The Sun: Angelina Jolie ‘wants to be back in a relationship’ with Brad Pitt, ORLY

Maleficent World Premiere

A month ago, The Blast and a few other outlets reported that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt were still working out the details of their divorce. The custody issue was mostly resolved last December, just before they were due in court (after more than a year of drama). But the actual divorce is moving at a snail’s pace. The Blast said that Angelina and Brad are still working on a bifurcation, which would mean they would be legally single and “divorced” but they would still be working out the actual details of their divorce settlement, mostly their money, property and jointly held assets. It’s taking forever. And now Dan Wooten at the Sun has an “explanation” for why it’s taking forever: Angelina is trying to win Brad back. Or something. Note the quotes and quo bono. This came from Brad’s camp.

Angelina Jolie wants to win back estranged husband Brad Pitt, The Sun can reveal. Her surprise marriage U-turn is behind the reason why she is dragging out tortuous divorce negotiations, sources close to the former couple say. We can disclose Brad has turned down the idea of a romantic reconciliation but wants a harmonious relationship for the sake of their kids.

Our source said: “Angelina has made it clear to Brad that she wants to be back in a relationship with him. She would like them to be a family again and doesn’t seem capable of moving on. That’s why she is making it so difficult for Brad with every detail of their divorce.”

Brad’s main concern is being a dad for their six children, the insider added. The source said: “Brad has consistently kept his mouth shut because all he cares about is his kids. Angelina is making it horrendous for him and drawing out the process, but it’s not going to make him consider going back. He just wants it all settled — in reality, this could have been over a year ago — but she won’t let go.”

[From The Sun]

I mean, come on. I genuinely feel like Angelina still hates Brad’s guts with every fiber of her being. She’s always been that kind of person – when she’s done with someone, she’s absolutely DONE. I am suspicious of the timing and the idea that Brad wants us to think that Angelina is holding up the divorce though. It was my understanding that Angelina has already filed her financial disclosures and financial information with the court, and they’re still waiting on Brad to disclose all of his finances. I’m not 100% positive about that, but for months now, it’s has absolutely felt like Angelina is the one moving this divorce forward and he’s the one holding it up. Anyway, of course I don’t believe that Angelina is hung up on Brad, but I’m curious as to why HE wants us to think that.

    Lol! Thanks for a good laugh. 😆

    • pria says:

      Ikr?! Lolol

      To answer the question though: Why does Brad want us (the public) to think she’s still hung up and wants him back?

      Obviously, that’s the only way he gets redemption, and truly rehabilitated in the public square. I’m sure he, and his PR flunkies think that convincing the public via weekly bloids’ that Angelina is pining and would take him back in a heartbeat – means his incident/abuse/addiction/ugly behavior that blew up his family, could be whitewashed if there was consensus that Angie wants him back.

      I’m sure his camp believes if they spread this tall tale, the public, always willing to demonize Angelina anyway, will collectively say, ‘SEE, Angelina made this whole thing up, nothing happened, now she wants him back- what a witch!! Brad has always been innocent!!’

    • Eleonor says:

      My first reaction was: AAAAAHAAAAAAAHAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Jess says:

    Ugh. I had a bland but generally positive view of Brad before this started. That obviously went way down after the plane incident but he somehow keeps looking more and more pathetic through all of this nonsense. PS if you’re right about the Jolie being DONE with people I’m jealous – even when people treat me like crap I’m really bad at being done with them.

    • JadedBrit says:

      @Jess I used to be the same when my self esteem was at rock bottom. (It’s not great now, tbh.) Just ask yourself – would you treat yourself that badly? Would you treat others that badly? If the answer is, as I suspect, a resounding “no”, then ask – what possible benefit could toxic and cruel people bring to your life?
      I now have a strict rule: three strikes and you’re out. (One literal strike and I’ll see you in court.) Endless bad behaviour will not be entertained or tolerated. It’s draining, exhausting, and frankly – you can’t fix people. They can only fix themselves. Allowing them to get away with murder merely validates and perpetuates their shittiness.

