There has been a seismic shift in Los Angeles today, with news that power couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have split and filed for divorce.

Angelina Jolie reportedly submitted papers to end the couple’s two-year marriage on Monday, citing irreconcilable differences for their split. We can only imagine it went down a little something like this:

Mr Mrs Smith Brad Pitt Angelina Divorce

According to TMZ, Angelina is seeking physical custody of their six children, Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Knox and Vivienne, eight, but wants a judge to give the 52-year-old Pitt some visitation rights.

It’s all very sad, but we can only imagine there’s someone in town silently squealing with the sweet satisfaction of revenge…

According to reports, Jolie decided to end their marriage because she was “extremely upset” with the way Pitt had been parenting the kids and so decided to seek joint legal custody, but not joint physical custody. The actress-turned-director is not seeking any spousal support. Unsurprising given that she charges between $7 million USD and $15 million USD per movie, with more than two films a year. That’ll do ya!

Brad Pitt has also released a statement to say that he’s saddened by the news, citing irreconcilable differences. In a statement, he said:

“I am very saddened by this, but what matters most now is the wellbeing of our kids.
“I kindly ask the press to give them the space they deserve during this challenging time.”

Jolie will be represented by Laura Wasser, who recently represented Johnny Depp in his split from Amber Heard.

The documents state the couple’s date of separation as September 15 2016.
They married in 2014 after 10 years together.

Prior to getting together, Brad was married to Jennifer Aniston, while Angelina was previously wed to Billy Bob Thornton and Johnny Lee Miller.

After meeting on the set of ‘Mr. and Mrs. Smith’, Angelina and Brad reunited on screen last year in ‘By the Sea’ and the actress – who also directed the film – previously admitted working on a film about a rowing married couple just weeks after they tied the knot was “dangerous” for their own relationship.

Jollie said:

“It was our way of testing ourselves. We knew that if we could get through this, we’d come out even stronger and happier. And we did.

“We’ve always liked putting ourselves through challenges, even though it was maybe a little more dangerous for us as a couple.

“I don’t think we want to go through it again though.”
