Peoples Digest Online – BRAD Pitt and Angelina Jolie are ‘back together’ after intense spiritual counselling, it has been claimed.
The A-list couple shocked the world when they announced their split in September last year after 12 years together and two years of marriage. But in the midst of their divorce, the stars have reportedly come face to face for the first time and decided to give their relationship another go.
The couple’s biographer Ian Halperin told The Mail on Sunday of the meeting at a friend’s home in Hollywood: “Brad took the first step forward, then they collapsed into each other’s arms.
“There were a lot of tears, nothing was left on the table. They had it out, right there and then in this very modest house. “In that moment they decided to make a fresh start. It was a ‘come to Jesus meeting’ that marked the beginning of a new phase in their relationship.”
The biographer added Angelina and Brad were working to ‘consciously re-couple’ and decided to undergo intensive rehab and spiritual counselling sessions in a bid to get their relationship back on track.
The split came after a flight from France to Los Angeles last year, with Brad allegedly having a verbal fight with their eldest son Maddox, forcing them to land at a different airport.
While close friends felt the couple could never repair the damage from the fall out of that incident, time apart has reportedly helped put things in perspective for them.
Ian explained: “Angie was very, very angry about the incident on the private plane between Brad and Maddox, she threw everything she had at him
“It was toxic. I’ve spoken to many people around them, friends and family, and no one could see how they could possibly recover.
“But both of them realise they are happier together than apart. Once they cleared the air between them, things started to improve.”
Indeed, the biographer claims Brad and Angelina see themselves as the new Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor, who had a famously volatile relationship and married and divorced twice.
Ian explained: “Today, they are both feeling very positive. Angelina sees them as very much the new Burton and Taylor. “They can’t live together but they can’t live apart. She has worked hard on herself since the plane incident, and so has Brad. They are still in love with each other.”
However, the news doesn’t mean they are calling off their divorce, with the biographer insisting the couple think it will give them a fresh start, and reset things back to a time when they were happiest.
He said: “They both view divorce as not the worst thing that can happen.
She told the Telegraph newspaper: “I don’t enjoy being single. It’s not something I wanted.
“There’s nothing nice about it. It’s just hard.
“Sometimes maybe it appears I am pulling it all together, but really I am just trying to get through my days.
“Emotionally it’s been a very difficult year.”
