Actor Brad Pitt is reportedly in a much better place after his divorce proceedings were sealed earlier this month.
A source close to Pitt told People magazine, "He seems to have a more positive outlook. Things seem much better now.”
After their ugly custody battle made headlines for months, Pitt and Angelina Jolie agreed to hash out their divorce settlement in private. Pitt has also been able to "spend more time with [their kids].”
The insider explained, “He seems much happier. He has missed his kids terribly. The kids are his whole world. It’s all he cares about.”
Us Weekly reports that Brad recently held a private party at Hotel Casa Del Mar in Santa Monica and left with some goodies for his children. Another source said, “Brad had an intimate party in one of the rooms. He spent the night at the hotel and left in the morning with a big gold-and-white balloon arrangement that he wanted to take home for his kids.”
Earlier this month, Pitt and Jolie released their first joint statement since their split become public last year. They said, "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. The parents are committed to act as a united front to effectuate recovery and reunification.”
Jolie is also focusing on the kids and work, landing a new fragrance campaign for French beauty brand Guerlain. Though she is being paid to be the face of the new Guerlain fragrance, she will be donating the money to charity. The perfume debuts in March.
