A source exclusively told Radar that Jolie and Thornton have never really stopped talking even after their split. "They have been in contact in some form or another with each other ever since they split," the source added.

The insider revealed that since Jolie and Pitt announced their divorce, Jolie and Thornton have been talking more, although the actress's focus at the moment is her charity work and kids.

Last year, Thornton admitted in his interview with GQ magazine that he has never really lost his affection for Jolie. During the interview, he reminisced about his relationship with the actress, which spanned from 2000 to 2003, and revealed two of his tattoos are especially dedicated to his ex-wife. "See, it's just resting there. You can still see the name," he said.

Meanwhile, Pitt and Jolie have reportedly split their assets in private since their divorce. However, the ex-couple has decided to keep Chateau Miraval.

Recently, Pitt and Jolie's partner in running the business, Marc Perrin, dismissed rumors that the property was already up for sale. According to Perrin, the ex-couple will continue running the French estate and its winemaking operations despite their divorce.

"It's an investment for the family and the children. They are involved in all aspects of running the estate," he said. He further revealed that despite the divorce of the celebrity couple, operations at the winemaking estate have continued without interruption.

Since Jolie filed for a divorce in September 2016, Pitt and Jolie's relationship has been plagued with rumors. Early this year, however, both sides agreed to keep the details of their separation in private.
