Angelina Jolie has dropped ‘Pitt’ from her last name amid her divorce from estranged husband, actor Brad Pitt. The news comes two days after it was reported that Jolie and Pitt, 55, are legally single.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, the former couple filed a judgment on April 12 to move for a bifurcated judgement, which means they could end their marriage even as they continue to negotiate their divorce settlement. Sources told the publication “it was very important for the stars to emotionally break away from each other and begin their newly single lives, so the documents were fast-tracked with their private judge”. The former couple’s six children are also listed on the document, but their names will continue to be hyphenated, Jolie-Pitt.