  3. roseplot says:

    Wasn’t Dan Wooten the guy that had that exclusive on Pitt & Theron dating? I recall it was the Sun that blasted that lie so I guess this is another.

  4. Kittycat says:

    The Sun as a source. Need I say more?

  5. serena says:

    Damn, Brad and his camp must be getting desperate. So after it didn’t work with the MIT professor, Charlize Theron and Jennifer Aniston he got back to Angelina.. how more pathetic can he be, I wonder?

    • lucy2 says:

      LOL I just posted the same below. It’s so obvious, isn’t it? I especially loved Charlize immediately shutting down the rumors.
      Desperation is not a good look, Brad!

  6. marmalazed says:

    This article is so mean! Angie has been “horrendous”?!

  7. Maya says:

    Lol yeah right Brad, keep telling yourself that. Stop coattailing on the mother of your children and instead focus on repairing your relationships with the children.

    I still find it funny how Brad’s fans continue to claim he is private when we haven’t seen a single picture of him with the children in 3 years.

    Angelina has received tremendous positive feedback for her new Marvel role, Maleficent 2 sneak peek has raised the expectations for its release, she is shooting a drama with potential awards success, producing TV show with Microsoft & BBC and that’s just the good things we know of so far.

    Angelina & the children are soaring and I wish them all the happiness.

    • Pringer says:

      Loud it Sis!.
      Angelina has been doing all the right things plus plenty of projects are been lined up for her. I am guessing Pitt didn’t see this coming I’m sure he and his cohorts thought Hollywood had shut the door on her (after what she did to him not minding everything that happened his by his own doing). Angelina is *THE ANGELINA JOLIE * and Hollywood will always want to work with her contrary to what page six and others would like people to believe.
      in my own opinion i think this story is out because he starts promoting that awful movie with Tarantino and i cant wait to see how his promotion goes.

      • Maya says:

        Angelina did a brilliant move by joining with Disney & now Marvel. Her fan base is growing daily because of that.

        She is actually living her life and taking care of the children at the same time. That is what Brad cannot handle and why he still continues his smear campaign.

        You are right that this is part of his movie promotion and I don’t think it will be a hit as people expect it to be. Many people are put off by Tarrantino & the actual subject so let’s see how it goes.

        And Brad sure did underestimate Angelina’s worth and power within Hollywood.

      • Pringer says:

        “And Brad sure did underestimate Angelina’s worth and power within Hollywood”.
        THIS MAYA THIS! So damn true!!!
        Super proud of her for not putting her head down and doing whats right for her and her kids regardless of all the smear campaigns and negative press she got after dumping his pathetic ass.

    • norah says:

      she looks happy and healthy like a burden has been lifted. thanks brad for that – good to see angelina looking less stressed now that you arent around

  8. Chaine says:

    What a gross story from Brad and his people. “She really loves me and has wanted to be with me this whole time. That’s why she accuse me of child abuse and alcoholism and hasn’t let me see my kids without supervision in three years!”

  9. Deanne says:

    Hahaha!!! Sure Brad, we believe she desperately wants you back. Could he be more pathetic?

  10. crogirl says:

    “Brad has consistently kept his mouth shut”

    • Carmen says:

      Suuuure he has. Whine whine whine, sob sob sob, mean ole Angie won’t let me see my kids, yadda yadda yadda ad nauseum. What a jerk.

  11. Lucia says:

    Brad wishes Angie wants him back. I always thought Brad was surprised that she was able and so willing to dispatch him as easily as she did. But I think this is typical British media misogyny.

    Speaking of British media misogyny. I hate The Sun. Their nasty OP-ed basically telling Meghan needs to have the baby at St. Mary’s to do the Lindo Tango is what the UK is owed after spending $3 million on the wedding was disgusting. The Sun writers are misogynists that portray women as desperate.

  12. Sash says:

    So basically he wants to get back together, then? Lol

    • Valiantly Varnished says:

      Basically lol. Meanwhile Angelina is living her best life looking healthier than she has in years. It’s amazing what leaving a toxic relationship can do for a woman’s happiness and well being.

