Her divorce battle with Brad Pitt is reportedly raging on, with sources claiming the couple will not reconcile due to child abuse allegations.
But Angelina Jolie cast her marital woes aside on Wednesday, as she treated her daughters Shiloh, 11, and Vivienne, nine, to a trip to a candy store in Los Angeles.
The 42-year-old Oscar winner looked typically chic in a black maxidress and stylish Grecian-inspired sandals as she defiantly stepped out amid her personal strife.
The Salt star hid her striking features behind a pair of classic black square-frame shades and wore minimal make-up to showcase her flawless complexion.
While Jolie was dressed head-to-toe in black, Vivienne sported a quirky crocodile T-shirt and Shiloh wore a black t-shirt and shorts.
The trio, who were accompanied by a nanny, arrived just before midday and spent 25 minutes inside candy store Rocket Fizz, with both children leaving with bags laden full of goodies.
Their relaxed outing comes after reports that Jolie and Pitt will not reconcile, despite previous claims they wanted to rekindle their marriage.
On Tuesday TMZ insisted that the actors are 'deep' in divorce negotiations.
It was added that Angelina and the 53-year-old Allied star will never get back together after allegations of abuse over one of their six kids - Maddox, 15; Pax, 13; Shiloh, 11; Zahara, 12; and twins Vivienne and Knox, nine - were made public.
'Both sides are hashing out both child custody and property settlements, and the divorce is full steam ahead,' a source told the site.
And a reunion is not going to happen because 'Angelina made extremely damaging allegations against Brad, claiming he was abusive to their kids,' added the insider.
In September 2016, there was an alleged 'altercation' that involved Brad and Maddox aboard a private jet that was heading from Nice, France to Los Angeles, California; after they landed, Angelina 'kicked him out,' according to Vanity Fair.
Brad has since been cleared of any wrongdoing, but that was only after the FBI and DCFS were involved.
They have not been photographed together in a year.
Last week Us Weekly claimed the former couple have not moved forward with proceedings to end their marriage.
One insider told the publication: 'The divorce is off. They haven't done anything to move it forward in several months and no one thinks they are ever going to.'
The reason given for the alleged stall is Brad coming clean about his boozing in an interview with GQ this past May.
A friend of Jolie told Us Weekly that the commitment to self-improvement has struck a chord with the actress, who reportedly previously claimed she would consider taking Brad back 'if he showed he was committed to raising a family.'
The source went on to add that Brad had 'got sober to try and win her back' and that the move to quit drinking was 'all she ever wanted.'
Meanwhile, the insider claims: 'Everyone thinks they are going to get back together.
'It wouldn't be surprising if they announced that they're calling [the split] off and trying to work things out.'
A source told DailyMail.com that the ‘divorce process has significantly slowed down but there has been no real change.'
The insider claimed that the former couple ‘are getting along for the sake of their children.'
Angelina gave her first interview since separating from husband Brad in September 2016 to Vanity Fair for its September issue.
The Maleficent star addressed the split revealing that 'things got bad' between the two by summer of 2016, adding that 'It's just been the hardest time, and we're just kind of coming up for air.'
After filing for divorce, Angelina took the kids and stayed in a rental before purchasing a $25 million mansion in Los Feliz, California.
The Lara Croft: Tomb Raider star said the new house was 'a big jump forward for us, and we're all trying to do our best to heal as a family.'
The Salt star and Brad were together for 12 years before they announced their split in September; the divorce has not yet been finalized. She is seeking sole custody of their children.
