In an exclusive cover story last September, In Touch revealed the details inside Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s $400 million divorce. Now almost exactly one year later, In Touch is exclusively reporting that Brad plans to take drastic measures to finally end the marriage.
Brad — who shares kids Maddox, 16, Pax, 13, Zahara, 12, Shiloh, 11, and 9-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne, with his ex, 42 — “is planning on asking his lawyer to speed up the divorce,” says an insider.
Brad, 53, will seek a bifurcation, a legal maneuver that, if granted by a judge, would make him and Angelina single before their custody and asset arrangements are officially settled. “Restoring his status to a single person isn’t about Brad going out on the town and dating, but about his beginning a new chapter.”
“There has been little progress in getting close to a settlement. Brad has had enough. He’s ready to officially take back control of his life,” the insider adds. “His life has been at a standstill while he’s spent a year appeasing Angelina. He wants to move on to the next phase of his life without having his hands tied by her — and he wants it soon.”
