Shock in the showbiz! Angelina Jolie has just filed for divorce from her husband Brad Pitt! Despite all the rumors that circulated recently, it seems that this information has just been confirmed by her lawyer too. Robert Offer confirmed the news that she wanted a dissolution of marriage and that she took the decision for the health of the entire family.
Moreover, her lawyer added that the actress will not make any further comments regarding this situation and that the family wants to keep its privacy at the moment.
The couple, nicknamed “Brangelina”, have been together ever since 2004, but married in August 2014. This was Brad Pitt’s second marriage, since he was previously married to Jennifer Aniston, the star from “Friends”. For Angelina Jolie, it was the third marriage, after having relationships with Billy Bob Thornton and Jonny Lee Miller.
TMZ released further info on this topic, showing that Angelina cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the divorce request. Furthermore, she listed September 15 as the date of their separation, which is more than a month ago. As it seems, she also asked for custody of the six children they have together and she asked the judge to offer Pitt the right to visit. Out of the six children, only three are biological: Shiloh, Knox and Vivienne, while the rest, Maddox, Pax and Zahara, are adopted.
Last year, Jolie declared for The Telegraph that she and Brad have their own issues and that they have problems and fights just like any other normal couple. She declared they too have days when they drive each other crazy and need some space from each other, but still they tried to solve their problems. It seems that eventually this was not enough, since now we see the couple on the verge of breaking up.
