Brad Pitt spotted at Angelina Jolie's home first time since split, zooms out on bike after spending two hours
Although Pitt and Jolie live less than ten minutes apart in Los Angeles, the couple is almost never seen together sans lawyers
Days after Angelina Jolie said in an interview that her decision to split from her former husband Brad Pitt back in 2016 was the right decision as she did it for her kids' wellbeing, the 'Once Upon A Time In Hollywood' actor was seen pulling out of the actress' Los Angeles Home on his motorcycle. This was the first time Pitt was seen at his ex-wife's residence since their split.
While Pitt and Jolie live less than ten minutes apart in Los Angeles, the couple is almost never seen together sans lawyers, post their very public divorce. However, on June 23, the actor dropped by his 'Mr. and Mrs. Smith' costar's home for a two-hour long visit. On the occasion, Pitt wore a shiny silver helmet with a clear front face shield. With it, he donned a long-sleeved light green shirt, jeans with a rolled-up ankle cuff, white sneakers, and white gloves for handling his motorcycle. He finished off his look with a pair of aviator shades. While it is not known what was discussed in the meeting, there surely seemed to be a thaw in their relationship. It could be that the former spouses got together to discuss the birthday celebrations of their twins Knox and Vivienne, who turn 12 on July 12, but that seems unlikely as any arrangements for a party could have been hashed out over the phone or e-mail.
Besides, the couple had separate birthday celebrations for daughter Shiloh when she turned 14 on May 27. Given Los Angeles' “Safer at Home” order, Shiloh had an online zoom party with her friends. Pitt and Jolie each held small parties for her at their respective homes.
Pitt being photographed leaving Jolie's house was the closest the two have been seen near each other’s residences since their split. It was highly unlikely he was dropping off any of their kids following a visit at his place since he was on his bike. Following the coronavirus quarantine that began in March, both Pitt and Jolie remained at their homes and hence, the children have been splitting their time between their parents' respective estates. Since the former couple stay quite near to each other, the back and forth trips are short ones.
Ahead of World Refugee Day on June 20, Jolie was asked during an interview with Vogue how she continued to have a healthy environment for her kids after separating from their father. She said: “I separated for the wellbeing of my family. It was the right decision. I continue to focus on their healing. Some have taken advantage of my silence, and the children see lies about themselves in the media, but I remind them that they know their own truth and their own minds. In fact, they are six very brave, very strong young people.”
Jolie adopted Maddox (18), Zahara (15), and Pax (16) in 2002, 2005, and 2007, respectively. While the eldest Maddox is reportedly from Cambodia, Zahara and Pax are from Ethiopia and Vietnam respectively. She gave birth to her three biological children — Shiloh, 13, Knox, 11, and Vivienne, 11 — later. The ‘Maleficent’ star called both methods “a beautiful way of becoming a family,” as she continued: “What is important is to speak with openness about all of it and to share. ‘Adoption’ and ‘orphanage’ are positive words in our home. With my adopted children, I can’t speak of pregnancy, but I speak with much detail and love about the journey to find them and what it was like to look in their eyes for the first time.”