  13. gingersnaps says:

    April fool’s have come and gone this year. Too early for next year’s.

  14. Littlefishmom says:

    I have no dog in this fight but these “papers” don’t think people actually BELIEVE this crap right?

    • JadedBrit says:

      @LittleFishMom Ah, were your hopeful sentiment but true, were the human race that intelligent… But if you consider that 50% fall into the back end of the bell curve, and that bogstandard average is the norm, add in the Dunning Kruger effect, tribalism and a profound lack of education and self awareness and… You have your basic Sun/Fail reader.

    • Kebbie says:

      The DM comments on this story are like “Don’t take her back, Brad! Not after what she did to you!” Lol so yeah some people do believe this stuff.

      I know not everyone likes Lainey, but she always says gossip is a buffet, and you choose what you want to believe. I think that’s definitely true.

  15. lucy2 says:

    This is HILARIOUS. Nice try, Team Brad.
    None of the other girlfriend stories have panned out (Neri, Charlize, Jen) so they’ve resorted to the story being Angelina wants him back but all he cares about is the kids.

    • Kebbie says:

      “I just want my kids back!”

      • Carmen says:

        Ya think?! His golden boy image is tarnished beyond repair so he wants his daddy image restored and he thinks whining about the kids will help him do that. I wonder how much time he actually spends with them, though? I’m betting not more than an occasional weekend.

  16. minx says:

    Sure she does 🙄

  17. Snazzy says:

    He’s probably irritated that she maybe joining the Marvel machine and kicking up her acting career a notch so she’ll be seen as perfectly happy and successful without him. It’s gotta hurt his ego so this is how he punches back. A bit like how Jonny Depp went after Amber Heard after the Aquaman success. These losers cannot handle their ex’s strength and success

  18. Minxx says:

    This sounds totally fabricated. I doubt it comes from a legit source. It’s The Sun, after all.

  19. Emily says:

    LOL, Okay Brad.

  20. Valiantly Varnished says:

    Lol. Angelina is a gemini like myself. When we’re done we are DONE. It’s why we get accused of being cold because once we are at that place feelings go out the window. We have zero *ucks to give. And Angelina was there that day on the plane and that hasnt changed for her. If anything it’s probably only gotten stronger because if Brad’s behavior and all the bashing of her in the press by his team. He’s confirmed for her that she made the right decision dumping him.
    As for why Brad and his team have leaked this non-story? It’s because Brad is single. And Brad is mot used to being single. And he doesn’t like it. Not only in his real life but also in the press. Brad still thinks he’s a heartthrob at 54. And Brad still thinks people care about his love life. Because Brad is delusional and so is his team. They don’t seem to get that most of us see him as a deadbeat abusive dad. I think Brad is still reeling – three years later – from the fact that Angelina left HIM. And hasn’t looked back. I actually think he wants HER back. Because of course he does.

  21. CA Family Code says:

    The following docs were filed with the child custody stip and order. Granted, they are sealed docs, so the detail is less clear, but it looks to me like the bifurcation and request for divorce was already filed. Pitt does not have to file his Dec of Disclosure yet in order to be divorced. Jolie already filed her Preliminary Dec of Disclosure in order to get an order of support. I think they should be divorced by June:

    11/21/2018 Appearance, Stipulations and Waivers (*Sealed Document* This appearance stipulation and waiver is submitted with and relates only to the judgment on the bifurcated issue of child custody and visitation )
    Filed by Respondent

    11/21/2018 Notice – Entry of Judgment (*Sealed Document* *Judgment on bifurcated issue of child custody and visitation. Jurisidcation is reserved over termination of marital status and over all financial issues. )
    Filed by Respondent

    11/21/2018 Judgment – Reserved Issues – Uncontested (*Sealed Document* Jurisdiction is reserved over termination of marital status and financial issues )
    Filed by Respondent

    • Hmmm says:

      LoL ground control, go pretend to be a lawyer on Just Jared. He does need to file his financial information to get divorced in California. He’s filed a bunch of extensions. Why?

