Los Angeles - Brad Pitt is reportedly "furious" with Angelina Jolie.

The Maleficent actress filed divorce papers on Monday to end their two-year marriage, but the World War Z star is said to be angry at the brunette for allegedly spinning stories about his parenting because it could be detrimental for their kids.

According to TMZ, Brad said about the divorce: "She's just unleashed hell."

The Hollywood hunk is said to have pleaded with the 41-year-old actress to handle their divorce "like adults" because he didn't want to disrupt their six children, Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Knox and Vivienne, eight.

Brad is concerned about his family after a scrum of paparazzi formed outside their Hollywood Hills home, and the Los Angeles police are now patrolling the area at regular intervals.

He is said to have held regular conversations with Angelina about their split, but only found out about his divorce on Monday.

A source said: "Brad only found out about the divorce decision on Monday."

Physical custody

Angelina cited irreconcilable differences for their split and is seeking physical custody of their kids.

She is said to have decided to end their marriage because she was "extremely upset" with the way the Moneyball star has been parenting the kids and so decided to seek joint legal custody, but not joint physical custody.

It has also been claimed Angelina decided to split from Brad, 52, after an unknown "incident", which is said to have happened a week ago.

An insider said: "The final divorce decision was only made one week ago. An incident took place and prompted Angelina to act and file."

Brad has admitted he is "very saddened" by the divorce and is concentrating on his children.

He said in a statement: "I am very saddened by this, but what matters most now is the well-being of our kids.

"I kindly ask the press to give them the space they deserve during this challenging time."
