Say it isn’t so! Angelina Jolie has filed for divorce from Brad Pitt after over a decade together and two years of marriage.

The 41-year-old filed the paperwork on September 19, citing irreconcilable differences.

Addressing the divorce in a statement, Angelina’s attorney said on behalf of the actress: ‘This decision was made for the health of the family. She will not be commenting at this time, and asks that the family be given their privacy during this difficult time.’

Brad, 52, also released a statement regarding the split, sharing a similar sentiment.

‘I am very saddened by this, but what matters most now is the wellbeing of our kids,’ he said. ‘I kindly ask the press to give them the space they deserve during this challenging time.’

According to court documents, Angelina has asked for physical custody of the couple’s six children – Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, Vivienne and Knox, both eight – and is requesting that Brad be granted visitation rights.
