Jolie cited irreconcilable differences and listed their separation date as September 15. She is not seeking spousal support.

Pitt began dating Jolie in 2005 after starring in Mr. & Mrs. Smith. Their relationship followed his split from ex-wife Jennifer Aniston.

The actors secretly married in 2014.

Sources close to the couple claim the actress strongly disagreed with Pitt's parenting style. She reportedly became "extremely upset with his methods."
