Brangelina is over. Angelina Jolie reportedly filed for divorce from Brad Pitt on Monday, citing irreconcilable differences.?
According to the report from TMZ, the divorce was triggered by a conflict over the kids, substance abuse and anger. ?Jolie is requesting for physical custody of their 6 children. She also asked the judge to give Pitt visitation rights, but not joint physical custody. Jolie is reportedly not asking for spousal support.?
Incidentally, the trailer for Brad?s new movie,?Allied, was released at the same time news of the divorce broke out. Rumors say that Angelina learned her husband is pulling the same stunt as he had years ago when they first met, but this time with co-actor Marion Cotillard. According to this report from?Page Six, Pitt has been rumored to have been cozying up to Cotillard during the pair?s filming of the World War II drama in London. Jolie had to hire a private eye because she felt he was fooling around on the set. The PI allegedly also discovered that Pitt is also partying like a single guy on a mission, and Angelina has had enough.?No official statements from either Pitt or Jolie has been released though and we doubt we?ll be getting any confirmation from them soon.
Jolie is being represented by famed Hollywood divorce attorney Laura Wasser. She lists the date of separation as September 15, 2016. The couple was last seen in July in West Hollywood, when they took the twins, Knox and Vivienne for a birthday breakfast.
When Brad finally broke his silence after news of the divorce came out, he said that his focus now is their kids.
?I am very saddened by this, but what matters most now is the well-being of our kids,? he said in a statement given to People. ?I kindly ask the press to give them the space they deserve during this challenging time.?
No happy ever after for Brangelina
Brangelina has been together since 2004. They first got together on the set of?Mr. and Mrs. Smith, where reports said they had an affair while doing the film. At the time, Brad was still married to his first wife, Jennifer Aniston.?
Brad, 52, had proposed to Angelina, 41, in 2012, presenting her with an engagement ring that he and Robert Procop designed. Although the couple has been together for a long time without being married, Pitt had revealed then that it was the?kids?who were pushing them to get married.?
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie secretly married in 2014 at their Chateau Miraval in France. The private ceremony was held in a small chapel with only close family and friends in attendance. The couple?s kids?Maddox (15), Pax (12), Zahara (11), Shiloh (10) and twins Knox and Vivienne (8)?participated in their parent?s wedding.
