First Justin Bieber and Sofia Richie and now Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie – it’s not a good month for celebrity couples, we guess (as we say with a twinge of sarcasm).
Both Brad and Angelina looked like their relationship ran its course years ago, but like a lot of couples seem to do, they held on for the sake of their six children (they’ve been together since 2004, but married since 2014). Every time a picture surfaced of the two, it looked like they were just going through the motions. So, why is everyone shocked? Well, we guess a lot of people believe in fairytales, but, unfortunately, this is the real world, and in the real world, relationships often times fizzle after a while.
So, here is the skinny on what reportedly happened to lead to the divorce:
Angelina Jolie has filed for divorce from Brad Pitt and the trigger was a conflict over the kids, substance abuse and anger … 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.
Our sources say, Angelina became “fed up” with Brad’s consumption of weed and possibly alcohol, and mixed with what she believes is “an anger problem” … felt it became dangerous for the children.
Indeed, Angelina’s entertainment attorney Robert Offer says she made the decision “for the health of the family.”
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.

We’d love to have been a fly on the wall in that household. Oh, and Jennifer Aniston has likely been over Brad Pitt for a long time, after all, they did end a decade ago.
This is probably the .gif that Jennifer Aniston is dedicating to ol’ Angie right about now (but Jennifer seems like a stand-up type of woman, so she might just sympathize with the whole situation).
Either way, karma comes for everyone eventually (Angelina reportedly ‘stole’ Brad from Jennifer).
