Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie split! Ange files for divorce. What is Jennifer Aniston's reaction?

Can you believe it?

Angelina Jolie's lawyer has confirmed that she has filed for divorce from Brad Pitt.

That's right, Brangelina is no more.

Lawyer Robert Offer said Angelina filed for "dissolution of marriage" on Monday, adding the "decision was made for the health of the family".
"She will not be commenting, and asks that the family be given its privacy at this time," Mr Offer said in the statement.
Brad and Ange have been together since 2004, marrying in August 2014.

According to US entertainment website TMZ, Jolie cited "irreconcilable differences" in the divorce papers and listed the date of separation of 15 September.
It is understood Ange is asking for physical custody of the couple's six children (Maddox, Pax, Zahara, who are adopted, and biological children Shiloh and twins Knox and Vivienne).
Ange is asking the judge to give Pitt visitation rights.

According to TMZ, there are allegations of 
conflict over the kids, substance abuse and anger

I had a bit of a soft spot for the couple - having followed their every move during my time as news editor on a national weekly celebrity magazine a few years back (before I went on to have my own twins, just like Brad and Ange did.
The photo of Angelina breastfeeding that appeared on the cover of a magazine also probably helped inspire and empower women all around the world - 'Well if Ange can do it with a household full of other children, then I can too'.
Maybe not, but it quite possibly was in the back of my mind, or helped normalise breastfeeding in general).

Anyway, back to the point.

It's kind of no surprise.
Apparently more than 50% of couples who have multiples (twins, triplets or more) end up divorcing (stat I read somewhere that always gets thrown around).
This can be due to stress, lack of actual adult time together, financial concerns and other issues.

As the great singer Anne Marie says in her song 'Alarm' (one of my current faves ;-): 'same way they come that's the way they go...' 'a cheat stays a cheater'. :-O

Wonder if this played any part?

Wonder if Jen Aniston is having a bit of a giggle? (Remember she was still with Brad when he and Ange fell in love while filming Mr and Mrs Smith).

How are you feeling about it all?
Who is having the last laugh now?
Would you kick Brad to the kerb as well?
