One of Hollywood’s highest profile marriages is over.
According to a report on CNN, Angelina Jolie has filed for divorce from husband Brad Pitt, citing irreconcilable differences.
Court documents indicate that the pair separated on September 15, two years and one month after they married in August 2014.
Jolie is seeking physical custody of their six children and asking the court to grant Pitt visitation.
She is also asking to keep “miscellaneous jewelry and other personal effects” as well as any earnings from after the date of their separation and other separate assets to be determined later.
“Angelina will always do what’s in the best interest to protect her children,” Geyer Kosinski, Jolie’s manager, told E! News in a statement Tuesday.

When you hear this, you might think it’s one of those classic, frivolous lawsuits by some moron. But just wait . . . by the end you’ll TOTALLY be on this woman’s side.
Stacey Pincus of Chicago, Illinois just filed a class action lawsuit against Starbucks . . . because they put too much ICE in their iced coffee.
Sounds dumb, right? Just hear her out. She points out that Starbucks advertises their drinks by how many ounces they have: 12 ounces in a tall, 16 in a grande, 24 in a venti, and 30 in a trenta.
And that’s how much coffee you get . . . if you order it HOT. But if you order it iced, you get a cup full of ice, which cuts into the amount of coffee. So in a venti, you only get 14 ounces of coffee with 10 ounces of ice. Instead of 24 ounces of coffee.
Her lawsuit says, quote, “[You] get just over half of the advertised amount, and just over half of the amount for which you are paying.” She also found that makes iced drinks the most profitable items on the menu.
So she wants $5 million for all the people who’ve been ripped off in the past 10 years. The suit is also demanding that Starbucks serve iced drinks in bigger cups so you get the full amount of coffee you order.

Remember the Nicolas Cage movie “It Could Happen To You”, where he wins the lottery and shares the money with a waitress he just met? This is like the opposite . . .
A woman in southwestern China named Yuan Li separated from her husband last year, after she caught him cheating on her with an ex-girlfriend. (We don’t know how old she is, but she looks like she’s in her early 40’s.)
Then without talking to her about it, he filed for divorce in February, and demanded she sign the forms immediately. Which she did, because they were about $40,000 in debt, and he offered to take on all of it.
But what she didn’t know was that he’d just hit the LOTTERY for $725,000. And he waited until the day after their divorce went through to cash in the ticket. She only found out about it when a friend called to congratulate her.
Her husband claims the fact that he waited until after the divorce was just a coincidence, and he wasn’t trying to hide the money from her.
But she ended up suing him, and a judge just ordered him to give her $180,000 from his winnings. It’s not clear if he still has to cover all the debt too.

Tuna salad sandwich
This is the easiest $25 you’ll ever make.
There was a class-action lawsuit filed against Starkist Tuna about two-and-a-half years ago, claiming they were intentionally under-filling their cans by a few tenths of an ounce.
And they just settled the lawsuit. Even though they didn’t officially admit to anything, they’re PAYING UP.
If you bought at least one five-ounce can of Starkist tuna between February 19th, 2009 and October 31st of last year, you’re eligible for $25 . . . or $50 in tuna.
Now, odds are you don’t have any grocery store receipts to prove you bought the tuna. But that’s fine. You just have to SAY you did. Although if you lie, you could be facing perjury charges . . . but we have no idea how they’ll prove it.
