Angelina Jolie allows Brad Pitt to spend summer with their kids in divorce breakthrough as she heads to film new movie

In what could be described as good news for actor Brad Pitt, his former wife Angelina Jolie has reportedly offered him to have their kids over the summer while she works on a film. The development is seen as a massive breakthrough for Pitt in his messy divorce with Jolie. The ex-couple split in September 2016 and share six children together, including 17-year-old Maddox, 15-year-old Pax, 14-year-old Zahara, 13-year-old Shiloh, and 10-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox.


This comes as a positive sign as a majority of the former pair's bitter arguments revolved around who would get custody of their children.

According to The Sun, Angelina had agreed to give Brad a long amount of time with the children, making it the longest time that he has with them since the breakup. A source shared, "Angelina is going to be spending a lot of the summer filming 'Those Who Wish Me Dead'," and had decided to give Brad a chance to take care of the children.

"It feels like a really positive move all round and Brad is over the moon," the source was quoted as saying. "He’s invited his parents, Jane and William, to stay with them at his mansion in LA so they can have some proper family time together."

Jolie's offer comes just weeks after Pitt had revealed that he had given her an ultimatum over their divorce. She had been accused of stalling the divorce as an attempt to win Brad back. However, he had made it clear to her that he wanted to move forward and had told his lawyers to ask a judge to finalize a deadline for Angelina to sign the papers.

The olive branch extended by Angelina shows that she is probably ready to put the past behind and move on for the sake of her children.

The former couple had met while they were filming 'Mr. and Mrs. Smith' and had gotten married in August 2014. They split in 2016 but it took a few years before their divorce to get finalized. The 44-year-old Angelina and 55-year-old Brad made their divorce official in April this year.
