And they are now talking to their lawyers about splitting their 125million pound fortune and sharing the custody of their six children. And if sources are to be believed, a reunion between the two is just not possible. Pitt, 46, has even suggested Jolie to get some psychiatric help, while the actress has dubbed him "toxic".
Insiders say a troubled Pitt has developed a drinking habit in the recent months. Moreover, his closeness to ex-wife Jennifer Aniston, 40, has triggered quarrels, even though Jolie too remained friendly with her former hubbies Billy Bob Thornton, 54, and Jonny Lee Miller, 37.
Sources claim Pitt and Jolie, 34, hardly spend any time together and sleep in different beds. And now the news of Brangelina's split is expected to become official within weeks. "Brad bought a Harley recently, and when he is sick of the chaos in the house, he just takes off for days and understandably it gets to Ang. But at the same time Ang can be all-consuming and morose and he fails to understand her need for more and more children," the Daily Star quoted a source as saying.
The insider added: "She tends to suck the life out of those around her so, for Brad, he finds it so hard to be around. At first these two had the most amazing sexual chemistry but that can only last so long until you need more in common. She hates everything he loves and he thinks she's insane. It's not a good mix."
Hotel worker Anna Kowalski, who helped the couple with their recent stay in New York, said she was not at all surprised with the news of their break up. "I didn't see any connection between Pitt and Jolie. At night Angelina drinks white or red wine in the suite while Brad is always in the lounge drinking beer. He just sits by himself texting for hours," she said.
