Just two years after walking down the aisle, Angelina Jolie has filed for divorce from husband Brad Pitt.

The actors have been in a relationship since 2004 and are parents to six children whom it appears are the source of the divorce filing. According to TMZ, “Angelina’s decision to file has to do with the way Brad was parenting the children … she was extremely upset with his methods.
We’re told there was no alleged ‘third person’ … her decision to file was solely over Brad’s interaction with their children.”

Jolie filed the legal documents Monday citing irreconcilable differences and is asking for sole physical custody of their kids, Zahara, Maddox, Pax, Shiloh Nouvel, Knox Léon, and Vivienne Marcheline. She is reportedly asking the judge to give Pitt visitation and only join legal custody — not joint physical custody. The 41-year-old actress, who is reportedly worth $160 million, isn’t seeking spousal support.

We’re sad to see this couple split after 12 years together, especially after they wed in 2014 at the urging of their children. At the time, Pitt told Glamour magazine of the pair changing their mind about not getting married as a stance against the former ban on gay marriage:

“We’d actually like to [get married] and it seems to mean more and more to our kids. We made this declaration some time ago that we weren’t going to do it till everyone can. But I don’t think we’ll be able to hold out. It means so much to my kids, and they ask a lot. And it means something to me, too, to make that kind of commitment. I’m not going to go any further. But to be in love with someone and be raising a family with someone and want to make that commitment and not be able to is ludicrous, just ludicrous.”

We hope the stars will be able to amicably co-parent.
