What a day it has been in the Brangelina universe. While we have all waited (for like six hours) on pins and needles to find out the details of this shocking split, Brad Pitt is FINALLY (I know, those six hours felt like six years) speaking up about his wants and needs. Right now, it’s all about the kids.
Brad told People,
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.
Angelina seems to have the same mindset, releasing a statement to E! News through her manager, Geyer Kosinski saying,
Angelina will always do what’s in the best interest of taking care of her family. She appreciates everyone’s understanding of their need for privacy at this time.
Heartbreak city. It seems like the axis on this whirlwind divorce is spinning around the kids. In the original report, it stated that Angelina would be seeking full custody with visitation rights for Brad.
It seems they can’t agree on parenting techniques, but they can agree that their children need to be protected through this hard time. Both Angelina and Brad are reminding us that although they are super famous, they are super human, and this news is most heartbreaking for the kids. Pass the Kleenex..
