With this week’s news that Chris Pratt and Anna Faris are divorcing, many fans of celebrity couples were quick to declare love dead.
But now, it may be time to cast off your mourning attire and start believing again, as arguably the most famous couple on the planet is rumored to be giving their relationship a second chance.
Yes, sources tell Us Weekly that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have called off their divorce and are considering an attempt at saving their marriage.
“The divorce is off,” says the source.
“They haven’t done anything to move it forward in several months and no one thinks they are ever going to.”
Many have expressed shock at the news, as Pitt and Jolie’s split back in September of 2016 was anything but amicable.
The couple parted ways following a confrontation between Pitt and son Maddox aboard a private jet.
Insiders say Jolie was so appalled by her husband’s behavior that she left him the next day without hesitation.
Nearly a year later, however, Jolie is reportedly considering giving Pitt a second chance for one simple reason:
“She’s still so in love with him,” says the source.
Of course, Jolie’s primary concern remains her six children, but she’s reportedly been won over by Pitt’s efforts to better himself for the sake of his kids.
In a candid interview published in GQ back in May, Pitt revealed that he’s now sober after decades of heavy drinking and recreational drug use.
He also revealed that he had spent a good deal of time evaluating his parenting skills and had found himself lacking.
“I grew up with a father-knows-best/war mentality — the father is all-powerful, superstrong — instead of really knowing the man and his own self-doubt and struggles,” Pitt told the mag.
“And it’s hit me smack in the face with our divorce: I gotta be more. I gotta be more for them. I have to show them. And I haven’t been great at it.”
Insiders say Pitt and Jolie are far from fully reconciled, but both are reportedly optimistic about their future together.
“Everyone thinks they are going to get back together,” says the source.
“It wouldn’t be surprising if they announced that they’re calling it off and trying to work things out.”
It would certainly be welcome news to fans weary of seemingly constant celebrity breakups.
