It seems that every time Brad Pitt and his estranged wife, Angelina Jolie, take one step forward in their divorce process, they end up making three backward.
In a new report that surfaced via In Touch Weekly, it was revealed that Jolie and the father of her children were set to meet and finally sign a divorce and custody agreement when she had a change of mind.
Jolie dropped the bombshell in late 2016 that she was splitting from Pitt.
The former power couple shares six children — Maddox, 16, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 11, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 9 — and had a worldwide romance that lasted over a decade.
According to reports, while Pitt is eager to settle the matter and move on with his life and be able to spend more time with his clan, Jolie, on the other hand, is said to be moving at a snail’s pace.
An insider spoke to the publication and had this to say: “The process had been moving forward privately and amicably. They were just days away from finally signing off on their [divorce and custody] agreement. Brad was looking forward to spending a large amount of quality time with the kids this coming summer.”
The person went on to reveal: “Angie suddenly reversed course. She felt that Brad was pushing too hard to resolve the situation to his benefit and felt she was losing control.”
The source continued: “Now it is looking like the divorce will not be finalized at least until the end of the year. It has quickly gone from amicable to hostile, and sparked a new war over the kids.”
Another insider claimed that the duo has not been able to agree on how to raise their children and it is causing tension.
The second individual told Hollywood Life: “Brad and Angelina have often been at war over how to raise their six children. Angelina wants to drag the kids to red carpets, award shows, and exotic trips around the world while Brad wants the opposite. While Angelina sees the children like her best friends and takes them on dates to her award show appearances, Brad has been trying to instill in his children the wholesome, humble, midwest values he grew up learning.”
Jolie is apparently taking their six children to England over the summer.
