Angelina Jolie files for divorce from Brad Pitt

Forty-one-year-old actress Angelina Jolie filed for divorce last Monday, September 19 from her husband, 52-year-old actor Brad Pitt after two years of marriage, citing irreconcilable differences.

Jolie and Pitt have six children together, 15-year-old Maddox, 12-year-old Pax, 11-year-old Zahara, 10-year-old Shiloh, and eight-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox. They were married on August 14, 2014 after having a steady relationship for 12 years. According to court documents, Jolie and Pitt filed on Thursday, September 15, less than a month after their two-year anniversary.

In a statement, Jolie’s manager, Geyer Kosinski, said: “Angelina will always do what’s in the best interest to protect her children. She appreciates everyone’s understanding of their need for privacy at this time.”

A year ago, Jolie and Pitt entertained thoughts of growing old together, with Jolie saying, “I’m more interested in his 50-year-old self than his 40-year-old self. And then you look forward to more years together.” For his part, Pitt said in an interview with The Telegraph: “I’m surprised how much our history – Angie’s and mine – means to me. More than at any time in my life, I’ve got purpose – real purpose. It feels like I’ve found my place.”
