An unnamed source told E! News the husband and wife are currently not moving forward with their divorce.

“It’s true that the divorce is not moving forward right now. They are taking a breather and seeing what happens,” the insider told E! News.

Since announcing news of their split, Jolie and Pitt have both independently discussed their fallout in interviews. Jolie has moved herself and their children into a home in Los Angeles, and Pitt has been working to stay sober. According to the E! source, these changes have convinced the former couple to reconsider their relationship.

“They don’t take divorce lightly and want to make sure they are doing the right thing,” the source reportedly said, adding that Pitt’s sobriety has “really changed” things. “A lot has changed since Angelina filed.”

The parents’ future is still “up in the air,” as “things can change quickly ... But they aren’t pursuing the divorce at this time,” the source said, according to E!.

Following their filing for divorce, Jolie was granted custody of the couple’s children as part of a temporary agreement, allowing Pitt “therapeutic visitation” rights.

Jolie and Pitt began dating in 2005 after staring in “Mr. & Mrs. Smith.” They became engaged in 2012 and married in 2014. Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt in September 2016, citing irreconcilable differences.

The crash happened at Rays Road and Central Drive in DeKalb County. The mother, Dawt Chin Sung, was holding Tluang Tha Men, 8, in her arms when the car struck them.

Friends and relatives said they're still in shock.

“Everyone is praying for them,” a friend said, asking not to be identified.

Close friends and relatives of Tluang gathered at the little girl’s home in Stone Mountain after they heard the horrible news.

“They hit them at the bus stop,” the friend said.

Authorities said Sung was carrying her daughter to a bus stop at the corner of Rays Road and Central Drive, which is very close to their home.

Police said they were walking in a crosswalk when Ejigayheu H. Tsegaye, 38, hit them.

Witnesses told police the bus driver put out the stop sign arm but the driver went through the green light at the intersection anyway.

The little girl was killed. Her mother was taken to the hospital with moderate injuries, police said.

Investigators said they have to recreate the scene and decide if they’re going to charge the driver with a crime or not.

The driver’s relatives said that the mother and daughter were not walking in the crosswalk.

“When the accident happened, the lady, she’s not crossing in the crosswalk, she cross in the road,” the driver’s cousin, Lung Thawng, said.

Police will have the final say and the victim’s relatives said they’ll withhold their judgment pending the outcome of the investigation.

“If the stop sign was up and hit her, that’s a different story. But if the bus stop wasn’t there, I don’t know what to say about that,” the friend said.

Relatives said that the 8-year-old victim leaves behind three sisters, one of whom is a newborn.

Nakia Williams was last seen Sept. 7, 2017, after leaving her home on Wiegon Lane, according to Charlotte-Mecklenburg police.

Georgia law enforcement officials were able to confirm Wednesday that she was seen in Emanuel County, Georgia, and that she was possibly staying in Toombs County, Georgia, a neighboring county.

“And I thought I heard something wrong, and I was like, 'What did you say?' And she repeated, 'We found her,'” Shrounda Alston, Nakia’s cousin, said.

Nakia’s mother told Channel 9 that she was found that same day in Lyons, Georgia, which is more than 250 miles away from Charlotte.

“I was just able to wrap my arms around her, and just, we just cried for about five minutes,” Cherise Williams-Stowe, Nakia’s mother, told Channel 9. “We were just so happy to see each other.”

The family received the tip they have been praying for for months.

Family and friends did everything they to find Nakia, including handing out flyers and posting on a Facebook page called “Our missing hearts.”

Williams-Stowe told Channel 9 she still doesn't know the whole story of why Nakia disappeared and what happened in the past five months.

“She said she learned a lot while she was out,” Williams-Stowe said. “She learned it was hard trying to be out there on your own and everybody doesn't love you.”

Many of those questions are still being investigated, but Alston said the family can finally rest knowing Nakia is back home.

“And I had to keep the momentum going for her. I didn't want her to be forgotten,” Alston said.

Emily Rhoades Randolph said she purchased a package of fresh cod on Feb. 9 at Costco. On Monday, she recorded video of what appears to be a worm wriggling around a corner of the sealed package and posted it on her Facebook page on Wednesday. The sell-by date on the package is the same day she recorded the video, according to Randolph.

Randolph said in the Facebook post that when she returned the contaminated fish to Costco, the clerk at the seafood counter commented that another customer had returned salmon with worms in it. Randolph said she did not receive an apology for the incident.

Randolph shared the incident to warn others to check their food.

An Indianapolis mother is accused of feeding her child a dangerous homemade concoction in an attempt to "cure" the child's autism, police said.

The woman's husband claims his wife placed drops of hydrochloric acid and a water purifying solution that contained chlorine into their child's beverage, FOX59 reported. The woman reportedly referred to the mixture as the "miracle mineral solution" and said she found the recipe on a Facebook group page. The husband told police that his wife had fed their child the toxic mixture a few weeks ago, but he only found out about it last weekend.

The “miracle mineral solution” has been reviewed by the FDA, which warned that it is essentially bleach, FOX59 reported. The mixture is often promoted as being a cure-all for everything from cancer to autism.

The Indianapolis Police Department told FOX59 that the Department of Child Services is reviewing the case and has removed the child from the home. Police declined to release the names of the parents or any of the child's identifying information. The investigation remains active.
