Jolie Pitt, 41, filed legal docs Monday citing irreconcilable differences, according to TMZ. She asked for physical custody of the couple’s shared six children – Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Vivienne, and Knox – asking for Pitt to be granted visitation, the outlet said, citing legal documents.
The couple was last spotted together in mid July, just ahead of their second wedding anniversary.
Just last month, sources told PEOPLE that the couple were “as happy as ever.”
“They really are great,” the source said. “They’re really busy, but happy. The kids are getting so big! It’s hard to believe.”
Pitt and Jolie Pitt first met on the 2003 set of their 2005 thriller Mr. & Mrs. Smith, and began dating a few years later – after the actor’s split from then-wife Jennifer Aniston.
“Because of the film, we ended up being brought together to do all these crazy things, and I think we found this strange friendship and partnership that kind of just suddenly happened,” Jolie Pitt told Vogue in 2006. “I think a few months in I realized, ‘God, I can’t wait to get to work.’ … Anything we had to do with each other, we just found a lot of joy in it together and a lot of real teamwork. We just became kind of a pair.”
In May 2006, the couple welcomed their first child together, daughter Shiloh, now 10. She joined Jolie Pitt’s adopted brood of Maddox, now 15, and Zahara, now 11.
In 2007, the couple adopted son Pax, now 12, from a Vietnamese orphanage.
The next year, twins Knox and Vivienne were born. Of their new family of eight, Jolie Pitt told PEOPLE at the time, “It is chaos, but we are managing it and having a wonderful time.”
After nearly seven years together, Pitt proposed in 2012, but it would be two years before the pair married at the family’s French estate.
