The Brangelina Break-Up
Shock waves were sent into Hollywood when Angelina Jolie filed for divorce stating “irreconcilable differences” (Second time the term has been used in this story, refer to the first one!) The actress wanted to have sole custody of the children but was ready to give her ex-husband visiting rights.
Both the actors maintained their stand of separating but wishing to keep the health of the family intact. An agreement on the joint custody was reached where Jolie got sole custody but Brad also had visitation rights. However, a therapist will monitor his visit.
There was an ongoing investigation on Brad Pitt about putting son Maddox through verbal and physical abuse during a plane ride. Last year, the law enforcement sources concluded the investigation stating that no such incident had occurred. No charges were filed in this case against the actor.
The couple mutually agreed to keep all the court documents confidential. The actress made a statement recently spoke to BBC World News, “I don’t want to say very much about that, except to say it was a very difficult time and… and we are a family and we will always be a family, and we will get through this time and hopefully be a stronger family for it.”
