Jolie is seeking custody of her six children and has asked for Pitt to be given visitation rights. Sources close to the couple have said they both want a cordial dissolution with Jolie asking for privacy according to her lawyer.
"She will not be commenting, and asks that the family be given its privacy at this time."
Pitt is also focused on the children.
"I am very saddened by this, but what matters most now is the wellbeing of our kids. I kindly ask the press to give them the space they deserve during this challenging time."
Barring all the personal news, the internet broke after hearing about the split, with some brining Jen Aniston into it:
Brad and Angelina. How am I supposed to go to work today ?
