Is it possible that Mr. And Mrs. Smith are no more? Angelina Jolie has filed for divorce from Brad Pitt this past Monday.
That's right, one of the highest profile Hollywood marriages is over, TMZ reports. The actress filed legal documents on Monday citing irreconcilable differences, with the terms including Pitt not being allowed physical custody of the couple's children. Jolie, 41, has requested that Pitt, 52, not have joint physical custody — only joint legal custody. A source close to the couple told TMZ that "Angelina's decision to file has to do with the way Brad was parenting the children — she was extremely upset with his methods."
Her lawyer also submitted a statement on the divorce filing to the AP, saying, "Angelina has filed for dissolution of the marriage. This decision was made for the health of the family. She will not be commenting, and asks that the family be given its privacy at this time."
Pitt publicly commented for the first time on his divorce from Angelina Jolie in a statement to People, saying: "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."
Meanwhile, Page Six is reporting some very interesting information about the split, citing an unnamed source for the juicy details on Pitt and Jolie's relationship. "He's in the throes of some insane midlife crisis, and Angie is fed up,'' the source said. "She hired a private eye because she felt that he was fooling around with her on the set, and it turns out, he was. And that was the final straw."
Relationship rumors have been swirling around Pitt and his Allied co-star Marion Cotillard, 40, for months during the actors' filming of the WW II drama in London. And, reportedly, Jolie had had enough.
"The older she gets, the more serious she becomes, and she is sick of the Hollywood thing,'' a second source told Page Six. "He wants to make movies. She doesn't. It's a fundamental difference. It's how you live your life.''
The filing happened on September 15 — just a month after the couple celebrated their two-year wedding anniversary (after becoming public as a couple 10 years earlier in 2004), so it is very surprising. The mother and father of six spent the night at the Beverly Hills Hotel to celebrate the occasion.

The couple got legally married in California before their vow exchange in France, which was an intimate celebration that included all of their six children, who had helped write their marital vows (and walk their mama down the aisle!). The bride wore a Luigi Massi for Versace wedding dress, which was a gorgeous composition of white silk-satin material with adorable drawings created by their kids sewn on to the train and veil. For jewelry, the actress wore a locket that belonged to her mother, and the rings were designed by Pitt's friend Robert Procop. Of course, she donned her 16-carat emerald-cut engagement ring at the ceremony, which took place at the couple's French chateau. This was her third marriage and his second.
While we wait to hear more about the details unfolding in this developing story, we can only hope that all is well in the Jolie-Pitt household.
