultimatum that if she doesn’t fix the kids “relationship with their father” she was in jeopardy of losing custody of their six kids, according to The Blast.
“If the minor children remain closed down to their father and depending on the circumstances surrounding this condition, it may result in a reduction of the time they spend with [Jolie] and may result in the Court ordering primary physical custody to [Pitt],” documents obtained by the outlet read.
The remarks follow an incident in 2016 when Pitt was accused of child abuse aboard a private jet involving one of the couple’s kids. He was later cleared of the charge.
The popular Hollywood couple announced they were separating back in 2016 after being together for more than 12 years. The couple’s custody battle became very public for a few months after Jolie said she wanted full custody of the children. Later, the two agreed to keep things private for the sake of the kids and seal the custody documents.
