The couple didn’t officially tie the knot until 2014 when they celebrated with an intimate wedding in France. Jolie filed for divorce two years later, citing irreconcilable differences. Although papers were filed in 2016, the custody battle between the parents of Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, and twins Vivienne and Knox, continues to wage on, so the divorce has not been finalized. As of August 2018, the two had filed competing child support claims — the latest legal battle in this long-winded divorce.
