Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie Split, Say Reports

Movie stars Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have broken up permanently, reports the News of the World.

The British tabloid states that the actors signed a contract akin to a pre-nuptual agreement in early January with divorce lawyers, and are expected to make an announcement soon that their romantic relationship is over.  The document, which details the split of their $312 million fortune, is unique because Pitt and Jolie never married.

In the arrangement, Angelina Jolie will retain full-time custody of their six children, though the two will share joint custody, and Brad Pitt is expected to play an active role in the children’s future.

Adding futher fodder to the speculation of their break up, Brad Pitt attended the recent Haiti fundraiser telethon without Angelina.  While his ex-wie Jennifer Aniston was also in attendance, US Magazine reported that the two ‘did no cross paths.’
