Jolie, 41, is also requesting physical custody of the children; she is asking the judge to give Pitt, 52, visitation rights. The actors, who played a tortured couple in 2015's By the Sea, were last seen in public together in mid-July.

This was the third marriage for Jolie, who was previously wed to Jonny Lee Miller and Billy Bob Thornton, and the second for Pitt, who was previously wed to Jennifer Aniston. The actors met on the set of the 2005 movie Mr. & Mrs. Smith and began dating after Pitt's split from Aniston.
