Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie Divorce: 10 Shocking Revelations
It’s only been two days since Angelina Jolie suddenly filed for divorce from Brad Pitt and we’re already hearing a lot about how this breakup was a long time coming and that the people close to them knew that they were having problems. Given the way that Jolie has been handling the divorce, we’re thinking that this is going to get pretty messy and it’s already starting, which is why we have 10 of the most shocking revelations from their split:
10. Brad Was Blindsided
According to Us Weekly, Brad Pitt found out about the divorce filing one day before the story broke on TMZ. A source claimed that Pitt, Angelina Jolie and their six children had plans to fly to London together this Friday, but the trip was cancelled on Monday, the same day that Jolie filed. She listed the date of separation as September 15th, which means she was planning this for several days before she finally filed for divorce.
Sources close to Jolie, however, claim that she didn’t just spring the divorce announcement on Pitt. “She sat down, talked to Brad and offered to file [for divorce] together. She said, ‘This is what I’d like to do.’ She explained everything. Angelina did what she felt she needed to do.”
9. She Wants Custody of Their Kids
When Angelina Jolie filed for divorce, she asked for sole physical custody of her and Brad’s six children and asked for the judge to give him visitation rights. Celebrity divorce attorney Laura Wasser, who represented Johnny Depp earlier this year in his divorce from Amber Heard, is representing her. Jolie did not ask for spousal support in her filing.
