Angelina Jolie Files For Divorce From Brad Pitt over Anger, Substance Abuse?

Posted by Ria, 20 Sep

Just a month after the couple celebrated their second anniversary in August, Angelina Jolie files for divorce from Brad Pitt on Monday, citing irreconcilable differences. Famously dubbed Mr and Mrs Smith, the couple had been together long before their engagement in 2012 and subsequent wedding in 2014 - total of 16 years. Much as most of the time they spent this year has been apart from each other, the news still came as a shock!

According to reports by TMZ, Pitt, 52, had a substance abuse and anger problem. Apparently, Jolie, 41, got fed up with the excessive weed and alcohol which possibly triggered his anger issues. She felt it was becoming dangerous for their children.

They have also been conflicting over disciplining their six children. As the source explained: "Brad has always been stricter. He has wanted the kids to have more structure. Brad will get frustrated sometimes and yell at the kids. Angelina always had a more relaxed attitude when it came to the kids. She definitely never yells."

Jolie wants to have custody of their six children requesting that the judge gives Pitt visitation.

In a statement to People, Pitt commented: "I am very saddened by this, but what matters most now is the well-being of our kids. I kindly ask the press to give them the space they deserve during this challenging time."

According to the court documents, the couple separated on September 15. And much as there have been speculations about a third party's involvement in the decision, through her lawyer, Jolie said it "was made for the health of the family".

This celebrity couple was the envy of most. Brangelina will sure be missed.
