After 12 years of being together, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are now in the course of finalizing their divorce. Angelina has filed for divorce after their 2-year wedding anniversary. She cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for their split. Included in the divorce papers is an appeal to have sole physical custody of their six children (three of whom are adopted) with visitation rights for Brad. Legal custody will still be shared by the two.
Some sources say, the news has wrecked the Hollywood actor, “I am very saddened by this, but what matters most now is the well-being of our kids. I kindly ask the press to give them the space they deserve during this challenging time.”
Angelina also released a statement through her attorney, “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.”
But what could have been the reason for the divorce of this seemingly perfect couple?
It was confirmed by the LA County Department of Children and Family Services that Pitt is under investigation for child abuse after he allegedly abused physically and verbally their eldest child, Maddox, 15 years old.
Although Pitt is cooperating with the investigation, he claims that he did not commit any abuse of his children.
While, their union is now coming to an end and people have been greatly affected by this sad news, it doesn’t change the fact that there were many wonderful things that happened to the couple that gave us some fabulous moments. (Editor Note: I think Jennifer Aniston would disagree about the wonderful moments they gave us)
Here are some:
“Brad and I love being together. We enjoy it. We need it, and we always find that special time. We stay connected. We talk about it. It’s very important. If Brad and I are strong and happy, then our kids have happy parents, and that’s the best thing we can give them. There’s never a period when Brad and I are pulled apart. We are not separated for more than three days, ever. We stay really connected. We actually don’t go out much. It’s funny. We’re very homebound. We’re very much Mommy and Daddy in our pajamas.”
