An attorney for Angelina Jolie said the decision to divorce was made “for the health of the family”.
Angelina Jolie has filed for divorce from Brad Pitt after just two years of marriage. Celebrity gossip site TMZ reports that the Hollywood actress submitted documents on Monday (19 September) citing irreconcilable differences. Robert Offer, an attorney for Angelina Jolie, said the decision to divorce was made “for the health of the family”. She is seeking custody of the couple’s children.
They have six children together, including three they adopted: 13-year-old Maddox from Cambodia; 10-year-old Pax from Vietnam; and nine-year-old Zahara, from Ethiopia. The couple’s three biological children are eight-year-old Shiloh, and Knox and Vivienne, six-year-old twins.
The couple, who fell in love on the set of 2005 action movie Mr & Mrs Smith, tied the knot in August 2014 in a private ceremony in the south of France. Last year, the couple starred together in her film By the Sea, playing a glamorous couple holidaying together in France while their marriage was on the rocks.
