After news broke that Angelina Jolie had filed for divorce from Brad Pitt on Monday – citing irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split, and requesting sole physical custody of their six children – various reports have come out claiming what really went down.

And it’s quickly turning into a nasty case of he said, she said…

On filing the divorce papers, Ange’s rep told Us Weekly: “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.”

A source had also previously told Us that the couple often fought over their different parenting styles. “[Angelina] did try to make it work, but her kids come first and she couldn’t let them see Mommy and Daddy like this. The fighting got worse and they disagreed a lot about parenting and a lot of things.”

What we know so far about Brangelina’s divorce…

Brad was thought to have been blindsided by the divorce, only finding out hours before the papers were filed. TMZ claims that he pleaded with Ange to handle it “like adults” for the benefit of their kids, Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 8.

Instead, he is now said to be “furious” that she has asked for sole physical custody of the kids, amid claims that she believes he poses a risk to them because of his alleged anger issues that are fuelled by weed and alcohol.

Sources close to Brad say it’s all “a malicious lie”, adding: “He’s a loving and devoted father who has never and would never put his children in any dangerous situation.”

Meanwhile, it was claimed that Angelina decided to split from Brad after an “incident” which happened a week ago.

An insider said: “The final divorce decision was only made one week ago. An incident took place and prompted Angelina to act and file.”

However, it’s no secret that the pair’s relationship was on the rocks for months.

A pal said: “I could say the divorce announcement is a shock, but it’s not. This divorce deal has been brewing for a long time.”
