Angelina Jolie has filed for divorce from Brad Pitt, after two years of marriage and 12 years together the actress’s lawyer has confirmed.
Robert Offer said the actress filed for “dissolution of marriage” on Monday, adding the “decision was made for the health of the family”.
“She will not be commenting, and asks that the family be given its privacy at this time,” Offer added in the statement.
Jolie is asking for physical custody of their 6 children – Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, and twins Knox and Vivienne. She is asking the judge to give Pitt visitation. She does not want Brad to have joint physical custody, only joint legal custody.
Jolie was previously married to actor Jonny Lee Miller after meeting on the set of Hackers in 1996 and Billy Bob Thornton after the pair made Pushing Tin in 1999.
