The former couple’s children were also mentioned in the documents, but their names will continue to be hyphenated as Jolie-Pitt.

The news comes just a week after it was revealed that Angelina and Brad are officially single.

While the duo are no longer married, their divorce is still ongoing while they work out a permanent custody order and divides up millions of dollars in assets.

    Hi GC!

    Truthfully I was not far off from JP love (hi JP love). I was just telling my husband a couple of weeks ago that it ain’t over till it’s over (he was teasing me).

    Is time the BS like “she wants him back , desperately”, will come to an end.Even though was clear from the start that Angie wanted him out her life,till yesterday we had to deal with their sick tales

    Seems like she is clearly over it. Somebody help me out. If their Marriage is legally over, Why are they still sorting out finances if there was an ironclad prenup as some of his fans proposed? That would be a cut and dry judgement! The custody I understand to be prolonged being the circumstances and situations. But money no! I get the feeling a good portion is about money also. The battle, the attacks, the hold out of final documents! Wow

    Brad’s team is out working full force to make the untrue case that Angie had changed her mind about the divorce. WRONG!!!! Angie has so much going on in her life right now why does she want to have to deal with this narcissistic man. Plus aren’t all the tabs saying he has been dating? So let her go people. Angie has moved on, so should you.

    There was no pre nup,that was TMZ’s erroneous reporting.
    Even the child support was an informal arrangement.
    I think every couple of years they sat down and worked out their finances,but I don’t believe anything was set down legally.

    the scale of events is somehow interesting :

    The idea she is again invested in her acting career – The Marvel news gives us a notion that she really wants financial stability.

    She went to Chicago where she stayed 3 days with Mad which probably means he will do college there.

    it seems she wanted to clean the house before moving to her acting projects.

    It seems TWWMD is slowly moving. They added a stunt coordinator who worked with her in Salt, Mr and Mrs Smith and the Lara Croft movie and with Sheridan. The Eternals filming in the fall with Mad in college.

    She is going back to being herself,she agreed to the marriage,took his name,so all the family would be the same.
    But he, the husband then checked out on the family,broke agreements they had and failed to take responsibility for his actions after everything went down.

    I guess when you’re an entertainer getting a divorce, wanting your mostly known last name back is important. I did not request my maiden name back because I wanted my kids and my last name to be the same. That way they never had to explain anything to other kids and most were not aware there was a divorce in the family.

  • lyric

    The very same to you Baruch. 🤗

  • LetMeTranslate

    I have always known her as Angelina Jolie and Angelina Jolie only! Now and always!

  • lyric

    I’m sure that’s how it will be from now on.

  • LetMeTranslate

    Classic narcissist, always trying to provoke his victim to get a reaction. That’s his oxygen. But Angie’s stonewalling him and moving on.

  • toastie postie

    Wishing the best for Angie.

    Angelina’s supporters are literally the purest fandom… Y’all are so sweet in these comments! Thank you for brightening my Monday.

    Welcome Sansa

    She’s tired of how friggin annoying he is

    This is the barn door is closed, announcement, right? She dropped Pitt from her name over 2 1/2 years ago. If people are just now noticing then they’ve been living under a rock.

    And really, this is no different than when Brad and Ticky divorced. Their single status was returned on Aug 19 and it then took another 6 weeks for the paperwork to go through the court system. So, yippee, we get to have this discussion again in 6 weeks when the divorce is final!

  • lurker

    Waving to all Angie fans.Thankfully this chapter of her life is closing.I wish her nothing but the best.I am happy she is loving the big screen once again
    P.S hopefully we can have separation of threads now…………….

    Nothing new here, this is just The Blast wanting to extend the subject for another week, it’s not like we did not know it would happen.

  • toastie postie

    Hi, Lurker! Exactly, wishing the best for Angie and the kids. As for the separate threads, I doubt it.

  • toastie postie

    For sure.

    My aunt also chose to keep her ex-husband’s last name, she made that choice, because marriage was part of her life story, I always found it very cool, even that her husband having betrayed her and then divorced, to marry with the mistress.

  • Lady Valeria Doria(n) Grey

    Hate to do all that paperwork yeesh. Two of my aunts said it was a booger to change their names back.

    That’s 113+ million in US dollars

    Bless your aunt. I’m not sure I could have retained my ex’s last name under those circumstances, even with children.

    I’m sure there will be others donating. They had trouble raising money for this last renovation. Ironic if renovation caused the fire.

  • Malf

    Such a non-story. Just paperwork.

  • gennline

    It probably did.

    What do you mean it’s a non-story, non-starter, Malf! The Blast would never do that! LOL
