Angelina Jolie files for divorce from Brad Pitt

Angelina Jolie and Brad PittHollywood’s It couple calls it quits. According to TMZ, Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from Brad Pitt citing irreconcilable differences.

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.

This was Brad’s second marriage and Angelina’s third — she was previously married to actor Jonny Lee Miller from 1996 to 1999 and then to  Billy Bob Thornton from 2000 to 2003.

Angelina has hired divorce attorney Laura Wasser, who represented Johnny Depp during his split from Amber Heard, to handle her case.

Let’s take a look back at Angelina and Brad on the cover of Tribute and Teen Tribute, as well as in better times:

    They had a decent run. I knew I felt the world stop spinning for a second.
    But really they seem like they love their kids a lot and I hope they can co-parent in the best interest of the kids.

    Say it isn’t so! This is just a publicity stunt, right!?
    Force him to get some help for his “problems” before you divorce. Think of the family and how much you guys went through to get to this point.

    I normally watch Documentaries because watching people on screen who
    pretend to be Acting gets very Old with the so called Actors we have right now,
    however Angelina and Brad are still 2 people i can watch on screen and actually
    get ” Into ” the Movie
    there are others but Very few who can hold my attention on a Movie screen
    they lasted a LONG time together as a Hollywood couple so best of luck to
    both of them .

    Somehow, this isn’t a surprise. Actors aren’t faithful. It’s very rare, there’s too much temptation. Shame he couldn’t keep it in his pants though with small children at home. This will destroy them.

    I couldn’t care less and I feel no sympathy. She’s a joke, he’s (still) in the midst of a midlife crisis and Jennifer Aniston is loving every bit of it. I’m dying to hear what Chelsea Handler has to say. Dig that knife in a little deeper!

    i feel sad. Both are superstar actors and both do amazing charity work. a nice family; a shame it will be splitting up

    He should have stayed with Jen. He’d be happy now instead of torn away from his children.
