Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt Split: Couple Living Apart For Over A Year, ‘Negotiating Terms Of Divorce’ [Rumor]

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have been at the center of divorce rumors for quite some time and now it looks speculation is being raised yet again. According to Hollywood Life, Angelina and Brad have been living separate lives for more than a year and now they’re reportedly negotiating the terms of their divorce.

An insider actually claims Brad Pitt is ready to “call it quits” with Angelina Jolie after nearly 12 years together. During a recent interview with In TouchWeekly, an insider reportedly explained how the couple has been living apart and co-parenting for the sake of their children. The holiday season was reportedly a time of opposition for Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt.

The insider revealed they “had a series of relationship-ending fights” over the Christmas holiday. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are said to have an ongoing communication problem and he has “given up” because he “feels like she doesn’t listen,” according to the insider. The arguments have reportedly led to his decision to throw in the towel. Now, the biggest challenge will be keeping their family together since they would be co-parenting six children.

“Their alone time [has] dissolved into a tense negotiation over how they’ll keep the family going after the divorce,” the In Touch Weekly source said, adding that now Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt “will each spend time with their kids, individually and collectively, just like they’ve done in the past.”

The latest allegations about Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s possible divorce follow a string of reports about their rumored split. In fact, Angelina has even spoken out about their marriage and the opposition they face. During an interview with the Telegraph, Angelina Jolie revealed her marriage to Brad Pitt is like any other.

“We have fights and problems like any other couple,” Angelina said during her interview with the Telegraph. “We have days when we drive each other absolutely mad and want space.”

Despite the damage control they’ve done for several months, the insider claims the end is near and the “day of reckoning” for Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt could be much sooner than fans think. Hollywood Life reports that the divorce announcement could come as early as Valentine’s Day.

However, no one really knows if there is any truth to the latest rumor about Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt since this isn’t the first time divorce rumors have circulated. Back in July, In Touch Weekly published a report about the rumored breakup. According to Parent Herald, an insider claimed that the two were at odds because of Brad’s “controlling” ways. “He says she’s controlled him from day one of their relationship. Although he liked her taking charge, at first, he’s come to resent the power he’s allowed her to have over him.”

Star Pulse also reported that Angelina Jolie’s noticeable weight loss was attributed to the problems in her marriage to Brad Pitt. “She’s always been thin, but it’s never been this bad before. She’s at an all-time low. He’s tried for months to help her, and Brad is at the end of his rope. He told her if she doesn’t check into rehab for her eating disorder, he’s leaving and taking the kids with him.”

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt announced their engagement in April of 2012 and tied the knot two years later on August 23, 2014, after dating nine years. They have six children together. Angelina and Brad’s divorce rumors have yet to be confirmed or denied. Only time will tell if they’re really headed for divorce.
