For fans, it is an end of an era. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are now legally single as per the court even though they continue to negotiate their divorce settlement. 

Amid her divorce, Jolie dropped 'Pitt' from her last name- two days after she became legally single. 

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, the former couple filed a judgment on April 12 to move for a bifurcated judgment, which means they could end their marriage even as they continue to negotiate their divorce settlement.

Sources told the publication "it was very important for the stars to emotionally break away from each other and begin their newly single lives, so the documents were fast-tracked with their private judge".

The former couple's six children are also listed on the document, but their names will continue to be hyphenated, Jolie-Pitt. 

The couple first separated in 2016. They were married for two years prior to that. The couple was together for almost 12 years before they announced their separation.
