Shocking news! Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are going to divorce! Fans around the world are devastated by this unfortunate development in the lives of two of the most famous couples in the world.
Apparently, it was Angelina who filed for divorce from Brad last Sept. 15 citing irreconcilable differences as the reason. She also asked for physical custody of their six children. Moreover, she’s not asking for spousal or child support.
Angelina’s lawyer Robert Offer said that the decision to file for divorce was made for the health of the family. Some people close to the couple revealed that among the specific reasons why Angie chose end her marriage was that she disagreed with Brad’s parenting methods. There are also reports that Angie had enough of Brad’s weed and alcohol consumption as well as his anger problem.
But that is not all. Right after their split hit the news, rumors came out that the real reason for Brangelina’s split was a third party! Apparently, Angie hired a private detective who found out that Brad was fooling around with Marion Cotillard, who co-stars with him on the new film Allied. However, Brad’s side denied that he was having an affair with Cotillard.
Brad also released his statement to People, “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.”
Angie and Brad have been together for 12 years and share six children: Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Viviene, and Knox. They’ve only been married for two years. Theirs was a surprise ceremony at their Chateau Miraval in France last August 2014.
These two have weathered so many things together and to his credit Brad was a very supportive husband to Angie during her health issues. Many people and couples look up to them and how they make their relationship work but now that’s going down the drain just like so many Hollywood marriages. Some good things never really last.
