Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt Divorce Confirmed By Lawyer

Angelina Jolie‘s lawyer has confirmed that she filed for divorce from Brad Pitt, her partner of 12 years and husband of 2 years.

“This decision was made for the health of the family. She will not be commenting, and asks that the family be given its privacy at this time,” Robert Offer told Reuters.

It was reported earlier in the day that Angelina filed for divorce on Monday (September 19), following “irreconcilable differences.” There have been allegations that the split came as a result of the way Brad was parenting the kids.

Angelina and Brad were last seen out together back in July, for their twins birthday celebration. They were also seen making a rare appearance together on July 4.

We’ve reached out to rep for comment.

    Aww, poor Angie!

    It must be so hard for her, what with losing a man the same way she got him.

  • Elizabeth Darcy

    Hahaha!

  • Diss Infectant

    Read between the lines. I think Brad has a substance abuse problem and Angelina wasn’t having it, especially now that her kids are older and able to process and try to emulate.

    I expect to see Brad enter some kind of treatment center or admit to something along those lines. Otherwise it makes no sense. Just the way it was done.

  • londongirl75

    She is already throwing him to the dogs and managing her image – HE is the bad parent, HE is a marijuana user and many more rumours to come. All unconfirmed rumours swirling around by who I wonder. She has done this before with other people she wanted out of the picture.

  • Cheyenne

    The fact that Angie is not asking for a dime on alimony or child support suggests to me that she wanted out fast. Who the hell knows what happened but it’s bad for the kids.

  • londongirl75

    She has already won her battle when people adopt rumours as facts.

  • Diss Infectant

    I don’t think she would anyway.

    I think their kids already have their own trusts, and she wouldn’t need ‘support, ‘ in that way from him anyway.

  • Diss Infectant

    Maybe it’s because it’s true and the way things are.

    When Brad admits his failings or a substance abuse problem, I won’t hold my breath waiting for your apology to Angelina. Lol

  • Diss Infectant

    I’m sure she doesn’t think of the dissolution of her marriage as a ‘battle’ to be won- but whatever fantasy evil characterization you Jen loons want to create…knock yourself out.

  • lurker

    Sad day for us fans,wishing them best of luck

  • lurker

    Idiot

  • Diss Infectant

    Why are comments disappearing? There were 10 now 2? Lol

  • MissyMiss

    because she’s beeyotch.

  • MissyMiss

    *vomits

  • Cheyenne

    She doesn’t need it, but the fact that she’s not asking for it tells me a lot. When a woman files for divorce without any financial strings attached, it usually means she just wants him the hell gone. I can’t begin to imagine what happened in this case.

  • Crank Tango

    Good one!

  • African Girl

    This is truly shocking.

  • I am Evelyn Salt

    I’m so sad. I can’t deal. I love them together. I was really hoping they would last. But, I knew something was wrong because we haven’t seen them together for a long time.

  • VanityInsecurity

    make sure you do that in your mouth where it belongs.

  • Pimpcessa

    Lol, where’s all the loons? Let’s see what the “fan-fic” lunatics come up with now…..

  • MollyBD

    Oh, this is going to get dirtier than the Amber Heard and Johnny Depp fiasco. If she is calling him a bad parent, imagine the dirt he will sling at her.

  • Pimpcessa

    She told him Heroin was the only drug allowed. As long as you throw away the needles, the kids don’t find out, lol. They can’t smell the juice, but they can smell the weed..

  • lurker

    yep its a rough year

  • MissyMiss

    on your shoes.

  • Cezar

    what are you doing here if you like Anuston?
    Angelina was a Goddess before Brad, and she is and always will be a Goddess…. Queen Angie forever. My love for Angie is “Platonic” so i will love Angie forever with Brad, without Brad or with other person. I love Angie and everything she does is well done. I´m sad because i thought Brad was making the right things and was the gentleman Angie needs and was the man to protect her and grow old with her because he are in love with her but if they really divorced i will always be with Angie.

  • bap

    Amen to that!

  • Cheyenne

    Wait and see if he contests for custody. If he doesn’t, then either he doesn’t want the responsibility for the kids, or he knows he has no case. Neither looks good.

  • Cheyenne

    If she’s happy about this, it should serve as a warning to Justin, who never seems to be around much anyway.

  • Miss Plum

    So sad to hear, I thought for sure they’d always be together. Hopefully they will stay united for their kids. Very sad.

  • Liverwurst

    Honey someone should have told you “IF HE’S GOING TO CHEAT WITH YOU, HE’S GOING TO CHEAT ON YOU.”

  • siennagold

    They were better off just living together.

  • Liverwurst

    Brad more than likely told Jen himself long before this became public. It looks like Jen and Jason are still very happy in their marriage anyway.

  • Liverwurst

    Pfft! Please! His drinking or smoking pot is pale in comparison to her herion addiction. And if Brad were to be a “bad parent” why did she keep breeding with him? No, this is her camp slinging mud to diffuse the attention away from a 3x loser. After 3 divorces one must consider it might be her?

  • londongirl75

    Agreed.

  • londongirl75

    Queen Angie is skin and bones nowadays….

  • Mik Naishadriak

    I hope they work it out.

  • londongirl75

    Actually, I think it is. I remember reading a few years back a comment on E!Online from one of their gossip guys that when they eventually split it would be because SHE will give him the boot, it will be when she has laid all the groundwork for it and under her term. He will not contest any of it and probably look bad in the end while she will come out shinning. And it looks like he was right after all…

    Brad Pitt thinks drinking beer made him a neglectful dad. The ‘Ocean’s Thirteen’ star decided to massively cut down his alcohol intake after seeing his adopted daughter Zahara, two, choke on an ice cube.
    He said: “It’s not easy to be a good father when you’ve had a few drinks.”
    “About a year ago I’d had a couple of beers and my daughter Zahara had this piece of ice that had been dropped on the floor, and she was putting it in her mouth and began to choke on it, and that was it.”
    Pitt added: “You have to be absolutely on top of every situation. The other s**t doesn’t work anymore. When they wake up in the middle of the night you have to be there. And you can’t deal with children when you have a hangover – that’s just a misery!”
    Brad and his long-term partner Angelina Jolie have three adopted children, six-year-old Maddox, three-year-old Pax, and two year-old Zahara, as well as a 16-month-old biological daughter, Shiloh.
    The 43-year-old actor insists his kids find it difficult to cope with having famous parents.
    He explained to Total Film magazine: “It’s odd for my children, man. They have this idea that there’s this sea of people with cameras. This is their idea of the world they live in.”

    Angie have to be really upset to ask for divorce. I still don´t get why they split but it was not because someone cheated. it was not because a 3º person it was about PARENTING. Pretty serious issue.
    I just realize that Angelina filled the divorce and want the custody of all kids but don´t want to give joint custody to Brad, she want to give Brad only Visitation custody … Wow,,,, it´s sad and serious.

    Something really bad was happening with Brad style/form/norms of education that Angie was not liking. It´s clear that Angie was always a more relaxed, soft and friendly mom and Brad was more formal, more disciplinary and more hard with them than Angie.

    Maybe now that the kids are entering in the adolescence and doing more crazy and individual things that Brad started to be more tough with them… but it have to be something prolonged in time and something serious must have happened that made Angie ask for only “visitation custody”.

    I don´t like this request …. smell a very ugly argument involving the kids. Hope the time would resolve this things. Angie must felt the need to ask for this if not it would be a Joint custody .

    I´m more saddened now, Angie deserved to be supported and loved and i hoped Brad would be her MAN until the end but…

  • Cheyenne

    They seem to be fine with each other as long as they are 3,000 miles apart.
