Today the world discovered that the unthinkable has happened – Angelina and Brad are set to divorce after two years of marriage. The couple has been together for twelve years, and has six children. Apparently, Angelina is divorcing Brad on the grounds of irreconcilable differences. However, this hasn’t stopped newspaper sources and theorists alike concocting a plethora of other possible reasons for going their separate ways.
According to sources, Angelina’s lawyer is Laura Wasser – the same lawyer employed by Johnny Depp upon his divorce from Amber Heard. Angelina is requesting full physical custody of their six children, but is not asking for spousal support.
If you (like us) are scratching your heads in confused bewilderment, it’s not about to get any easier to understand. TMZ was this morning, advised by Angelina’s divorce lawyer, that ‘irreconcilable differences’ were the main reason. However, TMZ stated that the divorce is ‘solely over Brad’s interaction with their children,’ and that she was ‘extremely upset with his methods.’ We did say you might be confused.
Meanwhile, as you can imagine, tonnes of other theories are floating around. Speculation rises surrounding the nature of Brad’s relationship with ‘Allied’ co-star, Marion Cotillard. These assumptions are to be expected, given the circumstances surrounding Brad’s divorce to Jen. TMZ has stated that there was no third person involved.
Other theories suggest explosive fights over money (?), Brad’s apparent boredom, and of course, a mid-life crisis.
July was the last occasion Brad and Angelina was spotted in public together, during a Hollywood birthday breakfast with their twins, Knox and Vivienne.
This will mark Angelina’s third divorce. According to the DailyMail.com, Brad said: ‘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.’
