Angelina Jolie has reportedly filed for divorce to end her two-year marriage to Brad Pitt.

The actress filed legal documents on Monday (19Sep16), citing irreconcilable differences, according to TMZ.

She's asking for physical custody of the couple's six children.

Jolie, who lists the date of separation as 15 September (16), has hired top divorce lawyer Laura Wasser to represent her.

She is not asking for spousal support, according to the documents obtained by TMZ, and she has asked the judge to give Pitt visitation.

Reports suggest there was no third party involved in the marriage breakdown.

The couple met on the set of 2005 action film Mr. & Mrs. Smith when Pitt was still married to Jennifer Aniston. They have been together since 2005 but did not marry until 2014, when they tied the knot in a lavish ceremony at Chateau Miraval in the south of France.

In recent years the demands of their Hollywood careers and Angelina’s extensive humanitarian work have meant they have spent long periods on separate sides of the globe.

However last year (15) they teamed up to make By the Sea, a movie following an unhappily married couple. Their last official appearance together came at the premiere of the film last November (15).

Their last reported appearance together in public was at a restaurant in West Hollywood in July (16) for a family breakfast in celebration of twins Knox and Vivienne’s eighth birthday.

Neither Jolie, Pitt, nor their representatives have commented on the split story.
