Divorce is never easy.
While Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have reportedly been fighting for a LONG TIME, sources at Us Weekly say the decision to split was sudden despite the ongoing tension.

According to the report, Angie just decided to leave Pitt "one week ago" following an unidentified incident:
"The final divorce decision was only made one week ago. An incident took place and prompted [Angelina] to act and file."
Hmm… we wonder what the "incident" was about. It definitely lines up with Jon Voight's theory that some "serious" sh*t went down for his daughter to file.
Regardless of what happened and the drama surrounding their parenting styles, the beauty still views Brad as the "love of her life". At this point the decision was motivated by her kids' well-being opposed to her emotions.
One insider explained:
"She still says Brad is the love of her life, and the decision has weighed heavy on her heart. Her priority now is the children."
Aww… what a sad situation. At least the 41-year-old is putting her children first.
Besides the emotional aspects of this case, there's also the couple's financial assets to consider. While A.J. is not asking for spousal support as we previously reported, she does want "miscellaneous jewelry and other personal effects" in addition to "earnings and accumulations" that she made "from and after the date of separation" (September 15).
Well, that makes sense! It will be interesting to see what Mr. Pitt requests in his legal docs.
