Mumbai: Hollywood actress-filmmaker Angelina Jolie has filed for divorce from actor husband Brad Pitt after two years of marriage, citing irreconcilable differences.
Fans of the couple across the globe are saddened by this news but definitely are not shocked since rumours of problems between the couple have been there for past few months.
According to TMZ, the 41-year-old actress filed the legal documents on Monday and has asked for physical custody of the couple's six children. She is also asking the judge to give Pitt visitation rights and is in favour of a joint legal custody.
Sources close to the couple say Jolie's decision has to do with the way Pitt was parenting the children reportedly being upset with his methods. Jolie is not asking for spousal support, either.
Angelina, who’s been busy with her upcoming directorial, ‘First They Killed My Father,’ has listed the date of separation as Sept. 15, 2016.
One of the most celebrated Hollywood couples of all time, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt tied the knot in August 2014 after 10 years of courtship.
Meanwhile, a new trailer of Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard starrer Allied was released yesterday.
