Year 2016 has seen several marriages, engagements and relationships going sour in Hollywood and Bollywood, but the news of separation of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, a globally popular couple, has rocked the entertainment world like no other split.
Brad Pitt-Angelina Jolie: This came as a shocker for all the Brangelina fans when it was reported that the two have split and that Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt. While the actress cited “irreconcilable differences” as the grounds for the divorce.
Jolie and Pitt got together in 2004 after starring in “Mr. & Mrs. Smith”, leading to the latter’s split from Jennifer Aniston. They then got privately married in 2014 in a chapel at Château Miraval in the village of Correns, France. They raise six children together.
Pitt released a statement of his own to People magazine saying that “I am very saddened by this, but what matters most now is the well-being of our kids.”
Johnny Depp-Amber Heard: Amber Heard filed for divorce from Depp in May this year. Their divorce news got into the public eye after Amber’s allegation that she was physically and verbally abused by the “Pirates of the Caribbean” star throughout their relationship.
In India, Farhan Akhtar-Adhuna Bhabani, Arbaaz Khan-Malaika Arora, Lissy-Priyadarshan, Om Puri-Nandita and Soundarya Rajinikanth-Ashwin Ramkumar are among the couples who decided to go separate ways.
