Single and ready to mingle! Angelina Jolie is leaving her relationship with Brad Pitt in the past. Since splitting from her former flame, the 44-year-old “has been on a few dates,” a source told Us Weekly, “but nothing serious” has come of them.
“She isn’t closed to the idea of meeting someone new, but it’s not her main priority,” the source added. “She’s all about focusing on the kids, her job and cleaning up her messy divorce.”
Brad, 55, and Angelina were together for nearly 12 years and married for two before going their separate ways in 2016. The two share six children together — Maddox, 18, Pax, 15, Zahara, 14, Shiloh, 13 and 11-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox. The former couple reached a custody agreement in November 2018, but have yet to finalize their divorce. Once their divorce is signed, sealed and delivered, “she’ll get back to the dating scene, without a doubt,” the source added.
Aside from dating, Angelina has some big plans for her family. The actress is hoping to relocate her brood to Africa, an insider told In Touch exclusively. “She doesn’t play by anyone’s rules, especially not Brad’s, and she wants her kids raised out of the country,” the source said. “Her plan is for the house there to be their new home base.”
Although Angelina would like the luxury of moving her family whenever she pleases, Brad is holding her back. “Right now, I’m having to base where their father chooses to live,” she told Harper’s BAZAAR in an interview on November 5. “I would love to live abroad and will do so as soon as my children are 18.”
Brad is definitely not pleased at the thought of his family living several continents away. He “is already feeling like he’s living a world apart from his children,” the insider added, as Angelina jet sets with her children to promote Maleficent: Mistress of Evil. “Brad misses his kids desperately, and it feels like Angie is just rubbing salt in his wounds.”
“He would never deny his children the luxury of wanting to live abroad,” the source continued, adding that the actor is “heartbroken” by the idea. With oceans separating the famous family, Brad fears the distance would hurt his already strained bond with his children. “This is just another way for Angelina to take control of the kids,” the insider shared, “But Brad will never give up on them.”
