Could one of Hollywood’s most shocking relationship break-ups be about to take a massive u-turn? Reports suggest the ongoing Brangelina divorce could be on hold as the couple take new steps to re-build their marriage.
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie made the announcement last year that they planned to end their 12 year relationship. However the couple’s biographer, Ian Halperin, has revealed that the pair are undergoing “spiritual counselling” in an attempt to give their marriage a fresh start.
Speaking to the Mail on Sunday he said the couple, who have six children together, want to “consciously recouple”.
Ian added: “Brad took the first step forward, then they collapsed into each other’s arms. There were a lot of tears, nothing was left on the table.
“They had it out, right there. In that moment they decided to make a fresh start – it was a ‘come to Jesus meeting’ that marked the beginning of a new phase in their relationship.”
In recent months the A-listers have opened up about how difficult they are finding the break-up. Angelina revealed in an interview with the Sunday Telegraph that she doesn’t enjoy being single and that the emotional stress of the divorce has worsened her health problems.
She said: “I don’t enjoy being single. It’s not something I wanted. There’s nothing nice about it. It’s just hard.”
Brad also did an incredibly honest interview with GQ where he admitted that his behaviour ripped his family apart.
The divorce was reportedly triggered following an explosive argument between Brad and his 15-year-old son Maddox while on a flight from France to Los Angeles.
Ian explained that this incident infuriated Angelina. He said: “Angie was very, very angry about the incident on the private plane between Brad and Maddox, she threw everything she had at him.”
He continued: “It was toxic. I’ve spoken to many people around them, friends and family, and no one could see how they could possibly recover. But both of them realise they are happier together than apart. Once they cleared the air between them, things started to improve.”
