Angelina Jolie has filed for divorce from Brad Pitt and the trigger was a conflict over the kids... TMZ has learned.
Jolie filed legal docs Monday citing irreconcilable differences.
She's asking for physical custody of the couple's 6 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 tell us ... Angelina's decision to file has to do with the way Brad was parenting the children ... she was extremely upset with his methods.
We're told there was no alleged "third person" ... her decision to file was solely over Brad's interaction with their children.
Jolie, who's being repped by disso queen Laura Wasser, is not asking for spousal support.
Jolie lists the date of separation as Sept. 15, 2016.
They married in August, 2014. They've been together since 2004
She went on to say he's been on drugs too and too stern with the kids. Brad says she lets them run wild instead and denies the drugs accusations. This will be messy!
The tea is that Brad cheated with Marion Cotillard. MESS. Angelina shoulda known how you get 'em is how you'll lose 'em. Somewhere Jennifer is cackling.
