Oscar-winning actress who became popular after playing lead role in movies such as Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Salt, Wanted, as well as Maleficent, Angelina Jolie has filed for divorce from husband, Brad Pitt.
The trigger was a conflict over the children, drug abuse and anger, TMZ reveal.
Jolie filed legal docs Monday citing irreconcilable differences.
She’s soliciting for physical custody of the couple’s 6 children. She is asking the judge to offer Pitt visitation. It’s important … she doesn’t want Brad to own joint physical custody … only joint legal custody.
Sources connected with the couple tell us … Angelina’s call to file has got to do with the manner Brad was parenting the kids … she was very upset with his ways.
Our sources say, Angelina became “fed up” with Brad’s consumption of weed and probably alcohol, and mixed with what she believes is “an anger problem” … felt it became dangerous for the kids.
Indeed, Angelina’s entertainment lawyer Robert offer says she made the choice “for the health of the family.”
We’re told there was no alleged “third person” … her decision to file was entirely over Brad’s interaction with their kids.
Jolie, who’s being repped by disso queen Laura Wasser, is not demanding spousal support.
Jolie lists the date of separation as Sept. 15, 2016.
They married in August 2014 and have been together since 2004.
The last time we saw them together was in July when they took the twins, Vivienne and Knox, out for a birthday breakfast in West Hollywood.
