Angelina Jolie has filed for divorce from Brad Pitt, and the trigger was a conflict over the kids, according to TMZ.

Jolie filed legal documents Monday citing irreconcilable differences.

She’s asking for physical custody of the couple’s six children.  She is asking the judge to give Pitt visitation.  It’s significant. She does not want Brad to have joint physical custody, only joint legal custody.

Sources connected with the couple say Jolie’s decision to file has to do with the way Brad was parenting the children. She was extremely upset with his methods.

Sources told TMZ her decision to file was solely over Brad’s interaction with their children. They say there was no “third person” involved.

Jolie is not asking for spousal support. She lists the date of separation as Sept. 15, 2016.

They married in August, 2014.  They’ve been together since 2004.
