Angelina Jolie files for divorce from Brad Pitt
Hollywood golden couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are getting divorced.
Entertainment news site TMZ reported that Jolie filed for divorce on Monday, citing ‘irreconcilable differences’.
The couple have been together for twelve years after meeting on the set of Mr. & Mrs. Smith, where they played a married couple unaware of each other’s secret lives as assassins – until they were asked to kill one another. They have been married since 2014 and share six children.
According to TMZ’s sources, Jolie grew fed up with Pitt’s parenting style and disliked his use of substances such as weed and alcohol. She also believes he has an “anger problem”, that is confounded by the use of these substances.
Jolie is seeking full custody of the couple’s six children: Maddox (15), Pax (12), Zahara (11), Shiloh (10), and twins Knox and Vivienne (8).
This will be Jolie’s third divorce, after previously marrying and splitting from fellow actors Johnny Lee Miller and Billy Bob Thornton.
Pitt was previously married to Jennifer Aniston before meeting Jolie in 2004.
