It’s official. Hollywood’s power couple is no more.
The rumor of a marriage crumbling between Hollywood A-listers Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt started circulating eight months ago. Though the couple denied it and stayed together, well, let’s just say that rumors, in one way or another, always root from something.
On September 20th, 2016, Angelina Jolie has officially filed divorce papers, her lawyer Robert Offer confirms.
According to entertainment news site TMZ.com who broke the news on the internet, Jolie cited “irreconcilable differences” on the paper and asks for physical custody of their six children, but allowing Pitt visitation rights. Jolie has reportedly not asked for spousal support.
Sources say it was Jolie’s growing alarm over Pitt’s behavior that led to the divorce. The award-winning actor and director has allegedly been consuming substances—a mix of weed and alcohol—which Jolie deems dangerous for their children, on top of what she believes is “an anger problem.”
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have been together since 2004 since meeting on the set of Mr. and Mrs. Smith, and tied the knot on August 2014.
