Her lawyer has just confirmed it : Angelina filed for divorce from Brad Pitt.

Robert Offer said the actress filed for "dissolution of marriage" on Monday, adding the "decision was made for the health of the family".

"She will not be commenting, and asks that the family be given its privacy at this time," Offer added in the statement.

According to TMZ, Angelina became "fed up" with Brad's consumption of weed and possibly alcohol, and mixed with what she believes is "an anger problem".

The website adds that Angelina's decision to file has to do with the way Brad was parenting the children, she was extremely upset with his methods and she’s asking for physical custody of the couple's 6 children.

The couple have been together since 2004 but only married in August 2014 in a small, private ceremony in a chapel at Château Miraval in the village of Correns.

They have have six children together - Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, and twins Knox and Vivienne.
