One of Hollywood’s most beloved marriages appears to be over as Angelina Jolie has filed for divorce from her partner

One of Hollywood’s most beloved marriages appears to be over as Angelina Jolie has filed for divorce from her partner of 12 years, Brad Pitt.

Brad released a statement to The Daily Mail stating “I am very saddened by this, but what matters most now is the wellbeing of our kids. I kindly ask the press to give them the space they deserve during this challenging time.”

What were the issues that resulted in the marriage breakdown? According to the papers filed Angelina is citing “irreconcilable differences”. According to other media sites, the laundry list of issues stems from Brad having anger problems and an alleged substance abuse problem.

Two other factors, according to TMZ, is that Angelina didn’t agree with Brad’s parenting style and believes that he was having an affair with the co-star of his new film Allied, Marion Cotillard. This wouldn’t be the first time that this has happened for Brad as he met Angelina on the set of their film Mr & Mrs Smith while he was still married to Jennifer Aniston.

A friend of the couple told The Daily Mail that another reason was their differences in lifestyles with Brad wanting to go out and experience new things and Angelina wanting to focus on the children and her work with the UN.

The couple has six children together, and Angelina has filed for physical custody of them and is not asking for any financial support.

    Seems to me this is going to be wonderful cannon fodder for the women’s mags. Do we really care what these two do? In a world in which appears to be run by celebrity – in which a reality TV host with dubious credentials can run for president and be a danger to the whole world – nothing surprises me.

    Most so-called ‘celebrities’ don’t come any where near the way I live my life, so I couldn’t care less what they do!

    Most of the Hollywoodites’ the days’ have no acting ability!
    All the good actors’, & actresses’ from there are long gone, now.

    I much prefer to watch, & listen to, those in the British theatrical, film, & tv worlds’!
    At least they can not only act, but also you can actually understand them when they speak!

    It never surprises me with what happens to screen stars they live in an artificial bubble. Now 6 kids are involved. No doubt she has the money to care for them but the confusion these kids go through is so sad.
