Angelina Jolie has filed for divorce from Brad Pitt after two years of marriage and 12 years of dating.
According to CNBC, Jolie’s attorney, Robert Offer issued the following statement:
“This decision was made for the health of the family. She will not be commenting, and asks that the family be given its privacy at this time.”
Brad Pitt has also come out with the following 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.”
Apparently, Jolie expressed irreconcilable differences and wants physical custody of their six children and requests Brad is only given visitation.
TMZ reports, Angelina doesn’t want Brand to have joint physical custody because of the way Brad was parenting their children.
“Our sources say, Angelina became “fed up” with Brad’s consumption of weed and possibly alcohol, and mixed with what she believes is “an anger problem” … felt it became dangerous for the children.”
