Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie: We're United!!!

by at .

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are back together.

Sorry, wait. Hold up. Don't pop any champagne bottles just yet.

These two stars are most definitely NOT back together in any kind of romantic sense.

But reports have now confirmed that Pitt and Jolie are back to being on the same legal page when it comes to their divorce.

Specifically, when it comes to how little of their divorce and custody battle will be released to the public going forward.

Over the past few weeks, things has turned extremely ugly between the former spouses.

First, you had Brad Pitt entering a court document in which he accused Jolie of exploiting the couple's six children for personal gain or advantage.

Seeking to keep details of their back-and-forth custody arrangement(s) private, a lawyer for Pitt said Jolie had no problem disregarding the kids' privacy when it served her "benefit."

The legal paper added that Jolie "exposed the children by making public the names of their therapist and other mental health professionals."

Ouch.

Pretty damning, huh?

Several days later, Jolie fired back (also through her attorney) and said it makes perfect sense that Pitt would want to keep as much information away from the public as possible...

... because he's scared of the truth getting out!

In her own set of legal papers, Jolie wrote earlier this month that Pitt he only made the aforementioned accusations against her because he’s “terrified that the public will learn the truth."

Read the court filing:

"There is little doubt that [Brad] would prefer to keep the entire case private, particularly given the detailed investigations by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Dept. of Children and Family Services into allegation of abuse."

As you likely recall, Pitt was accused of assaulting his 15-year old son on board a private plane in mid-September.

Authorities looked into these charges and determined that there was not ample evidence to pursue a case.

So, yeah. Things have been a mess between Jolie and Pitt, despite neither saying a negative public word about the other since news of their divorce went viral on September 19.

Now, however, a joint statement, released through their reps, at least confirms that a deal has been struck that will, indeed, keep details of their ongoing custody battle private.

"The parties and their counsel have signed agreements to preserve the privacy rights of their children and family by keeping all court documents confidential and engaging a private judge to make any necessary legal decisions and to facilitate the expeditious resolution of any remaining issues," this statement reads.

"The parents are committed to act as a united front to effectuate recovery and reunification."

A united front to effectuate recovery and reunification.

Not exactly the most romantic language or description, is it?

On Sunday night, meanwhile, Pitt made a surprise appearance at the Golden Globe Awards.

And those in attendance made it pretty clear on which side they fall in the Battle of Brangelina. Just listen to the applause Pitt received at the ceremony:

Pitt and Jolie have been embroiled in an increasingly bitter divorce battle and fight over custody of their six children :

Maddox, 15, Pax, 13, Zahara, 12, Shiloh, 10, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 8.

The kids are living with Jolie, and have seen Pitt only for a few supervised visits since the split.

One of those visits took place around Christmas and allegedly led to a Jolie breakdown of epic proportions.

The actress is seeking sole physical custody of all six kids, while the actor is seeking joint custody.

And we're still seeking an answer to how we ended up here. Say it ain't so, Brangelina!

Our seven-year-old was searching the word 'weapons' on Google the other day and ended up on some white-supremacist site. I'm sure now we're on all kinds of watch lists.