      After he leaked information about Angelina and the kids when Angelina was working on maleficent in London… that was it. Aj said enough you deplorable person and asked for bifurcation… he then filed another extension. Whyyyy? He needs to sign the papers and let her go.

      • Carmen says:

        Evidently Golden Boy can’t let go. Once she’s gone, what’s he got left? There’s nothing sadder than a superannuated Hollywood has-been dragging out a contentious divorce to keep from slowly fading into obscurity.

      • Luna Lovegood says:

        Wow. Why the hostility. Ease up friend

    • CA Family Code says:

      Hmmm- He does not have to file the financials before the bifurcation. They can be divorced before working out the financials. I am not an attorney, but I do see the docket and like to deal with facts. I’m saying it looks like the bifurcated divorce was filed–I could be wrong. I don’t see any “extensions” filed at all…not sure what you are referring to.

      • Hmmm says:

        Yes, he did, he filed and Angelina immediately filed to terminate her marriage. It’s finally over because he finally filed what he needed to file after months of dragging his feet.

        She is finally free. Keep an eye for more hit pieces like the one above because obviously he’s not happy with how it ended.

      • CA Family Code says:

        I am not interested in conjecture. I do not know these people and don’t take it personally. The reason I posted yesterday that I knew that they would be divorced “by June” was based on what I saw on the court docket and I was right. That was my response to the bullsh^t story about her wanting to stay with him. I believe in dealing with the facts when it comes to court cases because I have been a paralegal in LA County since 1989.

      • OriginalCarol says:

        I am not a paralegal but I am friends with Google so getting the information is pretty easy and fast, lol.

        “Before you can file a motion for bifurcation, at minimum, you must have completed and served your Preliminary Declaration of Disclosure on the other party (Jolie did that last year and Pitt just did it yesterday per court filings). A Preliminary Declaration of Disclosure consists of serving a completed Schedule of Assets and Debts and Income and Expense Declaration on your spouse. These documents are essential to the California divorce proceedings as they disclose to each spouse the nature of the property and the income of each spouse. This way, both spouses should know the full nature and extent of all of the property of the marriage.”

        Why is the disclosure of assets and debts important? The requirement of disclosure of the marital property is pertinent to ensure that no one is attempting to hide his or her income, or claim that community property is actually his or her separate property, as in fair play of what belongs to you prior to the marriage goes back to you after the divorce.

      • Hmmm says:

        Dude, the link is all over twitter to the court filings. Lmao. The fans knew before people magazine because they look that stuff up. It’s the truth. He filed his disclosure and immediately after she filed the Fl107 or whatever it’s called for uncontested divorce and about 5 or six other things. Some are sealed some are not. She’s the petitioners. He finally stopped dragging his feet but he’s still planting bs.

        It’s time he leaves Angie and her kids alone. Even us weekly where y’all get the custody agreement from (🤪) says brad accepts that he will never have a relationship with some of angies kids. Welp. And y’all think she’s the one holding out… when everyone knows she does everything she does for her kids. No way is she wanting him back. Wake up, ground control.

  22. Hmmm says:

    Probably because she’s dating someone. I think she’s hooking up with a karate instructor. When her kids had a karate tournament their instructor was with Angelina. He dresses like billy bob and is basically her type.

    • Pas says:

      He’s happily married.

    • Lady D says:

      She’s seen with a guy so she must be banging him?

      • Hmmm says:

        She has claimed that she doesn’t like being single so chances are she’s moved on and is dating someone. The karate guy was just a guess. there was some other handsome tall man with her during a college tour she did with Maddox. Could be him. Who knows until she lets us know.

        The children will soon have a new dad and hopefully he treats them better than ex daddy dearest did.

  23. Karen2 says:

    Well he spoke up for the LACMA refurbishment & looked OK (if a bit red) so at least hes still got outside interests & friends.

    • Hmmm says:

      im sure that made him feel important lol Thomas housego wa of course right by his side. It seems like he can’t do anything without TH and his wife. I’m surprised he had anything to say about architecture with how make it right foundation flopped so horrendously.

