This Friday, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt became legally single, according to court documents, nearly three years after Jolie first filed for divorce. Entertainment Tonight now has details from a source about how that move forward is just the latest testament to how much better things are between the two now.
Their relationship is “the best it’s been since their split,” the source said. “Brad and Angelina have come a long way.” Initially, moving forward “took time because there were a lot of very hard feelings,” the source explained.
But things are really good now, especially when it comes to co-parenting their children, Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Knox, and Vivienne. “While they don’t agree about everything, they rarely argue now,” the source said. “Brad and Angelina are now at a point where they can discuss their children’s plans calmly.”
Their friends weren’t expecting this to happen, the source added: “To the surprise of many of their closest friends, their communication has improved tremendously and they’re both dedicated to co-parenting. Their kids have a custody schedule and that’s made a huge difference for the whole family. The schedule has alleviated any of the planning pressures Brad and Angelina have faced in the past. Now the kids spend time with both their parents and are happy and thriving.”
Jolie is focused on her kids and work, according to ET’s source. Pitt, meanwhile, is dating…but on his own terms. “He’s a free spirit when it comes to dating,” the source said. “He is enjoying himself, nothing serious.”
