(Newser) – The statements are coming out. Here's what Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, and Angelina Jolie's father, Jon Voight, have to say about the impending Brangelina divorce:

  • "I am very saddened by this, but what matters most now is the well-being of our kids," Pitt said in a statement, per People. "I kindly ask the press to give them the space they deserve during this challenging time."
  • "This decision was made for the health of the family," Jolie's lawyer says. "She will not be commenting at this time, and asks that the family be given their privacy during this difficult time."

  • "It’s very sad. Something very serious must have happened for Angie to make a decision like this," Voight tells Inside Edition, adding that he learned the news from his son, not his daughter. "I don’t know what it is. It’s a sad thing. Say a little prayer. I am concerned for Angie and the children and hopefully I will be seeing them very soon."
