As the Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie divorce drags on, the Allied actor has found a friend to help him get through all the drama. According to a report in Hollywood Life, George Clooney is reportedly encouraging Brad to attend his Halloween party, to take his mind off the divorce.

A source told the website, "Brad has been invited to George's big annual Halloween party in Beverly Hills Saturday night. George has been encouraging Brad to attend his big A-list party with the most beautiful single women in Hollywood in attendance, but Brad has been hesitant to commit."

Amid their highly public divorce proceedings and child-abuse allegations against Pitt, the 52-year-old actor is in no mood to be a part of the party. Clooney is reportedly supporting him to get through this difficult time.

The source revealed, "Brad is still in the middle of a difficult time and is no mood to party. George has been talking to Brad almost every day since Brad split from Angie, and has been incredibly supportive. However, until the party happens Brad is not sure if he's up for being social."

Previously, Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) had extended its investigation into allegations that Pitt was involved in a mid-air incident with one of his children aboard a private jet on 15 September. The extension is reportedly due to new "key accusations".

Angelina Jolie had filed for divorce from Pitt, citing irreconcilable differences on 19 September. However, a new report claims that Brad hasn't yet filed a response to Jolie's divorce petition because he wants to "settle this privately like he has from the beginning."
