It is no longer news that Hollywood sweethearts, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, are no longer an item after many years together as a couple.
Despite the media attention their split garnered, the duo had been very low-key about the reasons behind their divorce.
However, the Tomb Raider actress has now shed more light on the reason for their split. According to reports gathered from Pop Culture, Jolie said that separating from Brad Pitt was the right thing to do and that she made the decision for the well being of the family.
Explaining further, Jolie said that a lot of people have been taking advantage of their silence to spread false stories and that she constantly reminds their six children that they know their own truth.
“It was the right decision. I continue 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. In fact, they are six very brave, very strong young people.”
Brad Pitt used to be married to another actress, Jennifer Aniston, but things took another turn after he started to work with Angelina Jolie on the set of the Mr and Mrs Smith movie.
Pitt and Aniston were married from 2000 to 2005. Despite that, the two seem to be striking up friendship again going by their relationship in recent times. Pitt was recently spotted giving Aniston a sweet hug during an award show.
