OMG, it’s over — Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are getting a divorce. Angie filed legal documents on Sept. 19, citing irreconcilable differences and listing the date of separation as Sept. 15.
Angelina Jolie, 41, filed for divorce from Brad Pitt, 52, on Sept. 19, just less than one month after their two year wedding anniversary, TMZ reports. The actress is seeking physical custody of her and Brad’s six children, asking that her ex only have joint legal custody. She is not asking for spousal support.
The reason for the divorce is cited as ‘irreconcilable differences’ in Angie’s divorce documents, but specifically has to do with the way the actor was parenting their children, sources tell TMZ. The site reports that Angelina wasn’t agreeing with her husband’s parenting methods, and that a third party — i.e. cheating — wasn’t involved.
Angelina and Brad famously met on the set of Mr. & Mrs. Smith in 2004 while he was still married to Jennifer Aniston. They publicly got together just one month after his divorce in 2005, and he adopted her two children, Zahara and Maddox, the next year. Together, welcomed a daughter, Shiloh, in May 2006, adopted a son, Pax — Angie in 2007 and Brad later on in Feb. 2008 — and twins, Knox and Vivienne, in July 2008.
Rumors that these two were ending their marriage have been circulating for months, with jealousy and cheating allegations among the reasons why. It was also reported that they were discussing adopting a seventh child amidst the drama, although that obviously has not happened. We haven’t seen the two out in public together since July, when they were joined by the Knox and Vivienne for a birthday breakfast in California. Love is officially dead, you guys!
HollywoodLifers, are you shocked by Brad and Angelina’s split? Or did you totally see this coming? Do you think Angie will get full physical custody?
