The news of the end to #Brangelina as we know it shocked many people to no end when it broke yesterday, and now the former couple have released statements regarding their impending divorce.
Chrissy Teigen and Alyssa Milano are a few of the celebrities who reacted earlier to the news of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s split.

The internet has since then gone into overdrive with Jennifer Aniston memes insinuating that she must be on cloud 9 after karma came back to hunt her estranged husband.
Meanwhile, French actress Marion Cotillard has also become the recipient of brutal attacks from Jolie fans who blame for her the split, despite the revelation that the divorce had nothing to do with cheating.
In an exclusive statement to People, Pitt stated that he was saddened by the events but the more concerned about their six children.
“I am very saddened by this, but what matters most now is the well-being of our kids.” I kindly ask the press to give them the space they deserve during this challenging time,” he noted.
Angelina Jolie, through her lawyer, Laura A. Wasser, also released a statement saying that the actress will not be commenting on the issue.
“This decision was made for the health of the family.” “She will not be commenting at this time, and asks that the family be given their privacy during this difficult time.”
The privacy courtesy was however not extended to Marion Cotillard as #Brangelina fans have taken over her mentions with snake and pig emojis, calling her a number of unsavoury names and inherently blaming her for the divorce.
The actress who stars alongside Brad Pitt in the spy thriller- Allied is said to be ‘absolutely devastated’ by these claims which started off following their onscreen sexual chemistry described as ‘electric’ on set.
Sources close to the couple claim that Jolie is spreading ‘malicious lies’ about Brad Pitt having anger issues that become dangerous when mixed with weed and alcohol. They say this is not the case as “he’s a loving and devoted father” who has never and would never put his children in harm’s way.
Angelina Jolie filed for divorce on Monday citing irreconcilable differences and noting that she did not agree with her estranged husband’s parenting methods because she believes Brad poses a danger to the kids by fueling his “anger problem” with pot and alcohol.
