One of the most loved and celebrated Hollywood couple, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, are headed for divorce after being together for over 10 years.
A legal representative for the actress confirmed she has filed papers to dissolve the marriage.”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,” attorney Robert Offer said in a statement
It is reported that Jolie hired a private detective and found out that Pitt was cheating on her with his co-star Marion Cotillard. Reports
said,”She hired a private eye because she felt that he was fooling around with her on the set, and it turns out, he was. And that was the final straw.”
Further, sources said that they have fundamental differences- Angelina wants to dedicate her life to humanitarian work, while Pitt prefers Hollywood.
“The older she gets, the more serious she becomes, and she is sick of the Hollywood thing. He wants to make movies. She doesn’t. It’s a fundamental difference. It’s how you live your life,” said a source.

He would get visitation, according to her filing. The couple have been together since 2004 and got married privately in the French hamlet of Correns in Provence in 2014. They have six children together-Maddox, Pax, Zahara, who are adopted, and biological children Shiloh and twins Knox and Vivienne. The court documents list the couple’s date of separation as Sept. 15, 2016.
