Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are headed towards a R5.5 billion divorce

Angelina Jolie has filed to divorce Brad Pitt.

The couple – who has been together for 12 years - married in August 2014.

It was Pitt's second marriage and Jolie’s third.

According to TMZ, the 41-year-old beauty decided to end their marriage because she was "extremely upset" with the way the Moneyball star has been parenting the kids and so decided to seek joint legal custody, but not joint physical custody, of their six children.

The actress-turned-director is not seeking spousal support.

The estimated value of their joined assets is between $400 million and $450 million! That is more than the additional spend committed by the South African government to spend on university subsidies for the poor and families earning less than R600 000 per year.
