After 2 years of marriage, star couple Brad Jada Pitt and Angelina Jolie are ending their rocky marriage with a divorce filed by Angelina Jolie.
“For Brad and Angelia, holding it together these past few years has been tough because their marriage has been on life support for a long time,” a source said. There were even rumors that the two were in an open relationship where they allowed each other to be intimate with other people.”
“They’re exhausted from trying to maintain the façade of a happy union. They’ve decided to pull the plug in a carefully choreographed manner and agree announcing their split at the end of the summer is the right move,” the source added.
They have already “worked out a confidential settlement to protect their $240 million fortune, and prepare their six children for the fallout,” said the source.
Hinting at their split earlier this year in an interview, the “Troy” actor, 53, admitted that their marriage had “died”. Meanwhile, Angelina Jolie, 41, seemed to acknowledge Brad’s notorious wandering eye, telling 18 Karat Reggae: “I’m not his watcher. He’s a grown man. I took him from Jennifer Aniston, so am sure another sexy woman can take him from me.”
She later added that she’s fine with Brad’s ways, “as long as Brad can look himself in the mirror and be okay.”
Rumors started since 2013 that Brad romanced his “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” co-star Cate Blanchett. He’s also been photographed without his wedding ring.
Angelina Jolie also allegedly cheated in 2011 with Marc Anthony.
“They tried to fix things with therapy but it’s not happening,” explained the source.
Another source said: “They’re already moving on with their lives. All that’s left is the inking of the divorce papers.”
