Brangelina is over. Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from Brad Pitt after two years of marriage according to Us Weekly. 

Here is a heart wrenching statement from Jolie's representative:

"Angelina Jolie Pitt has filed for dissolution of the marriage," Jolie's rep said in a statement to Us Tuesday, September 20. 

"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."

Irreconcilable differences? The Academy Award winning actress Jolie, 41, filed divorce documents Monday, September 19, citing irreconcilable differences. 

Jolie Pitt is seeking physical custody of the couple's six children — Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 8 — and requested that the 52 year old Fight Club actor should only get joint legal custody.

Angelina and Brad started dating back in 2004 — while he was still married to Jennifer Aniston — while costarring in Mr. & Mrs. Smith. 

This was Jolie Pitt's third marriage. She previously tied the knot with Jonny Lee Miller and Billy Bob Thornton.

"Its very sad for the family" said Brad's long-time friend George Clooney who was devastated when he heard the shocking news of their divorce.
