Angelina Jolie has reportedly filed for divorce from husband Brad Pitt.
Angelina Jolie has filed for divorce from Brad Pitt, citing irreconcilable differences.
Jolie and Pitt “fell in love” 12 years ago on the set of Mr and Mrs Smith, but did not confirm their relationship until 2006.
They married in France in 2014, before marriage equality became law in the US, having previously vowed in an Esquire article not to tie the knot until same-sex couples who wanted to get married were able to do so.
Pitt later explained their change of heart was due to their children.
“We made this declaration some time ago that we weren’t going to do it till everyone can,” he said. “But I don’t think we’ll be able to hold out. It means so much to my kids, and they ask a lot. And it means something to me, too, to make that kind of commitment.”
Now it looks like it’s all over for the couple, according to infamous gossip site TMZ. They report that the 41-year-old actress, who came out as bisexual in 2003, filed papers this week and is asking for custody of the couple’s six children, Maddox, Zahara, Shiloh, Pax, Knox and Vivienne.
According to media reports, Jolie and Pitt hadn’t been seen together in public since November last year.
