This story is developing.

The Internet is filled with stories of Hollywood super couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt splitting up.

According to Hollywood gossip website TMZ, which broke the news, Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt on Sept 15, citing irreconcilable differences. (CNN confirmed the news, via Jolie's lawyer, shortly after.) According to the website's sources, the petition also notes there are possible issues of substance abuse and uncontrollable anger.

When it comes to their children, the website says that Jolie, 41, does not want Pitt to have joint physical custody of their six children but will allow for joint legal custody. This means that Pitt, 52, will have visitation rights but the children will stay with their mother.

The Jolie-Pitt kids are Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh and twins, Knox and Vivienne.

TMZ also mentions that sources close to Jolie reveals that the actress is concerned over Pitt's parenting methods and that he has worrying anger issues which might affect the children.

Reportedly, there is no third party involved in the situation.

Dubbed "Brangelina" by the media, the couple have been together since 2004 but were only married in 2014. Jolie and Pitt met in 2003 on the set of their first movie together, Mr And Mrs Smith, when Pitt was still married to actress Jennifer Aniston.
