Angelina Jolie Releases Second Statement Since She Filed For DivorceAngelina Jolie filed for divorce from Brad Pitt on Monday after two years of marriage and more than a decade together. Pitt has released one statement to the press since news of the divorce broke; Jolie has released two.
Geyer Kosinski, Jolie’s manager, told E! News on Tuesday, “Angelina will always do what’s in the best interest of taking care of her family. She appreciates everyone’s understanding of their need for privacy at this time.”
In a prior statement, the actress’s attorney told People, “Angelina Jolie-Pitt has filed for dissolution of the marriage. This decision was made for the health of the family. She will not be commenting at this time, and asks that the family be given their privacy during this difficult time.”
The statements share a common theme: family and privacy. Pitt’s statement to People had the same messaging, “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.”
