Both accused the other of doing bad things after she filed for divorced from the actor in September when he was accused of getting into a fight on an international flight that allegedly involved an altercation with one or more of their six kids.
He has since been cleared by the DCFS of any wrongdoing.
The source explains, "He wants to protect the kids as much as possible and not open them up to public scrutiny." Meanwhile, Angie often took her kids as her date to various red carpet events.
Most recently, she stepped out with her daughters Zahara and Shiloh to attend The National Board of Review Awards Gala in New York City on Tuesday night, January 9.
But a source revealed to People last month that the two are now getting along much better and even speaking directly to one another without intermediaries.
