Adele dedicates show to Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie
Sep 21 2016 by Francis Osborne
Brad Pitt has broken his silence after it emerged his wife of two years Angelina Jolie has filed for divorce following 12 years together.
Hollywood star George Clooney was visibly shocked when a media person informed him about his industry friendsAngelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's break up and the actor called it unfortunate.
The 28-year-old singer addressed the issue to the packed arena on Tuesday, asking if she could "talk about the elephant in the room, that Brangelina broke up", calling their divorce "the end of an era".
The photos which were shared on Twitter, were taken ten weeks ago as they celebrated the eighth birthday of their youngest children, Vivienne and Knox, by dining out at The Griddle Cafe in West Hollywood.
But, while the 41-year-old supposedly believes Brad is a risk to their kids - and wants full physical custody - the Fight Club alum is now saying SHE'S the one putting them in harm's way. Both requested privacy for themselves and their children in the wake of the publicised divorce.
In a statement, Jolie's attorney said the decision was made for "the health of the family". The couple met while filming Mr & Mrs Smith in 2004 and married on their French estate in 2014.
In a statement to People magazine, Pitt said, "I am very saddened by this, but what matters most now is the well-being of our kids.
"She's the type of actor who is not only loved by the public and the fans and the critics, but also actors know exactly how good she is and what she can do".
Jolie had been married twice before - to actors Jonny Lee Miller and Billy Bob Thornton. Brad felt it was important for them to live life to the fullest, but as the months passed, Angelina seemed to withdraw, making the children and her work with the United Nations a priority. Jolie, like Clooney, is a humanitarian and has advocated for refugees as a UNHCR Special Envoy and Goodwill Ambassador.
Pitt started the Make It Right Foundation after Hurricane Katrina in 2005, donating $5m (£3.8m) to help rebuild New Orleans after the disaster.
