Angelina Jolie files for divorce from Brad Pitt

Los Angeles, Sep 20: The 2016 break-up curse continues as Hollywood actress-filmmaker Angelina Jolie files for divorce from actor Brad Pitt after just two years of marriage.

The 41-year-old star, who filed the legal documents on Monday, has cited irreconcilable differences as the cause of the split, reported TMZ.

She has asked for the physical custody of the couple's six children and wants Pitt, 52, to have visitation. Jolie is apparently in favour of a joint legal custody.

Sources close to the couple say Jolie's decision has to do with the way Pitt was parenting the children and she was extremely upset with his methods.

Jolie is reportedly not asking for spousal support. She has listed the date of separation as September 15, 2016.

The news comes as a heartbreak for the couple's fans and shippers but definitely not a shock because the rumours of problems between the two had been there for past few months.

Earlier this year, Hollywood's other famous couples like Johnny Depp-Amber Rose, Taylor Swift- alvin Harris, Taylor Swift-Tom Hiddleston, Demi Lovato-Wilmer Valderrama and Ozzy Osbourne-Sharon Osbourne announced their splits.
