No more Brangelina? Say it ain’t so. Angelina Jolie reportedly files for divorce from Brad Pitt

Angelina Jolie has reportedly filed for divorce from Brad Pitt.

TMZ reports that legal documents filed by Jolie cite irreconcilable differences between the couple. The date of separation listed by Angelina in the papers is September 15, 2016.

The pair have been together since 2004 and got married in August 2014, despite promising to wait until after same-sex marriage was legalized across the US – which took place a year later in June 2015. The Hollywood power couple have six adopted and biological children together.

Angelina’s attorney Robert Offer has confirmed news of the split.

“This decision was made for the health of the family,” Offer said in a statement. “She will not be commenting, and asks that the family be given its privacy at this time.”

Her now estranged husband Brad Pitt subsequently told People: “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.”

    These two made me believe in love… now they’re just calling it quits. Sh*t ain’t even fair! This is the part where we put on sack clothes and smear our bodies with ash.

    Most disheartening piece of news I’ve gotten all week. So sad after adopting children from all races. Sigh.

    While Beyonce is busy writing bashful songs to Edible Catering. *walks away*

      Was that seriously a potshot at Beyoncé for choosing to work through her marital issues and stay on in her marriage?

      You’ve got your metaphors displaced. Edible Catering is to Tiwa Savage what Becky with the good hair is to Beyonce.

    Rather surprising the investment people had in this couple. The meltdowns have been amusing to watch.

    The memes on twitter have been hilarious. lol.

    But I dunno, I get this feeling that Jennifer Aniston would be genuinely empathetic to hear this news, and not be smug the way the internet believes.
