Angelina Jolie has reportedly filed for divorce from Brad Pitt, TMZ reported Tuesday. Alleged legal documents obtained by TMZ show that Jolie is citing "irreconcilable differences." Jolie is reportedly asking for physical custody of their 6 children, asking a judge to give visitation rights to Pitt.

A separate report from Page Six, however, claims that Jolie dumped Pitt after a hired private investigator uncovered an alleged affair with Marion Cotillard. "[Jolie] hired a private eye because she felt that he was fooling around with her on the set, and it turns out, he was," a source told the publication Tuesday. "That was the final straw." Another source told Page Six that Jolie and Pitt had been arguing over their differences in lifestyle in recent months, adding that Jolie wants to be a full-time humanitarian while Pitt is still about that Hollywood life.

Jolie and Pitt last appeared together in the film By the Sea, a 2015 drama penned and directed by Jolie. The film, set in 1970s France and centered on a struggling married couple, was met with slightly mixed reviews but received praise for the sly darkness lurking under its glossy exterior.
