Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt Divorce: Media Scrum Begins Forming Outside Former Couple’s LA Home

The couple have not been spotted in public since the news of their split broke.

It’s been barely 24 hours since Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from husband of two years Brad Pitt, and US media outlets have now pitched up outside the former couple’s LA home.

The duo were together for 10 years prior to getting hitched, and their split was announced on Tuesday (20 September), with Angelina’s lawyer confirming TMZ’s report that divorce papers had been lodged.

Now, numerous camera crews and reporters have begun gathering outside their Hollywood abode:

While the internet was busy attempting to making jokes about the matter, Brad Pitt shared a statement on the split, which read: “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.”

Angelina’s petition includes a request for sole physical custody of the couple’s six children, which will give Brad visitation rights.

The actress has hired famous Hollywood divorce lawyer Laura Wasser, whose previous clients include Johnny Depp and Khloe Kardashian, to negotiate the divorce.

She also represented Angelina during her split from Billy Bob Thornton.
