Divorce? Say it’s not so, Brangelina!
Rockland’s own Angelina Jolie, an actress, filmmaker and humanitarian and daughter of actor and Westchester native Jon Voight, is splitting from husband Brad Pitt, citing irreconcilable differences, including substance abuse and anger issues, according to multiple media reports.
Jolie grew up in the exclusive Hudson River enclave of Sneden’s Landing, a hamlet of Orangetown.
The Hollywood power couple have been together since 2004, but only got officially hitched two years ago.
Pitt, an actor and producer who rocketed to fame as the cowboy hitchhiker in “Thelma & Louise,” was married to “Friends” actress Jennifer Aniston when he first met Jolie.
Aniston filed for divorce in 2005, citing irreconcilable differences.
Between adoptions and natural childbirth, Jolie and Pitt have a brood of six kids.
Now those kids could be at the center of a nasty custody battle.
According to TMZ, Jolie filed legal documents, citing the separation date of Thursday, Sept. 16.
She is asking the court to give Pitt visitation rights but she wants full custody of the children, according to CNN.
Pitt stuck with Jolie through a series of recent health crises, including a preventative double mastectomy.
The tipping point appears to be Pitt’s alleged use of pot and booze and his anger issues which Jolie feels were having a negative effect on their kids, TMZ reported sources told it.
There were no allegations that a third person had anything to do with the split, TMZ reported.
Jolie, the daughter of actress Marcheline Bertrand and actor Voight, lived in Sneden’s Landing with her mother and brother in the 1980s after her parents divorced. Voight is a graduate of Archbishop Stepinac in White Plains.
After attending elementary school in Orangetown, Jolie moved back to Los Angeles, where she had been born, to attend high school.
Her childhood home, a 4,000-square-foot 1950’s structure on Woods Road, was purchased by a house flipper, renovated and then put on the market for $2.049 million last year, according to The Wall Street Journal.
It could not be learned Tuesday if the house has been sold.
