One of the most famous and envied Hollywood couples has split up after what seemed like a glorious 12 years, as explained in the American website TMZ.

They met on the set of the movie Mr. and Mrs. Smith, and after 10 years of the relationship, Angelina said “yes I do” in August 2014 and so decided to cement their relationship. Both are parents of Maddox (15), Pax (12), Zahara (11), Shiloh (10) and Vivienne and Knox (8) twins. Now, two years later, they have decided to be separate ways.
Their prenuptial contract includes a clause which states that all children will stay with Angelina in the event that Brad will be unfaithful and also stipulated that if the time came for divorce, their sizeable fortune would be split equally between the two.
