On Monday, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt fans were hit with shocking news that Jolie had filed for divorce and it left them saying “say it ain’t so”!! Jolie filed for divorce from Brad Pitt after two years of marriage, but after 12 years together, she is calling it quits. The couple share six children: Maddox Jolie-Pitt, 15, Pax Jolie-Pitt, 12, Zahara Jolie-Pitt, 11, Shiloh Jolie-Pitt, 10, and twins Knox Jolie-Pitt and Vivienne Jolie-Pitt, 8.
“Angelina will always do what’s in the best interest of taking care of her family,” Geyer Kosinski, Jolie’s longtime manager, told E! News in an exclusive statement Tuesday. “She appreciates everyone’s understanding of their need for privacy at this time.”
Jolie’s attorney, Robert Offer, confirmed Tuesday that she had indeed filed the paperwork to end the marriage. The decision was made “for the health of the family,” and that Jolie “will not be commenting, and asks that the family be given its privacy at this time” Offer told Reuters. Jolie is seeking physical custody of their six children and asking the court to grant Pitt visitation. Pitt
Jolie listed date of separation as Sept. 15, 2016 and cited “irreconcilable differences” per court documents filed by the Oscar winning actress and she is not seeking spousal support. There is some speculation that part of the reasons for the filing are disagreements over methods of parenting, Angelina became “fed up” with Brad’s consumption of weed and possibly alcohol, and mixed with what she believes is “an anger problem” … felt it became dangerous for the children. That is just a few of the possible reasons in addition to infidelity.
So there you have it, its pretty safe to say that no one is immune to the divorce bug in Hollywood.
