Angelina Jolie has filed for divorce from Brad Pitt, according to a Tuesday report from TMZ.
Jolie cited “irreconcilable differences” in her divorce filing on Monday, according to legal documents obtained by TMZ.
The actress is asking for sole physical custody of their six children, and is reportedly requesting that a judge grant Pitt visitation rights as opposed to joint custody.
Robert Offer, an attorney for the family, said Jolie’s decision was made “for the health of the family,” according to an Associated Press report.
The couple met in 2004 while filming “Mr. and Mrs. Smith,” and they were married in 2014.
According to TMZ, Jolie listed the couple’s date of separation as September 15, 2016, and the actress will be represented by divorce attorney Laura Wasser.
“I am very saddened by this, but what matters most now is the well being of our kids,” Pitt said in a statement to People. “I kindly ask the press to give them the space they deserve during this challenging time.”
Multiple news outlets including The Associated Press have confirmed the news of Jolie’s divorce from Pitt. Business Insider has also reached out to both Jolie and Pitt for comment.
