In a September 20 statement, Angelina Jolie confirmed that she is divorcing Brad Pitt “for the health of the family.” The actress and political activist, 41, was married to Pitt, 52, for two years.

“This has been coming for some time,” a source close to Jolie says. “This is a very difficult period for the family. [Angie] feels like a weight has been lifted.”

Jolie and Pitt allegedly began dating in 2005, while he was still married to Jennifer Aniston. They share six children together: Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 8. Jolie has requested physical custody, with visitation rights for Pitt.
