Did anyone see this one coming? Hollywood superstar Angelina Jolie as filed for divorce from Brad Pitt and the trigger was an alleged conflict over the kids, substance abuse and anger. Jolie filed legal docs Monday citing irreconcilable differences.
Ms. Jolie is seeking physical custody of the couple's 6 children. She is asking the judge to give Pitt visitation. Mr. Pitt will likely seek joint custody of the children.
Sources connected with the couple tell us ... Angelina's decision to file has to do with the way Brad was parenting the children ... she was extremely upset with his methods.
Ms. Jolie's entertainment attorney Robert Offer says she made the decision "for the health of the family." The allegation is that Mr. Pitt has been abusing marijuana and alcohol and it has impaired his parenting abilities.
Jolie, who's being repped by Attorney Laura Wasser, is not asking for spousal support. Jolie lists the date of separation as Sept. 15, 2016. They married in August 2014. They've been together since 2004.
We imagine there is an airtight prenuptial agreement to resolve all the financial issues between the parties and that the real issues will come down to custody of those 6 children.
