On Tuesday afternoon, it was learnt that the couple whom everyone thought were in the ultimate Hollywood relationship had ended their marriage following a split and subsequent filing of divorce by wife Angelina Jolie. The dissolution was said to have emerged from clashes over raising of their children.
Brad Pitt said he was left devastated by the development when speaking to newsmen about his crashed marriage.
“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.”
A spokesman for Jolie told reporters that the 3-time married mother of 6 children (4 for Mr. Pitt) has taken her decision:
“This decision was made for the health of the family.
“She will not be commenting at this time, and asks that the family be given their privacy during this difficult time.”
