Angelina Jolie files for divorce from Brad Pitt, cites irreconcilable differences

Hollywood's most famous couple is calling it quits.

Angelina Jolie has filed for divorce from Brad Pitt, a lawyer for the actress told the Associated Press.

According to court documents, Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt on Monday, citing irreconcilable differences.

The actress is seeking physical custody of their six children, with visitation rights for Pitt.

Pitt released a statement to People magazine.

"I am very saddened by this, but what matters most now is the well-being of our kids," he said. "I kindly ask the press to give them the space they deserve during this challenging time."

A rep for Jolie did not return FOX411's request for comment.

Their children are: 15-year-old Maddox, 12-year-old Pax, 11-year-old Zahara, 10-year-old Shiloh, and 8-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.

Though together for 12 years, Pitt and Jolie Pitt only wed in August 2014. They married privately in the French hamlet of Correns in Provence.
