The end of an era! Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt are getting divorced!
The whole world was shocked by the news that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie has split up. Millions of fans of this couple can't believe what could have happen to separate those two people. Apparently, the couple separated on September 15 and Jolie has filed for divorce citing irreconcilable differences. How is this possible after 12 years of relationship? She applied for physical custody of their six children, but also asked court to set visitations rights for Pitt.
The website TMZ.com that first reported that shocking news relied on anonymous sources. The couple was together since 2004 when they co-starred in "Mr. & Mrs. Smith", but they were married for only 2 years. From the beginning their relationship caused a lot of controversy, because for many Jolie was believed to be the cause of relationship breakdown of Pitt and Aniston.

In a statement to CNN on Tuesday Brad Pitt said: "I am very saddened by this, but what matters most now is the wellbeing of our kids." He also added: "I kindly ask the press to give them the space they deserve during this challenging time."
We can only imagine that it will be quite difficult to keep the press away since Jolie and Pitt are one of the most popular couple in the world and information about their divorce has left the whole world speechless.
Jolie’s attorney also said CNN that: "This decision was made for the health of the family.” Asked about Angelina, he just stated: "She will not be commenting at this time, and asks that the family be given their privacy during this difficult time."
The couple have six children: Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, and twins Knox and Vivienne.
Actress in court is represented by Laura Wasser who is considered to be very effective divorce lawyer. She has already worked for some of Hollywood's biggest names including Johnny Depp, Kim Kardashian, Heidi Klum, Christina Aguilera, Ashton Kutcher or Ryan Reynolds. What's more interesting, she apparently charges $850 an hour and only represents people who have at least $10 million on their accounts.
People speculated about their breakup and relationship problems since quite a long time.
Especially in 2015 when they promoted the film "By the Sea" about a couple having marriage troubles. Jolie said then that they're far from such problems: "It's because we are actually very, very stable and these aren't our issues." She also added: “To be clear: we have fights and problems like any other couple. We have days when we drive each other absolutely mad and want space, but the problems in the movie aren’t our specific problems.”
Now fans of Brangelina divided into "Team Brad" and "Team Angelina". It also seems that friends of this pair divide into 2 groups: those who were expecting this split-up since a long time and those who only pretend to be very surprised.
Among many reasons for relationship breakup of the beloved pair of Hollywood, it is given that Jolie was "upset with Pitt's parenting skills". Other sources have reported that Brad had an affair with a French actress Marion Cotillard and that he abused alcohol and weed. Apparently his busy life had a negative impact on the family.
It is also said that Jolie is responsible for this breakdown, as she has a very difficult and demanding nature, and Brad couldn't cope with it anymore.
There are sources claiming that it was Angelina who had alcohol problems. Supposedly her frighteningly low weight was also a big problem for Pitt.
Radaronline.com shared information that Brad did not want to agree for the next adoption of three children from Syria, whose mother died.
What is the real reason of their problems? We probably won't find out and maybe that's better for all.
