Everything We Know About The Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt Divorce

Published

on

When Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie got together twelve years ago, many of their ardent fans thought it was a match made in Hollywood heaven. Brad and Angelina even got their own nickname: Brangelina. The public was blown away by this perfect pairing.

But as fate would have it, there would not be a happily ever after for this romance story. Two years after tying the knot and six kids later, Brangelina is no more. But what exactly happened to this beautiful couple? What could have prompted Jolie to file for divorce on 15th September, 2016? Let’s explore a few potential reasons.

Brad’s cheating

Rumor mills have been spinning about this for a while now.

Sources privy to the couple say that Brad Pitt was indeed having an affair with Marion Cotillard with whom he stars with in Allied. Cotillard herself denies those rumors saying she is happy with her partner. So could Brad’s philandering ways be responsible for the divorce. We can’t say for sure but it wouldn’t be farfetched considering how the couple got together in the first place.

Brad’s a bad parent

We know that children are very important to Jolie.

Indeed, she adopted their eldest son Maddox all on her own before Brad came into the picture. Could Brad’s poor parenting have caused strife in the Jolie-Pitt household? This is probably true. Rumor has it that Pitt got into a fight with his eldest fifteen-year-old son midair in a plane heading to Minnesota. Some quarters also report that the confrontation got physical and the FBI are currently doing an investigation. Could this have ticked Jolie off? Our guess is probably yes.

Brad’s an addict

Another probable reason is Brad’s love of booze.

Some reports indicate that he is also a pot user. Even though Pitt has claimed in interviews that he put his drug use on hold when he became a dad, that report is questionable. In the mid-air altercation with Maddox, his eldest son, sources privy to the family suggests that Pitt was drunk. In an interview in Vanity Fair, Pitt reveals that Jolie doesn’t like it when he smokes. Is his drug use a reason for filing the divorce? Maybe Jolie finally got fed up.

What we know

• Brad and Angelina’s divorce documents cite irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split. While this leaves fans with more questions than answers, it prevents a lot of meddling into the proceedings.
• Jolie is not seeking alimony. She has a personal net worth of almost $200 million. This we presume would be enough to cater to her needs for quite some time. And if she continues churning out great movies, she won’t need spousal support from Brad.
• She wants full custody of their six children. If she gets her way, Brad will only be granted visitation rights.
• They will only split assets gained jointly during the last two years. Despite being together, the two have been only legally married for two years. Any income obtained after separation is deemed hers only. Also included in her separate assets are jewelry obtained before marriage and after separation.
Whatever the reason for the divorce, one thing that we know for sure is that millions of fans will miss seeing Brangelina gracing red carpets together.
