Brad Pitt Just Found Out Angelina Jolie Was Divorcing Him Two Days Ago

Everyone is shocked about the end of Brangelina—including Brad Pitt himself.

Pitt, who separated from Angelina Jolie last week, found out about the pending divorce just two days ago, the day Jolie filed the papers making the split official, according to an US Weekly source

The couple, who cited irreconcilable differences for their divorce, had plans to fly to London this weekend, but since the divorce came so suddenly, those plans were canceled on Monday.

Both parties have requested privacy during this challenging time.

"I am very saddened by this, but what matters most now is the well-being of our kids," Pitt said in a statement to PEOPLE magazine. "I kindly ask the press to give them the space they deserve during this challenging time." 

The Hollywood power couple, who met on the set of Mr. and Mrs. Smith in 2005, married in 2014 in South France. During their 12 years together, the couple adopted two kids—Pax, 12, and Zahara, 11—and had three children of their own—Shiloh, 10, and eight-year-old twins Viviane and Knox.

While Jolie has requested full custody of their children, she wishes to grant her soon-to-be ex visitation rights. Jolie has yet to comment on the divorce. According to her lawyer, Robert Offer, the decision was made “for the health of her family.”
