Family counsellor Jane Pitt – who is famously close to Brad’s ex-wife Jennifer Aniston – is keen for the couple to repair their five-year union for the sake of their six children.
A source told the Daily Mail website: “Brad is trying to cling on to the wreckage of the relationship as he is still very much in love with Angelina and believes they can make it work.
“Jane wants what is best for her son and grandchildren and Angie has agreed to meet her. She has stuck at her own marriage and worked with families for 30 years trying to keep them together.”
Jane believes her skills as a mediator will come in useful when speaking to Angelina, who she has become close to in recent months thanks to their joint work in setting up a cancer centre.
It was recently reported Brad and Angelina – who have three adopted children, Maddox, eight, Pax, six, and Zahara, five, as well as three biological kids, Shiloh, three, and 18-month-old twins Knox and Vivienne – were heading for a split after signing a legal document which equally split their $330 million fortune and custody of their kids.
However, sources close to the couple denied this and insisted “everything was fine” between them.
Friends also say the couple are planning to attend the Oscars together in March and have already started planning their outfits.
One pal said: “Angelina and Brad are still very much together. They’re even in the process of planning out their Oscar outfits. Brad wanted to make sure he didn’t clash with Angelina, who’s putting some serious thought into her choices. They are still a couple.”
Brad and Angelina – who has been married twice before – got together after meeting on the set of ‘Mr and Mrs Smith’ in 2004, while Brad was still married to Jennifer.
