Jolie files for divorce from Pitt 'for health of the family'Twelve years and six kids later, Brangelina to split
Angelina Jolie has filed for divorce from Brad Pitt, bringing an end to what began as the world's most tabloid headline-generating romance before morphing into a glamorous engine of family and philanthropy. Mark Vincent Kaplan, a veteran divorce attorney who was Kevin Federline's attorney in his divorce from Britney Spears and has handled several high-profile cases, reviewed the filing at the AP's request. Pitt and Jolie became close while filming 2005's "Mr. & Mrs. Smith," prompting widespread speculation - consistently denied by the couple - that Jolie prompted Pitt's divorce from Aniston. Jolie, who became special envoy for the United Nations in 2012, became an outspoken voice for refugees, as well as for breast cancer treatment after undergoing a double mastectomy herself. Pitt built homes in New Orleans for victims of Hurricane Katrina.
