“Jennifer is furious over the whole mess because she can see that Ange is dragging her feet on the divorce just to sabotage her relationship with Brad,” says the source.
“She knows that Brad is moving heaven and earth to get Angelina to finalise the divorce, but she just won’t budge –it’s infuriating. And for Jennifer, it’s just Ange ruining her relationship with Brad all over again.”
Earlier this month it was reported that, frustrated at the length of time their divorce is taking to finalise, Brad ordered Angelina to sign the papers after stalling.
In April courts issued the pair with a bifurcated judgement, which means they are legally single, however their lawyers are still working out details of the final settlement. At the time it was reported that Judge John Ouderkirk had extended the court case until December 31, for the couple formerly known as 'Brangelina'.
It’s not the first time Angelina’s been accused of dragging her feet since she filed for divorce in September 2016 after Brad was involved in an alleged physical altercation with eldest son Maddox on a private plane. This led to child services investigating, although the case was later dropped.
Last year she was warned by a judge to let Brad have more time with their younger five kids or risk losing custody of them. She was urged to let Brad form a “healthy and strong relationship” with the children, and not intercept telephone calls or messages between them. A strict timeline of visits was established.
This year, however, the couple seemed to be on more amicable terms with reports they had set up a co-parenting schedule for the northern summer holidays and while Angelina is filming her latest project in New Mexico.Us Weekly magazine reported last week that Brad now sees Maddox, 17, Pax, 15, Zahara, 14, Shiloh, 13, and 10-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne “several times” a week.
