The Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt divorce saga is set to take a break. Henceforth, the divorce settlement will take place behind closed doors.
After an acrimonious split, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt went all guns blazing on each other. From throwing shade to domestic violence allegations to what’s not. Not only did they both lock horns, but also brought unlikely persons into the equation. Marion Cotillard, for instance, was dragged into their mess for no reason whatsoever. Jennifer Aniston had her fair share of unwanted attention too.

In a joint statement issued by both the parties on Monday, the divorce settlement will go furtive from now on. The celebs are seemingly weary of the developments so far and hence want a compromise. Angelina stuck to her guns initially seeking the sole custody of the six children.
Under the circumstances, it’s safe to hope that the actors will resort to sensible arrangement. Furthermore, a private judge will see through the proceedings henceforth. Not only does this avoid some ugly revelations, but also create a room for reconciliation. Although the reunion is a tad unlikely, one cannot simply strike it off.
The utmost priority to Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt is their children’s welfare, asserts The Guardian. In order to achieve it, they are burying the hatchet and arriving on a common ground. The decision to end the marriage stands, of course. Just that, it won’t get any nastier. Even if it does, public won’t have a clue!

The crux in the divorce settlement is perhaps the custody of the kids. Angelina went berating Brad in the aftermath of their separation, accusing him of domestic abuse. FBI and the Children and Women Welfare organization couldn’t find anything substantial against Brad to support Jolie’s claims.
There is a huge sum of money involved here too. Once the custody dispute gets resolved, money will come into the picture. Brad, on the other hand, is making sporadic appearances here and there. Jolie keeps a low profile. The saga goes on.
