Amidst the ongoing fierce divorce battle with his estranged wife Angelina Jolie, looks like Brad Pitt has found solace in ex-wife Jennifer Aniston. According to a report, they recently reconnected again as Brad texted Jennifer Aniston, who is now married to Justin Theroux, wishing her Happy Birthday as she turned 48 on February 11. A source close to Brad told the New York Post, “They have been texting and have been in touch. There has just been some friendly back and forth, nothing more than that.”
Us Weekly reported that Brad Pitt has been confiding in his ex-wife Aniston as they reminisced about their past. The magazine said, “Brad told her he’s having a hard time with his split and they exchanged a few texts reminiscing about the past.”
But another Hollywood source said of Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston’s renewed connection, “It isn’t romantic at all, they are friends again. They made it seem like Brad was running after Jen, and that isn’t true. It is nothing more than they are back in touch with each other.”
On his ongoing divorce battle with Angelina Jolie, it was reported that he refused to pay her $100,000 in child support. According to a source, Pitt “has no issue taking care of” their six children — Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, and twins Vivienne and Knox, but he will not pay her money to take care of their children, reports aceshowbiz.com.
The source said $250,000 will be put in each child’s trust fund every year, which will be capped off at $5 million. “This will pay for all of the kids’ expenses as well as set up a trust fund for each child,” the source told InTouch magazine. Jolie is said to be hoping to get the divorce finalised in the next 90 days. “Angie wants the divorce finalised within the next 90 days, including custody and property settlements. But with everything she’s asking for, it’s unlikely that will happen. She’s making ridiculous financial demands,” the source added.
