Hollywood’s favourite couple are rumoured to be divorcing after just two years of marriage.
TMZ, the popular US show business website, has claimed that the stunning actress has filed papers citing “irreconcilable differences.”
Whilst often rumours are literally just rumours, that isn’t the case here as a legal representative for Jolie has confirmed that she has filed papers to end the marriage.
Her attorney, Robert Offer, announced in a statement that:
“The decision was made for the health of the family. She will not be commenting, and asks that the family be given its privacy at this time.”
TMZ also claimed that Jolie has requested physical custody of their six children and that they officially separated on September 15th this year.
It’s believed that Jolie will be represented by divorce lawyer Laura Wasser, who aided her in her divorce from Billy Bob Thornton and who is currently representing Johnny Depp in his divorce from Amber Heard.
Although the two have only been married for two years since their private wedding in France back in 2014, the couple have actually been together since 2004.
The stunning pair both met on the set of their film Mr And Mrs Smith. Brad was still married to Friends actress Jennifer Aniston and within weeks of Aniston filing for divorce, Jolie and Pitt went public with their relationship.
Whilst the nature of their differences have not yet been revealed, TMZ have speculated that there was growing conflict over parenting, with a source adding that the actress was “extremely upset with his methods.”
A source has also claimed that Jolie became “fed up” with her husbands consumption of “weed and possibly alcohol” mixed with his “anger problem.”
But other reports are claiming that Jolie filed for divorce after becoming increasingly jealous of another person. They are even going as far to claim that the actress hired a private eye who discovered that he had been having an affair with his Allied co-star, Marion Cotillard.
The couple have six children together – Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 8. It’s expected that Jolie will seek custody of them.
We’re absolutely gutted to hear that “Brangelina” will be no more. We wonder what Jennifer Aniston will think of the news…
