Angelina Jolie has filed for divorce from Brad Pitt and the trigger was a conflict over the kids… TMZ has learned.
Jolie filed legal docs Monday citing irreconcilable differences.
She’s asking for physical custody of the couple’s 6 children. She is asking the judge to give Pitt visitation. It’s significant …she does not want Brad to have joint physical custody … only joint legal custody.
Sources connected with the couple tell us … Angelina’s decision to file has to do with the way Brad was parenting the children … she was extremely upset with his methods.
We’re told there was no alleged “third person” … her decision to file was solely over Brad’s interaction with their children.
Jolie, who’s being repped by disso queen Laura Wasser, is not asking for spousal support.
Jolie lists the date of separation as Sept. 15, 2016.
They married in August, 2014. They’ve been together since 2004. (credit)
My jaw hit the floor when I read that Brad and Angelina were divorcing. I mean, I am team Jennifer so I was always salty towards them but damn. I never thought that I would see the day. They have both always seemed so in love, they had matching tattoos, and seven children. They seemed like they were going to make it!
It’s interesting that Angelina decided to file because of Brad’s interaction with their children. What does that even mean? I want to know!
Of course they ask for privacy and I want to say that I will respect that, but I know I wont. I am sorry, I just can’t.
I like to think that Jennifer doesn’t care but she is definitely smirking as she reads her smartphone right now.
Still though, what does how Brad interacts with their children mean? It sounds really harsh.
