Hollywood super couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt shocked their fans worldwide when it became public knowledge in September 2016 that Angelina had indeed filed for divorce.

As we all know it did not take very long, after the official divorce announcement, for the rumors, speculations and gossip to start flaring up. However, both Pitt and Jolie remained rather mum regarding their split.

In fact, Angelina not only decided to remain silent, but pretty much disappeared out of the public eye as well, that is up until now.
