Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt seemed to be the picture-perfect Hollywood couple. The pair has been together since 2005 after filming Mr. & Mrs. Smith. Brad Pitt divorced his wife at the time, Jennifer Aniston, and he and Jolie now have six children together; both biological and adopted.

For a long time, Jolie and Pitt dated and raised a family without officially getting married. In 2014, the two actors decided to secretly tie the knot, and now, just two years later, they have separated.

Angelina Jolie filed for divorce citing irreconcilable differences and listed their separation date as September 15.
Angelina’s father and fellow actor Jon Voight has revealed all of the details of the split to Radar Online.
“I don’t know much about it except it must be something serious. I just got the news and I’m concerned.”
Rumors have been circling for months about the couple’s marital issues.
The Inquisitr reported that Brad Pitt has been accused of cheating on more than one occasion.
However, Angelina’s father is saying that the real reason for the divorce may have more to do with the children.
Although Angelina hasn’t told Jon Voight what caused the split specifically, he claimed he would find out when he “sees Angie and the children soon.”
Angelina is seeking full custody of their six children. She wants to leave Pitt with visitation rights.
“The priority is always the children. I know she’s always concerned about the children.”
Angelina’s father claims that he believes that his daughter and his son-in-law will remain amicable for their kids.
The couple has six children together: Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Vivienne, and Knox.
Jolie adopted her eldest son Maddox in 2002 from Cambodia in 2002 before she had gotten together with Pitt.
Zahara Marley was adopted as a six-month-old orphan from Ethiopia. Brad Pitt was involved in her adoption process, and she and Pitt later made the decision to adopt Zahara together.
Angelina and Brad had their first biological child together in 2006. Shiloh Jolie-Pitt has been in the news for expressing her desire to dress and identify as a boy.
Angelina has publicly stated that she had absolutely no issue with it and encouraged her children to be their true selves.
I'm genuinely sad about this. They seemed more than happy, and so accepting and inclusive with their kids. Sad day. #Brangelina

In 2007, Angelina and Brad adopted another child, Pax Thien, an orphan from Vietnam.
Just a year later, Angelina gave birth to twins: a boy, Knox Leon, and a girl, Vivienne Marcheline
Vivienne had a small role in Jolie’s movie, Maleficent.
Angelina and Brad seemed to be living happily ever after, but perhaps it was all a bit of smoke and mirrors.

Rumors have been flying that there has been a major disagreement about how Angelina and Brad wish to parent and raise their children.
Angelina is allegedly “extremely upset with his parenting methods.”
The Hollywood Gossip recently confirmed the power couple’s family issues.
“Apparently Pitt refused to spend the last days of summer Vacation with Jolie and their six kids. Instead, he went to Croatia with his friends.
“As Brad headed out the door, Angelina was in tears, truly feeling she’d lost Brad once and for all. The marriage is broken and Brad and Angelina’s $400 million divorce is underway.”
Angelina clearly aims to take over as the main parental influence in the kid’s lives. She is seeking full custody and no spousal support from Pitt. She plans to continue raising the kids on her own terms.
Jolie’s father stated that he remains hopeful, although he was just as shocked as the rest of us when he heard the news.
“I’m hopeful. Say a little prayer. This is news to me too.”
Do you think Angelina will get full custody of the kids? How does Brad Pitt feel about only getting visitation rights?
