These are the court papers that confirm the end of one of Hollywood’s most high profile romances. Angelina Jolie today announced that she would be divorcing husband Brad Pitt after a two year marriage, and an eleven year relationship.
But as revealed in the documents, Angelina filed for divorce from Brad due to ‘irreconcilable differences’ between the pair – and is seeking sole custody of their children, with visitation rights for her Hollywood husband.

It has also been confirmed that Angelina has hired the services of renowned celebrity divorce lawyer Laura Wesser – who previously oversaw the separation of Johnny Depp and Amber Heard earlier this year.
The real reason behind the couple’s split is yet to emerge – but Angelina said it was for the ‘health of the family’ in a statement released earlier today. Brad said: ‘I am very saddened by this, but what matters most now is the well-being of our kids.
‘I kindly ask the press to give them the space they deserve during this challenging time.’
