Brad Pitt And Angelina Jolie’s Careers Take Center Stage After Divorce And Adoption Reports

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie appear to be moving on from the endless rumors regarding their marriage and the plans to expand their family. The latest reports claim Brad and Angelina are now focusing on their careers instead.

Earlier this year, the famous couple was targeted by rumors claiming they were on the verge of a split before suddenly the reports flipped and began to speak of Pitt and Jolie’s alleged plans to adopt their seventh child. Now, however, their motivation seems to be for their careers.

As Angelina Jolie faces false reports regarding her teaching career at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., which People Magazine corrected, Brad Pitt is busy promoting his new film, Allied. On August 8, the International Business Times shared a report by Us Weekly, in which the magazine claimed Jolie would be participating in a guest teaching spot at the university.

Angelina Jolie will “share her knowledge in lectures, workshops and research focused on women, peace and security,” the magazine’s source alleged.

While Angelina Jolie isn’t planning on working at Georgetown University, she is currently quite busy with her acting career. As the International Business Times revealed, Jolie is currently in the midst of several projects, including Maleficent 2 and First They Killed My Father: A Daughter of Cambodia Remembers for Netflix.

At the same time, Brad Pitt is working with his co-stars, including Lizzy Caplan and Marion Cotillard, as they prepare for the premiere of their World War II drama. As fans of the 52-year-old actor may recall, Brad Pitt was linked to both Caplan and Cotillard during production on the movie, which took place in London earlier this year.

“[Marion] must feel like a breath of fresh air to him,” an insider told OK! Magazine earlier this year, via Hollywood Life, explaining that Angelina Jolie had been struggling with health problems and had allegedly engaged in several affairs.

“It’s sad because they do still really care about each other,” the source continued. “But it’s looking like the only way out of the jealousy and misery is a divorce.”

Following news of their potential divorce, sources claimed Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie had mended their marriage and were planning to adopt a seventh child from South Africa, Burundi or Ethiopia.

“Brad and Angie believe that adopting an older child will make people aware of orphans who are often overlooked,” a friend of the couple explained to In Touch Weekly last month. “According to Angie, everybody seems to want to adopt babies when there are so many other wonderful, worthy and deserving older children out there.”

“They feel that by adopting a child who is 10 or older, he or she will mix in better with their rambunctious kids, who are getting bigger by the day,” the friend added of Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 8.

In the last several weeks, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have been spending time with their kids. After they had shopped for groceries and party supplies in Los Angeles in early July, the couple treated their youngest children, twins Knox and Vivienne, to a pancake breakfast at West Hollywood’s The Griddle Cafe.

Throughout the months of divorce rumors, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie remained silent and continued to step out separately in the United States and overseas. However, in recent weeks, the superstar couple has been seen together a few times with their family in Los Angeles.
