Angelina Jolie has filed for divorce from Brad Pitt. The actress filed paperwork in court on Monday citing the ever-popular irreconcilable differences.
According to TMZ, Angelina Jolie is very upset with Brad Pitt over the way that he parents their six children. The report indicates that Jolie is completely fed up with the way Brad acts when it comes to the kids, and she simply can’t take it anymore. However, sources did not elaborate on what it is that Brad does that Angelina disapproves of so strongly. It is clear that it must be something really bad if it caused her to file for divorce.
Despite ongoing rumors that Brad Pitt was having an affair, sources tell TMZ that Jolie’s decision to file for divorce had nothing to do with any kind of extra-marital affair. As reported by the Inquisitr, Brad Pitt has been accused of cheating on Angelina Jolie on more than one occasion.
“Sources connected with the couple tell us… 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,” reports TMZ.
Angelina Jolie divorce rumors have been circulating for months (if not years). The couple has always been very straightforward about their relationship, squashing rumors on their own terms and continuously showed the world that they were a strong, unbreakable unit. However, things weren’t all roses behind closed doors.
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have been together since 2004. The couple met on the set of their film Mr. & Mrs. Smith and fell in love while Brad was married to his then-wife, Jennifer Aniston. The relationship shocked the world, but Brad and Angelina didn’t care. They moved forward, taking on the world, and were easily Hollywood’s hottest power couple for several years. They procreated, they adopted, and they became Brangelina.
Even though people wanted to despise Brangelina, it was impossible. These two were charismatic, effortless, and just seemed to be the perfect fit. People were in awe of the two of them, and it was a phenomenon for many years.
The couple married in 2014 rather quietly, deciding to do so for the sake of their children. The couple shared a special day with their six all taking part in the nuptials.
Angelina Jolie’s divorce filing is shocking to many despite these rumors. Even though it’s inevitable in Hollywood, this split is easily the biggest — quite possibly ever. The reactions on social media reflect just that.
