ANGELINA Jolie has opened up on her divorce from Brad Pitt, admitting that she “separated for the wellbeing of my family.”
The actress has rarely spoken about her split from the Oscar-winning actor, which shocked fans in 2016 and has led to almost five years of intense feuding between the pair.

Now, however, the mom-of-six has admitted that it was “the right decision” for her family and that she continues “to focus on their healing.”
“Some have taken advantage of my silence, and the children see lies about themselves in the media, but I remind them that they know their own truth and their own minds,” she added.
Speaking to British Vogue, she concluded: “In fact, they are six very brave, very strong young people.”
The pair have six kids: Maddox, 18, Pax, 15, Zahara, 14, Shiloh, 13, and Vivienne and Knox, 11.

Maddox, Zahara and Pax were adopted from orphanages in Cambodia, Ethiopia and Vietnam, respectively.
The remaining three are their biological children.
The six children have been spending the majority of their time with Angelina during lockdown at her $25million home just minutes from their dad’s Los Feliz mansion.
Maddox recently flew home from Seoul’s Yonsei University, months after he spoke to paparazzi about his strained relationship with Brad, saying “whatever happens, happens.”

Brad and his son have reportedly spent little time together since an alleged row on a private jet back in 2016 — which was the beginning of the end of his marriage.
The major row on a private jet flight saw the FBI investigate Brad over claims he had been “physically abusive” towards Maddox.
Angelina filed for divorce shortly after; Brad was later cleared.
Sources previously claimed the former couple, who were together for more than 10 years, are in a better place after a messy custody battle, and Brad has been reconnecting with Maddox.
