The superstar couple announced they were separating back in 2016, and officially became single again in April, after obtaining a bifurcated judgment, which ended their marriage but gave them time to tie up loose ends on a financial settlement.
According to legal documents obtained by The Blast, Brad and Angelina are still wrangling over how to split their fortune, and have asked for a Los Angeles County Courts to allow them to continue with discussions using a private judge.
Their request has reportedly been granted, as long as they pay for the private judge's time overseeing the case themselves.
The divorce proceedings initially involved a tense custody battle over their six kids - 18-year-old Maddox Jolie-Pitt, 15-year-old Pax, 14-year-old Zahara, 13-year-old Shiloh Jolie-Pitt and 11-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne, during which the "Ocean's Eleven" star was investigated and cleared of child abuse.
However, the pair had worked out a temporary custody agreement last November (18), and disputes between the former couple over the care of the children were resolved.
The "Mr and Mrs Smith" co-stars began dating in 2005, and wed in 2014, but unexpectedly split in 2016 as the Maleficent star filed for divorce citing irreconcilable differences.
