"The terms of the divorce are now agreed," a source close to Angelina revealed. "They are being finalized by both legal teams, but will be filed within weeks." The couple, who share six kids together, had a messy breakup as Angelina had previously accused Brad of child abuse. But it looks like the couple has worked things out between them and are ready to put their past differences behind. 

"It’s a huge turnaround from where the marriage ended, especially given the claims Angelina made against Brad, but they are now on pretty good terms," the source continued. "Both decided it was crucial for the children that they had a respectful relationship."

One of the main concerns about the divorce was their kids, Maddox, 16, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 11, and nine-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne. The pair has been granted shared custody of their kids with Brad having access and working with Angelina on logistic issues about work and travel.

 

In the past, there had been rumors that the pair might be working things out between them and getting back together, but the source made it clear that there is no looking back for the couple. "There were rumors the divorce was being called off, but that’s not the case," the source said. Earlier this month there was news that Brad has been working hard to make things right and at the same time ensure that he is a better father to his kids. 

A source told People, "Brad seems to be in a better place. The separation was very dark for him, but lately, he looks healthier and happier. He seems excited about life." The pair had been together for 11 years before they decided to end their relationship.
