Madame Tussauds has separated the wax statues of Hollywood’s former power couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt after the actress filed for divorce. The museum posted a picture of the statues placed apart on their official Twitter page.
“Following the news that has shocked celebrity watchers worldwide, we can confirm we have separated Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s figures,” the post read.
The couple’s wax figures were launched in 2013.
Following the split, Jolie’s wax figure is placed next to actress Nicole Kidman’s statue, and Pitt’s figure is positioned close to Morgan Freeman’s.
Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt on Monday, September 19, citing irreconcilable differences. The couple had been together for 10 years before tying the knot in 2014.
Sources said Jolie took the decision because she wasn’t happy with Pitt’s parenting ways.
According to sources, Jolie filed for a divorce on Monday by submitting legal documents in the court for the same. It is also heard that Jolie has asked for the physical custody of all their six children, with Pitt only getting visitation rights and a joint legal custody. This hints at the fact that Jolie was allegedly unhappy with the way Pitt was discharging his parental duties, hence, the major reason for conflict cited is their kids.
Earlier, there were reports that the couple was contemplating a divorce due to a ‘third person’ in their relationship. Many were holding Pitt’s rumoured affair with actress Marion Cotillard as the cause of the potential split. A few days back, there were also reports about Pitt’s increasing interest in actress Gwyneth Paltrow, which turned out to be false. We also hear that Jolie has asked for no spousal support. In the papers, she has allegedly written date of separation as ’15 September 2016′.
