Brangelina is getting divorced
Worst Wednesday ever. Hollywood's power couple, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are breaking up. The actress has filed for a divorce from her husband, citing "irreconcilable differences". Her attorney Robert Offer has since confirmed the news.
"This decision was made for the health of the family," Robert said in a statement. "She will not be commenting, and asks that the family be given its privacy at this time."
Brad also released a statement to People: "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."
Court documents say that the couple officially separated last week, on 15 September after two years of marriage. Angelina has filed for custody of their six children: Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 8, while requesting that Brad be given visitation rights.
Page Six speculated that the split was a result of Brad's alleged cheating with Allied co-star Marion Cotillard. "She [Angelina] hired a private eye because she felt that he was fooling around with her on the set, and it turns out, he was. And that was the final straw," the source said.
Meanwhile, the rest of the world is freaking out.
