‘It’s off!’ Angelina Jolie ‘stalls’ divorce after Brad Pitt quits drinking


Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have reportedly put their divorce on the back burner.

The actress filed for divorce in September 2016, after Brad was accused of an altercation between him and son Maddox during a flight to LA, which was allegedly due to drink.

A bitter split followed, with Angelina plumping for sole custody of their six children and moving out of their family home.

However, it’s now been reported that the couple have but the brakes on their divorce, following Brad Pitt’s honest interview with GQ in which he detailed quitting drink and going into therapy.

A friend close to Jolie, 42, told Us Weekly that they have decided to stall things for the sake of their six children, Maddox, 15; Pax, 13; Shiloh, 11; Zahara, 12; and twins Vivienne and Knox, nine, and in light of the fact Brad has stayed sober for nearly eleven months.

An insider said: ‘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.’

The source added that Brad ‘got sober to try and win her back’ and that the move to quit drinking was ‘all she ever wanted’, while an insider insisted: ‘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.’

However, it looks like the move might not be to reignite their relationship.

A source told DailyMail.com that the ‘divorce process has significantly slowed down but there has been no real change’.

Brad, 53, recently appeared at Glastonbury, where it’s claimed he drank nothing but tea, completely shunning alcohol.

He claimed in his GQ interview to have given up the booze immediately after their split, opting instead for cranberry juice and fizzy water.

Reps for both have been contacted for comment.
