Is Angelina Jolie Dating Anyone?
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt used to be one of the world’s most famous couples. Both Jolie and Pitt were movie stars being they got together, so many fans enjoyed seeing them together with their large family.
However, it’s clear that these days Jolie and Pitt are no longer a couple. The pair separated in 2016, and fans have been dying to know who their next love interests might be.
Pitt has had his fair share of dating rumors, but Jolie’s love life has been fairly quiet. As such, a lot of people are curious to know if Jolie is dating again and, if so, who could she be seeing? Here’s what we know.
Angelina Jolie went through a tough custody battle with Brad Pitt
Jolie and Pitt got married in 2014 after being in a relationship together for many years. However, in 2016, it was reported that Jolie had filed for divorce. The couple cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason.
According to several sources, Pitt’s alcoholism was also negatively affecting their family life. Pitt admitted that he began drinking to cope with life as a celebrity, and many onlookers believe that his alcohol use might have been a factor in the divorce.
Some reports revealed that Pitt drank heavily on one of the family’s flight and subsequently got into a fight with their oldest son, Maddox. The fight got so violent that Jolie allegedly had the kids stay in a separate cabin until they landed.
In any case, much of the news surrounding the divorce centered on the custody battle, which affected Jolie and Pitt’s six biological and adopted children. In order to help his case, Pitt shared that he quit alcohol and drugs, and he even decided to get help for his drinking problems by attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings.
In 2018, it was alleged that Jolie and Pitt managed to reach a custody agreement. Both actors were also restored to single status by the court in 2019. The couple’s divorce is still ongoing as they have not reached an agreement on how to divide their assets.
Angelina Jolie reportedly does not want to get married again
Before Jolie began a relationship with Pitt, she had already been married twice before. She married Jonny Lee Miller in 1996 and Billy Bob Thornton in 2000.
Some sources close to the actress recently revealed that she never wanted to marry Pitt in the first place. Reportedly, Jolie felt that her relationship with Pitt was going well and did not want to change anything. However, she ultimately decided to wed Pitt since he really wanted to get married.
After their long and tiring divorce, insiders told Us Weekly that Jolie does not want to get married again and “felt that Brad pressured her” into marriage. She also shared that the recent divorce changed her, saying: “It was complicated, I didn’t recognize myself anymore, and I’d become, how do I say this, smaller, insignificant, even if I didn’t show it. I was profoundly, deeply sad, I was hurt.”
Angelina Jolie might be dating again
Just because marriage is off her mind now does not mean that she will never pursue romance again. This past year, sources had been saying that Jolie had no interest in dating for the time being and only wanted to focus on her children as well as her career.
However, things seem to have changed. An insider revealed that Jolie “has been on a few dates,” but nothing serious has happened yet. Yet, the source also clarified that dating is not Jolie’s main priority at the moment. Her life is still occupied with “the kids, her job, and cleaning up her messy divorce.”
