In a statement, Robert Offer said she filed for “dissolution of marriage” on Monday, stating that the “decision was made for the health of the family”. He added that she will not be commenting and requested privacy for the family.

The couple have been together since 2004 but only married in August 2014.

Ms Jolie’s longtime manager Geyser Kosinski told E! Online: “Angelina will always do what’s in the best interest of taking care of her family.”


According to US entertainment website TMZ, the divorce papers listed the date of separation as 15 September.

Jolie is seeking physical custody of their six children while requesting visitation rights for Pitt. The couple shares six children: adopted children Maddox, Pax, and Zahara, as well as biological children Shiloh and twins Knox and Vivienne.

Pitt, 52, and Jolie, 41, married privately in the French hamlet of Correns in Provence in 2014.

Their children served as ring bearers at the wedding and helped illustrate Jolie’s white dress with their drawings.

Marriage ‘issues’


In 2013, she announced she had undergone a double mastectomy to reduce her chances of getting breast cancer.

She wrote about the experience for the New York Times, saying that she made the choice after her doctor said she was highly at risk of developing breast cancer

“Once I knew that this was my reality, I decided to be proactive and to minimise the risk as much I could,” she said.

Two years later, she had her ovaries and fallopian tubes removed as a preventative measure against cancer.

Last year, ahead of the release of By The Sea, the romantic drama the couple both star in, Jolie told The Telegraph: “Brad and I have our issues.

“We have fights and problems like any other couple. We have days when we drive each other absolutely mad and want space, but the problems in the movie aren’t our specific problems.”

Lawyer Laura Wasser, whose previous clients include Johnny Depp, Kim Kardashian, Stevie Wonder, and Britney Spears, will reportedly represent Jolie.
