Hollywood power couple calling it quits; Angelina Jolie files for divorce from husband Brad Pitt
One of Hollywood’s highest profile marriages is over.
Angelina Jolie has filed for divorce from husband Brad Pitt, a source familiar with the filing confirmed to CNN.
Pitt and Jolie got married in 2014 but their relationship became the subject of speculation in 2004, when they co-starred in “Mr. & Mrs. Smith.” At the time, Pitt was married to actress Jennifer Aniston.
In January 2005, Pitt and Aniston announced they were splitting and Aniston filed for divorce a few months later.
In April 2004, photos surfaced of Pitt, Jolie and her adopted son Maddox in Kenya.
Jolie later adopted daughter Zahara from Ethiopia and in early 2006 she announced that she and Pitt were expecting a baby. Shortly thereafter, Pitt was granted the right to legally adopt Maddox and Zahara.
Their daughter Shiloh was born in May 2006 and son Pax was adopted from Vietnam in March 2007. Jolie gave birth to twins Vivienne and Knox in July 2008.
The couple announced their engagement in 2012.
In 2014 the parents of six children were married in a small, private ceremony in a chapel at Château Miraval in the village of Correns.
