Jolie-Pitt filed legal docs Monday citing irreconcilable differences, according to TMZ. The gossip site reported that sources connected with the couple said … Angelina’s decision to file has to do with the way Brad was parenting the children … she was extremely upset with his methods.
“Our sources say, Angelina became “fed up” with Brad’s consumption of weed and possibly alcohol, and mixed with what she believes is “an anger problem” … felt it became dangerous for the children.”
She asked for physical custody of the couple’s shared six children – Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Vivienne, and Knox – asking for Pitt to be granted visitation, the outlet said, citing legal documents.
An attorney for Jolie Pitt, Robert Offer, told the Associated Press that she has filed for the dissolution of the marriage. Offer said the decision was made “for the health of the family.”
The couple was last spotted together in mid July, just ahead of their second wedding anniversary.
Just last month, sources told PEOPLE that the couple were “as happy as ever.”
Pitt and Angelina Jolie first met on the 2003 set of their 2005 thriller Mr. & Mrs. Smith, and began dating a few years later – after the actor’s split from then-wife Jennifer Aniston. May 2006, the couple welcomed their first child together, daughter Shiloh, now 10. She joined Jolie Pitt’s adopted brood of Maddox, now 15, and Zahara, now 11.
In 2007, the couple adopted son Pax, now 12, from a Vietnamese orphanage. The next year, twins Knox and Vivienne were born. The two got engaged in 2012 and married in 2014.
This divorce news is shocking and sad. For the kids sake, we hope the two stay amicable during the divorce and custody proceedings.
