They have been considered Hollywood’s power couple ever since they got together, but today news emerged that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are to divorce.

The shock news was announced exclusively by TMZ this afternoon and reported that it was Angelina, 41, who filed for divorce on Monday citing “irreconcilable differences”.

The couple, who married in August 2014, have been together for 12 years and have six children together. They met in summer 2004 while working together on Mr & Mrs Smith, while Brad, 52, was married to Jennifer Aniston. Both denied an on-set romance, but later confirmed they did fall for each other while filming the action movie. It became Hollywood’s most famous love triangle.

We are waiting to find out more about the real reason behind their split.
