The way they were: During her four year break from acting, Angelina split from Brad following a 12-year relationship and six children

The movie stars, who met in 2004 while filming Mr. And Mrs. Smith, share six children together: sons Maddox, 18, Pax, 15, and Knox, 11, and daughters Zahara, 14, Shiloh, 13, and Vivienne, 11.

They married in August 2014 after 10 years together but Angelina filed for divorce in September 2016.

A judge granted them both legal single status while finalizing their divorce.

The former lovebirds have agreed on a custody agreement for their kids and are currently sorting out property and finances, specifically who gets Miraval, their French winery and the place they tied the knot.

According to The Blast, Brad filed documents to the court asking to appoint a private judge to enable their discussions to continue, a request the star agreed with.

The LA County Court agreed, as long as the pair paid for the judge's time themselves, and a stipulation order was put in place to 'Extend Appointment of Privately Compensated Temporary Judge.'

She told Madame Figaro magazine her split from Brad was 'a complicated moment' and that she 'didn't recognize herself anymore.' 

Angelina said the moment when her 'relationship was coming to an end' was when she 'had lost' herself a bit.

On the separation: 'I felt a deep and genuine sadness, I was hurt,' and that she felt 'smaller, almost insignificant, even if it wasn't necessarily obvious.'

Strength: The 44-year-old movie star said of her returning to Maleficent: 'It was a tough time. I'd been coming off a few years of difficulty, and I was not feeling very strong.

In 2016, Brad and Maddox allegedly got into an argument on a private jet while on the way to Los Angeles, which led to Angelina filing for divorce that year. Brad was later cleared of any wrongdoing, reports the magazine.

Maddox has chosen not to have a relationship with Brad even though Angelina has tried to mend fences, according to Us Weekly.

'Maddox hasn't been receptive, And for Brad, it's a tremendous loss.'

Maddox, who is at college in South Korea, was adopted by Angelina in March 2002 in Cambodia; Brad later adopted him when the actors began their relationship.

Brad was noticeably absent when Angelina took Maddox to drop him off at the Yonsei University in Seoul where he is studying biochemistry. 

Us Weekly also claimed that Brad is estranged from Pax, 15. And a source noted that with Maddox overseas, Brad feels he can work on his relationship with Pax.