  24. ojulia123 says:

    HA! No way. I think given the opportunity, BP would take Angelina back in a heartbeat.

  25. Ad says:

    The Unbelievable The SUN, Dan Wooton edit untrue/ fake news most of the time. As soon as I saw it was published by the SUN I knew it was fake news. Angelina & her children seems to have recovered & move on why go back to a very unhealthy relationship.

  26. ShazBot says:

    or maybe it has to do with that story on how Maddox has chosen a college, and she’s so proud and excited for him, and Brad has no idea what it is.

    • Hmmm says:

      Anyone who thinks Angelina wants him back really don’t pay attention to facts. If brad and Maddox were on good terms he would be touring colleges with them. He is nowhere to be seen on important days for his kids. So obviously Maddox still hates him and that nixes any reconciliation between brad and Angelina.

  27. anp says:

    What a weak and delusional so called man.

  28. d says:

    Since splitting, they both look years younger and like a weight has come off their shoulders. I don’t believe this came from either of them and I don’t believe either side wants to get back together – ever. Do they love their kids? Yes, I believe they both do. I think there’s probably a lot going on with those two and their kids that very few people really know about. But any titbit of anything, no matter how remote, sure generates revenue…

  29. laura-j says:

    I’m picturing Angie smirking with a goblet of wine Cersei style.

  30. Louise says:

    I don’t belief that story either, it’s just a stupid story. But I don’t exactly understand the hate of Brad. He had a drinking problem and from all accounts he got help for it. Something happened with Maddox but we don’t know what. Everything I’ve seen since the divorce announcement sounds like he has gotten his act together. He has followed all the court appointed actions. Kept up his side of the deal. I know it’s good to make one person the bad guy in a story. But can’t we just believe that he’s trying to do the the right thing by his kids? My mom was an alcoholic and she made some big mistakes butI love her dearly and forgive her for those mistakes. Besides, before the divorce no one ever said a bad word about him. Ever. The same honestly can’t be said about her. Or her smear tactics in the press. I think it might be time to give him a break.

    • Lucia says:

      Because he has gone out of his way to try and rip Angelina’s reputation to shreds with his PR machine (allegedly).

      • Louise says:

        Exactly. Allegedly. We don’t know for sure. And majority of the people on here have always hated him. Even from the beginning. And honestly I don’t feel like the press for her has been that bad. To me she still looks like a caring mom. I don’t think any of this has hurt her career or image. But of course I could be wrong.

  31. Hmmm says:

    Just based on whatever they filed today proves who was wasting time. He finally submitted his information and Jolie immediately filed something right after. Pretty sure they are now divorced.

    So many of his fans said he didn’t need to submit anything but he FINALLY did only a year + after she filed hers. LoL

    His team should sthu about her wanting him back now. LoL

  32. Mego says:

    Well this proves the Sun publishes untrue stories with impunity. I think Angelina is trying to get what is due her and the children financially and nothing more.

    • OriginalCarol says:

      Or the Sun story is Pitt’s preemptive move to get ahead of the divorce news being finalized. At last. He wants the optics being that she’s the one who had delayed the divorce process for the past two years+ and that he’s done with her first. That He’s the one that did the leaving and not she who filed for divorce. He actually had his lawyer announced to the media that he’s the one who actually wanted to bifurcate their divorce first after Jolie’s lawyer seeks to file the bifurcation. Dude is all about image here. Petty much Pitt.

  33. abezel says:

    These two’s divorce stories bore me. They are bound for life thanks to their six kids, and hopefully they will resolve it quickly and amicably. Angelina used to look great in colours and jeans and stylish outfits. She’s gone Dallas and power outfits and more formal outings and dresses way too old for her age. I look foward to her upping her red carpet game again. Remember her super preg in a stunning green dress on red carpet.

  34. I Didn't Do It says:

    From what I am seeing, they are now single.

    • Lena says:

      They are now legally single after like 3 years but still have not settled their divorce. Which will take another how many years? Exhausting. The lawyers are the only winners here.
