A friend close to the actor, 52, and actress, 40, says the Fight Club star plans to file the paperwork as soon as February, while he’s in LA filming and she’s in Cambodia directing First They Killed My Father.
According to the source, they will remain civil and do holidays and special occasions together for the sake of their six kids — Maddox, 14, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 9, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 7.
The friend says the divorce likely won’t come as a surprise to their kids, as the parents (who have been together for more than a decade) have long been living separate lives. But now, they’re ready to make it official.
“[Brad’s] ready to move on to the second phase of his life — and that no longer includes Angelina,” the source tells In Touch. “They’re done.”
