Brangelina is no more.

Angelina Jolie has filed for divorce from Brad Pitt, TMZ reports. The documents were filed Monday, citing irreconcilable differences. She is reportedly asking for physical custody of their six children – Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 8 – with Pitt getting joint legal custody.

TMZ claims sources told them the split was over the way Pitt was parenting the children, as well as substance abuse issues (weed and possibly alcohol) and an anger issue. She is not asking for spousal support.

“Angelina Jolie Pitt has filed for dissolution of the marriage,” Jolie’s rep said in a statement. “This decision was made for the health of the family. She will not be commenting at this time, and asks that the family be given their privacy during this difficult time.”

Pitt and Jolie have been together since 2004 and married in August 2014. They had said they would not marry until gay people were offered the same right. They eventually did tie the knot before full marriage equality was granted, in June 2015, for which they received some criticism.

Now that gay people have the right to marry, they also have the right to divorce. While early reports claimed gay marriages were ending in fewer divorces, that was soon revealed to be an error of how the math was done and that gay marriages were ending in divorce just as often.

Maybe this is just Jolie and Pitt honoring gay divorce with a divorce of their own?
