As Hollywood's most popular power couple, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie transformed into an exemplar of an unconventional romance – resisting legal marriage, adopting and raising their children and weathering whatever life threw at them with ease.
On Monday, September 19th, the Academy Award-winning actress, 41, filed divorce documents, citing irreconcilable differences. The pair married in 2014 and Jolie Pitt is seeking physical custody of the their six children – Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 8 – and she requested that the Fight Club actor, 52, only get joint legal custody. She is not asking for spousal support.
"This decision was made for the health of the family," attorney Robert Offer said in a statement to Reuters. "She will not be commenting and asks that the family be given its privacy at this time."
Pitt is currently starring in Allied, a World War II drama co-starring Marion Cotillard (who has been dragged into the tabloid fray). Pitt told People in a statement: "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."
