Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are often in the headlines either because of their kids, divorce, or relationship. But no matter how messy their connection seems to be, multiple sources confirmed they remain amicable.
They have been in a messy divorce and custody battle, but Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are on good terms. Despite the rumors that continuously surround the two, it looks like nothing can break the bond they have.
A fine relationship
“Things between Brad and Angelina are better than they have been,” a source told Us Weekly. “They’re more cordial — they’re aiming toward resolutions that work for each of them.”
Also called as Brangelina, they were together for 12 years. After their two-year marriage, they surprised the world when they announced their split in 2016. They then went to a famous custody battle of their six kids: Maddox, 18, Pax, 16, Zahara, 15, Shiloh, 13, and the twins, Knox and Vivienne, 11.
Finally, they have come to a settlement, where Brad Pitt can see the children every few days. However, it’s only the younger ones as he’s, reportedly, not in contact with Maddox and Pax due to their alleged strained relationship. Anyhow, he still gets updates about them from Angelina Jolie.
Despite their separation, the Maleficent star is still impressed by her former husband’s “continued sobriety.” In 2017, the 56-year-old actors revealed he’d given up alcohol.
But, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, he hasn’t had the chance to attend his usual Alcoholics Anonymous meetings. Thankfully, he remains in regular contact with his support network.
Brad Pitt’s inspiration
His close friend, Alia Shawkat, may have inspired Brad Pitt. Rumors have it that after his split from Angelina Jolie, he is getting by with the help of the 31-year-old actress.
“They have an incredibly tight bond and trust each other implicitly,” another source told Us Weekly. “Alia’s been a wonderful help for Brad during this major transition.”
The Once Upon a Time in Hollywood star hasn’t dated anyone publicly since his recent divorce. However, he recently made headlines when he and Alia Shawkat were often seen out and about. They were first spotted attending an art exhibit in November 2019.
“They’re hanging out plenty,” the insider added. “They’re only about 10 minutes away from each other, so Alia will bike or walk to Brad’s place whenever they have time to chill.
Brad Pitt and Alia Shawkat are said to have a “very organic and easy” relationship. Hence, she may be a breath of fresh air for him after his romance with Angelina Jolie.
