An unsuspected and shocking event happened in the entertainment world today. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are getting divorced. How on Earth could this happen? They love each other! They have so many children together! Alas, life isn't always peachy keen, and just as normal folks are coping with the disheartening news via social media, celebrities are also reacting to Pitt and Jolie's divorce with shock, dismay, and some comedy to ease the pain.
Jolie's lawyer 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.
Pitt also released a statement. He 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."
I never thought I would see the day that I would read this headline. Over the years, Pitt and Jolie have become a symbol of a solid family in the wild world of Hollywood. They have defended each other, been through health scares, supported humanitarian causes — and all while raising six children! While looking through social media after the news of the divorce, Brangelina, as a couple, made a huge impact on many fans over the years. These celebrities reacting to the Brangelina divorce show that even in their own world of Hollywood, their influence was strong. It's a sad day, y'all.
Honestly my first thought.
