Angelina Jolie is reportedly determined to win back estranged husband Brad Pitt, which is why their divorce has dragged out so long.

According to the Sun, Brad has turned down the idea of a romantic reconciliation, but still wants to stay on good terms for the sake of their six children.

A source told the Sun: "Angelina has made it clear to Brad that she wants to be back in a relationship with him. She would like them to be a family again and doesn't seem capable of moving on. That's why she is making it so difficult for Brad with every detail of their divorce.

"Brad has consistently kept his mouth shut because all he cares about is his kids. Angelina is making it horrendous for him and drawing out the process, but it's not going to make him consider going back.

"He just wants it all settled — in reality, this could have been over a year ago — but she won't let go."

The couple share biological children Shiloh, 12, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 10, plus Angelina's three adopted kids Maddox, 17, Pax, 15, and Zahara, 14.

They've had various public spats including alleged child abuse and arguments over child support payments but in recent months, both stars' legal teams have gone quiet as the family attempts to keep matters private.

Brad and Ange were last spotted together in February, where it was believed they were finalising their divorce settlement.
