NEW YORK (AP) – Brangelina is no more. Angelina Jolie Pitt has filed for divorce from Brad Pitt, bringing an end to one of the world’s most star-studded, tabloid-generating romances.

An attorney for Jolie Pitt, Robert Offer, said Tuesday that she has filed for the dissolution of the marriage. Offer said the decision was made “for the health of the family.”

The couple has six children together: Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, and twins Knox and Vivienne.

Though together for 12 years, Pitt and Jolie only wed in August 2014. They married privately in the French hamlet of Correns in Provence with their children serving as ring bearers and throwing flower petals. They announced the ceremony days later.

Pitt and Jolie met on a movie set, Mr. & Mrs. Smith. At the time, Pitt was married to actress Jennifer Aniston. mr-and-mrs-smith-2005-11281

Jolie lists the date of separation as Sept. 15, 2016.

They’ve been together since 2004.
