According to TMZ, Angelina filed legal documents on Monday citing irreconcilable differences between the couple.

"Angelina became "fed up" with Brad's consumption of weed and possibly alcohol, and mixed with what she believes is "an anger problem" became dangerous for the children," sources report on the website.

It is also said that the actress is seeking physical custody of the couple's six children.

They have three adopted children and three biological kids.
