Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s Divorce
Unfortunately, after 12 years together, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s divorce was announced when she filed on September 19, 2016. The news came as a shock to their fans, friends, and colleagues. Jolie additionally applied for physical custody of their six children.
According to TMZ, a source close to the couple said Jolie filed for divorce because she did not approve of the way “Brad was parenting the children,” and that “she was extremely upset with his methods.” The source also claimed that Jolie was sick and tired of Pitt’s consumption of “weed and possibly alcohol” combined with his “anger problem.” However, a different source close the couple told TMZ that report was false. Whatever Jolie’s reason was for filing for divorce, the couple has the right to deal with their relationship privately and with respect.
They are currently working privately to find the best way to move forward and figure out how to resolve the issue of the custody of their six children. People reported in October 2016, that L.A. family law attorney AtousaSaei said, “It is extremely difficult to be granted sole custody in a California court, absent some egregious behaviour that directly impacts the best interest of the minor children.” He added, “In my experience, courts [and judges] lean more towards joint physical custody over sole physical custody. They want to see both parents involved in the children’s lives and want both parents to have frequent and continuing contact with the children.” For Jolie to have full custody of the children, there must be considerable evidence that the other parent is incapable of caring for the children.”Saei also told People, “If Angelina can prove to the court that she is the parent that has historically been the caretaker of the children and that allowing Brad to share the children with Angelina on an equal basis would actually not be in the best interest of the children, she will have a good shot at being awarded physical custody of the children.”
