So how exactly did Angelina Jolie tell Brad Pitt that she wanted a divorce?

A new report from People details how Jolie decided to inform Pitt that she was filing for divorce. The actress/director reportedly "sat down, talked to Brad and offered to file [for divorce] together," a source told the magazine recently. "She said, 'This is what I'd like to do.' She explained everything. Angelina did what she felt she needed to do."

Pitt was apparently "wrecked" by Jolie's decision, and wanted to go through divorce proceedings on a more private scale than what eventually ended up happening.

"He was appealing to her to do this quietly - not to save the marriage but to consider the well-being of the children - and it was ignored," a Pitt source told People. "He is just wrecked by this."

Jolie now has custody of their six kids, Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10 and 8-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne, as part of the couple's temporary custody agreement. Pitt visited the kids with a therapist, who will decide if the actor is allow to have future visits unsupervised or not.

"He was willing to do anything, change any habit, change any lifestyle, to do what had to be done to make this work," the source said. "And by 'make this work,' that means doing what has to be done to make even a split one that is amicable and in the best interests of the children."

It's "been a traumatic situation," for the kids, a source previously told People, though they noted that Jolie is "staying strong for her kids." Meanwhile, a source close to Pitt says the actor "loves his children more than anything in this world, and they matter more than anything else to him. He will do whatever it takes to be with them, now and always."
