On Tuesday morning, the world was shaken by the news that Hollywood's beloved "It" couple, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, have filed for divorce. With summertime rumors of a divorce now confirmed by CNN, AP, and even the UN, celebrities and fans far and wide stopped believing in love almost as quickly as they started to in 2004. Many years later, all we have is our memories of the Brangelina that once was, and the last photograph of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie as a happily married couple. So, prepare yourself before you continue reading. These final moments of the pair may be just as hard to swallow as the break up news itself.
Update: Jolie's lawyer has confirmed that she did in fact file for divorce from Pitt in a statement to Reuters: "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," said Robert Offer, according to the newswire.
Update #2: Pitt also confirmed his divorce from Jolie in a statement to PEOPLE, saying, "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."
Prior to Jolie visiting Syrian refugees in Jordan earlier this month, the last time the actress was spotted with her now-estranged husband was in July 2016. Despite the pair celebrating their two year wedding anniversary in August, they managed to remain under the radar for their intimate celebration amidst their busy schedules. And, as a result, their last paparazzi photograph together comes in the form of an outing at L.A.'s The Griddle Cafe on July 12, with their two 8-year-old twins, Knox and Vivienne.
While their sunglasses and coffee make them look like a perfect Hollywood couple, there is a sense of distraction among them as they focus on their kids. In fact, one specific photograph from that same outing does make Angelina appear to be a little cold towards her unseen husband at the time. If my interpretation has any basis in fact, this moment could have been the beginning of trouble in paradise unfolding right before our very eyes.
Just two days prior, however, Jolie and Pitt were seen in a moment of pure sweetness. In fact, on July 10, Brangelina was spotted cuddling in a Los Angeles Jamba Juice while taking their daughter, Shiloh, for a visit. This moment is the moment I'd rather remember the couple by.
There are some crazy rumors about Brangelina's divorce circling, but I'm going to focus on the good times. The times when Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were the sassy, world-dominating Hollywood couple they were always meant to be.
