Angelina Jolie files for divorce from Brad Pitt over ‘drug abuse’

Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie has filed for divorce from actor and husband Brad Pitt, to end their marriage of two years.

According to TMZ, Jolie filed the legal documents on Monday citing irreconcilable differences, including Pitts parenting method.

“Our sources say, Angelina became ‘fed up’ with Brad’s consumption of weed and possibly alcohol, and mixed with what she believes is ‘an anger problem’ … felt it became dangerous for the children,” reports TMZ.


Angelina and Brad, who have been termed as the power couple of Hollywood, married in August, 2014 and have been together since 2004.

Over the course of their relationship, Pitt adopted Jolie’s children — Maddox, Zaharah and Pax .

In 2006, they welcomed their first biological daughter, Shiloh, in 2006. Jolie then welcomed twins in 2008.

She is asking for full custody of the couple’s 6 children. However she is asking the judge to give Pitt visitation. She does not want Brad to have joint physical custody, only joint legal custody.

Branjelina’s romance was first sparked on the set of 2005’s Mr. And Mrs. Smith, at which time Pitt was still married to Jennifer Aniston.

They later divorced, and Pitt embarked on a full-on relationship with Jolie.
