Brad Pitt is completely devastated after Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from him after two years of marriage. The 41-year-old actress reportedly filed legal documents on 19 September citing irreconcilable differences.

A source told Us Weekly: "He is beside himself and has been crying. He was completely caught off guard and blindsided and had no idea she would do this."

"Angelina filed the court papers a minute before the courts closed on Monday night. He didn't have a lawyer or anything. She had threatened divorce in the past but he did not think she would file this time," the insider revealed.

The source added: "He is completely devastated and beside himself. He is a shattered man. He's extremely upset. But he is totally focused on just being helpful and making sure his kids are doing as well as possible."

Meanwhile, Pitt has said he is "very saddened" that Jolie has filed for divorce. He told People magazine: "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."
