SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — Angelina Jolie has filed for divorce from Brad Pitt after two years of marriage.
Jolie filed the legal documents Monday citing irreconcilable difference. The trigger was a conflict over the six children they have together.
The 41-year-old is asking for physical custody of the children and for 52-year-old Pitt to get visitation and legal custody, but not physical custody.
Sources say that Jolie had a problem with how Brad was parenting their children. However, Jolie’s attorney Robert Offer only states that the decision to divorce was made “for the health of the family.”
Though together for 12 years, Pitt and Jolie Pitt only wed in August 2014. They married privately in the French hamlet of Correns in Provence with their children serving as ring bearers and throwing flower petals. They announced the ceremony days later.
