But before we get ahead of ourselves - reports say that they're just friends - it’s probably best to take a look back — it is a story that spans more than two decade after all.

But Angelina Jolie is now hitting back via her own legal representative, who says her client just wants a 'fair trial' with 'no special favors' for either herself or Pitt, 45, according to a new report.
'All my client is asking for is a fair trial based on facts, with no special favors extended to either side,' Jolie's lawyer, Samantha Bley DeJean, tells UsWeekly in a statement.
The statement adds: 'The only way litigants can trust the process is for everyone involved to ensure that there’s transparency and impartiality.'
Angelina Jolie requests the withdrawal of the judge in charge of her divorce with Brad Pitt
© Backgrid UK / Bestimage New twist between Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt . Four years after the news of their divorce, when their relationship seemed to be looking good for several months, the 45-year-old actress makes an unexpected request.
The report also adds a comment from Neama Rahmani, president of West Coast Trial Lawyers, who believes that Judge Ouderkirk is 'biased in Brad's favor' due to the personal connections they have.
An insider recently told UsWeekly of the divorce battle: 'They're at a total impasse. And there's no end in sight.'
As previously reported in court documents, Jolie claimed that Ouderkik - who married the couple at their lavish French wedding in 2014 - failed to disclose 'ongoing business and professional relationships' that he had with Pitt's legal team.
However, Pitt responded in papers filed on August 13, calling Jolie's filing a 'Hail Mary' - an American Football reference to deliberately delay a game.

In them, Pitt's legal team accuses the actress of making a 'transparently tactical gambit' to delay matters, adding that it will be their own children who are 'hurt most' by the hold up.
The papers describe Jolie's request as 'a thinly-veiled attempt by Jolie to delay the adjudication of long-pending custody issues in this case.'
The former power couple - who first split in 2016, effectively ending a 12-year relationship and two years of marriage - share six children, Maddox, 19, Pax, 16, Zahara, 15, Shiloh, 14, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 12.
Jolie alleged in her filing that Ouderkirk 'failed to make timely mandatory disclosures of ongoing business and professional relationships between himself' and Pitt's legal team.
She added in her request that she was 'never afforded the opportunity to even raise a concern or to object to the ever-increasing business relationships between Judge Ouderkirk and [Pitt's] counsel — relationships that were providing a steady stream of income to Judge Ouderkirk and the potential for future work.'
Angelina Jolie describes life in quarantine with her six kids
For Angelina Jolie, life in quarantine has been a chance to take a break from rushing around film sets and press junkets and relax with her big brood. “Well, we’re all there,” the actress told E!’s Daily Pop. “So, all six kids, my oldest son’s home from Korea. Lots of popcorn and just like really every family, we’re just pyjamas, robes, snacks.” Jolie and her estranged husband, Brad Pitt, are parents to Maddox, 19; Pax, 16; Zahara, 15; Shiloh, 14; and 12-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox. It’s eventful, to say the least, which is exactly how Jolie prefers it.
Adding: 'These are precisely the type of repeat customer circumstances that create doubts about a privately-compensated private judge’s ability to remain impartial.'
Yet, Pitt's team has responded saying Jolie had been made fully aware that Ouderkirk had accepted 'additional new engagements' involving the actor's team, and that she had 'never objected' to Ouderkirk's 'continued involvement' in the proceedings until now.
In Pitt's response, he also pointed out three times where Jolie and her lawyers are said to have asked to extend Ouderkirk's appointment to their ongoing divorce case.
The documents add that Pitt is concerned about how the continued delays will affect their children, saying: 'Unfortunately, the individuals hurt most by Jolie's transparently tactical gambit are the parties' own children, who continue to be deprived of a final resolution to these custody issues.'
Jolie's lawyer DeJean responded to Pitt's filing last week in a statement to PEOPLE saying: 'It is unfortunate that Mr. Pitt's team has sought to intervene ahead of Judge Ouderkirk's response.'

'One can only conclude that this is an attempt to obstruct or influence Judge Ouderkirk's answer. Any delay in these proceedings is due to their zealous attempt to create an unrecognized special exception for their client's benefit.'
The report adds that a source close to Pitt's team claim that it was Jolie's team who actually knew the judge first, and that 'the only excuse for their filing is that her team knew they were likely to lose and they needed to stall by changing the referee in the fourth quarter.'
'This is the Judge who married them, someone who her team knew well and who her team actually introduced to the couple,' a Pitt source claims.
