It’s truly the end of times. Love is dead, ring the bells, cover the mirrors. Angelina Jolie has filed for divorce from her husband Brad Pitt. TMZ reports that their listed date of separation was September 15, and that Jolie has hired Laura Wasser, a lawyer famous for handling celebrity divorce. In fact, Wasser assisted Jolie during her first divorce from Billy Bob Thornton. Now, that was a divorce we all expected, but this? I am unmoored!
The docs were filed on Monday, and though jolie is not asking for spousal support, she does want physical custody over the couple’s six children. Pitt will have visitation rights, if Jolie gets her way. The couple has been together since 2004, though they only married in 2014.
It’s unclear what caused their “irreconcilable differences” but rumors circulated that Jolie was unhappy with the chemistry she observed between Pitt and his co-star Marion Cotillard on the set of Allied. Somewhat reminiscent of the chemistry between Jolie and Pitt when they met on the set of Mr. and Mrs. Smith.
In other news, Jennifer Aniston is having a good day, probably.
Update: TMZ is now reporting that a source says Angelina was fed up with Pitt’s parenting and how it was affected by his use of weed and maybe alcohol. She allegedly believes he’s developed an anger problem that makes him dangerous around the kids. They deny the rumors about Cotillard, saying “there’s no third person.” Anger issues is definitely worse than cheating, so choose your own adventure.
