Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have released a joint statement about their split.

When Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from Brad Pitt in September last year, it shattered the #relationshipgoals of fans around the world.

Since then, there has been speculation and questions and more speculation.

When the news broke, TMZ reported Jolie filed for divorce because of “conflict over the kids” and Pitt’s “substance abuse and anger”. She initially wanted sole custody of the pair’s six children.

Soon after, Pitt issued a statement saying he was “saddened by this but what matters most now is the well-being of our kids”.

Now, the actors have released their first joint statement.

Clearly drafted by lawyers (unless, together, the pair have lost the ability to use full stops and fewer than 50 words per sentence), the statement says the pair have agreed to keep all court documents private with the intention of protecting their children.

The statement reads:

"The parties and their counsel have signed agreements to preserve the privacy rights of their children and family by keeping all court documents confidential and engaging a private judge to make any necessary legal decisions and to facilitate the expeditious resolution of any remaining issues."
