The news of Angelina Jolie filing a divorce from husband Brad Pitt has created quite a stir. Los Angeles Police Department is reportedly patrolling the house in Los Feliz, Calif, where Jolie and Pitt lived with their six children.
According to LAPD Public Information Officer Tony Im, the police is ensuring extra security for the star family and the neighbourhood, following Jolie’s move.
“We were dealing with quality of life issues for the neighbourhood,” Im was quoted as saying by the Radar Online. “We went by to make sure that no one needed anything and that everyone was respecting the neighbourhood.”
The 41-year-old actress separated from Pitt, 52, on September 15. According to the court documents, the actress asked for joint legal custody of their children but full physical custody. According to a report by the Mirror.com, Jolie is upset with Pitt’s parenting skills.
“Brad was parenting the children,” a source close to Jolie said. “She was extremely upset with his methods.”
The insider also claimed that Jolie became ‘fed up’ with her husband’s use of weed and also possibly alcohol, which she believes are the reason behind his anger problem. The actress was also, reportedly, compelled to hire a private investigator to find out whether her husband is cheating on her with Marion Cotillard, the actress of his new film ‘Allied.’
Her lawyers confirmed that she filed a divorce on Monday citing irreconcilable differences.
“This decision was made for the health of the family. She will not be commenting, and asks that the family be given its privacy at this time,” Jolie’s attorney Robert Offer said.
Pitt commented on the divorce saying he is deeply saddened by it, but it is the well-being of the kids that matters the most now.
Radar Online reported that shortly after their marriage, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt started their joint venture ‘By The Sea,’ which was filmed in Malta and the island of Goza. There were reports that Pitt’s drinking greatly affected the production. All six children of the couple were present on the sets and had to go through their father’s poor parenting.
“Angelina was very angry with him and would criticize him and try and keep the kids away when he was at his worst,” a source told the Radar Online.
