Angelina filed the papers on Monday, seeking physical custody of their children – Maddox, 13, Pax, 11, Zahara, 9, Shiloh, 8, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 6. She did suggest visitation rights for Brad, but there was no mention of spousal support.
According to TMZ, sources reveal that Angelina, 41, is upset with Brad’s parenting methods. TMZ reports that she is “fed up” with his weed consumption and alcohol, and that his “anger problem” could be dangerous for the kids.
The couple has been together since 2004 and were last seen in July, shortly before their two-year anniversary. The couple tied the knot in August 2014 in France.
Brad Pitt, 52, has released a statement to the press that reads, “I am very saddened by this, but what matters most now is the well-being of our kids. I kindly ask the press to give them the space they deserve during this challenging time.”
The two met while filming Mr. & Mrs. Smith in 2004, when Brad was still married to first wife, Jennifer Aniston. They divorced in October 2005 after five years of marriage and Jennifer went on to marry actor/screenwriter Justin Theroux in 2015.
Angelina has hired divorce attorney Laura Wasser, who represented Johnny Depp during his split from Amber Heard, to handle her case.
