LONDON: Angelina Jolie reportedly won’t start dating again for ”a very long time”.
The 42-year-old actress has been single since splitting from her estranged husband Brad Pitt – with whom she has children Maddox, 16, Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 11, and nine-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox – over a year ago in September 2016, and sources have now claimed the star isn’t on the lookout for a new man.
An insider said: ”Angelina isn’t dating anyone and won’t be for a very long time. She is focused on her children and their needs.”
However, the sources also insist that Brad, 54, has been on a number of dates in the months since his split from the ‘Maleficent’ actress, but they claim none of them have been serious, as his children are more important than his love life.
The insider added to ‘Entertainment Tonight’: ”He’s been on casual dates but none of them have evolved into anything serious. His dating life is certainly not his top priority. The kids are.
”It’s a really important time for him. The kids are his life. They mean everything to him.”
It comes after Angelina previously claimed that she believed working with her former husband on 2015 movie ‘By The Sea’ – which she directed and the pair starred in – would help save their marriage.
She said: ”We had met working together and we worked together well … I wanted us to do some serious work together … I thought it would be a good way for us to communicate.
”In some ways it was, and in some ways we learned some things. But there was a heaviness probably during that situation that carried on and it wasn’t because of the film.
”It was something that we were dealing … things happen for different reasons, and things … why did I write that exact piece? Why did we feel that way when we made it? I’m not sure.”
