As previously reported, Us Weekly confirmed that Jolie Pitt, 41, filed for divorce from Pitt, 52, after two years of marriage and is seeking physical custody of their six children — Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 8. She made the decision to pull the plug just one week ago.

“An incident took place and prompted [Angelina] to act and file,” an insider exclusively told Us. “She still says Brad is the love of her life, and the decision has weighed heavy on her heart. Her priority now is the children.”

A second source added: “This has been coming for some time. This is a very difficult period for the family.” Relive the timeline of Jolie and Pitt’s romance in the video below.

The news is upsetting for some stars, too. “Brad and Angelina. How am I supposed to go to work today?” Chrissy Teigen tweeted on Tuesday, September 20.

“WTF? Brad and Angelina?!” Alyssa Milano shared. “I’m crushed.”
