Angelina Jolie files for divorce from Brad Pitt
NEW YORK - Brangelina is no more. Angelina Jolie Pitt has filed for divorce from Brad Pitt, bringing an end to one of the world's most star-studded, tabloid-generating romances.
An attorney for Jolie Pitt, Robert Offer, said Tuesday that she has filed for the dissolution of the marriage. Offer said the decision was made "for the health of the family."
Angelina Jolie Pitt cited "irreconcilable difference" in divorce papers filed Monday in Los Angeles to end her marriage with Brad Pitt. The actress is seeking physical custody of their six children, with visitation rights for Pitt.
The couple has six children together: Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, and twins Knox and Vivienne.
Though together for 12 years, Pitt and Jolie only wed in August 2014. They married privately in the French hamlet of Correns in Provence with their children serving as ring bearers and throwing flower petals. They announced the ceremony days later.
