Angelina Jolie has filed for divorce from Brad Pitt. There was reportedly no cheating involved (though some claim Pitt was having an affair with co-star Marion Cotillard), just a fight over how Pitt parents the couple’s six children. Jolie is seeking sole physical custody of the kids, with Pitt being granted only visitation. An attorney for Jolie Pitt said the decision to divorce was made “for the health of the family.”
Brad released his own statement saying, “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.”Some sources say that Jolie was “fed up” with Pitt’s substance abuse, including pot and booze, combined with anger issues. It is also being reported that they have not been agreeing on their careers. Angelina is supposedly looking to take a step away from Hollywood but Brad wants to keep working.
