Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie 'may be one step closer to finalizing divorce' after stars submit financial disclosures... seven years after their split

          Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie submitted their financial documents in what appears to be one step closer to finalizing their divorce that has been ongoing for almost eight years.Brad, 60, and Angelina, 48, reportedly disclosed their finances to the other party, according to TMZ, which signals the end of a divorce settlement.The former power couple have been battling it out since Angelina first filed for divorce in September has reached out to Brad and Angelina's representatives for comment. The movie stars, who met in 2004 while filming Mr. And Mrs. Smith, share six children together: sons Maddox, 22, Pax, 20, and Knox, 15, and daughters Zahara, 19, Shiloh, 17, and Vivienne, 15. Jolie adopted Maddox in 2002, then Zahara in 2005, a year after she'd met Pitt while the pair filmed Mr and Mrs Smith. He was married to Jennifer Aniston at the time.They then adopted Pax together in 2007, and had biological kids Shiloh, Knox and Vivienne afterwards. Pitt adopted all of the kids before they got married in 2014.They married in August 2014 after 10 years together but Angelina filed for divorce in September 2016. At the time, Angelina chose to file 'for the health of the family,' according to the Associated Press, and asked for physical custody of the children.Jolie filed for sole custody after filing for divorce following an incident on the couple's private plane during which she said he allegedly became violent and abusive, which he has vehemently denied and was cleared of.By the end of September 2016, she was granted the full physical custody according to a judge, with Brad having visitation rights.Two months later, Brad filed his response, requesting joint and physical custody of the children.By December 2016, Brad filed - but was later denied - a request to seal the custody related documents.In January 2017, they released a joint statement revealing that they signed an agreement to keep their court documents confidential.The judge ordered Angelina to help repair Brad's relationship with their children and he was given more time with them.However, in August 2018, Angelina accused Brad of not paying any 'meaningful child support, with Brad's lawyers filing a response one day later, claiming he's paid her $9 million since their split.A judge granted them both legal single status on April 12, 2019, while the couple continued to finalize their divorce.
Brad was granted joint custody by private Judge John Ouderkirk in May 2021 but Angelina challenged it.
         A California appeals court disqualified the judge in July 2021, agreeing with Jolie in that the judge, Judge John Ouderkirk, did not sufficiently disclose business relationships with Pitt's attorneys. Lawyers for the star filed a petition for review with the California Supreme Court after the disqualification of Judge John Ouderkirk effectively voided the joint custody ruling, according to People.In Pitt's petition, lawyers claim that elimination of Ouderkirk 'effectively upended the constitutionally authorized temporary judging system in California' and subsequently 'throws open the door to disqualification challenges at any point during a case, even if the party raising the motion has long been on notice about the alleged grounds for disqualification.' In addition, lawyers for the actor allege that Jolie was 'made aware of Judge Ouderkirk's significant professional history with Pitt's counsel from the very start,' yet did not seek disqualification until years later.The joint custody ruling was then vacated after his removal. In February 2022, Brad sued Angelina for selling their Chateau Miraval Winery, their French winery and the place they tied the knot. They had 50/50 ownership, and Angelina sold her portion to Russian oligarch Yuri Shefler. The holding company in control of her Miraval share is called Nouvel.He requested the sale to be voided and sought monetary damages and legal fees however the sale went through on October 5, 2021.In June 2023, Brad filed an amended complaint regarding her sale of her share of the winery. His lawsuit for the sale of her portion of the winery is still ongoing. Brad is currently romantically involved with Ines de Ramon, the ex-wife of actor Paul Wesley.
