Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt in a Los Angeles court Monday citing irreconcilable differences, TMZ reports. The couple has been married for two years.

Jolie is asking for physical custody of their six children — with visitation allowed for Pitt. She does not want Pitt to have physical custody, just legal custody. (REPORT: Angelina Jolie And Brad Pitt Are Getting Divorced Because He Was Cheating On Her)
