People around the world are heartbroken over the end of Brangelina. Angelina Jolie has filed for divorce from Brad Pitt citing irreconcilable differences.

Jolie wants physical custody of their children - Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 8, and for Pitt to have legal visitation. Her attorney Robert Offer said in a statement: "This 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."

Pitt and Jolie fell in love on the sets of their 2004 movie Mr and Mrs Smith. The couple tied the knot on 23 August 2014.

"It was an amazing day. And I think there's an added security that comes with it," Pitt told ABC News of their decision to marry at that time. "We got six kids. I thought we were way past it. But I was surprised how much it meant to me, too. It's not just a piece of paper."

"The children certainly tie us together, but a relationship won't hold if it's only about the kids. You also must be really interested in each other and have a really, really wonderful, exciting time together. We do. Brad and I love being together. We enjoy it. We need it, and we always find that special time." - Angelina Jolie

"One of the greatest, smartest things I ever did was give my kids Angie as their mom. She's such a great mom. Oh, man, I'm so happy to have her. With a partner like Angie, I know that when I'm working, the kids are happy, safe, and prospering. And when Angie's working, she knows she has the same." – Brad Pitt

"To be in love with someone and be raising a family with someone and want to make that commitment and not be able to is ludicrous, just ludicrous." - Brad Pitt
