A source told Us that Pitt, 52, and Jolie Pitt, 41, clashed over parenting styles for their six children, Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10 and twins Knox and Vivienne, 8. “They came so close to this before,” the insider told Us, adding that they butted heads over how to raise their kids, among other issues. "They fought a lot over the years and disagreed about many things.”

Although Brangelina tried to stick it out, eventually the couple reached a breaking point.

The By the Sea actress filed documents on Monday, September 19, citing irreconcilable differences, TMZ reports.
