Hollywood stars Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are on the verge of ending their 12-year-old marriage. Jolie is reported to have filed the divorce papers from husband, Pitt. In the papers, Jolie listed the separation date to be 15 September, last Thursday. TMZ claims that the Maleficent actress has asked for custody of their six children. Jolie’s lawyer, Laura Wasser, who also represented Johnny Depp’s ex-wife, Amber Heard, said her client is not asking for any support from the divorce.
The crack was suspected when the couple was not spotted in public together in months with their last photograph coming in November, 2015, while they had been promoting their movie, By the Sea. The movie, itself, has been about an unhappily married couple.
The divorce is Jolie’s third after she split from ex-husbands Johnny Lee Miller and Billy Bob Thornton while Pitt had been previously married to actress Jennifer Aniston before their union collapsed after news of an affair with Jolie surfaced.
