Brad Pitt has pulled out of a red carpet appearance, following his split from Angelina Jolie.

The ‘Fight Club’ actor lent his voice to the upcoming Terrence Malick film ‘Voyage Of Time’, but has decided not to attend the film’s premiere next week due to his ongoing “family situation”.

After two years of marriage, it was revealed earlier this week that Angelina had filed for divorce from Brad.

The two first met on the set of the film ‘Mr And Mrs Smith’, and were together for 12 years until their eventual break-up.

Brad later legally adopted Angelina’s two children, Maddox and Zahara, before eventually welcoming another four into their family, Pax, Shiloh, Vivienne and Knox.

Although it’s not yet known what led to the break-up, Angelina told fans at the time that she’d made her decision “for the health of the family”.

Brad then followed this with his own words the next day, adding: “I am very saddened by this but what matters most now is the well-being of our kids. I kindly ask the press to give them the space they deserve during this challenging time.”
